Bleed the complete system starting with the rear passenger caliper if you don't have a bleed box get someone to help you and have them pump the brakes three to five times and hold it down then open the little 3/8 bleeder located on the inner side of the caliper the brake pedal will go to the floor but make sure they do not release the pedal until you close the bleeder back up then repeat until there is no air in the lines then move to the rear driver side repeat steps above then front passenger side then front driver side. hope this helps Jeff J&D services

How to bleed front breaks

Have somebody pump up the brake pedal several times then hold the pedal firmly..If your doing the front only ,,then while the person is holding the brake pedal,,open the bleeder screw on the passenger side...The pedal should go down all the way to the floor..Tell whoevers holding the brake pedal to continue holding until you tighten the bleeder screw...Repeat process about 3 times,,,then do the other side...MAKE SURE you check the fluid level at least every 2 times you bleed it,,so the level wont go to low...The bleeder screw should be next to the brake line..

Put front brakes on hj kingswood bleed brake line .now brake peddle wont work

you need to bleed the brakes,starting from the wheel that's the fartherest away from your master cylinder. if you opened a bleeder valve when you replaced the front brakes,you've let air into the whole brake will need 2 people to bleed the air out of the brakes.1to pump the pedal up for pressure and you to release the pressure of air from the bleeder valves on each wheel.start from the wheel that's the fartherest away from the brake master cylinder. passenger rear wheel.have someone pump the brake pedal up [pump3times]and hold pressure on the brake pedal,you open bleeder valve on the wheel to let the air out,or until the brake pedal goes to the floorboard[never let the person who is pumping the brake pedal to take the pressure off the brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder valve closed.or else,you're waisting your time. you may have to bleed each wheel twice,or until you see clear brake fluid come out with no bubbles or spurting from each wheel. after you're done with passenger rear wheel,move to driverside rear wheel,then go to passenger front,then drivers front,which is last.when you replaced the brakes,you made a common mistake,you opened the brake lines,which let air into the brake's a very common mistake so don't feel bad.just go back and bleed the brake system.after you do this,you will not make the same mistake again,i guarantee it. thank you for choosing and if you need further assistance,please repost your question to i'm usually here at least 12 hours a day to assist people for free.that's just me thanks!

I have a 97 jetta and when i try and bleed my brakes i start on the passenger side bleeder valve. and when i start bleeding the brakes i have pressure and the pedal goes to the floor but when i bleed the...

When bleeding you start at the rt rear to left rear to rt front to left front always checking to make sure master stays with fluid, also start by removing one bleeder at a time and make sure the hole is clean and free of dirt brake clean should flow through, do this to all 4, then have someone pump pedal 3 times and hold then open bleeder when you close bleeder tell them pump again three times, do this all around until you have a good pedal, also check for leaks after bleeding, may have bad rusted line or bad master but bleed each wheel good first.dont worry about pedal going to floor everytime, just make sure fluid flows out of all bleeders when bleeding. hope this helps.

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running

Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.

I replaced the master cylinder on my car e now i

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

If you had a brake job you might have air in the system that needs bleed out.
Crack open the bleeder on the caliper and watch the brake fuild come out steadly and close it and don't pump the pedal. Do this to each side this is called bench bleeding and watch the brake fulid level while you are doing this add fuild as you bleed each side.

Also sounds like a leaking line check under the car for a leaking brake line. Next would be a master cylinder problem. But more than likely a brake line might be rusted up and leaking, sooner or later you will not be able to stop. If its a leaking line it will leak all the fuild out of the master cylinder. You can replace the line and use the bleeding procedure in step one.
