Question about Cars & Trucks
My car was low on brake fluid and the light went on and the brakes would not work so I added brake fluid and they seem to be working now but the pedal still goes a little too far down do i need to bleed the brakes the do stop the car but i'm concerned
Some vehicles have an odd way of bleeding them. My Chysler is one of them. Typically, you start from the wheel furthest from the master cylinder and complete one axle at a time, ending with the front wheel closest the master cylinder. On vehicles where the brake line is a tandem design, this is not the procedure. The brakes are bled diagonally beginning with the rear wheel closest the master cylinder and going diagonally to the front wheel, and then to the other rear wheel and then diagonally to the final front wheel, closest the master cylinder. Failure to follow the correct bleed protocol may leave some air in the lines, leading to a spongey pedal., depending on what type of brake line routing your vehicle has. Check your brake lines for leaks.
