Firstly it might be an idea to release the brakes so you can get the vehicle to a suitable place for repair. Something has gone wrong in the brake master cylinder or the pressure valve (if fitted) although I suspect the former. The hydraulic pressure can be released by loosening the nut on the brake pipe that goes to the rear brakes or undoing the bleed nipples on the rear cylinders a couple of turns. Try to bleed the brakes enough to get them working and then drive to a place of repair. Otherwise remove the master cylinder, strip down and repair or replace.

Brake pedal


Did you ensure that the master brake cylinder was topped up properly whilst you bled the back brake shoes?

If you did so and the brakes are free of air in the lines, then you still have to adjust the brake shoes to their operating position. Secure vehicle from movement. Jack back wheels of the ground, support with jack stands. Remove the rubber grommets that covers brake adjustment wheels. Turn star wheel adjuster with special adjustment tool or a wide blade screw driver. Lock the wheels with the adjustments, push in brake pedal until you have pressure, back off adjustments until wheel runs freely. you should have plenty of pedal now. Make sure master is at the right level at all times.

If you don't have pedal now then I would suggest you still have air in the brake lines.. If you pump the brakes until you have pressure and the pedal feels spongy , then you still have air in the line somewhere. Bleed until air is removed.

How do you bleed breaks for a 99 isuzu rodeo v6 ls


You'll need a helper to push on the brake pedal. Starting at the passenger rear open the bleeder screw and have your helper push down slowly on the brake pedal. Close the bleeder and have the helper let up on the brake pedal. Repeat this process until either there is no more air coming out of the bleeder or the fluid looks clean. Continue this same process at the drivers rear, then the passenger front, and finally ending with the drivers front. It is important not to let the brake pedal travel all the way to the floor during this process. Let it go to the floor can ruin the master cylinder. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have replaced all brake parts including front brake hoses and let all the brake fluid to drain out of the master cylinder. Went to bleed the brakes and it appeared to bleed all air out of the lines etc.....


U forgot to bleed the BRAKE MASTER! When ur bleeding the brakes, make sure ur engine is RUNNiNG. I f u haven't got any BLEEDiNG tools that sucks all the fluid in ur car, try Bleeding first the master, 2nd will be the front wheel brakes, and the REAR brakes! If everything FAiLS go to ur nearest garage and have them fix it! Drive slowly, using ur engine and hand brake! Hope that helps u out!

Unless you really know what you are doing it is best to get a mechanic to repair this. People's lives and safety are at risk and you could be held legally if something went wrong with your repair job. I would not touch it.
