U need need to have a shop bleed these brakes, there is a special tool for the ABS system that holds open the tiny popit valves in the ABS hydraulic control unit and allows air to bleed by. There is no way areound this, the job is not that expensive, any time shop can do it.

I PUT NEW BRAKES. HUBS AND WHEEL CLY. ON MY 94 TEMPO. THE LEFT SIDE BLEEDS BUT THE RIGHT SIDE DONT. WHAT CAN BE WRONG?


Sounds like a leak in the brake line.
In the first place the front disc brakes do 70% of the work to stop the vehicle .
When you need to bleed your brakes you break into the system this lets fluid out air will get in every time so even a pin hole in the line or at a fitting will let air in slowly .The problem is air is compressible fluid is not so look for leaks at rear lines and fittings its vary common for rear lines to rust out and many inexpensive ways to repair them .
An other thing to know is when bleeding brakes is if you didn't open the front lines you don't need to bleed them but with the rears start with the farthest one away from the master cylinder passenger side rear 99% of the time and work back to the master .
I think your whole problem is a rusted out line 94 thats a lot of road salt good luck

What's the procedure of bleeding hydraulic disc brake of a motorcycle


Hi,,best to get a good self bleeding tube, a small jar, and a spanner for the bleed nipple on the brake caliper,and the right brake fluid for your bike,
undo resurver cap,then put the bleed tube on the bleed nipple,put the other end into the jar,then put about a inch of brake fluid into the jar so it covers the end of the tube,then fill the brake resurver up near the top,then open the bleed nipple on the caliper only enougth to let the fluid come out,now pull the brake leaver in slowly,you should now see fluid going down the tube into the jar(if it dosnt open the blead nipple a bit more),if you can see fluid going down the tube into the jar,let brake leaver out slowly,keep repeating the prosedure untill you see all air bubbles gone or if you want to replace all the fluid untill you see the clean fluid coming through,dont forget to keep the fluid in the resurver topped up other wise you will draw air bake into the system and will have to start all over again,if you have two discs on the front do the one firthest away from the resurver first,when you have finnished the bleeding make shore the fluid thats in the resurver is in between the min and max marks,hope this helped a bit.

I have replaced 3 disc brake calipers on my 2001 pt cruiser. after bleeding all 4 brakes 3 times, I started the car and brake pedal goes to floor. is my brake booster shot?


Michael:

You must start bleeding the brakes at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (usually the right rear), then the next farthest from the master cylinder, then the next, then the closest. If your master cylinder is at the left front of the car, start with the right rear, then the left rear, then the right front, then the left front. If you don't bleed the brakes in the correct order, you are just shifting the air in the lines from one line to another. Make sure that you close the bleeder before letting the brake pedal up, and the engine should not be running when you bleed the brakes... Make sure that the emergency brake is off. Make sure that the master cylinder does not run out of brake fluid at any time that you are bleeding the brakes.

Squealing at the right front wheel


The brake lining's have worn away, the squealing was metal to metal (worn pad against metal disc) The worn pad will have damaged the brake disc. Very dangerous. You will now have to have new brake pads and discs fitted to BOTH front wheels to put it right. Good luck

I am changing the front brakes on my 1995 Chev. S-10 (with ABS) When I changed the pads and put the caliper back on, and pumped the pedal to bleed the brakes, it seemed to have locked the brakes. Is...


Unfortunately it takes special equipment to bleed the brakes on a vehicle with ABS brakes. If you can get the car to a shop it's best to have them bleed the air out of the system.

I have a 1995 pontiac grand am just put all new breaks on but cant get any break pressure how do i fix it?


How worn out are those discs(rotors)? Sometimes the discs wear unevenly due to the pad being slightly smaller than the disc. It causes a ridge on the inner and outer area of the disc. Installing a new pad causes it to sit across these ridges and when you press down on the pedal you seem to have no pressure when in fact the pad is bending into the area below it. (See picbelow) Sometimes discs can be skimmed as long as they're still within manufacturers spec when done. I'd recommend replacement.
If you did not open the brake lines with assembly it should not require bleeding.
If you want to bleed the system here's how:
You'll need an assistant for this. First off, Make sure you can open all the bleed screws/nipples(looks like a little metal pipe half inch long, but its base is in the form of a nut). Use a ring spanner or socket to loosen the nipple the first time. Not an open ended spanner since bleed nipples tend to get quite stuck. Once loosened, fasten them again and starting at the wheel furthest from the driver. Have your assitant pump the brake pedal a couple times, and then hold it down. Open the bleed nipple on the caliper. Some brake fluid should come out of the nipple. Close the nipple and then release the pedal. While the bleed nipple is open the pedal must remain pressed down. Releasing the pedal will **** air into the system and you'll have to start over. Pump the pedal again a couple times and repeat the whole procedure until the fluid coming out is clear and without air bubbles. Then move to the next wheel and repeat the process. All the time be sure that there is enough brake fluid in the reservoir in the engine compartment.
ps a small length of pipe connected to the bleed nipple with the other end submerged in a small amount of brake fluid in a clear bottle will allow you to see when there is no longer air coming out with the brakefluid.

I put new brakes and rotors on the front of my Toyota 4Runner and new rear wheel cylinders on and I bled the brakes but there still seems to be air in them. What can be the problem


You are correct there is still air in the system. It is a two man job starting at the right rear and then left then front. Pump brake pedal then hold down while bleeder is opened then closed before pedal let off. Then repeat till no air. Be sure to check master cyl for fluid and keep it filled during process.

No brakes after changing brake caliper & bleeding system


Sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. Make sure all your brake lines are tight. Then bleed again. Bleed the trouble side first, meaning right side, then go to front left, back left then back right, make sure that your brake fluid is also full

Bleeding abs brakes


Try using a pressure bleeder. It will force the air out. Works every time.
