SOURCE: BLEEDING REAR BRAKES CAN BLEED ONCE THEN SECOND

Sounds like a problem with the proportioning valve. Try not to push the pedal down to far when bleeding. The valve sounds like it is getting stuck closed, and takes a little bit to release and allow fluid to pass again.

Yes air gets into the hole system. You need to bleed all 4 wheels.

SOURCE: replaced brake pads on 2005 chevy malibu, and

Brake pads will not fix a low or sinking pedal. If the fluid level is good and has not changed (no leaks) , the master clyinder is bad.

SOURCE: proper way to bleed brakes on 2004 chevy impala

To bleed brakes on your particular vehicle is the same as it's been for Years. Start at the wheel furthest away from the Master Cylinder. (a helper is needed to do this unless you have a pressurized brake bleeding unit). Start the car and have someone pump the brake up about ten times and hold the brake pedal down. Then at your right rear wheel, open the bleeder and allow the air and brake fluid to squirt out. Close the bleeder while your helper still has his foot on the brake and repeat until nothing but brake fluid comes out...then move to your left rear, right front and finally left front doing the same thing. Between going to another wheel, have your helper check the master cylinder's fluid level for if it goes dry during your bleeding operation, then you'll just be putting air back into the system. A couple of words of caution here...the first is that brake fluid is highly corrosive to paint, so make sure you immediately wipe it from painted surfaces and number two: DO NOT USE$ OLD BRAKE FLUID WHILE PERFORMING THIS OPERATION! Brake fluid has a quality about it that it absorbs moisture from the air...or the humidity. In this case, you're introducing water into your brake system which means all metal parts in your braking system that's in contact with this poor mixture will eventually fail due to rust. Yes, rust will form from old brake fluid with moisture in it and can cause a metal piston in a brake caliper to "freeze" causing a violent jerking of the wheel when applying brakes normally while driving. ALWAYS use fresh brake fluid (unopened), when performing a job such as this.

Hope this Helps,

I replaced all 4 brakes on my 98 chevy malibu. for some reason i am not getting pressure back. but am being told i dont need to bleed the brakes. should i anyway. or could the adjusted on the rear drums...


Both air in the brake lines and rear drums too far out of adjustment will cause the pedal to go to the floor repeatedly.

Bleed from the wheel that's farthest away from the master cylinder first, typically driver's side rear. Then bleed the others, ending with the one that's closest to the master cylinder. Generally, right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

Adjust the rear brakes until you hear them rub a bit as you turn the wheel, then back off a couple of notches. Be sure to use the brakes when backing up at first, let them adjust themselves up to where they should be.

I HAVE REPLACED ALMOST EVERYTHING ON THE BRAKES OF MY 2001 MALIBU. I HAVE BLED ALL AIR OUT OF LINES. WHEN THE CAR IS STARTED AND THE BRAKES ARE PUSHED, THEY GO DOWN TO THE FLOOR.THEY START TO COME UP ON...


the brakes need to be bleed of air using a special tool that holds open the hydraulic control valve's of the ABS Hydraulic control unit, better brake shops have universal ones the dealer of course has the correct chevy tool, without the tool u can't bleed the brakes completely

2003 chevy malibu. brakes go to the floor.


Master cyl. is "bypassing" replace it, but make sure you "bench bleed " it first !
After that then have someone get in car and pump up brakes, you then bleed them one at a time.
MAKE sure not to let the master cyl. res. go dry or you will be there ALL DAY bleeding !
