If there is still a problem with your brakes take it back to the shop and they should look at it free. They should probably fix it too.

Spongy brakes

If you replaced the front calipers. Make sure they went on the right side. Bleeder valves on top. A guy at the shop just did that. As far as the rear, if they don't release, replace the brake hose/s

I took my 1999 olds culass in and had front bakes and rotors put on,they chk my bk brakes and said they were fine now its?

Take it back to him and have him check that the callipers are free to move on the on the mounting bolts. They do rust up and during the inspection there is probably extra pressure on one side of the disc rotor because the callipers are not allowed to centralise themselves.

Overheating brakes

I think the problem is the brake pad or caliper, brake pad are too thick or the caliper are not good casted.
First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.

How to bleed the brakes

Start at the right rear wheel, while having someone in the driver seat, have them to apply pressure to brake peadle while you open the bleeder valve located at the top of the caliper. After fluid stops coming out of the bleeder valve close valve, and person in the driver seat can release pressure off of brake peadle. perform this till all air is out at each caliper. Right rear first, then left rear, right front, and then left front, be sure to check brake fluid level after each caliper is bleed.

Brake pedal is hard, pulls to driver side

May have a leaking right front caliper thats not applying evenly with the left.Look at the front wheels for excess brake dust.The left wheel should have more dust then the right.Also front left rotor may be pitted causing more friction and excess grabbing on the left.Any brake shop will pull the wheel off and inspect the rotor for free.Dont let them try to sell you two rotors or calipers if only one is bad.Replacing both right and left brake pads is OK

Got answer to my question about air in brakes but how do you bleed the master cylinder?

to bleed the brake line somebody as to pump the brake pedal
3 to 4 times and somebody opens the bleeder on the brake caliper

starting by the right rear wheel, then the left rear wheel, then front right wheel anf finishing with the front left wheel bleeder.

to bleed the master cylinder is the same principle pump pedal 3,4 times
but this time open the line at the master cylinder starting with the rear hoses

hope it is helpful

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.
