SOURCE: Bleeding brakes

No need to run the engine. Start the bleed procedure from the caliper farthest from the master cylinder, and work toward it. This means bleed the passenger rear first, then the driver rear, then passenger front, then driver front. Don't stop bleeding any caliper until you get three or so consecutive streams of air-free fluid through the bleeder. Monitor the level of fluid in the cylinder, and be sure the cap is on while bleeding - only open it to add additional fluid as needed.

SOURCE: Spongy brakes after bleeding them 2 times. Should I try to bleed the master cylinder or replace it?

Honestly your guess is as good as mine. But I don't think the master cylinder is NOT bad you still have air in the system. Get a big bottle of brake fluid bleed all four sides until you run out of fluid or your brakes work properly. You should divide the bottle's content in four, then use each quantity in each side. You'll be removing air and contaminated fluid from the system. Get a small hose that fits on the bleeders and an appropriate container. I have a good feeling if you do this your brakes will work just fine. I don't know how you are bleeding the brakes. I'll let you know the proper way just in case. This is a two man job, with the wheel off, have someone start the car. Have them pump the brakes a few times to get pressure. 1With the brake pedal UP open the bleeder, 2then have your assistant press the brake pedal all the way down and leave it completely pressed down. 3Close the bleeder valve, once close and only with the valve closed have'm release the brake. Repeat as necessary, bake depressed, open valve first then press brake. DO NOT depress until valve completly closed. Close valve THEN depress. Good Luck!

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.

SOURCE: how to bleed brakes on 1500 1999 silverado

In order to do this. Jack up the car on tire at a time. Look underneath the car and you should see a bleeder valve. Attach a hose to the valve, then run the valve into a jar filled with brake fluid. Have some apply pressure to the brake pedal. Open the valve insuring the hose is in the brake fluid. Do Each wheel on wheel at a time. Refill the brake resivor each time After bleeindg all brakes refill resivor. .

Why does my brake pedel go down after I replaced my master cylinder?


Did you properly refill the brake system? Did you bleed it to get rid of air?

Okay,the break peddle go all the way down. No presser in the breaks


Check the brake fluid level in the Master Cylinder. If it is good, then the most likely problem is a failed master cylinder. If the fluid is low or there is no fluid, you will need to track down and fix the source of the leak, bleed the brake system of air, and retest.

Break line on rear wheel is broken would like to repair


you can replace the brake line but you will have to bleed the brake system after that, this could be a problem if you have never done it before. My suggestion is to buy the brake line and and have a professional bleed the system.

Repair leak in rear brake line.


You CANNOT repair a leaky line, I'm afraid. You will need to replace the leaky section. Don;t forget to bleed the brakes afterwards.

My brakes are going to the floor


Hi, the likely cause is a leak that has used all the fluid in the reservoir and drawn air into the system. You will need to find the leak, repair it, and then bleed the whole system of air. Likely places for the leak are at the back of the master cylinder or at any of the 4 wheels. It is possible to draw air without a leak if your front brakes are extremely worn. If this is the case, replace the front brake pads and bleed only the front wheels. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Brake fluid leaking from left rear wheel


You have a leaky wheel cylinder. When you replace the wheel cylinder, you will also need to replace the contaminated brake shoes. Use plenty of brake cleaner (solvent) to remove all of the oil and have an assistant help you bleed the brake lines.

1998 Durango, replaced brake line that was rusted in two, (was long line under drivers side to rear) bled all four brakes, abs and brake light are now on and will not go off. Have read it could be rear...


Dear Brake Line....
I read your paragraph and if this brake light was never on previously to the brake line repair....then all it sounds like to me is that you have air enclosed in the braking system still. I would strongly advise that you bleed the braking system again....also bleed the master cylinder if you replaced a line of the master cylinder also...to make this easier on you your local auto parts store makes what they call one man bleeders that you can buy then install to bleed the system then remove and replace with regular brake bleeders.....just do a quick double check also to make sure that the line you replaced doesn't have any brake fluid leaking out also...any questions get back to me.....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!

I need to replace a front brake line on my 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 duelly. This is an ABS system. The dealer's mechanic said it would be an easy fix...just unbolt at both ends and replace. My repair manual...


no it is not that difficult you need to change the line then bleed the affected brake which consists of two people one pumping up and holding the brake pedal down and the other one loosening off the bleeder valve to let the air out depending on how much air is in the system is how long it will take to get them bled after replacement
