I assume you have a full master cylinder.
Try taking one rear line off and pumping the brake with the cap on the master cylinder.
Pump it a few times all the way to the floor and see what happens.
If there is still nothing coming out, get a helper to put a wet finger tip over the open line and see if there is any vacuum (sucking in) while you are pumping the brake.
I didn't mention it, but I assume you already checked to see if there are any sharp bends or kinks in the lines going back.
You can always go to brake check for a brake flush.
They charge about 25-35 for this and they use a power bleeder that will force fluid thru the lines.
They then make all adjustments to the brakes.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have bleed rear breaks.I

I'm confused, how did U bleed the rear brakes and there's no fluid to them? first of all U need to get fluid to the rear.

  1. Make sure there fluid in the brake reserve
  2. leave the cap off the reserve
  3. crack open the furthest bleeder valve till fluid come out (take it off if U have 2)
  4. if nothing still come out, then U have a clogged brake line
  5. blow back through the line from the brake side (slow till it bubbles back through the reserve
  6. then gravity bleed it, tighten up the the valve
  7. now U can bleed the brakes

SOURCE: break drum

they just slide off, if it doesn't it is rusted to the axle face, use a large shot filled hammer and WD 40 and hit around the axle lugs until it breaks free, you may also need to back of the brake shoes using the adjuster at the bottom of backing plate, oval hole, u will need a "brake spoon tool" to do this.

SOURCE: rear drums on breaks 2000 dodge caravan

if its the first time there being taken off some times there are locks around the lugs that the company puts on to hold the drums in place while on the line there are two or three of them you must take them off first.

Sounds like a leak in the brake line.
In the first place the front disc brakes do 70% of the work to stop the vehicle .
When you need to bleed your brakes you break into the system this lets fluid out air will get in every time so even a pin hole in the line or at a fitting will let air in slowly .The problem is air is compressible fluid is not so look for leaks at rear lines and fittings its vary common for rear lines to rust out and many inexpensive ways to repair them .
An other thing to know is when bleeding brakes is if you didn't open the front lines you don't need to bleed them but with the rears start with the farthest one away from the master cylinder passenger side rear 99% of the time and work back to the master .
I think your whole problem is a rusted out line 94 thats a lot of road salt good luck

Can i plug my rear brakes(rusty line leaking and stuck in the middle of no where). ive got about 200 km to get home. its a ford courier 4x4.

You will have frount breaks but not the best thing to do by blocking the rear off. You real should put a new line on and bleed the rear breaks. If for some unknow reason you got in an accident bad thing could come from blocking the break line.

I have a 94 chevy cavalier z24 and recently only one of my breaks was getting break fluid and the other 3 do not what could be the problem

Are they disk or drum brakes? Any leak is not good, need to replace either the caliper (front disk), cylinder if drum (rear).

I replaced a section of brake line on my 1990 chevy s10 i bled the brake on the front but im not getting any fluid comeing thru on the rear bleeders

was the line going to the rear? if so on the front of thepropotional valve is a pin onder the rubber cover it should be in, if not you will have to remove the, one wire, sensor and look inside. there should be a little knoch in the center if not it will be to the front, use a small pick to slide it to the center replace the sensor and try to re-bleed.

Rear passenger side wheel/brake locking at first touch of pedal

You possibly have air in your lines. When you bleed them you need to start at the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. If you are certain you have no air in the line then you have a bad brake hose/brake line. Replace this and your problem should go away. If not then the culprit should be the distribution or master cylinder. I hope this helps.

Cant get the rear brake drums off

very tricky to adjust them down they do sv<k . Keep at it you need two tools a small screwdriver to move the spring out of the way and a brake adjuster tool to turn the star wheel.
Dont ever hit the outside rim of a drum it is now warped and deformed most likely unuseable now. Hit between the studs only. Also I recomend that if you are just checking them to have shoes ,hardware and wheel cylinders ready to be put ,in every caravan I work on needs everything replaced. Also this style of drum brakes is tricky it has two spreader bars and alot of springs. If you are not an experianced auto tech I would recomened you take it to one.
