Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

No air pressure in brakes

You have to go almost all the way to the floorboard to catch any brake. If you pump 3 or 4 times first, it is fine and feels like a brake should. Other than that, they seem fine. No squeking or grinding, just no pressure. Any suggestions?

Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
Good luck!

Sounds like you have a bad sensor. No you can not hurt anything by driving with the light on, but you do want to try to keep your warning lights clear

Put front brakes on hj kingswood bleed brake line .now brake peddle wont work


you need to bleed the brakes,starting from the wheel that's the fartherest away from your master cylinder. if you opened a bleeder valve when you replaced the front brakes,you've let air into the whole brake system.you will need 2 people to bleed the air out of the brakes.1to pump the pedal up for pressure and you to release the pressure of air from the bleeder valves on each wheel.start from the wheel that's the fartherest away from the brake master cylinder. passenger rear wheel.have someone pump the brake pedal up [pump3times]and hold pressure on the brake pedal,you open bleeder valve on the wheel to let the air out,or until the brake pedal goes to the floorboard[never let the person who is pumping the brake pedal to take the pressure off the brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder valve closed.or else,you're waisting your time. you may have to bleed each wheel twice,or until you see clear brake fluid come out with no bubbles or spurting from each wheel. after you're done with passenger rear wheel,move to driverside rear wheel,then go to passenger front,then drivers front,which is last.when you replaced the brakes,you made a common mistake,you opened the brake lines,which let air into the brake system.it's a very common mistake so don't feel bad.just go back and bleed the brake system.after you do this,you will not make the same mistake again,i guarantee it. thank you for choosing fixya.com and if you need further assistance,please repost your question to fixya.com i'm usually here at least 12 hours a day to assist people for free.that's just me thanks!

I installed new rear shoes,drums,&wheel cylinders on both sides of my 2000 caravan, the passenger side bleed out fine but I can't get any oil flow out of the drivers side. I used a vacume pump and...


Make sure the bleeder is open,and not plugged with rust,or road debris.
After this,place a 3/16 inch diameter rubber vacummn line over the bleeder valve or fitting and place it in a container of brake fluid to keep it from drawing air.Make full strokes of the brake peddle,and pull it all the way back with your hand.Loosen the mastercylinder cover,or cap and keep refilling,before the cylinder goes empty as this will induce more air.After you have most of the air purged out close off the bleeder, and pump the brakes 3 or more times holding pressure and have a buddy loosen the bleeder if there is still some air ,repeat more pressure bleeding with buddy,intill the brakes feel solid.You may have to adjust the brake shoes to the drum diameter to get a better pedal heith,so the front brakes will have adequate pressure too.Tap on the baking plate while adjusting the shoes.Best way is to lock them up and then turn the star wheel adjusters back both the same with no drag.Chek the emergency brake adjustment if too tight back off some or this will or may cause rear shoes to drag a bit and wear prematurely .

How to bleed brakes on a 99 jeep wrangler?


Hi, there are bleed screws on the cylinders located on the top and back of the brake plate right where the brake line is attached. Have an assistant pump up and hold the brake pedal, open the bleed screw on one side and the pedal should go to the floor, have the assistant continue to hold it down until you have tightened the bleeder, now repeat until no more air comes out. Repeat for the other side.

It sounds like
  1. you need to check your cap and
  2. keep your car running when you bleed the brakes.
  3. SHould be 3 medium speed depressions to the floor, holding the third one.
  4. slowly open the valve until the fluid has no bubbles.
  5. Start at the wheel closest to the master cylinder, Should be on the driver front side.
  6. Then do passenger front, driver rear, passenger rear.
  7. You may need to repeat a second time....
  8. Also check your master cylinder for leaks by cleaning it with break cleaner and checking for fluid leakage,

Wondering how to bleed rear barkes and calipers on


If you have two people.....press brake pedal...open bleeder screw then close, release brake...repeat until you hear no air bubbles. Fluid will comes out of bleeder. do not reuse. Brake fluid must be clean.
Do one brake at a time. You should feel normal pedal pressure when complete.
If you are by yourself, you can put tubing over the bleeder screw and insert into a small bottle to catch the fluid, and create a air tight seal. It is called a one man bleeder kit.
One other way, is to use a hand vaccum pump to **** to fluid through the lines.
Good Luck! It is easy as pie.

2007 gmc duramax brakes feel spongy, pedal goes with in 3 inchs from floor or bottom of pedal


You gotta bleed your brakes and get all the air out dude.  Then put in new brake fluid.  Afterwards, make sure to pump the hell out of your brakes to build up brake pressure before you put this thing in drive or you will end up in the neighbors fence or a tree will stop you.
