I have a 2003honda pliot i cant get no brake fluid to pump up to the cliper

Abs systems are harder to bleed but it is quite possible the the bleeder screw is just plugged up. Pull the bleeder screw completely out and see iff you can blow through it and see if brakefluid finally comes out of caliper. If it does not trace the line backwards and crack lines open to see when and where the clog begins. Sometimes the abs unit can become clogged because brake fluid breaks down and becomes a sludge because hardly anyone flushes the brake fluid anymore. Brake fluild needs replaced after atleast by second brakejob, otherwise it breaks down from all the heat created from pressurizing and depressurizing in the brake system. Good luck finding your clog. I would advise removing your brake master cylinder reservoir and clean it out and clean out the brake ports in the master before reinstalling. Flush your whole system and your brake system will last for many more years.

Back breaks won't bleed

If the brakes work, then you know that fluid is moving which would indicate that the bleed screws are likely clogged and will need to be replaced. If there is not fluid moving to the back then you may have a bad master cylinder or a brake line has clogged or failed. The flexible lines that run from the hardlines to the wheel do degrade over time and can clog up and not allow brake fluid to flow.

1986 toyota 4x4 pickup brakes go to the floor

Check your brake lines/connections for leakage and clogging. Any leaks/clogs? Fix the problem spots. Then bleed the system. This is best/easiest done with two people. Brake bleeding steps can be found in pretty much ANY auto repair manual for a vehicle with conventional hydraulic brakes.

Clogged brake line. need diagram

What symptoms are you getting? If a caliper is dragging it may not be the brake line. Make sure the master cylinder isn't overfilled so the fluid can expand. Brake lines rarely clog with the correct fluid in the lines. The calipers might also be bad - if so - replace both - not just one.

I can't get back brakes on a 1995 Monte Carlo. I replaced the brake pads all around and put new line on the back. It had good brakes on the back when I started.

Have some one pump the break up and hold the peddle doun to the floor and take back break line loose and see if you are getting fluid to the back. if not you need to check lines for bends and clogs. And check the resivor for clogs and fluid. If you are then change the break cylinder It has gone bad.

is the brake pedal soft or go to the floor? you could have a rusted out or pinched metal brake line, or the rubber brake hose could be clogged, you must trace the hose and metal line back to the master and look for leaks or rust, then unscrew the line from the master and make sure you get fluid there while depressing the pedal, and just keep disconnecting down the line until you get fluid to the caliper be sure your bleeder screw is not just clogged with rust remove it all the way and depress the pedal to see if you have fluid there please rate -jeff
