SOURCE: Bleeding the brakes on a 91 Chevy S10 2wd

if you look on the inside of the wheel you will see what looks like greese fittings you need to have somebody pump and hold the brakies and then you need to slowly crack it open by unscrewing it untill you get air then wait till it stops t5hen tighten it and pump the brakes again and do this again dont let the brake fluid run out of the resivore ok pretty soon you will feel the brake pedle start to get hard then do this a couple of more times and then you will be done ok best regardss mike

have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.

Why were the brake lines replaced?

Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...

if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

Sounds like a leak in the brake line.
In the first place the front disc brakes do 70% of the work to stop the vehicle .
When you need to bleed your brakes you break into the system this lets fluid out air will get in every time so even a pin hole in the line or at a fitting will let air in slowly .The problem is air is compressible fluid is not so look for leaks at rear lines and fittings its vary common for rear lines to rust out and many inexpensive ways to repair them .
An other thing to know is when bleeding brakes is if you didn't open the front lines you don't need to bleed them but with the rears start with the farthest one away from the master cylinder passenger side rear 99% of the time and work back to the master .
I think your whole problem is a rusted out line 94 thats a lot of road salt good luck

All of a sudden i have spongy brakes on my 92 f 250. changed master cyl and booster. and rubber brake hoses. still spongy and nothing is leaking.brakes went from being good to spongy in one...

Check the rear wheel cylinders? Was anything leaking at the master cylinder? Does it have ABS?
Check the front caliper slides are free. Check the front caliper pistons for leaks as well. This is all assuming you bled the brakes(all 4 wheels) properly after all that replacement! You're getting air from somewhere for sure or if it has ABS, the pump may have a problem.

I had a rusted brake line to the left rear wheel and i replaced the section of line and bled the rear brakes. petal goes to the floor. front brakes lock up and rears are inop. found rear wheel cylinders...

First do you have ABS next did you bench bleed the new master cylinder if not you can;t bleed the rest of the system You have to keep in mind that you have opened the entire system up and there is going to be a lot of air traped in it Getting back to the master cylinder it needs to be bleed pirior to installing it you need a little kit put the fittings into the holes where the lines go put the little hoses in to the resivoior put the cylinder in a vice and push on the pistion from the back until no more comes out of corse you need to fill it first then install it and rebleed the lines starting at the ferthise cylinder away from the master and work to the closest and its going to talk at least 10 to 15 pumps for the rears less for the front becase there closer and there is less line to bleed Make sure you have no leaks first if you see anything at all stop and fix the leak Hopefuly don;t have abs thats a whole differant thing but the brake still work fine with out it get them working and worry about that later good luck

Have it done by a pro because any connections have to be double flared, then the brakes have to be bled.

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!
