98 DODGE NEON NO BRAKE PRESSURE

WE HAD REPLACED THE ROTORS, CALIPERS AND THE MASTER CYCLINDER AND STILL NO BRAKES. WE DID FILL ABOUT 3 PINTS OF BRAKE FLUID AND WHEN YOU BLEED THE BRAKES, NOTHING SEEMS TO SQUIRT OUT. WHERE HAS ALL THE BRAKE FLUID GONE?

If it has not leaked anywere else and it has not came out the line then the system still needs bleeding. Start at the fartherest from the master cylinder which would be the right rear.

1999 Dodge Neon / front callipers, front brakes, rotors in front, and driver side knuckle.


things that have to be checked during a brake replacement process
the caliper pistons have to move back easily when fitting new pads
the caliper body has to move freely on the mounting pins to allow the centralization on the disc rotor
the brake bleeder nipple has to be opened when pushing the pistons back as the displaced fluid build sup pressure in the reservoir
check that the fluid level in the reservoir is not above the full line
check the brake master cylinder is operational and compensating ports are not blocked
basically the problems is that the pads are in contact with the disc and that is generating heat. that heat expands the brake fluid that has to be allowed to flow back to the reservoir
if the expansion of fluid is prevented either by over full reservoir or faulty mastery cylinder preventing the free flow back to the reservoir then the expansion applies the pad more tightly to the disc which in turns creates more heat and more expansion of the fluid
At this point and before you do anything else ,my steps would be to flush the system out using metholated spirits by filling the reservoir and then bleeding each wheel until clear fluid came out
when this is accomplished any black junk in the system is removed
fill the reservoir with new brake fluid and repeat the bleeding process until only brake fluid comes out
Metholated spirits is compatible with brake fluids and is recommended for the purpose
having cleaned out the system and ensured the free movement of the calipers on the mounting pins the pads should be in light contact with the discs and hubs should spin free after brakes are applied and released
In practice pads always touch the disc as there is no method of pulling the ads back and it is the air friction between pad and spinning disc that gives a minute clearance when travelling and if that ability is not allowed then the problems that you have will result

1999 Dodge Neon/brake pad rubbing on the rotor hub, replaced everthing and still having overheating, seizing up, till it becomes undriveable.what is the problem and what would you suggest ?


It could be a siezed piston in the brake caliper. It also could be a problem in the master cylinder. More likely the brake caliper, though.

Installed new caliber and rotor caliber still locking up, is master cylinder bad?


when you are done with a brake job it is always important to make sure you can slide the caliper both inward and outward by hand to ensure that there is no sticking, (that is with the pads in place and caliper piston completely depressed into the caliper) it is not rare to find that a piston that is very hard to depress back in the caliper is due to deterioration of the inner lining of the brake hose, if you have problems pushing the piston back into place most likely this is your problem. I have strong hands and is most vehicles I can push the piston back into the caliper by hand.

Installed 4 new rotors, 1 caliper and master cyclinder, can't get pressure for brakes


have someone pump up the brakes and hold to the floor open the bleeder on the caliper you changed when brake fluid comes out close. you might have to do this a few times until all air is out make sure you keep the brake fluid filled when doing it.
