SOURCE: i have a 2000 chevy blazer. had to short fix left

do not drive the vehicle. remove the hoze. replace it with steel line. rubber hoses are not meant for the high pressures of brake lines. it is expanding when you press the brake pedal. very unsafe.

SOURCE: rear brakes over heating

u have a defective ABS hydraulic control valve, this is an active control system and it can apply pressure regardless of pedal input from the driver, the problem is a tiny hydraulic pressure valve is leaking and applying that brake piston.

SOURCE: Is it possible to bleed

First, the brake line: You should be able to purchase it from any auto parts store, brick and mortar or online. Online try rockauto . com. You might also try a local NAPA store.
You can bleed the brake yourself without any special tools. It is a two person job. 1. Locate the brake bleed fitting, near where the line attaches to the caliper. It look like a zerk fitting. 2. You will need the correct size box end wrench to loosen the fitting. 3. Before loosening the fitting attach a 2-3 foot section of 1/4 or 3/8 inch vacuum hose to the end. 4. Fill a clean small plastic water bottle with 2 inches of new brake fluid. Put the end of the hose in the bottle and be sure the end stays below the fluid level at all times. 5. Remove the brake master cylinder fill cap and be sure the reservoir is full with new fluid. 6. Open the fitting on the brake no more than 1 1/2 turns (2nd person) 7. Slowly pump the brake peddle down and up. Bubbles will come out of the line in the bottle. The goal is to pump the peddle until there are no more bubbles and only fluid is coming out the end of the hose in the bottle. If you do not keep the end of the hose below the fluid level, air will re-enter the caliper. 8. After every 3 pumps on the brake peddle, check the mater reservoir and refill it with new clean fluid. 9. When there are no more bubbles from the hose end, push the bake peddle down and hold down. At the same time, close and tighten the caliper fitting and remove the hose. Then release the brake peddle. 10. You should do this process on all four wheels, to be sure there is no air in the system. 11. Be sure to test the brake in a safe area. There should be no sponginess to the peddle. The vehicle should stop straight, with no pulling to one side or the other.
This is a relatively easy task it you have two people and the right supplies
You need to use care to be sure that now bake fluid gets on any part of the brake pads or rotors. It will also damage paint. Where nitrile gloves and eye protection. DO NOT reuse the bake fluid the you collect in the plastic bottle no matter how clean it looks. Dispose of properly.
You can buy a relatively cheap brake bleeder kit from HarborFrieght Tools

Not getting any brake fluid to rear drums to a 1997 Chevy Tahoe

Must bleed air from brake lines. Done so with help of a friend to pump brake pedal a few times and hold while you loosen and immediately retighten the bleeder screw located right where the line enters drum on the back. Use care, as fluid will start to drain out as air is eliminated in line. Do this repeated times. When only fluid escapes you are finished!

Right rear brakes keeps messing up on a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus, we keep buying new right rear brakes about every two months or less. Can you help us out?

You have to make sure the brake system is operating properly.Change both rear brakes it sounds like the left rear brake side is not working making the right side wear out so quick.After changing the back brakes bleed them making sure you have no air in your brake lines.start bleeding them from the left rear to the right rear to the left front to right front to master cylinder.

these use by directional braking like the volvos have used for decades.that is the left rear brake works with the right front brake and right rear brake works with the left front brake.this is how the brake lines are connected to work for the braking when you have a brake leak you will have to bleed the opposite brake to get the air out.this maybe your problem also if the abs system has air in it then it will have to be bleed of air.

Brake pedal often goes almost to floor-not spongy at all-doesn't seep if pressure constantly applied.

Probably air in the brake system. Bleed your brakes thoroughly. Start with right rear, then left rear, then right front then left front. Maintain proper fluid level in master cylinder while bleeding. Brake pedal hieght comes from the rear brakes, as those are the longest brake lines in the system. Mike

yes you have air in the system.start bleeding at the master cylinder to get all the air out there and work you way down to wheels.the brakes should normally be bleed (say)right front left rear,left front right rear as this is how the brakes work,not both rear brakes work together with the same line or front brakes work together with the same line,as is did pre-80`s cars.make sure it doesn`t run out of brake fluid while bleeding

If I remove a break line from one caliper for replacement, do I need to bleed the breaks on all four wheels or only the one that I have replaced the break line on?

When replacing any brake components it's always a great idea to bleed the brakes. Because your life depends on the serviceability of your brake system. When you open, crack or brake any line in your brake system, you automaticity introduce air into the system. Air can be compressed easily as opposed to brake fluid, which is designed not to compress as well as resist heat. The air in your system will cause your ABS and sensors to malfunction and or not work at all. When bleeding your brake system use this sequence start with: 1)right rear, 2)left rear, 3)front right, 4)front left. All vehicle parts and locations are referred to as the vehicle's left and right sides. Or as your setting in the drivers seat. Hope that helps.

Brake pedal goes to floor i have already changed mastercylinder and bleed brakes no waring lights are coming on new brake have been installed

sounds like air in the line. Did you start your bleed at the right rear.If you replaced the M/C you have air in the line.Get a helper and pump the brakes until all of the air is out , starting at right rear.It may take a few tries to get all the air out , but with new everything it is this or a leak. Was the master C. new or rebuilt. Check all 4 wheels for any sign of a leak. If no leaks and you bleed all the air out maybe your master cylinder is bad.

I am having trouble bleeding my brakes on a ford courier there is no pedal there when i have bled the brakes and i have also tryed changing the master cylinder and it is the same

Start by bleeding master cylinder, will take two to do this, have some pump the brake paddle about ten time every time, have them pump it and hold it down while you open brake line when paddle goes to floor close and pump again ( one of the brake lines at the master cylinder ), keep doing that till no more air comes out, then do the other brake line at master cylinder again till no more air comes out, keep an eye on master cylinder that it don't go low on brake fluid or you will have to start all over again, how go to right rear wheel and bleed till no more air comes out ( have them pump brake paddle and hold while you open and close bleeder valve, do not let them release brake paddle till you have close bleeder valve, keep doing that till no more air comes out, then go to right rear, then left rear, from there right front and last left front.Hope this was very helpful, good luck.

Replaced master cylinder 3 times air in brake line after a few weeks only front right brake

I am not sure what secquence you used when bleeding the air from the lines. But just to give you a little help if your not sure. Start at the back left, rear passenger side, next= rear right,rear drivers side, then passenger side front, and lastly drivers side front. Also ckeck and make sure all fittings are tight before moving on to the next.
