Ok sometimes a cylinder can be turned try this open bleeder cap on front left side then slam on the brake pedal as hard and fast as you can this will sometimes turn it back the right way. if brake fuild comes fling out it worked. when you bleed then use a hose to go on the end of the cap and the other end in a bottle of brake fuild so it cant get air back in the line. good luck

What makes brakes apply by themselves on a 97 chev. geo prizm

it's bad brakes, and is no longer road worthy.!
1 wheel or all 4?
all 4, will be caused by someone setting up the brake pedal
linkage to the rear of the master cylinder, with no free play.

this folly collapses the MC piston ,blocking the drain back ports
and the brakes lock. A travesty waiting to happen
GOT ABS brakes?

Clutch slips on 96 geo prizm.

usually a slipping clutch is a bad clutch
the acid test is to remove the slave
point car in safe direction ,
start car in gear, does it slip now?
yes, then the clutch is bad.
you do this test off road safely..
it can only be 2 things, think about it.
1: bad clutch 99%
2; a seized ,while extended slave.

My brake lite came on..i changed rear pads and cylinders...bled lines ten times.. still have barely any leaks tho..why cant i get a fulll pedal...

What about the front pads/calipers...also check the master cylinder..the master cylinder is the unit that the brake pedal connects to and it can have bad seals inside where the fluid is blowing by the seals and not building pressure

I have a 96 geo prizm. I have replaced the front and back brakes. I have bled the brakes and the foot pedal is firm for about the first4 days. After the 4 days the brake pedal gets really soft and you...

It sounds like master cyl. is drawing in air causing prob. also another test would bee too bleed out and get pedal back, now step on pedal and hold firmly and see if pedal creeps near floor indicating innternal leaking in master cyl. also have some one pump bakes slowly aand look for air bubbles in brake res. after bleed out indicating master cyl. is drawing air upon release of pedal.
