You ever drive a car that one tire in the back would drag when almost stoped?

This could be your problem, but the ABS is kicking in for the one tire,
Did you put new pads on when to did the caliper?

other Ideas..

The caliper blow out or repacement damaged one of the tire speed sensor.

When it blow out brake fluid got used up and you sucked up air in the master cylinder and ABS unit

new doesnt mean cant be defective --also air can still be in line or caliper you can try bleeding again -most replacement brake caliper are reconditioned so you can have a defect in it but bled the brakes again and observe the brakes after if still sluggish or piston not moving than replace caliper

2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

Brakes on a Lincoln mark viii coupe 1995 fitted new M/cylinder L/front and R/rear wont bleed is somthing wrong in the abs and how much for a new unit


All four brakes must be bled to eliminate the trapped air...probably not anything else...try lubricating the bleeder fitting with PB Blaster before trying to open...be cautious as this valve can break off, and that means rebuild the caliper drill out broken fitting...or replace caliper...either way all 4 brakes must be bled...start with the rear farthest away from the master cylinder then other rear...then right front, then last is left front...Hope this helps.

I have to push very hard on the brakes to come to coplete stop. The master cylinder is fine and the brakes have been bled at the calipers. I have heard There is another place to bleed the brakes. Where...


CHECK POWER BRAKE BOOSTER.WITH ENGINE OFF.DEPRESS BRAKE PEDAL SHOULD BE FIRM.NOW START THE ENGINE BRAKE PEDAL SHOULD DROP A LITTLE AND HOLD IF BRAKE GOES TO THE FLOOR POWER BOOSTER COULD BE BAD.I STILL SAY YOU HAVE AIR IN BRAKE SYSTEM.YOU NEED TO BENCH BLEED BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER AND BLEED FRONT CALIPERS AND REAR BRAKE CALIPERS. BY YOUR CAR BEING ABS BRAKES SYSTEM BEST TO LET DEALERSHIP FIX BRAKES. THEY HAVE TO USE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO RESET ABS BRAKE HYDRALIC CONTROL UNIT AND PRESSURE BLEED THE BRAKE SYSTEM. IF BLOWER MOTOR KEEP RUNNING YOU HAVE FAULTY BLOWER MOTOR RELAY.IF BLOWER MOTOR HAS ONE SPEED CONTROL.YOUR BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR BAD OR AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH IS BAD.

(4x4)I replaced all the steel brake lines from the junktion block on the frame by gas tank forward.Bled,Bled and Bled,when comming to a slow stop, pedel gets hard' there's a ratchiting sound (ABS Pump?)and...


The problem here is air in the ABS system, you must get the ABS hydraulic control unit bled, this can't be done with a special tool that holds open the poppet valves to each wheel so the air can be completely bled out. You must have the brakes bled at a shop OR the dealer that has this tool or its equivalent. There is no way around using the bleeding tool on this ABS system. I get this question over and over on FixYa.

Brake pedal goes too far to the floor on initial application, pumping brings the pedal up, bled several times


Sounds like an internal leak in the master cylinder, an external brake fluid leak (such as a leaking brake line), or extreme misadjustment or binding of the calipers or drums. Any could be the case, and you can eliminate the last 2 rather easily. Do you see any sign of fluid coming from any of the brake lines? If not, move to adjustments. Check the calipers for bound up caliper pins and if equiped with rear drum brakes, the adjustment and condition of the rear shoes. After that, go right for the throat and replace the master cylinder. Be sure to bench bleed it before you install it, and if you have ABS, make sure you also bleed the ABS system, OR if you can't bleed the ABS system have the new master cylinder ready to install, and remove the brake lines as quickly as possible from the old master and have a friend hold thier fingers over the ends of the lines. I do this quite a bit at my shop, and it's VERY rare that I actualy need to bleed the ABS after replacing a master cylinder if little to no air gets in the brake lines.

I have no brake pressure. The rear calipers and master cylinder are new. There are no apparent leaks in the lines, and yet there is still no pressure in the brake system. The pedal just sinks to the floor....


the reson u get no pressure is that you need the special tool to bleed the ABS control hydraulic valve, u will need to have the dealer do this, air is trapped in the ABS control and until you bleed it correctly with the tool you will have no brake pressure.
