Pulling


Possibly a under inflated tire or a wheel balance weight got knocked off. A wheel alignment shop could repair this for under $100. If tires are balanced try tire rotation by putting the rear wheels on the front and front wheels on the rear. If it pulls to one side during breaking it could be worn out brakes or a leaking brake caliper. check inside of tire sidewalls for brake fluid streaks in the inner sidewall

If it is near the tire it is brake fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is back by the firewall driver side of engine compartment. Your car uses DOT 4 brake fluid.

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor there is no any brake oil leak i replace the brake master cylinder i bleed the system but still the same what is the correct procedure to bleed brake system...


fill master cylinder, start at right rear. the way I do it is make sure cap is back on master cylinder. pump the brakes a few times then hold them. have another person open the bleeder valve at the tires until brakes go to floor. hold them down until bleeder is retightened but be sure master cylinder is not out of fluid. then go to left rear and do the same procedure, then right front, then left front. check fluid and if air is all out there should be brakes. good-day ! THIS IS HOW I HAVE ALWAYS DONE IT ! heres a little trick of sorts. you can change a master cylinder, and if you bench bleed it first. and no fluid is lost from the master cylinder lines you do not need to bleed the whole system. but make sure cylinder is full of fluid before putting on vehicle and all air is out of master cylinder.

How can i check out the master cylinder ? i have very little petal , only left front is catching.


Your master cylinder in front and rear. Drive your car to an empty lot to a bare spot and push hard on the brakes. Look for brake fluid starting to drip on the ground. Also look on the back side of your tires to look for brake fluid tracking due to a a slow leak.

First, there is NO Pumping of the brake pedal
involved in bleeding brakes

I think your smart enough to know you
need to replace both rear brake hoses,
before you proceed with the bleeding

F150 98ford brakes hanging up just changed rotors pads master cyl calibers still the same


brake hoses can fracture on the inside and work as one way valves and hold pressure.thanks to all the dedicated pros who hang calipers by the hoses.
the brake lines and fluid needs to be completely flushed and bled properly,or what happens is water in the system expanding and causing pressure build up.
make sure your brake pedal is retracting all the way up.
i have seen it where ever so slight pressure caused the brakes to drag.
