You can uaually gravity bleed. Make sure the reservoir is full, then unscrew the bleeder nut (above the brake line at the cylinder) a couple of turns. Use a drain pan under the wheel. Watch the fluid coming out until it flows with no bubbles, then tighten the bleed nut. Check pedal for stiffness. If necessary, pressure bleed as follows. Have a second person pump up and hold the brake pedal down while you open and then close the bleeder. repeat this procedure until no more air comes out the port. Any questions, please reply.

94chevy 1500 can't get the rear brakes bled


I had a experience with a car that REFUSED to let all air out its lines, and a friend of mine bought 4 vise grips, and gently grabbed the three hoses (from each wheel) that where not beeing bleed.
first he grabbed all four wheels, and notices a slight mush on the pedal and said that the master cyl was not properly bleed, he bleeded the cyl in a bench, then assembled the cyl and now the pedal was very stiff, then procedded to remove rear-right hose, and the pedal almost went to the floor, THERE WAS THE BUBBLE!, and bleeded acordingly, then reatached the vise grip on the OK line, and released the one on the rear-left, slight mush and bleeded, and so on. each time he tested for possibly air bubbles in each sector (master cyl, or lines, or caliper or aux cyl itself).
BUT!, IF your master cyl is NOT pumping fluid to the rear, probably the proportioning valve is broken (if yours has ABS, might the abs valves are dirty, and thus NOT closing and letting pressure go other way, because a failed abs pump SHOULD behave transparently, I mean , not interfering with the braking operation)
get quality FLARE WRENCHES, because the air bubble MIGHT not be right in the bleed bolt in the caliper/aux cyl.

Have you tried to bleed the brakes,it sounds like you have air in the system. I would try bleeding the brakes first ,start with the wheel farthest from the master cyl. The right rear,left rear,right front left front. If that does'nt help check the master cyl and brake booster.

Changed both front (rears are drums and did not change) brake calibers and pads on my 1998 F150 pickup 2 wheel drive. In doing so I let the master cylinder go empty. How do I bleed the brakes now. I have...


your probably going to have to bleed the entire system.1st try & bleed the master cyl.
basicly the same as you would bleed the front/rear brakes. pump pedal & hold while someone
loosen the brake line on the master cyl. after m/c is bleed move to r/r,l/r,r/f,l/f wheels in
that order. if you have abs brakes & you got air in the pump a scan tool may be needed
to bleed properly.

88 t-bird non abs. the front brakes drag. i have replaced all rubber lines also new master cyl. new front brake calipers. rear brake hose preasure will bleed of after it has set for 15 to 20 min.can...


This is bizarre... I'm suspecting dirt in line(s). Are you bleeding correctly? Starting w/ Right rear, left rear, right front, then left front. You might try using a power bleeder also. A possible long shot, is brake proportioning valve sticking.

Brake bleed sequense


right rear 1st, then left rear, then right front then left front, this is the same for any car or truck. Always check the master cyl fluid level after bleeding each brake.
