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 (:^)

Where is the bleeder for the rear brakes on a 2000 zx2


If they are drum brakes the bleeder will be on the backside of the backing plate tight above where the line enters the wheel cylinder. if the bleeder is broken the best advice is to replace the wheel cylinder.

Front and rear drum brakes, the pads are ok, but the brake pedal started going to the floor. When I tried to bleed them, the rear bleeder screws broke. So I replaced both wheel cylinders. The rubber...


OK........as you have stated that you have bled the brakes properly.....was there fluid coming out each bleed nipple as a flowing stream...????

And did you shut off the bleed nipple half way down stroke....?????

If this is all ok, then I would be looking at a failed master cylinder.......and what is occurring is the fluid is leaking from the primary to the secondary within the master cylinder !!!!!

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums


start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Where are the rear brake bleeder screws on a 1994 Ford Explorer


bleeders are always on the slave cylinders. If you have drum brakes, they will be just above where the brake line attaches. If you have disk brakes, they will be near the top of the caliper.

The brake cylinder in the rear drum of a 93 ford ranger broke, how do i replace it


Remove wheel, brake drum, and brake shoes. The cylinder is the part the brake line goes into and it spreads the brake shoes apart when you brake.

Loosen the brake line but do not take off, unbolt the cylinder and then disconnect brake line. loosely connect the brake line to the new cylinder so you do not loose much brake fluid, bolt new cylinder in and then tighten the brake line.
Reinstall shoes. There should be a bleeding screw/grease head in the brake cylinder, loosen this and have someone step on the brake to bleed the line, have them hold the brake while you tighten the bleed screw. Do this as many times as necessary until brake fluid only with no air comes out.
Reinstall drum and tire, top off brake fluid.

Tried to bleed brakes by loosening the brake lines because the bleeder screws were broke off. it doesn't seem to be bleeding them good> what to do?


Only two options...remove the wheel cylinder asd carefully drill out the bleeder screw without damaging the threads or seat, or...replace the wheel cylinder (they aren't all that expensive). Since the line enters the cylinder lower that the bleeder, it is impossible to get the air out of there unless you turn the car upside down!!! No...don't try that!!!

Try using a pressure bleeder. It will force the air out. Works every time.
