When bleeding brakes always use a hose (windsheild wiper hose works great) put one end of the hose on the bleeder cap and the other end in a bottle of brake fuild so no air get's back into the line.

Sequence for bleeding brakes on 2005 jeep liberty with abs


Not 100% sure if this would pertain to your vehicle, as I'm currently not at work, but some vehicles require bleeding sequence of front left, right rear, right front then left rear.

Possible you have air in the brake system. Check to see if the rear wheel cylinders are leaking. Try bleeding the rear brakes to see if there is air in the lines. Check to make sure you don't have any leaks in the system.

I bought a 1999 oldsmobile silhouette replaced brake pads and bled brake system . the brakes are still spongie abs light still comes on once in awhile..


If the brakes are spongy you will have to bleed the brakes again. It sounds like there is still air in them.
If you are doing it manualy make sure that the pedal is held down until the bleed screw is tight.
There is a brake bleeding kit that can be bought, this makes the job a lot easier.

Bleeding brakes by my self?


can't do it by self unless you by a vacuum bleeder or gravity bleed

however, if you have ABS you may find yourself with a spongy pedal after either because you need a scan tool to bleed the ABS system

Spongy brake pedal


could be the master but NOT the booster
the booster increases pedal effort and when it goes you have a HARD pedal

...go to your parts store and ask for a brake booster bleeder kit and bench bleed the master on the car...if the pedal is still spongy then YES its the master

However, more often than not, a vehicle with ABS this year, that had the pistons pushed in during service suffer from ab HSU failure'

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.


Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?


first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run dry.next prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the modulator.place the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is submerged.open the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

Spongy brakes


Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

Brakes feel spongy.when pressed hard goes nearly to floor.if pedal released slightly and pressed again feels normal.this is a 1997 toyota caldina GGT with abs.have bled brakes and sgimmed discs.any ideas?


Either you did not bleed the brakes properly or they need adjusted. (rear only) Front most likely are disks. If you put pads on the front and spread the caliper pistons, you should pump the brake pedal 10 or 15 times to move the pistons out. Some ABS systems are notoriously hard to bleed.
