Question about 1992 Chrysler Lebaron

1 Answer

Front brakes are not releasing

I have a 92 chrysler lebaron v6. The front brakes are not releasing pressure. Only the front. Rear brakes work fine. When I open the bleed valve on either side, depending how bad the brakes are already sticking, the fluid shoots out(1 foot). Once I relieve the pressure on one side, the other is fine. Regardless of which is done first. This tells me the calipers and hoses are not a problem. I have narrowed it down to fluid contamination (already flushed, no chage), distribution block problem, or master cylinder problem. Any suggestions on where to start?

    i was saying that contamination may have been present, so i flushed the system with new brake fluid. By contamination I meant possible air or water introduced to the system when a rear brake line was broken, then changed.

    not quite. Both calipers on front and both hoses on front have about 2000 miles on them. But I know what you are saying. The reason the hoses were replaced was the passenger front was dragging. And I figured while i was at it, i would change both rather than wait for the other to go bad too.

    Define your contamination!!!!!in fluid did you put wrong fluid in or a higher grade than DOT #3????

Okay did you pressure test your brakes??? jack up front have some one press pedal try to turn wheel then when pedal is released tire should turn if not wait 1-2 minutes then try to turn the wheel with no body pressing the pedal and if it does turn then I would be replacing flex hose!!! fact: if caliper is seized it will not turn !these flex hoses build rust under the steel fastener bracket that is moulded around the hose then slowly over times closes it off as rust builds and slowly closes it off to a pin hole passage i have changed thousands of these over the years! yours will probably be the same! brake fluid has no problem making it to the caliper and bleeder it is when you release the brake the applied pressure is gone and now it take a couple of minute or seconds to slowly return!!!!! I know this will help!!!!

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.

How to bleed the brakes


Start at the right rear wheel, while having someone in the driver seat, have them to apply pressure to brake peadle while you open the bleeder valve located at the top of the caliper. After fluid stops coming out of the bleeder valve close valve, and person in the driver seat can release pressure off of brake peadle. perform this till all air is out at each caliper. Right rear first, then left rear, right front, and then left front, be sure to check brake fluid level after each caliper is bleed.

How do you bleed the brake system on 2003 suzki grand yitara 4x4 with abs brakes


The hydraulic brake system must be bled any time one of the brake lines is disconnected or air enters the system. There are two ways to bleed the system; pressure bleeding or manual bleeding. Both procedures will be given here, although pressure bleeding requires the use of some fairly expensive equipment (a pressure tank) and is seldom used. Both methods are equally effective.The correct bleeding sequence is: left front, right front, left rear, and right rear. On master cylinders equipped with a bleeder valve, bleed the master cylinder last.
PRESSURE BLEEDING
  1. Clean the top of the master cylinder, remove the cover, and attach the pressure bleeding adapter.
  2. The spring-loaded plunger on the front of the proportioning valve must be depressed while bleeding. Wire or tape can be wrapped around the valve to hold the plunger in.
  3. Check the pressure bleeder reservoir for correct pressure 20-29 psi (137-206 kPa) and fluid level, then open the release valve.
  4. Fasten a bleeder hose to the wheel cylinder or caliper bleeder nipple and submerge the free end of the hose in a transparent receptacle. The receptacle should contain enough brake fluid to cover the open end of the hose.
  5. Open the wheel cylinder or caliper bleeder nipple and allow the fluid to flow until all bubbles disappear and an uncontaminated flow exists.
  6. Close the nipple, remove the bleeder hose and repeat the procedure on the other wheel cylinders according to the sequence.


MANUAL BLEEDING(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)An alternative to the pressure method of bleeding requires two people to perform; one to depress the brake pedal and the other to open the bleeder nipples.
  1. Clean the top of the master cylinder, and then remove the cover and fill the reservoir with clean brake fluid.
  2. To prevent squirting fluid replace the cover.
  3. The spring-loaded plunger on the front of the proportioning valve must be depressed while bleeding. Wire or tape can be wrapped around the valve to hold the plunger in.
  4. Install a box end wrench on the left front bleeder screw.
  5. Attach a length of small diameter, clear vinyl tubing to the bleeder screw. Submerge the other end of the rubber tubing in a glass jar partially filled with clean brake fluid. Make sure the rubber tube fits on the bleeder screw snugly or you may be squirted with brake fluid when the bleeder screw is opened.
  6. Have your friend slowly depress the brake pedal. As this is done, open the bleeder screw half a turn and allow the fluid to run through the tube. Close the bleeder screw, then return the brake pedal to its fully released position.
  7. Repeat this procedure until no bubbles appear in the jar. Refill the master cylinder.
  8. Frequently check the master cylinder level during this procedure. If the reservoir runs dry, air will enter the system and the bleeding will have to be repeated.

Hope helps.

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!

1996 Nissan Quest GXE model. Bleeded brakes. No parts replaced. Brake works normally. No drag. With ABS. Now, right rear wheel and left front wheel locks. left rear wheel and right front wheel turns...


you need to first adjust rear brakes per TSB in our file, 98-14=4 I think. (If you replaced or adjusted rear brakes)

Then bleed again, but you may need to loosen the pressure valve on the master cylinder, or apply very hard pressure on the dowm stroke with the front bleeder on the claiper open just slightly. You have to overcome the the valve spring in it as it is deisgned to send pressure to the rears before the fronts to allow the rears to engage at the same time as the fronts. It takes higher pressure on bleeding to over come.

Where is the fuel filter located and how do you replace it on a l994 chrysler LeBaron v6-181 3.0L


Take passenger side rear wheel off, put it on safety stand, and look along frame rail, ahead of, or near there, in fuel line, should be mounted to frame with one bolt through bracket on filter. Just have to pull/pry those little clips out sideways, to release, then pull fitting off, then snap them back in when new one installed. make sure you relieve fuel pressure up at valve on fuel rail. (cover with rag, so no spray in face, careful.)

04 Focus SVT- All brakes will bleed out except the right rear..??


Have somone help you as you bleed the brakes. Have them pump the pedal 3 times and hold the pedal down with constant pressure while you crack the bleed valve open to the problem caliper. Don't let them release the pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve. Continue this process until you have fluid coming out without air. Periodacillay check the master cylinder to be sure it remains full enough so as not to allow more air in because the resivouir ran to low during the bleeding process. If when you are done and the brake light continues to be on then you will need to bleed the proportioning valve until the system balances out on line pressure.
If this works can you please give me a rating??? Thank you.
