What would cause no power steering or brakes when started one time but then there next start?


Was your brake pedal on the floor or hard to depress? Your chattering might be the serpentine belt system. Remove the belt and test quickly again for noise, you will not have powersteering or cooling or charging systems, but you are just trying to pinpoint your chattering so you dont have to guess. You might want to replace your vacuum valve at power brake booster if your pedal was hard. It is a oneway valve that opens when the car gets turns on and pulls down a vacuum to assist the brake system. Sometimes the stick. If your brake pedal was on the floor, which I doubt at all, do not drive and seek professional help. Maybe your pedal assembly is coming loose and needs repinned.

Brake pedal goes to floor after fixing leak in line and bleeding brakes


neither is bad. The proportioning valve is kicked and they can sometimes be a bear to re center. Here's the best way I've had success doing that. Before you try opening up any more bleeder screws you, 1)top off the brake fluid reservoir, 2) slowly pump the brake pedal, not all the way to the floor and without the engine running but with the key on, about 20 to 30 times. After you do that you very quickly hit the brake pedal very hard but not all the way to the floor. The repeated slow pumping of the pedal will very slowly put pressure into the line, even if it's air it will compress a little at a time and when you jab the pedal that one time at the end it will re-center the valve. Now here's the key. If the brake light is on it should shut off when that valve centers itself. That's when you must bleed the air out but whoever you have helping you tell them not to push the pedal all the way to the floor again or the valve will pop again. Open the bleeder to the caliper that had the blown line and then have them push slowly down on the pedal only half way to the floor and then stop pushing and hold position til you tighten the bleed screw. After you close the bleeder screw they can let up and do it again. If he pushes it to the floor and you hear a click that means the valve kicked again and you need to start over. Time consuming, yes but it works. I hope this makes sense. Sometimes it's hard to relay what I do to words on paper,.

HOW DO YOU BLEED THE BRAKES ON 100 SERIES CRUISER


Start the engine, fill up full the brake fluid reservoir, and let someone press the brake pedal down to the floor for 3 times,, bleed the bleeder screw behind the tire.. position yourself closed to back plate of drum or caliper for easy bleeding work. when the bleeding screws is loosed brake fluid leaks with a bubbles. then close it again and tell the guy in the pedal brake to press it again until a hard press is felt and bleed the bleeder screw again, stop only the process when there is a hard pressing already on the brake pedal which is the brake system is now working properly.

How would I bleed brakes for a 1998 pontiac grand am gt?


Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid..you would start from thevalve farest from the master cylinder first. Have someone pump up the brakes and hold the brakes to the floor while u loosen the bleedrer valve on the wheel. the brake pedal will slower go to the floor while pressure is being applied. tighten the valve then have your helper pump the brakes again till they get hard and hold them while you looseen the bleeder valve on the wheel again. Do this a couple of times in each wheel until the fluid runs steady out the bleeder valve, Then proceed to the next one.Good Luck!!!

Brake problem


hi this is air in the system if you pump them do they go hard as normal? what you will need to do is , starting from the furthest caliper away from the fluid bottle you have to bleed the air out, you can buy bleeding systems for a few bucks/pounds but you can also do it yourself, to do this, find a length of small bore clear hose/pipe, locate the bleed nipple on the caliper, find a wrench/spanner that will fit the bleed nipple, put that on first, then get your pipe/hose, and slide that over the end of the bleed nipple ( make sure the pipe/hose is a nice tight fit ) locate a small clear glass jar partly fill it with brake fluid, put the hose/pipe into the jar so the fluid covers the end ( we don't want air to go up the pipe/hose ) then get a friend to pump hard on the brake pedal till it goes hard, and when it does tell them to keep their foot hard on the pedal , you then undo the bleed nipple ( you should get some fluid come out fast) when the pedal reaches the floor ( this happens immediately if you have opened the nipple far enough, then when it has hit the floor do the bleed nipple up again before they raise the pedal keep doing this till you see no bubbles coming through the hose/pipe, repeat the operation on the next furthest away, and so on till all the air has been removed from the system, be sure to check the fluid in the reservoir regularly as this will cause air to get back into the system again if it runs to low....hope this has helped and good luck, please vote thanks
