Your life would be made much easier by using a vacuum pump. You should be able to pick up a vacuum hand pump with a bleeder kit for about $30-40 from any parts store. Just keep the brake fluid full and pump out all of the air from the bleeder. You'll wish you knew about this yesterday.....

I have replaced the master cylinder on my 2006 chrysler town and country about every week we keep losing brake pedal so we have bleed them and get pedal back. the only place i find air is the front driver...


Could be a couple of problems, bad master cylinder (not bench bled properly or bad seal out of the box, I have had a few like that), proportioning valve seal, brake line not tight/sealed properly sucking air into system,bad caliper. First of all, are you losing brake fluid along with your pedal? Need to know that first. If you are, try to find where you losing it from, you will find your problem. There can be absolutly NO leaks in a brake/hydraulic system. If not, check that all lines are tightly seated and nuts are quite tight using a line wrench to get proper torque. If so, you can replace the master cylinder again (take old one back to store for new one under warranty) and be sure to thoroughly bench bleed. When bench bleeding, take your time, do not push plunger in too quickly, use a SLOW steady push until ALL bubbles, no matter how small have been eliminated. Tapping on the bottom of the cylinder while bleeding will help remove trapped air. Even a very small amount of air will take forever to bleed out at the calipers. If cylinder/all calipers/lines appear to be right, I would suspect the proportioning valve is faulty. To find it, follow brake lines from master cylinder to where they go into the valve. Replace. Hope that helps.

1999 sunfire replaced left rear brake line now i can not get fluid to rear brake lines


There is probably an air bubble in there.
Get a partner to push on the pedal as you simultaneously open up the bleeder screw.

One shouldn't have to use the abs brake bleeding procedure if no air got into the abs braking master cylinder area.

Keep trying to manually bleed the air out of the brake line. May have to tilt the car backwards to get the fluid to drip out by itself,
although air in the line can sometimes be difficult to get out after changing the rear brake line.

Good luck on this repair.

Brake pedal goes to floor i have already changed mastercylinder and bleed brakes no waring lights are coming on new brake have been installed


sounds like air in the line. Did you start your bleed at the right rear.If you replaced the M/C you have air in the line.Get a helper and pump the brakes until all of the air is out , starting at right rear.It may take a few tries to get all the air out , but with new everything it is this or a leak. Was the master C. new or rebuilt. Check all 4 wheels for any sign of a leak. If no leaks and you bleed all the air out maybe your master cylinder is bad.

Brake pedal goes down close to the floor and there is a serious delay in braking action. Does not pump up like when there is air in the line. It happened after we replaced front and rear brakes including...


It seems like there is still air in the lines, also I would check the Power Brake Booster and Master Cylinder to make sure they are working properly.

Where is the location where i add brake fluid to a chrysler town and country. my brake and anti lock brake ligfht are both on


unless you know how to bleed brake lines, do not attempt to add brake fluid as you will also introduce air into the lines. have a local shop you trust do the work.

2003 town and country brake problem


Did your mechanic use a DRB III or equivalent scanner before performing the bleeding procedure after installing the master cylinder? This is a requirement by the manufacturer (Chrysler) when bleeding the brake system.
