2006 toyota tundra sr5 crew cab 4x4 losing brake fluid in the booster ? What do I replace there seems to be some kinda control valve maybe for the abs in between the master cyclinder and the brake booster...


Take Off Nuts That Hold Master Cylinder To Booster. Pull Master Cylinder Away From Booster--Do Not Damage Lines--Feel With Finger At Rear Of Master Cylinder For Fluid--If Found Replace Master Cylinder And Booster With Total Unit Combo For Better Warranty. DO NOT FOOT BLEED--Pressure Bleed Or Gravity Bleed Only.

How do I change the brake master cylinder on a 2000 dodge dakota rt 360 magnum 5.9l v8 mopar


disconnect the front and rear brake lines, undo bolts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster. Bench bleed the new master and reconnect to booster and reconnect lines. Be very careful when undoing the lines from the master cyclinder as you do not want to damage them. Soak with WD-40 before loosening. Once everything is back in place you will need to bleed all calipers and/or wheel cylinders. Again soak the bleeder screws beforehand with WD-40 as they break off easily.

Do you have to bleed brake slave cyclinder when replacing


replacing brakes or the brake master cylinder, or brake caliper? If your just doing brakes then you can get away with not bleeding brakes. Just open the master cylinder before you push the caliper in with the C-clamp. If your changing the caliper then yes you have to bleed the brakes. There is a bleed screw on the caliper.

How do you bleed hydrolic clutch on a 97 Ford Pickup. I have tried pumping the pedal and it stays on the floor. I have replaced the Master Cyclinder and the Clutch cyclinder, plate everything is new


First of all, fill your brake fluid reservoir to the top. Not the clutch master (I will explain later) Now lift the vehicle in the air or crawl underneath it. This will take 2 people to bleed this properly. Measure the distance between the clutch slave and the nearest brake caliper. Cut a piece of hose this length to go between the caliper and the slave. Put the piece of hose on caliper and the slave, have the second person get inside the truck and pump the brakes. At the exact same time open both bleeders and when the pedal hits the floor close both bleeders (on the caliper and on the slave cylinder) do this until fluid starts escaping out of the clutch master reservoir. What you are doing is back bleeding the clutch from the lowest point to the highest point which is the direction air travels. Repeat the process until you get a pedal out of the clutch. This trick works every time for me, whether it is a bmw, ford or ferrari.
Good luck

I replaced both front brake calipers in front on 95 concord and there is no brakes now like maybe air is in the system three calipers bleed having problems with front passengers bleeding ?


Try pumping the brakes and bleeding it at the master cyclinder. The air bubbles will eventually work its way up to the master cyclinder, BUT also make sure you keep the master cyclinder toped up on fluid.

I just put new calipers on my jeep and anew master cyclinder when i pump the brakes and bleed the front calipers and release the pedal the fluid leeks back into the master cyclinder


Did u bleed the master cylinder before u installed it? If not, you'll have to also bleed the rear brakes. starting w/ the bleeder the farthest away, to next greatest distance,etc til u get to the closest bleeder.
If u did bleed the master cyl. before installation, I'm wondering if u did the following:
have someone pump the brakes (3 times, don't mash the pedal to the floor, just gentle push no more than half way down 3 times, while holding pedal half way down 3rd pump, open bleeder, when fluid or air slows coming out, close bleeder, and repeat, until only clean fluid flows. And of course, don't let the fluid get too low in the master cyl, or you will **** in air and have to start all over. Let me know how you do. countrycurt0
