I think you are going to find the drums have been machined past their limit. check the outside edge there is a measurement stamped into drum. the only other thing could be proportioning valve stuck. when bleeding make sure you have plenty of fluid coming out. if not open rear bleeders(both sides) and stomp on pedal then close valves this should reset valve

Check to make sure there is nothing behind the brake pedal that is making it hard to press down. Then check the connections between the brake pedal and the things you replaced to make sure there are no broken cords and that fluid is getting to the places that they are supposed to. Check for leaks and clogged hoses. If they are air brakes, make sure that the hose is not broken and that pressure is getting to the brakes. If they are pad brakes, check/change pads, and let some body stand near the wheel and watch as you try to stop and make sure that the brakes work.

Alright, my first question as you seem to know what you are talking about is whether you are leaking any brake fluid? (I am assuming not, but this is a good place to start) Also, with the pedal being restricted with its movement, then it would seem that you may have a pinched line or you may have rust or something else in the line. Please check all of this and get back to me on what you find, if anything and we can work from there

Please be patient if I don't respond right away, I will try to get back to you within 12 hours of any further comments

best

Brake pedal goes to floor vehicle still stops


Is the brake light on? Check your fluid level. Pedal going to the floor could be because of a leak in the hydrolic system line, hoses, caliper, wheel cylinders, master cylinder internal and external leaks. Can also be because of over sized drums and/or under adjusted brake shoes.

Hydraulic clutch in a 2001 nissan altima gxe 5 speed manual


Open the hood and look for the clutch master cylinder.
It is smaller than the brake master cylinder, but should be very near it.
The clutch master cylinder is about half the size of the brake master cylinder.
Take the lid off and see if it is full.
If it is empty, the likely problem is the slave cylinder (which is mounted on the transmission at the other end of the brake fluid line), has failed and needs to be replaced.
It will likely not do any good to fill the clutch master cylinder, as you will trap air in the line.
The slave cylinder will need to be replaced, and the line bled to get the air out.
Be blessed.

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.


Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

After replacing drive side caliper, both front disk brakes, and rear drum brakes, bleed all three lines, both my front calipers lock grinding my front brakes. I am going to re-bleed my lines tomorrow but...


I assume you mean that you replaced the front pads and rear shoes. Or did you also replace the disks and drums?? Either way you should be ok unless you also replaced the slave cylinders on the rears.
The fluid flows back up to the Master Cylinder as you squeeze the calipers and the slaves to fit the new parts in. Some people pre-fill the caliper to reduce the amount of air and make bleeding easier.Now .....Grinding better be a wrong choice of words. Possibly you spilled fluid on the pads while bleeding the lines. This will cause a binding and shuddering when you apply brake pressure. This will also make you think the lines are not bled properly because of the increased pedal pressure you are putting on the wet/lubricated front pads. If so, replace the pads. Don't try washing them with aerosol cleaner cause it takes more time and money than simply changing them.
