Bleed one more time. occasionally when bleeding an air bubble will move in the line and you need to crack each bleeder three times while helper holds foot down on pedal.

If you haven't refilled the resovoir for the brake fluid and it's running out again you have a leak in hte brake line somewhere. Even if you replaced the brake lines you might still have a leak somewhere. It just takes time to find it

Thanks Terry

I have a 2003 montero sport and the breaks are not bleeding right. I have blead them until the fluid is clear and the breaks are still spongy going to the floor board. Any thoughts?

test your master cylinder and calipers and wheel cylinders. raise one or 2 wheels or 4 if you got the equipement, turn the wheels by hand and have an assistant apply the brakes to see which one/ones are defective. when your brake fluid changes color because of contamination, the first contaminent is rubber from the brake system

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

I changed the break pad, blead the breaks, and the pedal stil goes to the floor and break system light goes off.

check your master cylinder and booster see if you see a fluid leak if not then take cap off resivior and open bleeder valves just enough to let them bleed out on all four wheels KEEP THE RESIVOIR FULL OF BRAKE FLUID while your doing this .. this procedure should take about 45 min

Spongy breaks

The reason for spongy breaks is because there is an air pcket tuck somewhere in the system. you will need to blead all the lines. start from the passengers rear thank go to the drivers rear than the passangers front than the drivers front. You need to kep fluid in the resivour while doing this. and you will need to look for a steady stream of brake fluid before closing the bleader valve or yo will not get the air pcket out of the line.
