Sounds like the booster is not working correctly. In the booster or on the intake line right next to the master cyclinder there is a check valve. The intake lines sometimes get carbon in them. You can check it by: letting it sit for a while and removing the check valve and you should hear a release of air (vacuum). If you do not hear this then replace the check valve.$12~$14. Or start the motor with the check valve of fand place your thumb over the check valve and see if you get strong vacuum. If it's weak, it needs to be replaced.

02 Pontiac Aztek front passenger brake line to abs


Clean the surface of the ABS where the brake lines attach.Some are stamped beside each line connection with LF ,RF, RR, LR, master cyl input front, master cyl input rear if yours is a stand alone unit.Otherwise you will have to follow the line back from your RF wheel to the ABS unit to determine which connection is for the RF.

No brake pressure...


I would keep bleeding. If there is not any brake fluid leaking, there must be air in the system. with the master cyl cap off, open one bleeder valve on the front and let it bleed for 10 mins. close and repeat with the rest. there must be an air bubble in the system! good luck

The ABS unit should have the connection IDs embossed into the casting at every line connection.You are going to HAVE TO determine every connection line going to every component to make this work.

92 regency with abs...rear brake line broke, replaced line and bled line.. no pedal. i bled all the lines, bench bled the master cyl and the abs manifold and still have nothing unless i pump the brakes 3...


Brother, it's just the fact that there is STILL air in your system. Just fill the master cylinder, open the left front line and let it run into a bottle to catch it for a bit until you know for sure all air is gone from that line. Then do the same with the right front. Then the left rear, then right rear. This is gravity bleeding, no pumping required. It's the only way to know for sure that each wheel cylinder and line is free of air. Only let the master cylinder drain down about half way each time the tighten each bleeder. Refill with the drained fluid. Be patient my friend, it takes time to do it right, but it works for me every time. Good day.

I replaced the brake master cylinder on my 91 Lincoln Mark 7 with a non high pressure master cylinder and the rear brakes do not hold. Do I need to change the cal. on the rear also?


ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (and HCU-Hydraulic Control Unit)
General Information The 4-Wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is an electronically operated, all wheel brake control system. Major components include the power brake booster, master cylinder, the wheel speed sensors, and the Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) which contains the control module, a relay, and the pressure control valves. The system is designed to ****** wheel lockup during periods of high wheel slip when braking. Retarding wheel lockup is accomplished by modulating fluid pressure to the wheel brake units. When the control module detects a variation in voltage across the wheel speed sensors, the ABS is activated. The control module opens and closes various valves located inside the HCU. These valves, called dump and isolation valves, modulate the hydraulic pressure to the wheels by applying and venting the pressure to the brake fluid circuits. Some models are equipped with a Traction Assist (TA) system. The TA system senses wheel spin upon acceleration, turns on the Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) pump and applies fluid pressure to the appropriate rear wheel. Two additional isolation valves in the HCU will also close to permit fluid to flow only to the rear wheels. The TA system monitors TA usage to avoid overheating the rear brakes. If the system does sense brake overheating, the ABS module will inhibit TA operation until the rear brakes are permitted to cool down.

SYSTEM COMPONENTS The anti-lock brake system consists of the following components:
  • Vacuum booster and master cylinder assembly
  • Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU)
  • ABS module
  • Wheel sensors
  • Pedal travel switch

On 1992-1994 and 1995-00 a scanner is used to perform the brake bleed. But on yours, I think it's different according to the manual.

What do you mean change the cal. on the rear also? Do you mean Caliper?

Brake Pedal goes to the floor in my 1990 Chevy C1500 Scottsdale


do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.

Brake line diagram


Brake Lines and Hoses
Double-walled steel line is used in the hydraulic lines between the brake master cylinder and the front tube connector, and between the brake master cylinder and the flexible brake hose at the rear wheels.
Double-flared brake lines provide good leak-proof connections.
When replacing hydraulic brake lines, hoses, or connectors, tighten all connections securely. After replacement, bleed the brake system; refer to Section 206-00 .
The wet appearance of the outer cover of the rubber brake hose is referred to as "sweating." This is a normal condition for neoprene rayon braid hose and is not a sign of leakage or cause for replacement of the hose.
