If this is a 5 speed stick the small resevore is for your clutch mastercylinder.

I have a 96 f150 4x4 i hve bleed the brakes over and over and the pedal justs goes to the floor when runing

You need to have the ABS hydraulic control block bleed, that takes a special tool only the dealer or a well equipped brake shop has. You can't do this at home the tool cost a bloody fortune.

How do I bleed the brakes on my 1997 geo metro?

every vehicle has a brake caliper and or a wheel brake cylinder, on these are a bleeder screw that kinda looks like a grease fitting. locate this bleeder and break free so it turns freely (un screws and screws in ) do this to both sides of the front or rear of vehicle. the brake system shares the same brake master cylinder and fluid, but runs seperate features that operate the front or the rear brakes. Now that bleeders are free and turn easily make sure you tighten them . it doesnt take much just snug them. now fill master cyl with brake fluid dot 3. put cap on master cylinder. have a helper sit in car and pump breaks, at the fifth (5) pump hold brake pedal to the floor, and keep continuous pressure, at this time you loosen or (crack) the bleeder screw allowing fluid and air to escape,tighten screw, and repeat. after second time check fluid in master cylinder and fill. proceed this step on one side untill air bubbles are no longer present, then repeat same procedure on other side. The vehicle does not have to be running. Tell your helper to hold down brakes, and do not release untill told,open bleeder,fluid and air will escape,tighten bleeder screw and then tell them ok pump brakes,after 5 pumps you yell down and they hold down,loosen and bleed,tighten and yell pump. check fluid often and fill, wear eye protection.

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 whose parking brake emergency light sometimes turns on, but not often. It seems the problem is a sticky switch. What do you think and where is the switch? Thanks.


Check your brake fluid level and the condition of your brake pads/shoes.

The ABS and/or Brake Light some times come on when the fluid level is low.

If you still want to check the switch, it is located on the upper part of the brake pedal

My parking break light and my abs light are both on on my 1997 F150. What could be wrong and/or how can I fix it

This is an indication that the brake system is faulty.

Check the brake fluid level
check the brake pads.

That should be the solution.

Trying to bleed abs brakes on my 1997 ford f150

Bleed your brakes by filling the master cylinder, then bleed at the wheels in the following order: right rear, left rear, right front and left front, ensure the master stays full and then test to ensure all air is out

Replace rusted brake lines for ford van F150 1998. How i bleed the brakes

There is a bleeder screw at each caliper/wheel cylinder. You looosen this screw (don't remove it) and have someone depress brake pedal and hold it down. Tighten bleeder screw, release brake pedal, and repeat until you get only fluid (no air) from the bleeder.

Catch the fluid in something to kep it off the ground. Make sure you keep the master cylinder reservoir full of fluid during this process or you'll get air back in the lines.

You may have to do this several times for each wheel.

I'm having the exact problem! To get it in gear, turn key to unlock, put in neutral, start then in gear. That's as far as I've gotten with a solution to at least drive it. Next will check the brakes...yeah it sucks! Hope there's better advice commong...
