I changed front calipers on a 2001 cavalier and now cant get them to bleed no pressure

The master brake cylinder may be bad. Also the flex tubes that connect the front calipers may have collapesed inside and need replacing. Does fluid squirt out with one disconnected?

Rear brake locks up at slow speeds on 2001 cavalier

i would have the rear brake limiter mechanism checked first as this device regulates brake pressure so it is equal to both back wheels, if this is ok i'd check that the wheel cylinders aren't sticking and that the brake shoe assembly has been replaced properly

2001 Cavalier passenger rear brake locks up at slow speeds, shakes at higher speeds, mechanics changed drums 3 times, keeps coming back

I think it is time to find an accredited brake specialist . At the best with a hub it may be bad wheel bearings but I consider it a problem with the mechanics and their lack of commitment to fixing your problem

1999 chev. cavalier

should just be a bad brake switch on the pedal (or could just need adjusted but probably not). remove switch and see if continuity from one terminal to the other changes from open to closed when you depress the plunger on the switch manually (a general multimeter that measures ohms can do this)

I have a 2001 cavalier and the rear brakes keep locking up. we've replaced the master cylinder, proportioning valve, pads, rotors, hardware, shoes, drums, and right front hub bearing. got any ideas on...

Was this problem there before you changed the Brake shoes. The cavalier has shoes on the rear.
It seems like the leaning show the SHORT one is not facing the front of the car where it should be. If you check the shoes one is shorter than the other in a set. Hope this works. Some model year Cavalier also had a problem with the Backing plate the plate the shoes attaches to.
