If it has good pedal and just won't stop you probably are not getting any help from your power booster. Check for the vaccum hookup at the motor and on the front of the power booster behind the master cyclinder.

SOURCE: can't find where/how to bleed back brakes 2000 dodge grand caravan

The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.

SOURCE: having trouble bleeding brakes on my ford f150 4x4

1 Siphon off the old brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir under the hood.
2 Fill the reservoir with new brake fluid (don't reuse old fluid as it holds moisture and will corrode your brake system).

3 Start with the brake farthest from the Master cylinder, usually rear wheel, passenger side. Pull off the rubber cover on the bleeder valve. Attach the aquarium air line to the nipple on the bleeder.

4 Have your assistant pump the brake pedal up and down 3-4 times, then hold the pedal down fairly hard.
5 Open the bleeder, let fluid flow out through the air line into a waste container. (preferrably a clear bottle so you can see any air bubbles escaping the system). When the fluid stops and your assistant's foot hits the firewall (brake pedal all the way down), close the bleeder valve immediately!
6 Go to step #4 above and drain more fluid out of the bleeder valve until clean fluid comes out. Check the master cylinder every time and top it up as necessary. This procedure uses lots of fluid.

7 Now move to the rear brake on the driver's side. Go to step #4 and repeat the same procedures above until clean fluid comes out of the bleeder valve and no bubbles.
8 Next is the front brake, passenger side, same procedure. Then the drivers side and the same procedure.
9 When finished check for any leaks, remount rubber covers on the bleeder valve nipples. Remount all wheels, re-torque lug nuts after 50-100 miles of driving.
10 Start vehicle and depress the brake pedal. It should feel much less spongy than before this procedure. If not, there is air in the system, start over. Bleed everything again.
Note: if you assistant releases the brake pedal before you can close the bleeder valve then air will be introduced into the brake lines. This is no good! Before you start tell your assistant you will tell him/her PUMP, HOLD DOWN, RELEASE commands.

That's it, you're done. Congratulate yourself on saving some cash instead of handing it over to a mechanic.

SOURCE: brake bleeding

if you didn't bleed the lines after putting the master in. then there is a good chance there is air in the lines now. may go through a quart of brake fluid before all the air is out. remember to start at r-rear/ l-rear/ r-front/ l-front last.will take some time. don't forget to adjust the rear brake while your there to help with the pedal

If the system is empty and you have pulled a vac, it holds around 2 lbs which is 2.5 cans. The high and low gauge pressures tell you when it is full.

Put in a new master cylinder and the brake booster and bleed the brakes..... brake still not catching... goes almost to the floor.... What next? (2006 dodge grand caravan)


have you replaced the front and rear brake pads (for older vehicles, rear wheels use brake shoes instead of brake pads). if yes, check your calipers. completely remove it from your tire and have it cleaned.
if the problem still persists, then its time to replace your hydrovac

What fuse needs replaced for the break lights on a suzuki grand vitara 2006?


Obviously, in different markets, there will be different wiring set-ups. In Australia, both the brake lights and horn work when the ignition is off and they share a fuse. If your horn doesn't work, maybe your brake lights don't either.
