Question about Cars & Trucks
You need to adjust the right rear brake with the adjuster
Posted on Nov 22, 2013
Manually adjust the rear brakes up to just touching the drums the drums .en turning the drum a very slight scrape would be about right. Adjust both sides evenly. I hope that you assembled the brake shoes correctly

Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

You don't say what brakes.
I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.
Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.
My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.
You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.

SOURCE: brake bleeding
if you didn't bleed the lines after putting the master in. then there is a good chance there is air in the lines now. may go through a quart of brake fluid before all the air is out. remember to start at r-rear/ l-rear/ r-front/ l-front last.will take some time. don't forget to adjust the rear brake while your there to help with the pedal
