SOURCE: How do I push the piston into the caliper to make

I have no experience of your make of car but most cars are similar in this respect.
The piston has a very fine thread inside the calliper and has to be screwed back in,just as if it were a big bolt.
You can buy a special tool for doing this but you may also get away with doing it with a large pair of long nosed pliers.....although you will find it a little awkward.
Take a look at the face of the will see two "V" shaped grooves opposite one another....use these grooves to twist the piston back into the takes a while because the thread is quite fine......the job is much easier with the proper tool.
If you choose to buy the proper tool, simply ask for a rear brake calliper piston tool.

SOURCE: Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a

You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

Why even with new brake parts in the front and rear on my 2995 Ford f150 2wd truck would front brakes work but not back ? I even put truck on bay lift and hit the brakes and rear just kept spinning.


Check your master cylinder. It could be a piece of junk lodged in the fluid port for the rear brake lines, or in the brake line its self. The fact that both rear wheels spin tells me that if it is a clogged line, it is between the two manifolds, (one next to the master cylinder, and the other where the rear brake line splits into two... one for each rear hub. Or it could be that the piston in the master cylinder needs to be replaced. I would disconnect one brake line at one rear wheel and disconnect the rear brake line at the manifold (near the master cylinder)and blow that line out with air pressure. . do not leave the rear brake line connected to the master cylinder as you blow air through the lines as you may damage the master cylinder piston packings. You'll have to bleed the brakes when you are done.

1993 Ford Taurus drivers side rear wheel cylinder piston is popping out

Your description sounds like the brakes are WAY out of adjustment. The brake cylinders need the shoes to hit the drum or they will do exactly what you describe. I always adjust the shoes until they lock the wheel, then back off until the wheel spins freely, usually 8 to 20 clicks.

Brake fluid is leaking from rear wheel of 2000 Ford Taurus

drum rear end i assume. It will be a leaking wheel cylinder. Fairly cheap to replace but you may also need new lineings / shoes due to them being contaminated by fluid.

I replaced a master cylinder on a 2001 taurus and bench bled the master cylinder before putting it on the car. then bled the 2 lines at the master cylinder and i am getting air out of the front line on...

try disconnecting the front line, have someone else then step on the brake pedal and hold it down while you re-install the line. If that doesn't do it, you probably did get a defective master cylinder.

Brake pedal goes to floor,replaced front pads rear good,bleed brakes no help

If you have replaced all pads, and see no leaks at any wheel, and have bled your brake system, then most likely your brake master cylinder has failed.

How to replace brake pads on a 1998 ford taurus

Too extensive to explain and diagram here; however,
Go to the "Reference Section" at your local public library.
Find the Chilton's or Motor's manual for the 1998 Ford.
Photocopy the pages you need using the public copy machines (10 ~ 20 cents per page).
You will need a large C Clamp in order to compress the brake caliper piston back into the wheel cylinder. Remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder; the fluid will "back-up" into the master cylinder reservoir when you compress the caliper piston.
Only two long bolts hold the floating caliper in place.

Right rear brake has slow brake fluid leak.It's a 99' Ford Taurus

leaking fluid will not cause a brake to lock up unless the wheel cylinder is leaking and caused the brake shoe to swell. If so, you need a new wheel cylinder.
