You can also try pressure bleeding by using a large cork in the master cylinder fill hole and pump a tire pump into the brake system with the bleeder open. This forces the fluid through the ABS mechanism. You have to be careful not to put too much pressure, just enough to push the fluid through. You need to do this to all wheels that lost fluid.

1998 cherokee sport 4wd 6.0 abs light is on. have changed front, back brakes and master cylinder. have also bled brakes and cylinder prioi to install


The abs light being on is signaling that there is a bad electrical part in the abs system, usually a bad abs sensor on one of the wheels. You should have the abs codes from your jeep read to find out exactly which part is bad.

Changed front brakes on 2000 grand cherokee, bled brakes, and pedal seems spongier than normal


You still have air in the brakes,start at the master cylinder,then the rear,right wheel,left rear,and right front,then the left front.Make sure the calipers are releasing completely ,if they are not,then a brake hose could be bad.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks


First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

Bleeding brake system how?


BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

Brakes on 2002 grand jeep cherokee laredo want to go to the floor


if there are no leaks, and the brake fluid is full, then most likely the master cylinder is bad. were the brakes bled to try to solve this problem or did this problem happen after the brakes were bled. you really need to tell the complete history about the problem.
