Hi! They sure know how to bleed a car but just a thought on this, since the pedal is on the floor right after the bleeding the prolem will be on the hydrovac. Its not the brake master cylinder either but the HYDROVAC. If the hydrovac has a vaccum leak the brake pedals will surely go to the floor. Atleast you have an idea on this. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

you have to bleed all 4 brakes even if you only replaced the 2 , start with the brake farthest from the master cylinder, and work your way up to the closest one, which in your case would be passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front, drivers front, make sure as your doing this, that the master cylinder never runs out of fluid, or you have to start all over

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...


it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

Unable to bleed brakes


If you tried to compress the caliper w/o the bleed port open you could have backed the fluids up into the ABS box and damaged one of the one way valves in it.

Break pressure


Make sure you are trying to bleed the system in this order (Right rear, Left rear, Right front, Left front). If you are doing this and still not getting pressure, you should check the brake lines going to the rear for leaks. If you find a leak, replace that segment of line, bleed the system again and problem should be solved.

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.


Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.
