SOURCE: 1982 G30 Chevy Van power steering fluid

Find the power steering pump. The fluid goes in the top of the pump. Look for a twist off cap that has a measuring stick attached to the under side, when you take it off. Make sure you use the correct type of fuild for YOUR kind of vehicle. There are diffrent types for different makes of vehicles. Don't OVERFILL the pump.

SOURCE: can't find where/how to bleed back brakes 2000 dodge grand caravan

The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.

SOURCE: I purchased a 2004 chevy van yesterday, the brake

I have had the ABS light come on and stay on on a 2000 Suburban and a 2003 suburban. In both instances the brake system was fine. If you have not done so I would recommend you have the system checked for codes. If there are no error codes and the system is functioning properly the problem with the light staying on can be solved simply. Or at least I hope this solves your problem.

There is a small ground wire that is secured to the top rear of the engine block. It is on the passenger side of the engine. To find it remove the engine cover and reach back to locate the connection. Over time the ground connection gets compromised by dirt, grease, or corrosion. You need to unbolt this connection, clean the surfaces and re-install. On a friend's truck I just reached back and twisted the connection to seat it better and the lights have not come back on.

It sounds too simple but if it works it is much better that giving money to the dealer or a mech to solve the problem.

SOURCE: I need to know how to bleed the brakes on a 1999 chevy blazer

  1. Apply the brakes several times with the ignition OFF in order to relieve the brake vacuum reserve.
  2. Fill the master cylinder reservoirs with DOT 3 motor vehicle brake fluid.
  3. Maintain the fluid level during bleeding.
    1. If the brake pressure modulator valve of the antilock brake system is replaced or if you suspect that air is trapped inside, bleed the brake pressure modulator valve next.
    2. Follow this sequence if it is necessary to bleed all four wheels:
    6.1. Right rear wheel cylinder or caliper. 6.2. Left rear wheel cylinder or caliper. 6.3. Right front wheel caliper. 6.4. Left front wheel caliper.
    7.1. Place the hex end of the wrench over the wheel cylinder bleeder valve. 7.2. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
    8.1. Place the proper size hex end of the wrench over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.2. Place a clear tube over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.3. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
    1. Slowly apply the brake pedal one time and hold.
    2. Loosen the bleeder valve in order to purge the air from the wheel cylinder or caliper.
    3. Tighten the bleeder valve and slowly release the brake pedal.
    4. Wait 15 seconds. Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
    5. Repeat this sequence, including the 1 5-second wait, until all air is purged from the wheel cylinder or caliper. Tighten the bleeder valve to 7 Nm (62 inch lbs.).
    6. Repeat steps 7-13 at each wheel until the brake system is bled.
    7. Clean any brake fluid off the vehicle that may have gotten on it during the bleeding procedure.
    8. Inspect the brake pedal for sponginess, and inspect the brake warning lamp for an indication of unbalanced pressure. Repeat the bleeding procedure in order to correct either of these conditions.
    9. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.

03 chevy 4x4 how do you bleed the abs?replaced all lines and bled with truck off.good pedal til start up then lost all.guy at auto store said abs needs bled.thanks

Have a look on this link below:
chevy abs bleeding Google Search

In particular a Youtube video:

Bleeding the ABS Brake Control Module On Chevy Using Snap On Solus Ultra
Sometimes it can be a nightmare bleeding the brakes. There seems to be problem after problem or no progress, irrespective of how many times you bleed them. Just a few weeks ago I had the same problem on a 4 litre Jeep.

Have a look on those two links. You obviously know how to bleed brakes and will pick up a tip or two online.

I was in the same position as you - hard pedal until start up after a brake overhaul. I wouldn't like to think how many times I bled the braking system everywhere and nothing worked. Eventually on a Jeep forum somebody suggested changing the brake compensator valve. I did .. and the brakes worked perfectly.

Read a few websites first. You'll het there in the end.

Replace a booster on a chevey 1982 caprice

I believe you're after brake booster? If so, replace both brake booster and master cylinder as an assembly, it will save you a multitude of headaches. Replace both and bleed master cylinder on car then connect brake lines.

Ford van brakes go "soft"

The master cylinder probably needs new seals and the brakes need bleeding. First try replacing the brake fluid and doing a good bleed. If that does not solve the problem, go for the master cylinder.
