Question about Cars & Trucks
This week no one even puts down a vehicle or any info
of what was done & by whom Please do that
Spongy is a system not bleed correctly & it has to be
flushed every 2 years on all vehicles
If the car is 10 years old you need to clean out the moisture
from the master cyl piston,replace flex hoses & calipers

SOURCE: unable to bleed front brakes
loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light

SOURCE: spongy brakes after bleeding
If the brakes are spongy, THERE IS STILL AIR IN THE SYSTEM. Bleed brakes again, and a 3rd time if necessary. If you are MANUALLY bleeding, by having a helper pump up the brakes, make sure they hod the PEDAL DOWN till you close the bleeder valve, or you will **** back in more air. Start bleeding the brakes from FURTHEST WHEEL, which is usually R/R. Hope this helps
