Its possible it could be the master cylinder itself, It should always push fluid. Does the car have ABS? It could also be inside the ABS module if it does. I am familiar with brake systems and diagnostics, just not familiar with this year olds whether it has abs or not.

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.

If it has ABS, you have to bleed them from the caliper upwards with a special unit that pressurizes the brake fluid in a bottle. Some also need a scan tool.

I tried to bleed the brakes rf good lf no fluid comes out.replaced rf line working good,pulled line from master cyl. and pulled bleeder valve no fluid. i have a 99 cavilier with abs,any idea.i havent tried...


Im confused first thing is to connect all lines, fill master and start bleeding at master, have someone pump brake three times and hold, open line at master allow fluid or air to flow and close, do not leave open to long,after 3 sec of fluid flow close line. you will do this to every line on the master. pumping the pedal three times and holding down pedal every time you open the line , after bleeding master you will then go to the left front as this is the brake with no fluid flow. you will make sure brake fluid is full always check after a few bleedings.

Remove the bleeder screw and place finger over the hole. tell them when to go down and when to let up, this may take a while if a lot of air is in system, remove finger and tell them to push down then put finger over hole and tell to release then tell them to push as they push release finger, you will need to do this until you get fluid flow making sure when pedal is released that hole is covered with finger so that air is not sucked into system. once you get a flow you will put bleeder in and bleed that wheel, if bleeding is good you will then bleed system starting at rt rear then left rear and then rt front and last left front.

First, there is NO Pumping of the brake pedal
involved in bleeding brakes

I think your smart enough to know you
need to replace both rear brake hoses,
before you proceed with the bleeding

No brake fluid to the rear wheel cylinders


You'll need to start bleeding the brake system at the Master cylinder to determine where the problem lies.

The lines coming out of the master cylinder will need to be loosened & bled there, initially you can just do the back ones to identify the problem, but once fixed, the system will have to be bled from the Master cylinder first, then the farthest wheel from it, then next farthest, then next, until you do the drivers wheel last.

This method of bleeding the brakes prevents air from crossing from one line to another, causing air to be left in the system.

Back to bleeding the rear brakes first: As someone pumps up the brake pressure, making sure the resivoir stays full, with the cap on between bleeding, and have the person pressing the pedal to do these thngs.
1. Always move the pedal slowly, pressing and releasing.
2. Never release the pressure on the pedal after bleeding a brake, until the line is tightened, then release slowly to prevent air from getting into the fluid.

You should of course get fluid at the master cylinder when you bleed it (or just replace it), then you'll need to bleed the line at the right rear wheel (first) a few times to get fluid if it's been leaking, then the left rear wheel. If you get pressure but no fluid to the rear and the master cyliinder did have pressure released when you bled it, there is either a restriction in the line itself, or the porportioning valve could be damaged. (unusual for the valve to go bad actually, inspect lines for damage such as being pinched if you're getting pressure but no fluid.

Final test if it hasn't been resolved-remove lines at porportioning valve & make sure fluid is leaving/entering there as it should. If you find it defective, a good replacement can come from a salvage yard, or you can buy them new.

Brake fluid on the floorboard under the dash near the brake pedal=bad Master Cylinder.

good luck

I have bleed rear breaks.I cant seem to get fluid to rear.The ABS light is on along with the break light.Is it possible that there is a faulty ABS sensor not allowing fluid to be distributed to the rear...


I'm confused, how did U bleed the rear brakes and there's no fluid to them? first of all U need to get fluid to the rear.

  1. Make sure there fluid in the brake reserve
  2. leave the cap off the reserve
  3. crack open the furthest bleeder valve till fluid come out (take it off if U have 2)
  4. if nothing still come out, then U have a clogged brake line
  5. blow back through the line from the brake side (slow till it bubbles back through the reserve
  6. then gravity bleed it, tighten up the the valve
  7. now U can bleed the brakes
