Replaced brake line on 1999 blazer bleed brakes still goes to floor


you need to start at the farthest rear and bleed it make sure someone is pumping and holding brake while doing this .. then move to next farthest .. then pass front and then driver side until the whole system has gotten air out.. keep your brake master cylinder full all the time..

Bled brakes on my 1999 chevy blazer still goes to floor


this is an indication that there is still air in the system and the bleeding process was inefficient. Bleed the lines at the master cylinder first by loosening off the lines and holding the pedal down until the lines are retightened. Then starting at the longest line first bleed the system finishing at the shortest line . Keep the fluid level in the reservoir topped up at all times.

Cant get breaks on my 2002 blazer ather break lane breaks


After you fix a brake line, you need to bleed the line. There is air in the line that needs to be bleed out of the line. Make sure the vehicle is not running, totally shut off. First - find which tire the brake line goes to that you just fixed. Two - then have someone in the vehicle pumping the brake three times, then on the third time, have them hold the brake to floor. Three - open the bleeder valve on the brake caliper of the tire that the brake line goes to.(Note - You need the tire off the vehicle to do this.) Four - once the the bleeder valve is opened, and all the brake fluid, and air comes out, close the bleeder valve and repeat the whole process several more time. Each time you bleed the brake line you are releasing the air in the line, and creating pressure with just fluid in the line. Usually three to four tries of bleeding the line will solve the air in the brake line problem and your brake pedal will become hard.

2000 blazer brake pedal goes to floor


You have air in the lines, you need a dealer to bleed this as it has anti lock and that requires a special tool.

Replace brakes. now they go to the floor. bled air


When you fixed the brakes, did you take the lid off the master cylinder. I just wonder if you spilled out your brake fluid. The only reason the pedal should go to the floor is if the brake fluid is gone or the master cylinder is not working. Check the fuse. Check the brake fluid level. The pedal only goes to the floor if there is no back pressure in the lines between the master cylinder the lines to the brake pistion on the calipers. Please give me a good ratin and keep me informed.

Brakes to the floor(almost) 99 blazer


bleed the brake again. if the pedal goes to the floor with little resistance, then the master cylinder is your problem.
the shim is to depress the noise when you applied the brake. you can skip that, if the brake works without it.

1999 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4. Replacing rear pad's,& Bleeding Breaks


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.
