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

I have 2004 dodge ram 1500 I just put in a new engine, water pump, thermostat, radiator, hoses and a fan clutch still over heating any suggestions

Did you bleed the air from the radiator and coolant system? Every manufacturer has their own method for bleeding the cooling system as most are sealed units and they bleed themselves when topping off but not after a radiator replacement or complete flush. You must follow manufacturer coolant bleed specs....also did you test the new thermostat? I've noticed one out of 8 new ones don't work. Best to test in a pot of boiling water 3 times before installing to avoid the headache. I've learned the hard way. It's time-consuming to check it before less time-consuming than having to take it out and troubleshoot a million other things all because of the bad new thermostat.

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

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
