Assuming you followed the correct procedure to bleed the brakes and got all the air out then in all likelihood the brake booster or master cylinder is bad.

I change my calipers and break pads on both front wheels of my 97 nissan pathfinder bleed all 4 wheels after a few second I stroke peddle and it went all the way down to the firewall . Need help


Could be your brake master cylinder not building hydraulic pressure. If the internal seals are bad, the fluid leaks back internally, preventing pressure to build up in the lines to the wheels. If you have no leaks and you bled all wheels properly, it is probably the master cylinder.

How to install break pads


Front aren't to bad just remove tire.Caliper holds pads, there are to bolts to be removed they may be allen wrench type from back to front One on the top one on bottom of caliper. After removing and a small amount of wiggling should allow you to tip the caliper back away from rotor and allow you to unsnap pads from caliper. Next you need a large C-clamp you use this to slowly push cylinder back into caliper, The cylinder has to go all the way back in or after you install new pads you wont be able to get them back down over rotor.Once you have pads set in caliper replace caliper over rotor and replace bolts in caliper pads are changed. BUT before taking off with vehical drive back and forth to ensure the brake pads properly set up and that you have brakes before taking off down the road.ONE other thing you may encounter,after removing bolts to take caliper off there are to spacers that slide with bolts as brakes wear.These to spacers have to be pushed into the caliper to allow you to be able to get the calipers properly seated on rotor. These spacers are seated in rubber and sometimes you have to drive them back in, be careful with the brake line so you don't break it while changing brakes it does Not have to be taken off to change the pads.Good luck let me know how it goes.

I have to press hard to brake and light is on


You need to check your breaks then. You may have bad pads or a bad caliper. I would check asap, just in case they might go out. Make sure you have break fluid also. The breaks may need bled. Check that first.

I just got a new used 1995 honda accord and already i'm really unhappy. The gears stick terribly and the breaks... you have to push down really hard and they don't break fast. What can i do about the gears...


the gears are sticking? is the shifter just really tight and hard to move from one gear to the next, or even just wiggle around in neutral? if so, you may need new bushings for it. which are not very expensive. IF the shifter wiggles around easily in neutral, but hangs in a gear when you press the clutch in all the way, you could need a clutch, OR hopefully you can just try bleeding the clutch line. at the master cylinder on the transmission. the breaks.... do you have to push the pedal down really hard, or really soft and far? if you're putting a lot of pressure on the pedal but you don't have to push the brake pedal all the way to the floor, that would indicate to me that your pads and rotors are glazed over. you should replace the rotors, pads and have the calipers checked, and have the brakes bled. if you've got to push the pedal all the way to the floor, there's a good chance all you'll need is to have the brakes bled.

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while when i stop smoke comes from them ive change master cylinder pads and discs but still have the problem...


Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.

Keep getting air in break lines


1. bleed your vehicle while the engine is running. 2. Check ALL your brake lines, connections and wheel brakes cylinders or calipers of any leaks or moisture. 3. If nothing happens, your brake masters or your caliper's pistons may be weak and needs replacement.

2002 camry breaks


take off brake caliper, take off your brake pads. check the sliders. sliders are on the side of the bracket. see if they are moving freely in and out. im pretty sure they are seized. that's why your pedal is soft and sinks down really fast when applied.

Ford Escape Breaks


Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.
