To bleed the brake system open all the bleeders and let the system gravity bleed for @ 1/2 hour ensuring the master stays full. Then close all bleeders and starting furthest from the master (r/r) have someone pump the brakes 2-3 times,hold the pedal down, then open the bleeder,close the bleeder,and repeat untill there are no air bubbles and the brake fluid is running clear .Repeat for all wheels in this order R/R L/R R/F L/F ensuring master cykinder does not run empty. You cannot pump the pedal with a bleeder open you will be sucking air back into the system. Once you finish all wheels repeat to ensure there is no air remaining in system

Can't get brake fluid to flow out antilock. Can't bleed brakes because no fluid coming out of the antilock system. Fliud going to antilock none coming out. Any fix on this.

did you read the FSM book first, or pages on how to bleed your ABS system?, some cars require a scanner that can cycle the modulator to bleed out air.

(called the hydraulic unit by mazda)

seems its not special bleeding type. "says "in the usual manor"

  1. If necessary, remove the fuel filter and igniter mounting nuts and move them out of the way.
  2. Remove the charcoal canister from the vehicle and if the vehicle is equipped with cruise control, remove the cruise control actuator.
  3. Disconnect the brake lines from the hydraulic unit. Correct reassembly is critical. Label or identify the lines before removal. Plug each line immediately after removal.
  4. Disconnect the electrical harness connectors to the hydraulic unit.
  5. Remove the 2 nuts holding the hydraulic unit. Remove the unit upwards.
0.) disconnect battery first.
The hydraulic unit is heavy; use care when removing it. The unit must remain in the upright position at all times and be protected from impact and shock.
  1. Set the unit upright supported by blocks on the workbench. The hydraulic unit must not be tilted or turned upside down. No component of the hydraulic unit should be loosened or disassembled.
  2. The bracket assemblies may be removed if desired.
To install:
  1. Install the brackets if removed.
  2. Install the hydraulic unit into the vehicle, keeping it upright at all times.
  3. Install the retaining nuts and tighten.
  4. Connect the electrical connectors.
  5. Connect each brake line to the proper port and double check the placement. Tighten each line to 113-190 inch lbs. (12.9-21.5 Nm).
  6. Fill the reservoir to the MAX line with brake fluid.
  7. Bleed the master cylinder, then bleed the brake lines.
  8. If removed, install the cruise control actuator and the charcoal canister.

1992 mazda 626 brakes

It sounds like you may have a leaking brake master cylinder. Do not drive this until a technician can confirm my guess as to the problem.

Brake pedel gos to floor after bleeding

Be sure to follow the proper steps to bleed the brakes. Start with a full master cylinder. Have someone in the car pump the brake pedal 3 times and hold it down while you loosen the bleed screw to let the air out. The pedal will go to the floor and must be held down until you tighten the fitting back up. If the brake pedal is let up before you tighten the fitting, it will draw air back into the system. You may have to do this procedure several times on each wheel to get the air out of all 4 lines. Be sure not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid while you are bleeding the lines.

Brakes go to floor changed master cylinder to no avail still to the floor

ok there are a few things you need to check.. you said you changed the master cylinder.. did you bleed the braking system after???

  • remove from wheel,,
  • locate bleed valve on caliper / or unscrew one of the lines
  • pump brake and push right down and hole,,
  • repeat plugging the lines with your finger ,,
  • repeat the above 2 steps a few times
  • tighten the bleed screw while holding the brake right down..
if that fails ...

if that fails try adjusting the brake up.. its on the rear tires,, remove one and them remove the shield protecting the brake shoe,, see the turn bolt that adjust the pistons,, adjust that a bit until the brake is in the desired position..

check your disc pads to see if its wron out..

check your booster / change it..

Procedure for bleeding the hydraulic braking system

doesnt matter where you start. depends how long this took place. maybe start up front and save yourself some headache. That might cure it and you wont have to bleed the backs.

Hey there can any one help me to solve this problem please. Mazda familiar interplay 1989 has got a manual conversation but while i try to bleed the brakes,its fine as in the brakes are hard it fills...

It sounds like your master cylinder is in need of replacement or rebuild. Unless you have an air bubble in the line somewhere (bleeding should have fixed that), you have a worn master cylinder that is cracked weak. There are various rebuild kits on the market with instructions.
