You need to bleed them...bleed master cyl first,(if it has bleed screws use them if not use line fittings) then rr, lr, rf, then lf. Maker sure that all fittings are not leaking and that while bleeding, master does not run dry. Use light pressure on master, don't "mash" it down. You may need to bleed twice to get all air out.
good luck. (any problems, post back!)

    If you have abs, its possible to have two lines...would not make any difference bleeding, but may make a difference when abs is on.(pressure modulation would be happening at wrong wheel)

I just changed the breaks on my 2004 optra 5 ls and there are still spungy? What could be the problem?


Most likely cause is air in the break lines. This can happen if the break lines are not bled during the break job. If you did bleed the lines during the job you may be low on break fluid. If the fluid level is OK then you should bleed the breaks again, making sure the fluid level stays high.

Rear breaks not working I've tried bleeding over and over and the rear still isn't getting fluid I changed the hose also on the caliper I changed still nothing can someone tell me if its the metal lin

Its possible that the line has rusted. Diconnect the line working your way to the master cylinder. See if you start getting fluid. Or you could have something blocking the line at the master cylinder.

I have a 88 S-10 with 4 wheel disk breaks,I have a new master cylinder and proportion valve,and all new break lines, I am trying to bleed the breaks but cant get a good Q is how much pedal should...

Power and manual have the same equivalent
Power is just easier to apply than manual
To BLEED brakes properly and this is the only way which will be correct is to start at the furthest point and work your way to the closest point upon completion. If not done this way air will be still in the lines

How to change breaks on 1994 ford aerostar

noonly a piston compressor or a big c clamp to reset the piston other than that you either have two bolts on the caliper or to slides. i recommend if this is the first time to change yo do it one at a time so can look at the opisit side if you cant rember. if it has drum breaks on rear you will need a break spoon to lossen shoes. berrydalewolf

Poor breaks

When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,
