How do i bleed the brakes on my 1984 ford mustang never done it before


same as any nother car. take off mastercylinder cap. get a helper set in the drivers seat. apply pressure to the brake peddle. with a box or tube wrench break the fluid *** on the top of the calliper/back of drum loose. foot pressure on peddle should push it to the floor -hold it on the floor! tighten the *** on the caliper/drum tight-ish. not over tight. then let peddle up off floor. pump till you get resistance/tighteness. hold pressure on peddle, loosen *** again and peddle will go to floor again tighten ***, lift up peddle pump for pressure. repeat untill all air is out of line/ or fluid runs out clear. never let the master cylinder get low on fluid. have plenty on hand. repeat for all 4 tires.

You need to replace the clutch slave.....Ii recently did mine, after the installation it was stuck too.......the way I fix it was I had a friend pumping the clutch by hand while I bleed it under the car, it took about 15-20 minutes before it got hard again.
Good luck!

bleed the furthest brake at first and work your wy up to the closest one which is the drivers front side. You may have air in the line inwhich the bleeding process must be done properly. If you still have no pedal bleed the master cylinder last
You can have a bad master cylinder too
Since you had just purchased this car you have no idea how it was taken care of I see so start from square one as stated above

1989 chevy breaks i have replaced the entire break system on my truck except for properiation valve and i get massave air comming up into master cylnder back bowl have bleed many times but no peddle when...


I am fairly certain you have a bad master cylinder. I had a chevy truck which emptied
the back bowl completely and the cause of this was a failed seal on the rear of the
master cylinder. The fluid was sucked into the engine through the power booster and
burned off while driving. If the back bowl for the rear brakes is empty, then this may
be the cause.

We just replaced all the brake lines on our 2000 Concord. We bled the brakes, but still don't have great brakes. Is there steps we needed to take when we bred the brakes. The brake light is also...


When bleeding a break system have one person pump the breaks around 10 times and hold the pressure to the break peddle while the other person loosens the bleed screw......The peddle will then go to the floor..............Hold to the floor until the bleed screw is tightened again and repeat until no air is in the line............Repeat for all breaks and always check the master cylinder for low fluid level and top up.................Hope this helps you out.

After changing front rotors and brake pads on my 1999 Accord LX, Brake peddle goes to floor despite pumping them maney times. I do not have brakes.


You need to bleed them well..
Open the master cap.. Open the bleed valve on each break and let the fluid run out NOT letting the master empty all the way..
Run a few pints through and tighten everything up and you should be good to go..

Brakes are still spongy after changing the pads, one caliper, and master cylinder. bled front brakes.


I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?
