Some brake systems have a pressure control valve usually soon after the master cylinder that cuts off the circuit with low or no pressure in the event of a leak or rupture of the line.
Trace the metal brake lines from the master cylinder down the chassis and you may find a small cylindrical valve that has 2 inlets from the M/C and 2 outlets leading front and rear. The method of centring the piston in this valve varies from one supplier to another but basically the good rear system has pushed the piston one way and cut off the front circuit. If you lightly release the pressure in the rear system, then try and bleed the front system it may push the piston back to centre. If it does, close the rear system and then front and see if you have any front circuit pressure.
This is only a guess at your problem but remember, brakes are your life, don't be embarrassed to get help or get a manual.

Hi Robert!

When bleeding the fronts and the pedal does not go down all the way, stand on the pedal HARD and see if it won't go down then...

The proper sequence is to bleed fronts FIRST... if you had done this, you probably could have avoided this problem... but no worry, it is just a nuisance!

If you still have a problem after trying this, you might have a master cylinder problem... the seals to the fronts might be leaking, not able to build pressure...

So try this and let me know how it goes, and DON't FORGET: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for helping you!

You need a scan tool to hold open the control valves in the ABS, air is trapped in it and you can't bleed the brakes until you have the ABS held open

It does not sound like air in the system or the pedal would pump up. I would tend to lean towards the brakes may need an adjustment and also the an adjustment to the rod at the master cylinder. You were very observant in noticing a change as that. You are correct in that the pedal should not travel so far as to be near the floor, this can cause an unsafe condition. Have this problem attended to soon to be safe.

Got bakkie started revs increase but cannot maintain revs and then cuts out

You could possibly have an air leak in your intake, hense the engine cutting out at low revs. Check your piping from the air filter to the intake manifold, and also your intake sensor.
Unplug the sensor and if it does the same thing then thats your problem.

1996 Nissan Quest GXE model. Bleeded brakes. No parts replaced. Brake works normally. No drag. With ABS. Now, right rear wheel and left front wheel locks. left rear wheel and right front wheel turns...

you need to first adjust rear brakes per TSB in our file, 98-14=4 I think. (If you replaced or adjusted rear brakes)

Then bleed again, but you may need to loosen the pressure valve on the master cylinder, or apply very hard pressure on the dowm stroke with the front bleeder on the claiper open just slightly. You have to overcome the the valve spring in it as it is deisgned to send pressure to the rears before the fronts to allow the rears to engage at the same time as the fronts. It takes higher pressure on bleeding to over come.

How do i bleed brakes of nissan 1400

Depending on the size of your bleed nipples you will need an 8 or 10mm spanner,a clear 5 or 6mm tube about 400mm long , a bleed jar(jamjar can do)and a friend to help you.

1:Fill up your brake fluid resovour to max mark and connect one end of pipe to one bleed nipple and other end in jar(start at the back wheels)
2:Ask friend to apply pressure to brake pedal
3:Turn bleed nipple counter-clockwise(normally only ¼ turn)until you see fluid or the brake pedal has bottomed.
4:Tighten bleed nipple again (clockwise)and ask your friend to release and then apply pressure again on the pedal.
5:Repeat this process until you see no more air bubbles coming from the bleed tube.(you need also to top up the fluid level by the mastercylinder after every few minutes)
6:Repeat process on the other 3 wheels and you done.

Please leave a positive feedback if I have helped you.
