I have a 2003 jeep liberty. I just replaced the brake line and bleed the brakes, yet the brake pedal is still going all the way down to the floor. Do I need a special tool to bleed the brakes?

No, you will need to start the engine let it run as you re-bleed the brakes, do this to activate the ABS system.

What would cause there to be no brakes what so ever even after replacing all the broken brake lines and bleeding them all on a 2003 Hyundai elantra?

if this has anti-lock brakes it may be the HCU(hydraulic control unit) may have air in it. it may have to be activated to get all the air out.

How do I bleed the brakes after replacing a brake line?

the wheel that the line you replaced is where you start. make sure the master cylinder doesn`t get low on brake fluid. crack open the bleed screw and have someone push down on the pedal and when the pedal is at the floor have them hold it down and close the bleeder. have them release the pedal and repeat until you get a solid stream of brake fluid. then go to the opposite wheel and bleed that wheel cylinder, again until you get a solid stream and a firm pedal.

Having trouble bleeding brakes for 2009 jeep wrangle 4wh drive when car is off the brakes seem fine , but when the car is on the brake pedal goes almost to the floor

Because when you start it the brake booster will start working, start bleed on wheel farthest from master cylinder and work closer, one at a time pump up and bleed each line at least once after you don't see air anymore...

Jeep brakes

It is very difficult to diagnose this problem with the little bit of information you gave. If the brakes are drum brakes check to see if the brake cylinder is working and has no leaks, lift the rubber seals and make sure there are no leaks there, check the brake adjuster make sure that works okay. If everything works and you bled the brakes properly, then the problem is most likely is the master cylinder or the wheel cylinder.

While bleeding the brakes always make sure you check the master cylinder reservoir to make sure the fluid level is up so you do not get air in the brake lines. When bleeding the brakes did you have someone press down hard on the brake pedal hold the pressure on the brake pedal when opening the bleeder then push the brake pedal to the floor keep it there, until you tightened the bleeder, then pump the brakes up and hold it there, while you repeated the bleeding operation by opening the bleeder when the brake pedal go\'s to the floor keep the pedal down until you tighten the bleeder and then pump the brake pedal back up then check the fluid level in the reservoir, keep doing it until the brake fluid shows no sign of air.

If the brake pedal is pumping up during the bleeding process and you made sure you got all the air out of the brakes and then the pedal go\'s to the floor, make sure the fluid level is correct in the reservoir and the bleeder is closed tight and there are no leaks in the lines, wheel cylinder, brake cylinder the brake adjuster is working and master cylinder, and if you still have no brakes then it must be a defective piston in the wheel or brake cylinder, if there is a seal problem with the pistons you will not get any pressure to push the brake fluid. let me know how you are doing.

Any time the internal pressurizable portion of the brake system is breached, i.e. bad seals, broken lines, replacing ABS or master cylindar or blown out cylindars at the wheel you must bleed all the air out of the system. A proper bleed requires 2 people. one person operates the bleed screws while the other holds the pedal down. The screw operator is in charge they tell the pedal operator when to push. the pedal must not be released until the bleed screw is closed again or it will **** air back into the line.

to bleed the system you top it off with fluid then
Open a single bleed screw. tell the person to press the pedal and hold it. the bleed screw will sputter with air and fluid forced out. close the screw and then tell the person in the vehicle to release the pedal. repeat this as many times as necessary to get a steady stream of fluid with no air out. close the screw and that line is done move to the next. The bleed screws are located in slightly different spots on different cars but they should all be somewhere near the caliper or cylinder on the back side of each wheel. Obviously you can trace the brake lines to them.

You changed the master cylinder and vacuum booster and have no leaks anywhere, but did you bleed the entire brake system after you did this work? A little bit of air in any of the lines will make the brakes ineffective.
