A tech told you it was not the vacuum pump, i think hes wrong, this sounds like the vacuum pump is bad, you would need to have a vac test done on it to see if its bad, if the pump tests good then you may have two diffrent problems, the heat may be due to a bad actuator motor that controls the selector door, and the brakes may have a bad booster,

97 thunderbird...new blower,sensor,switch panel, but vents won't change...vaccume leak? ...v-8


There is generally a cylinoid under the dash that runs the flaps in the car's vents to change whitch way they go, check that and also check if it has a relay in the fuse panel or under the dash it may be out. To chech the relay you can look on the back for the numbers and they will match with others in the pannel on the car just swop it out with a nother and then try if it workes then you know that the relay is bad and you need a new one. If not then you know that the cylinoid is bad and needs replaced.

I have a 2004 Land cruiser and changed the right rear brake cyl and brake shoes . What is the proper procedure to bleed the rear brake system. Thank you for your help.


  1. Check the fluid level in the reservoir after bleeding each wheel. Add DOT3 fluid, if necessary.
  2. If the master cylinder was disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder.
    2. Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.
    3. Block off the outlet plug with your finger, and release the brake pedal.
    4. Repeat 3 or 4 times.

  3. Bleed the brake starting with the one furthest from the reservoir and then the next furthest, etc.
  4. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
  5. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug to 11 Nm (8 ft. lbs.), then release the brake pedal.
  6. Repeat until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
  7. Repeat the procedure to bleed the air out of brake line for each wheel.
  8. Check the fluid level and add DOT3 fluid if necessary.

Brake pedal hard to press has a hissing sound


Check the vaccume line going to the brake booster. BUT if you can hear a hissing sound from inside and the pedal is hard to press more than likely your going to need a new brake booster and a new brake master cylinder.

Air in brake lines


If it's really air in the lines it will take two people to bleed it out, and if you're not careful you can make the problem even worse. You will need a bucket, a rag, and a small wrench (usually 3/8 or 7/16, and a box wrench works best). The lucky person needs to pump the brake pedal several times until the brakes are rock hard. Then the unlucky person needs to open the small bleeder valve of the back of a wheel (near where the brake line enters the wheel) and let the combination of air and brake fluid spray out - hopefully into the bucket. Once the pedal hits the floor, tighten the valve. Repeat this process two or three times on each wheel, or until the flow is all fluid - no air, making sure that the bleeder valve is retightened each time before the brake pedal is released. If the pedal is released with the valve open, air will be sucked into brake system, making the problem even worse. Oh yeah, the rag is for the brake fluid that misses the bucket and ends up all over the pavement and the guy working the bleeder valves.
