I have very bad news brake system + atf = complete brake system replacement. the rubber o-rings and seals that are used in brake systems that are compatible with brake fluid are absolutely not compatible with any other fluid in a vehicle. if you haven\'t used your brakes at all since the atf was put in then suck it out remove and clean brake master reservoir. but if you\'ve driven it and used the brakes it\'s all got to go except the steel brake lines which can be flushed out once you remove the rest of components. and I mean all of them calipers, hoses, master cylinder, abs hydraulic unit it\'s all junk now.

SOURCE: brakes won't bleed on a 2001 GMC Z71 four-wheel drive

check your calipers to make sure the bleeder is on the top! If not it will create a pocket of air in the chamber that won't bleed out!

2001 mitsubishi montero sport 4wd battery and brake lights are on.


I doubt it is the belt because if the belt is slipping you should hear it.
The alternator could be about to crash and not charging at lower speeds.
You would check alternator output to find out.
The battery and brake warning lights are on the same circuit.

Brake lights stay on when headlights are on even when I'm not braking. 2001 mitsubishi montero sport


It is possible that you have a bad brake light switch that is sticking. (However, this will usually happen all the time, not just with the headlamps on.)

You MAY have a defective bulb. Sometimes the wires inside a bulb will "warp" from heat and cause a short in the bulb where the tail/brake filaments will touch each other.

Also make sure that all of the tail/brake lamp bulbs are the CORRECT bulbs for the vehicle.

A bulb that is installed incorrectly can also cause this.

If you have trailer wiring on your Montero, this is also a likely source of a short between the tail/brake lamps.

Finally, check the sockets to make sure they are not shorted.

I have a 2003 montero sport and the breaks are not bleeding right. I have blead them until the fluid is clear and the breaks are still spongy going to the floor board. Any thoughts?


test your master cylinder and calipers and wheel cylinders. raise one or 2 wheels or 4 if you got the equipement, turn the wheels by hand and have an assistant apply the brakes to see which one/ones are defective. when your brake fluid changes color because of contamination, the first contaminent is rubber from the brake system

Need help in replacing front and rear brakes on a 2003 mitsubishi montero full size


Hi there,

The pads are easy to change. You do not need any special tools. If there are no grooves in the rotors I would just put on new pads. Don't get cheap pads or they will squeek. I would strongly suggest that you flush out the old brake fluid. You will be amazed at how brown and gunky the old fluid is. Flushing the fluid regularly will help make your calipers and master cylinder last a long time. I like to use Valvoline Synpower brake fluid, it is a couple bucks more but it is DOT 4.

One last tip. When compressing the brake caliper piston you do not want to push the fluid back up to the system, because you might get some crud into the ABS module. Therefore, when compressing the piston, loosen the bleed screw to let the fluid flow out of the bleed screw.

This is how to get it done:
  • Remove the old fluid from the master cylinder resevior with a turkey baster. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Remove the right rear wheel and bleed/flush the brakes with the old pads on. Top up master cylinder with fluid(important). Remove the caliper, open the bleed screw and compress the piston, close the bleed screw.
  • Install new pad and caliper
  • Bleed again. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Repeat on remaining 4 wheels RR, LR, RF, LF.
Glad to be of help!!!

Bleeding brakes on a 2001 montero sport with abs


start from the rr to lr then rf to lf replace any brakefluid lost from master cylinder before and after each wheel is bled you will need an assistant to depress the brakes as you bleed them or better to use a rubber hose that will fit over the bleeder screw and submerge the other end into a container of brake fluid open the bleeder screw approximately 1\2 turn and gently push brake pedal to floor and slowly let up until no bubbles are visible when you depress brake pedal. always start from furthest bleeder and work to closest to master cylinder.
