Bad calipers or master cylinder can pull in air EVERY time you release the pedal if the cups are bad.
OR adjustment can be loose at the drum or disc. Make sure when you bleed it that you keep the master cyl. reservoir topped up so it doesn't get low enough to pull air also. don-ohio .

I don't see the brake bleeder nut on the rear of my 2001 Ford Taurus LX. Are they bleed from the front only?


Probably is broken off. In drum brakes cylinders,you can just bleed the brake cup by tilting it outward at the top,allowing bubbles to leave.
Disc brakes can't be done that way. You might loosen the brake line and see if bubbles will leave. It will be messy. don-ohio (:^)

When trying to bleed the brakes on a 1998 ford windstar, i get pressure on the passenger front and driver rear, but not on the passenger rear or the driver front. Why?


Sounds like the safety valve is not centered in its fixture. What happens is the system has diagonal braking control which is used to prevent the complete loss of brake fluid. This shuts off the wheel that is losing pressure from complete fluid pressure loss One front wheel and one diagonally opposed rear wheel are used so that the car will not pull left or right when stopping.

The situation may clear if you attempt to bleed the brakes using the longest line first and progress to the shortest line last.

was the wheel cyl leaking? make sure there are no other leaks anywhere i see rusted out line on these a lot check down left side of undercarage fuel lines and brake lines run along there .if you have abs you should only have to bleed rears the front are on different valves no air can get in from a rear leak.If no leaks anywhere master cyl most likely

1997 GMC safari van brakes do not operate correctly when pushed. They did not stop the van until the brake pedal was pushed numerous times.


AT FIRST GLANCE I WOULD BE LOOKING @ BRAKE FLUID CHECK LEVAL AND REAR WHEEL CYLNDERS MAY BE LEAKING, OR MASTER CYLNDER BYPASSING

No petal after bleeding breaks


check fluids under hood and make sure the master cylinder isn't also if you bleed your breaks a good rule of thumb is to do all 4 with 2 people one in car and other bleeding and always start with the passenger rear tire then drivers rear and then passenger front and last drivers front and keep master cylinder full between bleeds

Is there any particular pattern to bleed the brakes on a 96 sebring lx?


Always start with the corner farthest from the master cylinder and work your way closer. Typically this is passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front.

Bleed the brake lines


start at the passenger rear tire, have someone PUMP up brakes and hold pressure on them, release pressure by locating small bleeder screw, loosen screw 1/4 turn, brake fluid/air should come out, after brake petal reaches floor tighten bleeder, repeat process until only brake fluid comes out. go to driver side rear repeat, go to pass. side front repeat, go to driver side front repeat, after each bleeding make sure you check brake fluid in reservoir.
