Bleeding the brakes on a 91 acura legend with abs

Am getting good pressure on R side front and L side back, but very little pressure on L side Front and R side back. Just replaced both front brake pads. What is probable cause of this?

    U can't in most cases bleed ABS brakes without the tool to hold the ABS control valves open for bleeding, u are going to have to go to the Acura dealer.

    One last note, u won't get any more help with the rating u left for the other expert, take it easy there, he was on his own time just trying to help u out,

Look for divider block that all lines from brakes come to below master cylinder.some are mounted in frame and others on fire wall below master cylinder.could be trash blockage there.possible solution is to undo lines that are giving you trouble there and at wheel cylinders and blow out with air and pressure flush with fluid to determine good flow.then reconnect and bleed again.hope this helps as you sound like a good wrench spinner...chris

YES on a 91 Acura Legend my brake pedal goes straight to the floor there's no pressure at all when the car is off is that the power booster


no-- it is a lack of fluid in the master cylinder or air in the brake system
a power booster only assists the brake action and the pedal push rod goes through it into the master cylinder
check for leaks in the system , refill the brake reservoir and bleed the brake system
it may be a failed master cylinder rubbers

My breaks wont work after changing the front rotars, calipars and pads. I bleed all four breaks starting with the back passenger side then back drivers side then front passenger side then front drivers...


As a general rule, if you have ABS you might have to cycle the pumps and valves to purge the old fluid out of the unit. This is either done via a dealer scan tool, a purge valve/bleeder valve on the ABS unit, or a less than ethical way. Drive your car and heavily engage the ABS, you know what I'm talking about.
Then you will need to repeat the bleeding process that you have already done.
Normal non ABS brakes, bleed once.
ABS brakes, bleed, cycle then bleed again.

YR 2000 6 CYL Mercury Cougar, when driving down the road the brakes lock down and it has been decided it is the front right. We have changed hubs in back and pads, calipers and pads in front, brake lines...


Hello, There are scanners made for the ABS system. There is valving inside the ABS unit which routes the brake fluid to the Calipers. It may be not so much that the right wheel is grabbing, but the left wheel is not braking.

There are also different methods to bleed the brakes. Some people like to pump them, some have pressure bleeders, some gravity bleed. I use a Vacuum bleed which seems to work good for me.
With a Vacuum bleed I can tell if one wheel is not drawing fluid or seems clogged. I just use the handheld Vacuum pump with the bleed cup attachment.

You should be able to jack the front up and have a helper pump the brake and spin the front wheels by hand. The action on the left and right side should be similar.

Before you go to use an ABS scanner, disconnect the ABS plug-ins and check for corrosion on the pins. Use a little WD40 or Electrical cleaner on the connections and then reconnect them and try it.
Remember to follow the pattern of bleeding the longest brakeline first. Usually the drivers front is the shortest line. All scanners are not equal, only the more expensive units have the ABS test function.

Good Luck with this, would like to know what finally cured it.

Brake line leak


start from the farthest, right rear, left rear, right front, then left front, take some time in bleeding your left front since it has more air induced during line replacement. good luck!

91 acura legend


There is a connector under floor mat on front passenger side.
With the car turned off, jump this contactor out and turn the car to on position. After 2 seconds the abs light will blink given you codes.
After you fix the problem, you will need to remove the jumper, and pull all 3 abs fuses. Wait 3 seconds a reinstall the fuses. Now plug the connector back into its holder.
Now start the car, and the code should be cleared.

Unable to bleed front brakes


loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck
