You need to have someone to help you as they will need to pump the brake while you release the pressure at the wheels, have the helper pump the brake pedal and then hold it while you bleed the air off. To begin be sure the master cyl. is full and check it often as you do the bleeding. Start at the right rear wheel and then the left rear and then do the same in the front. Be sure the helper does not remove there foot from the brake pedal until you have the bleeder shut or else you will draw air back into the sys.

Hi, you probably have air in the hydraulic line. Check the clutch hydraulic reservoir (next to the brake reservoir)--is it empty? If yes, refill and look for a leak. Repair the leak and bleed the system to restore pedal pressure. If you need instruction for replacing components or bleeding, please let me know.

I bled the brakes on a 1998 ford escort zx2 but still cant get a full peddle


A bad master cylinder can cause this as well and improper bleeding. A leaking wheel cylinder or a bad rubber brake hose can cause this as well. Are you using a vacuum bleeder?

Spongy brake pedal on 2003 Frod escort zx2.


loosen of the hand-brake adjustment and press the brake pedal a few times to self adjust the rear brakes.
Re-tighten the handbrake adj last.
Front brake sounds like a seized caliper,If possible remove caliper and clean and lubricate the piston.
This may work but replacement caliper may be the only other solution.Make sure the caliper slides are also clean and lubricated and the brake pads are in good order.(TRY THIS FIRST)
Also new brake shoes can make the pedal feel spongy for a couple of hundred miles until they have been run in.

2003 ford escort zx2 brake lights stuck on


there is a switch attached to the upper portion of the brake pedal, fittingly enough called the brake pedal switch. the plastic probably came from that. aside from contorting your body to get to the switch, it is relatively easy fix.

How do you bleed the brakes on a 98 ford escort zx2?


There is NO 1 particular screw.. Theres 4.. One on each wheel cylinder on the rear.. and one on each caliper on the front.. If ya dont know this.. then ya probably need to let a shop do it.. Ya have to start at the fartherest point away from the master cylinder. and work from farther.. to closer.. Its not easy if ya never done it..
