Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I just bought a 1993 honda accord EX. I replaced all the brake pads and LR caliper and bleed the brakes. The other day coming home in trakkic with my AC on, my brakes went all the way to the floor. I turned off the AC and notice they did not do it again. When I turned on the AC the brake went to the floor again. I came home and change the old brake fluid and bleed the system again. everything was fine, until today I turned on my AC for the first time since changing the fluid and the barkes traveled to the floor again and barely stopped. Have you heard of this before? Could it be my ABS or should I change the Master Cyclinder. By the way no ABS or Brake light came on.

Do you still have the problem ? If so, try disabling the ABS completely (electrically) by disconnecting the 50 amp breaker and remove the ABS controller. You should have brake power restored and be careful as the brakes will lock now if you apply too much foot pedal pressure. I hope this helps.

Why does 02 Mazda Tribute front passenger brake keep locking up?

Try bleeding some brake fluid on that side. You may have a blockage. Also check if the rotor is in good condition, it may be warped. Good luck!

Hello their, you have answered your question 100%, if you can rebuild the calipers it would save you money instead of getting new/rebuilt ones, and just bleed them normally, then apply to fixya to become one of us :)

I just replaced the front brake pads and calipers, but now I have a very very small amount of brake fluid leaking from both caliper bleed screws, maybe 1/2 drop per day. The bleed screws are tight. How...

You may be over tightening the bleed screws. Both screws
are leaking as well as on a previous car. So where is the
common point of failure? You may have to replace them.
Double check to make sure it's not residual fluid left in
the bleed screw hole that appears after brakes get hot.

Should the center spindle nut and 2 torgued phillip head screws be removed to replace front brake rotor on 1999 honda accord lx

will try to help. 1st remove the wheel, then remove the 2 caliper bolts that hold the brake caliper on. after removal of brake caliper, [it should just pull off after the 2 bolts are removed] replace the brake pads[be sure to apply anti squeal lube to the outer side of the pads..not the pad itself,the one not contacting the brake rotor] install the pads, the you will need a C clamp to push the brake caliper pistons back into the caliper. i've used this installation easily. use the old pad ,place it against the caliper piston,then apply the C clamp and push the caliper piston back into the brake caliper, then the brake caliper will slide back over the new pads easily, no need to bleed the brakes if you use this solution. replace the brake caliper bolts, then go to next side and repeat the process. after the replacement of the front brake pads,pump the brakes with engine running!!! it's really a simple process. be sure the brake pads are facing the brake rotors with the [pads] facicing the rotors. no metal facing metal. easy! if you have added brake fluid recently, do not be alarmed if you see fluid coming out of the brake master cylinder,when you use the C clamp to collaspe the brake caliper back into the recessed position. [as always when you have to add brake fluid to the brake master cylinder,it only means your brakes are wearing naturally. if you have a vibration in front wheels or steering wheel when braking, you have a brake rotor or both front brake rotors that need replacement with your brakes also. hope this helps and as always, please get a second opinion if you have doubt. an expert will be happy to help. thank you for choosing

Just replaced the rear brakes do i have to or is it a Must to Bleed the Brakes????????????????

If you did not replace the calipers or wheel cylinders or you did not open the bleeder screws than there is no reason to bleed the brakes. Most brake services where just the brake pads or shoes are replaced are done without bleeding the brakes.

The only time you need to bleed the brakes is if you replace a caliper, wheel cylinder, brake line, brake hose, or master cylinder.

You can also bleed or flush the brakes as maintenance. Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture. Over time this moisture will reduce the boiling point of the break fluid. Lower boiling point means that under heavy braking the brake fluid can get hot enough to boil. Once it boils you get air bubbles and lose your braking ability. So flushing/bleeding the brake system every once and a while just makes good sense.

1990 Honda accord brake problems

Short of jacking up the wheel and putting a new car underneath, you've just about covered all the possibilities. But I wonder, perhaps in your attempts to solve this, if you have inadvertantly introduced another fault? As you know, the brake master cylinder on a disc braked vehicle has no static valve. If there were to be a static valve in the master cylinder, the brakes would lock on after a few pumps. But this would affect both front wheels. There could also be a collapsed section in one of the flexible hoses which would let fluid through for bleeding but not allow the fluid to return. this would hold the brake on too. When you had the cliper off, did the rotor trun freely?

1990 Honda accord brake problums

Your problem look like if there is still some air in the calipper cylinder.
I suggest you loosen the brake hose at the calliper and completely retract the piston.
Then thighen back the hose and perform a normal bleeding procedure of the front brake lines.

I’m assuming you got either the factory original ceramic brake pads or at least a decent quality aftermarket ceramic brake pad, not some cheapo semi metallic brake pad, such as Duralast or Raybestos PG’s.

When you replaced them did you properly lube the metal to metal contact points on the calipers? Remember, the pads have to be free floating, otherwise they will not properly engage and disengage from the rotors.

Did possibly some of the caliper lube get on the friction part of the brake pads? Whoops, no friction then. It happens, solution is buy another set, sorry.
Did you bleed all four brakes? Even though the system was not “Opened”, guess what, it already was every time you touch your brakes. The extreme heating and cooling during normal brake operations, even more so on Antilock Braking Systems (ABS ), sucks in moisture through those rubber brake lines and various other connection points. That’s the first reason why you do a quick bleed of the system. The second is to balance out the four wheel braking abilities, if you don’t, as the front wheels start to slow faster then rear, the ABS system releases the front brakes to maintain control.
