Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Ok so i put new rotors, calipers, pads, drums, shoes, and a master cylinder on my jeep then bled the brakes very well, the pedel will build up pressure then loose it this puzzles me. i did not have this problem before the work. please help me.
Same thing happened to me, we went through 3 master cylinders till we figured it out. Each time, same problems. Apparently in the 94 jeep grand Cherokee with the v8 drum rear had used 93 jeep grand Cherokee parts. The rod that operates the master cylinder on the 93 and 94 cherokees are a half in. shorter than the 95. The are using parts from the 95 in the 94 aftermarket master cylinders. We used a reman master cylinder from a 93 jeep part number=10-2640, made by pronto and reman by cardone. Took 4 months of research, much frustration, but that part solved it, and works great.

Check for leaks at the slave cylinders and flexi hoses.
After several attempts of losing pressure - check the brake fluid level in the master.
If you arn't losing any fluid, You've got a damaged seal in the Master cylinder, or are drawing air in due to improper adjustment (excess travel) of slave cylinders.
Are you trying this with engine running? - How does this affect it (using servo assist)

If its all correct parts and adjusted right? pre fsm right?
use a pressure bleeder. system.
you have air in the system.
bleeding is an art and skil
i use 3 ways to bleed, to get it right.
pressure, vacuum and last 2 man way to be sure its correct and ZERO bubbles, be ready with 1 qt of DOT/3/4 ,
you will have lots of air in the system, and loves to hide
think like this.
you bleed top to bottom right?
and air floats up hill
see that conundrum?
that means it not easy or for the quick fix guys.
be ready to do all ways to bleed.
there are 5.
be ready, and win,...
rtm , read the manual yet on correct assembly>?
it free, read it ,see if you messed up first.

Initial testing: After you have removed the ebrake cable - kneel
in front of the rotor and give it a gentle shake (as if
you were removing it). Do you notice any PLAY between
the pads & rotor?? Make note of this.
