Manual

WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

CAUTION: Do not allow the brake master cylinder reservoir to run dry during the bleeding operation. Keep the brake master cylinder reservoir filled with the specified brake fluid. Never reuse the brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system.

CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surface's. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.

NOTE: When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or installation of new components, air can get into the system and cause spongy brake pedal action. This requires bleeding of the hydraulic system after it has been correctly connected. The hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment.

  1. Clean all dirt from and remove the brake master cylinder filler cap and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with the specified brake fluid.

  2. Place a box end wrench on the RH rear bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH rear bleeder screw and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  3. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  4. Loosen the RH rear bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out. While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the LH rear bleeder screw.
  3. Place a box end wrench on the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw, and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  4. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  5. Loosen the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out.
    • While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 7, 8, 9 and 10 for the LH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.

SOURCE: Bleeding Brakes on a 2001 Silverado Z71

Tony,

When bleeding brakes after the system has been opened for service (you didn't say if you were doing any work on the master cylinder) you should start with the farthest wheel away from the master cylinder, which is the righ rear. Fill the master cylinder, then have an assitant "pump up" the brake pedal. Tell them to hold it down firmly, then open the bleeder on the wheel cylinder(s). Do not release the brake pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve again. You'll know when the air is out - there won't be any more bubbles. Since this vehicle is 2001, this would be a great opportunity to flush the system. Just make sure you have enough brake fluid (DOT 3 or 4, depending on your vehicle). Good luck!

SOURCE: Need A Scan Tool To Tell ABS Computer To Bleed Brakes

WELL THERE IS A DIFFERANCE BETWEEN A SCAN TOOL AND A TOOL THAT IS CAPABLE OF OUTPUT CONTROLS SUCH AS THIS ONE A SCAN TOOL CAN BE BOUGHT FOR LITTLE MONEY ONE CAPABLE OF DOING WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE SNAP ON BRICK IS AN OLDER ONE WHICH WOULD WORK BUT EVEN THAT IS ABOUT $600 SO IT SUCKS BUT THE DEALER IS GONNA BE YOUR BEST BET HOPE THIS HELPS

Why were the brake lines replaced?

Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...

if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

SOURCE: 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.

1998 dodge stratus abs problems


When ever the ABS light comes on and stays on for more than just a few seconds it is to alert you to the fact that the system has a fault, what must be done now is have it tested with a special tool to see what fault code is present in memory and perform the diagnostics to repair the problem(s)

Does a 2003 toyota corolla has ABS on front and rear or none?


ABS was optional on S and LE models. Don't know if it is 4 wheel or not. You could count the lines coming out of the ABS pump if the car has one.

My ABS/Brake light in dashboard is on .


I didn't have that issue,but I had a 1992 dakota with
rear abs only & I just unplugged the module under the dash

I'm all for diagnosing everything & having it factory stock & working

But you don't need abs on a 4x4 that old & the rear hydraulic
abs unit ,gets so rusty that it is sad.

If you ever replace rusted brake tubing, remove it

They don't check that in inspection

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...


The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

When driving my low trac light comes on and when i press on brake pedal its vibrating it feels like something is rubbing together then it stops and my abs inop lite comes on and i dont have abs you can...


The most likely solution to your problem is that your ABS module is going bad, and that is bad news for you because those are very expensive. I hope this helps you out, and I hope I did not ruin your day with this news. The only way to know for sure what is causing your problem is to take your car into your mechanic. Good luck.

My breaks wont work after changing the front rotars, calipars and pads. I bleed all four breaks starting with the back passenger side then back drivers side then front passenger side then front drivers...


As a general rule, if you have ABS you might have to cycle the pumps and valves to purge the old fluid out of the unit. This is either done via a dealer scan tool, a purge valve/bleeder valve on the ABS unit, or a less than ethical way. Drive your car and heavily engage the ABS, you know what I'm talking about.
Then you will need to repeat the bleeding process that you have already done.
Normal non ABS brakes, bleed once.
ABS brakes, bleed, cycle then bleed again.

Linking error at data port, abs, brake warnings, air bag and seat belt lights on and fog light indicator blinking (car don't have fog light) all after car starts moving


I think your car has the obd2 code problem, you need to use a scan tool to diagnose the code, and then delete the code. I know this tool is helpful for your car. or you can take it to the ford dealer to diagnose it. hope help.

My 4 WD light is blinking and the ABS light came on the same day. Is there anyway to fix it at home without going to the dealer?


The only way to know what is wrong is to get the code(s) read. You don't have to go to the dealer for that. Any shop that has the capabiliity to read ABS codes can help you diagnose the problem and probably fix it too. As a rule the code readers that you can buy at the parts stores DON'T read ABS codes. There are specific code readers for that.

Abs brakes chirping noise, when pedal depressed,


worn out brake pads and slightly warped rotors. Most brake pads have small steel tabs that touch the rotor at a 90 degree angle when it is time for replacement. if you keep driving on the worn pads, it will stop chirping but that just means the tabs (also called wear indicators) have broken off and repair is about to get very pricey.
