I would recommend that you make sure the bleeder nuts on these wheels are clear,then I would make sure your brake fluid is full and open both bleeder nuts and let the system gravity bleed until you get fluid to those wheels and then you should be able to bleed normally

Where do you put brake fluid in?


You should never add brake fluid to a vehicle unless there is a leak. If the fluid level is down the brakes are worn. Adding fluid will only overfill the system and will pour out when the brakes are replaced. The fluid goes into the mastercylinder attached to the brake booster on the drivers side under the hood. The master cylinder will have 2-4 steel brake lines going into it

I bought a low-mileage 93 Ford Tempo GL which (surprise surprise) didn't pass safety. The rear brakes aren't functioning properly and the mechanic told me I need new brakes, new bearings, and possibly new...


Indeed the brake fluid for the rear comes from the main reservoir. However, many cars (the tempo included I'm sure) actuate the rear brake by a mechanical linkage to the E-brake lever. So, simply put when you pull the lever the cylinder will never extend. You have to push the brake pedal for that.

When it comes to your safety test, I think you could get by just by taking up the slack in the E-brake cable. This should be accessible by taking apart the center console right behind the E-brake lever.

When trying to bleed the brakes on a 1998 ford windstar, i get pressure on the passenger front and driver rear, but not on the passenger rear or the driver front. Why?


Sounds like the safety valve is not centered in its fixture. What happens is the system has diagonal braking control which is used to prevent the complete loss of brake fluid. This shuts off the wheel that is losing pressure from complete fluid pressure loss One front wheel and one diagonally opposed rear wheel are used so that the car will not pull left or right when stopping.

The situation may clear if you attempt to bleed the brakes using the longest line first and progress to the shortest line last.

Rear passenger brake dosen't work


Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

I have a 93 Ford Tempo with a 4cyl. 2.3 L engine. It jerks when driving and resists reverse. Just put two qts of transmission fluid in it. Could it be the brakes?


More likely a failed transmission, if it was that low and has been run extensively. When you pulled the dipstick for the transaxle, was the fluid a dirty brown? That could be overheated fluid, a pretty sure sign of imminent failure.
To check the brakes, raise each wheel and check. Spin the rear wheels by hand, have someone step on the brakes and release. Does wheel spin again freely? Check the front wheels the same way: turn wheel by hand, should stop when brake is pressed, and turn again when brake is released.
Auto transmission rebuilds are quite expensive, and used ones are iffy at best. Try to find a used one with low mileage if you have to go that route.

Brake light coming off and on


Check the fluid level. Low brake fluid level can cause the brake light to come on warning you of low fluid. It will be off when the car is level, but as you hit bumps and hit your brakes, the fluid that is in there will slosh around indicatind low fluid. Don't overfill and only use DoT 3 brake fluid. Do not substitute anything else.

YOU NEED TO SIPHON JUST A LITTLE BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE MASTERCYLINDER.BECAUSE YOU NEED TO USE LARGE C - CLAMP TO COMPRESS FORCE PISTONS BACK IN THE CALIPER BORES USING LARGE C - CLAMP DOING THIS WILL ALLOW YOU ENOUGH ROOM INSTALL NEW REAR BRAKE PADS.TO REMOVE REAR PADS ONCE YOU COMPRESS PISTON BACK IN THE CYLINDER BORE.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?


first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run dry.next prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the modulator.place the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is submerged.open the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.
