93 tracker front brakes wont release without opening bleeders

Use the brakes several times and they get tighter till it wont move. I changed both front brake hoses. The same happens. If you loosen the line at the top of the hoses fluid squirts out and calipers release.The same thing at the bleeders.

    Master cyl I loosen the line and the brakes released

    You have to use them a fair amount till they tighten.

    After loosening them they feel a bit spongy

Try loosening the line at the master cylinder when they are tight. This is odd, usually the brake hoses would have fixed this problem. I don't see how a combination valve could cause this but let me know if popping the lines loose at the MC releases the brakes. It could have a bad master.

    Try unbolting the master cylinder from the booster(with the lines attached) when the brakes are stuck. If they release then you have a problem with the booster sticking. If they don't release, replace the master cylinder.

1985 international truck brakes drag and wont release totally


Test to see if the brake pressure is being released at the wheels. First pump pedal several times are the wheels locked then open bleeder screw if fluid squirts out the fluid is not returning to the master cylinder then do this again this time release pressure at master cylinder wheels move then the master cylinder residual check valve has failed (need a master cylinder) if not then the flex hoses are restricted

How to bleed brakes


to bleed brakes is a relatively easy job for two people although it can be done by one without a pressure bleeder.NOTE keep brake fluid levels above minimum at all times during bleeding ( forgot to do it my self on more than one occasion and had to start over, trying to do too much at once) To do by your self you will need the correct ring spanner for bleed nipple, a clear tube that is a tight fit on bleed nipple ( long enough to reach down to floor) and a container with about an inch of brake fluid in it (glass jar will do it, is easier to see fluid level), Starting with the cylinder/caliper at rear furtherts from master cyl (longest brake line from tee piece) place spanner on bleeder then fit tube, placing other end of tube into container below level of fluid,. release master cyl cap/lid (no need to remove completely) undo bleeder half a turn, watch for fluid in clear tube. this should start to flow within 10 to 15 seconds (if bleeder isn't blocked with road grime clean if required), if fluid doesn't flow by it self (it should but) tighten bleeder then release again quarter of a turn, apply foot pressure to brake pedal, hold pressure on pedal till you feel pedal dropping towards the floor (half inch of pedal travel should be enough) ( fluid in container will stop air being drawn into brake lines when you release brake pedal) check clear tube for fluid/bubbles, open bleeder further quarter turn, if fluid has filled clear tube allow fluid to fill container a further eight of an inch, then close off bleeder (make sure no bubbles appear in tube whilst this is happening other wise drain more fluid till only brake fluid is visible in tube ) repeat process on opposite wheel cyl/caliper, then repeat process on front caliper furthest from master cyl , then the caliper closest to master cyl last. If two people are doing the bleeding the same clear tube and container are used,as is the order in which cyl/calipers are bled. One sits in the car and pumps the pedal until it has some resistance under foot (Whilst the pedal is held down) second person releases bleeder, first person keeps pressure on pedal whilst bleeder is released (pedal will travel towards the floor) when pedal has been depressed as far as it will travel second person closes bleeder before, the first person releases pedal and pumps the pedal again repeating the process until no air bubbles appear in clear tube at this cyl/caliper before moving to next cyl/caliper. good communication must be maintained to make this process hassle free

Brake pedal is really low and i changed brakes and bleed them. ? Got no oil coming out back right tire though?. Could it be my master cylinder or my transfer box??


Do you have fluid coming out of your front left brake? This is the other half of the circuit.I think you need to open up the bleeder screw and have a friend depress the brake pedal to the floor slowly and hold it down.Tighten bleeder ,release brake,repeat this till you get fluid.If you don't get flluid after several attempts (6-8).Then it might be the metering and proportioning valve in the master brake cylinder is done and you are going to have to replace the unit.Unless you changed a line ,caliper or wheel cylinder there should be no air in the system. Also check for crushed or pinched brake lines.Good Luck

Need to know how to get the air out of the brake lines.


You will need to bleed the brakes. The easiest way to do this is to have a second person if you don't have a power bleeder.
You should have the vehicle on a level surface, then starting at the farthest wheel from the master cylinder (right rear) have your helper pump the brakes several times until the pedal is firm. Then have your helper keep constant pressure on the brake pedal while you loosen the bleeder (a small nut with a hole in it located towards the top of the brake backing plate on the rear). If this vehicle has 4 wheel disc brakes the bleeder will be located at the top or highest portion of the caliper. You should check that you have a full master cylinder of Dot 3 brake fluid and make sure the cap is on securely after you have bled each wheel. Running the master cylinder out of fluid will only cause you to have more bleeding.Only crack the bleeder open far enough till you see, feel or hear air come out but make sure to tighten it before you helper reports the pedal is on the floor.
You will need to be quick. Repeat this on this wheel till you get a solid stream of brake fluid coming out. Then move to the left rear and repeat.
Once done on the rear you will need to remove the tires from the front to have access to the bleeders on the caliper.Again starting on the left front repeat the procedure then move to the right front.
By the time you are finished your pedal should be firm and towards the top. If its not you may need to replace the brake pads and shoes and have the rotors turn or replaced. If you have rear drum brakes you should make sure these are properly adjusted up also. This too can cause a spongy pedal.

I am having trouble bleeding my brakes on a ford courier there is no pedal there when i have bled the brakes and i have also tryed changing the master cylinder and it is the same


Start by bleeding master cylinder, will take two to do this, have some pump the brake paddle about ten time every time, have them pump it and hold it down while you open brake line when paddle goes to floor close and pump again ( one of the brake lines at the master cylinder ), keep doing that till no more air comes out, then do the other brake line at master cylinder again till no more air comes out, keep an eye on master cylinder that it don't go low on brake fluid or you will have to start all over again, how go to right rear wheel and bleed till no more air comes out ( have them pump brake paddle and hold while you open and close bleeder valve, do not let them release brake paddle till you have close bleeder valve, keep doing that till no more air comes out, then go to right rear, then left rear, from there right front and last left front.Hope this was very helpful, good luck.

When compressing the front brake calipers do you need to relieve the pressure by releasing the bleeder valve or can you just compress piston in slowly so you won't damage the release valve on the abs?


no you dont have to open bleeder,you will not mess anything up i do it all day long, the reason for opening the bleeder is so they say you dont push debris from caliper into abs, but every time you step on the brake and release it fluid is flow in and out of abs, if you feel better by opening bleeder go ahead youll just have to bleed brakes when your done , good luck, hope this is helpful.
