Question about 2003 Pontiac Montana
We have replaced pads,rotors, calipers, and master cylinder on a 2001 Pontiac Montana FWD we pre bled the master and bled both front and rear brakes but the pedal wont get stiff it pumps up but doesn't feel right then when we start the van the pedal goes to the floor
Good! You bled the master cyl. before installation! The proper order of bleeding the lines, is to start with the wheel the greatest distance from the master cylinder. Then work your way to the next greatest distance, and last, the closest wheel. Make sure all air is removed from the lines before you proceed to the next wheel, and frequently check the master cyl. level, because, as I'm sure you know, if you **** in air at the master, you have to start all over again. I'm assuming you don't have a power bleeder, so with a helper do this with car running (make sure it's on safety stands and not going to fall on you!) Pump pedal 3 times, no need to mash the pedal into the floor, just 3 pumps 1/2 way down, hold 3rd pump at half way down level while bleeder is opened, when flow is about to stop at bleeder, close bleeder and repeat til no evidence of any air. Let me know how it goes and if you need any help.

Bleeding screw must be at the top of caliper or the air can't get out. Calipers may be on upsode down
