Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

How do I bleed new brake calipers on a 2005 dodge power wagon?


your on the right track just make sure person on the brake pedal is holding them to the floor when you open bleeder and its closed all the way before the pedal is lifted, repeat till all air is out and you have a good stream of fluid coming out. and make sure your bleeding from furthest wheel away from master cylinder =1 passengers side rear,2 drivers side rear 3 passengers side front 4 drivers side front make sure you reset proportion valve just below master cylinder a rubber plug ,push it all the way in you'll know you got it when brake lite on dash goes out. I really hope this helped ,IF IT DID LET ME KNOW.

Rear passenger brake dosen't work


Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

1981 Silverado front driver side brake cant be bled.


Take the bleed screw out and clean it, it may be packed with dirt and plugged up. Keep trying to bleed till you get all the air out, and fluid has a steady stream out the bleed valve. If all else fails, rent or buy a pressure bleeding device that forces brake fluid into the lines

Replacing front brake brake calipers and bleeding them


jack up car and remove wheels, use a stick to depress brake pedal about an inch this will keep fluid from running out during replacement, loosen bleeder screws to relieve pressure, then ddisconnect brake hose at caliper, replace the calipers and reinstall hoses with new gaskets, remove brake hold down and bleed passenger side then drivers side.

Just put new brake caliper on front driver side


Gravity bleed caliper, just open valve and have a coffee break and close it. Did you buy a loaded caliper with new pads on it? Check the rear wheel cylinders they may be the cause of your mushy pedal. They are cheap too.

Break bleeding


try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps
