Get someone to stamp on the pedal when your opening the bleeder and close it before he/she hits the floor with there foot.may take several attempts.

DEPENDS WHAT PROCEDURE YOU USE TO REPLACE THEM.IF YOU PUSHED THE CALIPER PISTONS IN WITHOUT OPENING THE BLEEDER AND USING A **** CLOSED THE BRAKE HOSES YOU MANAGED TO SENT BACKWARDS THE FLUID INTO THE MASTER CYLINDER WHERE IS THE POSSIBILITY TO CAUSE THE SEALS ROLLING IN AND ARE NOT HOLDING PRESSURE. THE OTHER REASON IS EITHER YOU NEED TIME UNTIL THE BRAKES BED ON THE DISCS SURFACES.

I have a 1992 izuzu rodeo LS 4x4 v6 and my brakes are having a hard time stopping i have replased the master cylinder the brake pads the rotors iv bled them but it still has a hard time stopping and it...


Check the caliper sliders, they may be seized causing limited brake pad contact. Also check the calipers for siezed pistons.
After bleeding the system, sometimes the proportioning valve will have to be reset manually. You can do this by having an assistant press the brake pedal and open a bleeder screw slightly on one side [ front or rear ] of the system, it may reset. If not, try doing the other side of the system.
If the brake pedal seems to be pushing back against you then either the Brake Booster isn't getting proper vacumn, or is faulty.
If the vehicle has drum rear brakes, make sure they are adjusted properly. If they are set too loose the pedal will feel spongy and low.
Hope this helps.

that is how you contract the caliper on the Audi/VW rear brakes. I would check the brake fluid, I would also recheck the back brake lines as it is/was a bear to replace the rear brake pads. Hope this helped Tim

you need a new master cyclinder..you needed to open the brake line before you forced the caliper back in ,,,otherwise you force the fliud the wrong way though the master cylinder and ruin the internals

Spongy brake pedal on 2003 Frod escort zx2.


loosen of the hand-brake adjustment and press the brake pedal a few times to self adjust the rear brakes.
Re-tighten the handbrake adj last.
Front brake sounds like a seized caliper,If possible remove caliper and clean and lubricate the piston.
This may work but replacement caliper may be the only other solution.Make sure the caliper slides are also clean and lubricated and the brake pads are in good order.(TRY THIS FIRST)
Also new brake shoes can make the pedal feel spongy for a couple of hundred miles until they have been run in.

Try checking the caliper on the side that's wearing down faster. Make sure the caliper seal where the cup is does not have any damage. But it might be due to the fact that you only bled 3 out of 4 lines. Good Luck And PEACE
