The front brake pads burnt and after replacing pads and calipers during bleeding the back lines have no problems. the front lines wont even push much air, and no sign of fluid, what should i do now?


Have you left the cap off the brake reservoir whilst bleeding procedure.if the cap is on between bleeding it won't allow fluid to flow out of bleed nipple.if it is still blocked then it sounds like the lines / pipes have debris in them so need flushing through or replacing.

Brake pedal soft after changing pads and bleeding brakes


You will need to bleed the brake system. I would start with the rear brakes lines and work towards the front.You must have key off engine off when bleeding brakes, apply pressure on brake pedal 10 times and hold. The brake line is now ready to be open. Open and let the stream of fluid come out and close the line tight. Then release brake pedal once bleeder screw is close. This procedure must be repeated twice front and back. After, brakes have been bleed pump the brake pedal before putting in drive.
Note: Don't let the resevoir run low on brake fluid. This will cause air bubbles to accumulate on the brake system. Always top off before opening bleeder screw.

The problem is not the booster, the job of the booster is to make braking easier. If the booster went out the brakes would be hard to press.
Your soft pedal is likely due to air in the brake lines. Bleed the brakes and go from there.

2003 rav 4, just replaced front calipers and pads, after bleeding the line,peddle was spongie, bled all four lines, peddle still spongie, do I need the engine running to properly bleed the lines, and since...


I would bleed the rears too especially if the brake fluid reservoir drained empty. Also you may need to drive the vehicle to seat the brake pads. Check and see how the pedal feels initially before you road test to make sure you don't need to pump the brakes in order to stop. if you do then re bleed all four wheels.If you don't have to pump the pedal and it just feels spongy then try going around the block a few times and see if the pedal stiffens up after the pads have seated.

After changing pads and roto's on the front the brake petal goes to the floor and won't recover pressure? I didn't loosen brake lines or bleeders


You obviously got air in your lines while you were changing the pads. The brakes now need bleeding. Once you bleed them, your pedal will come firm again. But the good news is that you will only have to bleed the front brakes....Please don't forget to rate this answer for me...

My brakes pedal goes all the way to the floor i have replace the front to brake lines i have no brakes what so ever but my pads are good.


Did you bleed the lines and master cyl. If you are talking about the flex lines that connect to the caliper, did you make sure that the fluid did not
drain out.

If the master cyl did not empty you will just have to bleed the lines again,
have someone help do do this. If you don't know how, just post it
and someone will get you a nice detailed page of bleeding your lines.

I just replaced both front rotors and pads, along with the driver side caliper. My next step is to now bleed the brakes. my question is do i need to bleed all 4 brakes or just the 1 that was replaced?


you don't need to bleed front brakes if you only did rotors and pads. If you look at the master cylindar, there are 4 lines coming off of it, one for each brake. Only bleed what you replaced.
