97 saturn brake problems. Replaced master cylinder, both front calipers and rotors. Replaced both rear wheel cilinders shoes and drums. Also replaced all rubber brake lines yet no pedal after bleeding....


Get another master cylinder,If you want to really find out if the master cylinder is goo open one of the lines have someone pump the brake,with your finger over the open cylinder line you will have pressure coming out, and if you feel vacuum has your assistant releases the pedal that a sure sign the master cylinder is not working,Also when you have a master cylinder before you install you need to bench bleed it

Rear caliper on 2005 Ford F150 not releasing, replaced both rear calipers, now pedal goes to the floor - no brakes at all. What can/should i do?


Sounds like it still has some air in the system or a bad master cylinder. First try bleeding all air, there is definitely some air left in the lines and this is most probably causing the problem. Bled the lines at the bleeder screws on the calipers. ---------- There is air left in the brake line.Any time the brake system is opened to replace brake lines, caliper, pads etc etc.Mostly the air enters the system, and that air has to be completely bleed.Otherwise the same symptoms , what you are getting will be noticed.-------- Brakes can be bled manually, with a power bleeder, injector tool or vacuum bleeder.IIt does not make any difference which method you use as long as all the lines and components are flushed with enough fluid to remove any trapped air bubbles or air pockets.----
The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car or truck, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.--------- When the complete air is bleed from the line, the brake should be firm when car is on.In your case brake brake pedal is loose and goes almost to the floor when car is ON.This is due to Air in the line.Get the complete air bleed from brake line.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech

We just replaced all the brake lines on our 2000 Concord. We bled the brakes, but still don't have great brakes. Is there steps we needed to take when we bred the brakes. The brake light is also...


When bleeding a break system have one person pump the breaks around 10 times and hold the pressure to the break peddle while the other person loosens the bleed screw......The peddle will then go to the floor..............Hold to the floor until the bleed screw is tightened again and repeat until no air is in the line............Repeat for all breaks and always check the master cylinder for low fluid level and top up.................Hope this helps you out.

I replaced a brake line on my 1993 olds 98 and the brakes still don't work


Did you bleed the line for air? If the break line was by the master cilinder, got to bleed all 4 tires, otherwise, got to bleed the two front or two rear tires.

If you step on the brake and feels spongy, is probably air in the lines, if it feels hard check master cilinder, if you hear an air leak, check brake booster.

Cant build presure on brakes for 1970 beetle


Bleed them.  Get some DOT 3-4 fluid (non-silicone) to keep the reservoir topped up as you do so.  The sequence is RR, LR, RF, LF.  You'll need a 7mm box-end wrench and some WD-40 if you're running original German wheel cylinders.  If you're using Brazilian or Mexican replacements, you'll need an 8mm wrench.  If you need to replace a wheel cylinder, you'll also need an 11mm wrench for the brake line and a 13mm wrench to dismount the cylinder itself.  If you're dealing with rear wheels, you'll also need a 36mm (or 1-7/16) socket and breaker bar (preferably farm tractor 3/4 drive style) and at least 5 feet of pipe as a cheater bar (I use 10').  If you're dealing with front wheels, a metric allen wrench set will be needed as well.  If there is no air in the lines and no fluid leaks, suspect the master cylinder and plan to remove the gas tank to get to it easily unless you have a lift.  NOTE:  You COULD find that the rod that connects the brake pedal to the master cylinder is out of adjustment.  Be sure you check all flexible hoses.  If it looks questionable, replace it!

Good luck!

Bleeding brakes 2000 suburban wsith ab


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.

Bleeding the brakes


You will need to bleed both rear calipers to get all the air out of the lines. This will take alot of time and patience to do this, but thats all you will need to do. It will take a while to bleed out all the air since they are very long lines your going through. You can just bleed the back, but since its right at the master cylinder I would do the back ones first and then the front ones just to be on the safe side. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC
