SOURCE: my bleeder valve is stripped

You can try some type of rust breaker and a vise grip to remove the bleeder. If the drums are worn, there will be a lip on the inner inside which will make it difficult to remove. You can try backing out the star key or you might have to crack the drum to take it off. You will need a new bleeder valve and a drum. Also make sure your emergency brake is not on. Good luck!

Bleeder screw stuck


Use the correct size ring spanner . use a hammer to hit the end of the bled screw while applying turning action to the bleeder. This will jar the taper that is what the locking action is and it will come out . Use a drill bit and clean out the hole down to the side holes and clean that out with a smaller drill bit. Do not damage the taper part as that is what seals off the fluid. You may have to remove the caliper/cylinder for the operation but mostly it can be done in car.

I put new brake pads on my 98 expedition the brakes bleed out but still dont have brakes do i need to reset the abs?


not sure why you are bleeding brakes just with new pad installation? anyway, since you had calipers off, make sure when reinstalled they were not turned 180 degrees. this would put the bleeders on the bottom instead of the top. bleeders on the bottom will never bleed air from calipers. what was the reason you bled calipers after pad installation?

My bleeders are rusted on my car how do i bleed them


Brush the bleeders with DOT 3 Brake fluid and let soak in for 24 hours, or so.
The Brake fluid should free up the rust.

Also, could try to heat it up a little with a propane or Mapp gas torch, or Oxy Acetylene (ideally), to free up the bleeder screw.

Replace if necessary.

I got the old pads off but cannot get the caliper back on. The rod will not go back into the rubber boot.


You will need a larger sized C clamp to slowly push the caliper back into its boot. Make sure your brake fluid reservoir kid is OFF,..allowing for the fluid to go back into the reservoir. Once you have placed the C clamp around the caliper, take an old brake pad and place it across the round piston...place part of the clamp over this pad and tighten the clamp..Do not place the clamp directly on the piston, you may damage it or compress it in crooked. so place a used pad across it. Push the piston back in untill its almost flush with the boot, making sure no dirt is on the silver exposed piston..u dont want dirt to go back inside the boot. Once its in, refit the caliper to its mount with the new pads.

2001 Ford Expedition XLT EB rear air bag suspension does not inflat


Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.
