You need someone actually in vehicle after you put the brake pads on start at one side have them pump the brake then hold down tight calipers until they are on rotor then do it again and again by then it should not be soft go to the next side and repeat the process

My back breaks doesn't work on my 2001 dodge ram 1500


Pull the bleeder out and get someone to mash the brake pedal down. If it blast out put it back in and then tell your helper to let the brake pedal back up. Keep doing this until you have all new brake fluid coming out . If it is still plugged up you will have to take out the brake pad pistons and clean everything inside. Make sure the bleeder is clean inside.

How to bleed brakes on a 1996 grand cherkoee after changing calipers


Easy way is fill the master cyl.,leave the cap loose,open a bleeder
gravity will do the rest ,wait till pure fluid runs out ,no bubbles,then the other side.
Might take 10 min. or so per side but pumping the pedal and bleeding can leave some whipped up air. Have to keep an eye on the fluid in
the master while gravity is working

Did you bleed rear brakes also? Should do all 4 whenever bleeding brakes starting w/ right rear, left rear, right front then left front. Sounds like air in lines.

Try bleeding the brakes. But, it sounds like you have a fluid leak. Check all four wheels for brake fluid leaking.
Check frame for wet spots.
chcke that the Master Cylinder is full.

I have a 1994 Dodge Ram that keeps overheating.


have you replaced the thermostat , checked for leaks , etc. ? If so, when adding coolant did you bleed the system ? The system has to be bled of air bubbles . Almost all cars have a bleeding screw right at the thermostat housing. It is a regular screwdriver screw. you must bleed the cooling system after adding coolant . If you can't find a bleeding screw, get some thick gloves so you won't burn your hands . Turn the radiator cap until you hear air hiss out. Let it bleed until only coolant wants to come out into the reservoir. The car must be running to operating temperature when you blled the system.

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

you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps
