Are the rotors worn? Worn rotors and new pads will sometimes cause this. The pad sits across the ridges and no matter how much you bleed the system the pedal just wont stiffen up. (See diagram. A - New pads, B - Rotor, C - Ridge)
If you did not install new pads you may also want to check the master cylinder seals. First bleed the system at the pipes that connect to the master. If the rotors are ok, you've bled the master cylinder and the problem persists then replace the seals or the complete master cylinder.

This job is a lot easier with two people but you can do it with 1 if you have to. Have someone sit inside and pump the brakes 3 or 4 times and on the 4th pump hold it to the floor(all the way to the floor and don't let up at all). While they hold it to the floor you take a little end wrench and (Starting on driver side front going to pass. front next then pass. back and so on) you should already have the tire off before pumping brakes. On the caliper(the thing that holds the pads) there is a little bleeder nut Should be near where your brake line goes into the caliper. Now while they hold the pedal down you loosen that nut just a little bit and it should spit a little bit then maybe some fluid will come out maybe not on the first time but it does happen. Just dont leave it open longer than a couple seconds. Just long enough for air to escape then tighten back down. Repeat all those steps about 4 or 5 times for each tire or until brake pedal feels hard to push in. Make sure while your bleeding that you check your master cylinder often if you let it run out u will have to start over from the beginning. Also make sure who ever is holding the pedal do not let up when bleeder valve is open. Same thing. I just wantedn to m

98 Olds Bravada. Ticking sound from around the glove box area. When I push on the break pedal the ticking stops and the break light on the dash is always on. Please help me.


You have a vacuum leak in the system causing several problems.
You will need to inspect vacuum lines from motor to brake master cylinder and to the A/C system. Just run your fingers down the lines looking for a burn or a brake in the line. Once you find the problem you can use a two inch piece of rubber fuel line or vacuum line to do the repair. The part should cost you no more than a Dollar if they charge you anything at all for a small piece of rubber.

I have a 2000 oldsmobile bravada I changed the front brake line but now I have no brake fluid going to the back brakes. I have tried to bleed them but only a little fluid will come out. What's wrong?


Are you just opening the bleeder and letting it run out? If so have someone pump the brakes and hold the pedal while you open and close the bleeder don't let off the brake pedal until bleeder is closed . Repeat this process until only fluid comes out . You probably have to bleed both sides . Keep an eye on the fluid so the resivor doesn't run out then you'll have start all over.

I replaced the brake pads on the rear of my 1999 Olds Bravada. We didn't bleed the brakes because we didn't feel that we had compromised them. Now the brakes are dragging and it seem


Replace the calipers my friend. Corrosion on the caliper pistons is holding the brakes on causing the drag. That rubber boot over the piston doesn't seal from condensation and makes surface rust/corrosion and won't allow the pistons to release all pressure.

Brake bleeding air


It is not easy to remove the air from a braking system. I find a bottle with a rubber pipe from the bleed nipple helps to stop any air getting back into the system.
