There are brake hoses back there . they deteriorate from the inside and close shut. replace them. I recommend that you do the front ones also.

Bleeding backs is there a system too do


Bleeding Your Brakes to remove air and replace the fluid.

There is a good video in the link below on that from a qualified mechanic.
(Just do not touch any brake parts that will contact the brake fluid with dirty gloves as you will contaminate the brake fluid). Wear some decent nitrile gloves (or at least latex gloves) when working with brake fluid. Don't get any brake fluid on your skin.
Keep the brake fluid well away from any painted surface as it will remove the paint in a few seconds).

In extreme cold my brake lights come on draining the battery of my 2003 accord, help


Water in your brake fluid expands when it freezes increasing the pressure on you brake fluid causing your brake lights to come on. Drain all of the brake fluid and replace it. This is not a job for a shade tree.

Water gets into your brake fluid because the fluid gets warm when the brakes are used, then cools off. It is called condensation.

Brakes will not bleed, air in lines, not getting fluid to brakes


check the brake booster a lot of times they will leak on the inside of the firewall and run down under the carpet inseide look under the dash where the brake pedal rod goes thru the fire wall and see if there is and brake fluid coming thru
to bleed brakes by myself i use a bottle of brake fluid and get a hose the size of the bleeder on the brakes and put the hose over it and put the other end in the brake fluid open the bleader a little and pump the brakes air goes out and it will pull the fluid back in

Im trying to bleed my brakes, why do i need the brake fluid in the bottle?


If your doing a one man brake bleed, you would have a tube attached to the bleeder valve,
the other end submerged in brake fluid, so when your pumping the brakes to bleed the air
bubbles out, no air can go back into the brake system. good luck!

My brake light did not warn me that i needed brakes


someone probably topped off your brake fluid when your brakes were low. the only way i know is to have new front and back brakes then make sure the brake fluid level is right . the light only comes on if your brake fluid goes low so the system has too much fluid if it says full and your brakes are not new front and back

You need to bleed the brakes and get all of the air out of the system.

When replacing the brake pads on a 2001 oldsmobile alero do you have to bleed the brakes? and how do you do that? One website said all you have to do is take out 2 bolts (we did that and cant get the...


Normally, just a pad replacement would not necessitate brake bleeding. Most calipers are held on by two bolts, so I think the website was right. The reason you could not get the caliper off (and I am guessing here) is that you did not push the piston(s) back into their bores before trying to remove the caliper. Pushing the pistons back is always necessary to give you enough room to get the new pads into place. A C-clamp does this job well. Before pushing on the pistons with the C-clamp, you need to remove the cover of the brake fluid reservoir under the hood and put a towel or something over the top of it. Pushing the pistons in will push brake fluid back through the lines into the reservoir and will often cause it to overflow.

It sounds like the bolt you removed that started the brake fluid dripping was in fact what is called a bleeder valve. Now that the brake lines have been opened, you may in fact have to bleed the brakes after you get the new pads installed.

Parking brake light


The parking brake and the low brake fluid use the same light. If it comes on during acceleration, your brake fluid level is low and you need to add some brake fluid or replace your pads. The brake fluid gets low as the pads wear as the whole system is hydraulic. Another possibility is a brake fluid leak. As you accelerate, the fluid gets pushed back causing the low brake fluid light to turn on.
