Well I do not know about the brake line part. a brake line being out of fluid in the rear would nor prevent the car from stopping becasue all newer cars after 1775 have to master clyinders in them one to operate the front brakes and the other to operate the back, that way if one runs out of fluid you will still have half your brakes and they will stop you send a picture and e-mail me what stae you live in and I wil tell you how much it would cost to fix. you can e-mail me at b123153h@yahoo.com

1991 buick park avenue brake problem had busted brake line on drivers side rear brake so i fixed it then bleed the brakes.aint getting no brake fluid comming out of the passenger side rear so took of the...


Hi Chris, The brake system is basically very simple. If you have duel braking on your vehicle, the usual method is having two brakes operate on the front with for example the left rear and the other system will also operate two front and the right rear. This type of system will have two calipers on each of the front wheels. The tandem system works in a slightly different way, having the forward part of the cylinder pressurizing the rear brakes and the rear part of the cylinder pressurizing the front. I think under the circumstances you are describing, I would have a friend sit inside and pump the brakes repeatedly until the system becomes pressurized (maybe twenty thirty times of pumping the brake pedal) and then ask him or her to keep it pushed firmly down until you find out where its leaking. The amount of brake fluid you report having been sed would indecate a severe leakage. Check the lower parts of the rear wheels for signs of leaking wheel cylinders and then dito for the front wheels. Any signs of wetness at these areas and along the brake system (the plumbing or pipe work) will indicate where the leakage is. If you cannot identify a wheel which is leaking, carefully inspect around and blow the master cylinder and if this no sign go along the fluid lines, taking special note of where the damaged pipe was repaired. If there is a blockage in the line, air may be trapped at that point causing difficulty in pressurizing. Once the place of leakage has been identified it must be attended to before bleeding the system. When bleeding, begin with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder, and work your way back to the master cylinder one wheel at a time, until you reach the closest.Keep in mind that you may find it required to pump the pedal many many times before opening the bleed nipple.Regards John

Brakes are going to the floor most of the way checked rear brakes and they are still good bleed them and problem still there


Normally when the brake pedal goes almos to the floor it is an indication of low brake fluid. Low brake fluid is an indication that front and/or rear brakes are wearing. As the brake pads wear down more brake fluid will be required in the wheel cylinders or calipers. Hint, the front brakes usually wear much faster than the rear due to the fact that the fronts due a much greater braking function that the rear. Check the front pads. Don't let them get down to the metal scraping metal stage before you change them out. This causes unnessary damage to the rotors. Look at your master cylinder on the firewall under the hood in front of the steering wheel. If the fluid level is belowhte "max" mark add fluid. Low fliud should also show as a red "brake" light on your dash, but not always.

How do you blead the abs pump on a 1996 ford explorer


without a bleeder pump it is hard to do but you can do it by disconnecting the lines one at a time on the side going to the wheels, start the car have someone press on the brake and crack the line open do this till the air is out of the first line then go to next line and do all four lines, once you have done this then you will have to bleed the wheel cylinders starting from right rear or passenger side rear wheel the driver side wheel then passenger front side then driver side front, you will need engine running to power bleed the system, just stepping on the brake pedal without it running won't work, be sure not to let it run out of fluid as your bleeding the system or you could damage the abs system or the brake master cylinder.

Replaced master cylinder 3 times air in brake line after a few weeks only front right brake


I am not sure what secquence you used when bleeding the air from the lines. But just to give you a little help if your not sure. Start at the back left, rear passenger side, next= rear right,rear drivers side, then passenger side front, and lastly drivers side front. Also ckeck and make sure all fittings are tight before moving on to the next.

Dash lights and tail lights not working after accident!


If it is just the dash and the tail lights then the small light fuse under the hood right side must be blowing.  There must be a short somewhere.  I had this problem recently.  you need to look for the short in some odd places.  there is a known defect in the sunvisors that can pinch wires and short this fuse.  In my case the car stereo had a stray wire that was the problem. I think its the #15 fuse under the hood

My brake light comes on and fluid spray out from underneath on passenger side


This sounds like a leaking caliper or brake line. More like a hole in the brake line if it's spraying out -- this is often caused by a brake line rubbing against the chassis. Needs a thorough visual inspection to determine where the brake fluid is originating.
