Is the brake pedal soft or go to the floor? you could have a rusted out or pinched metal brake line, or the rubber brake hose could be clogged, you must trace the hose and metal line back to the master and look for leaks or rust, then unscrew the line from the master and make sure you get fluid there while depressing the pedal, and just keep disconnecting down the line until you get fluid to the caliper be sure your bleeder screw is not just clogged with rust remove it all the way and depress the pedal to see if you have fluid there please rate -jeff

Everything new on front drivers side brake but it is not getting brake fluid to it

Remove the brake piping to the offending wheel and make sure you do not have a blocked pipe or damaged fitting. Then make sure fluid is flowing by working from the master cylinder forward all the way to the offending wheel.

Rear passenger brake dosen't work

Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

Ford 2004 f250 king ranch v10 6.8 brakes are not working.

In this case, you will need to leak the for wheels, never leak only one or two wheels when adjusting the breaks. If the leaking continues you need to check the conduit for potential damages. If pedal stay soft after checking everything else, check the break fluid unit. The unit has a piston if I'm not wrong. The piston has some parts that are of rubber material which can wear out or get damaged.

I dont know where to put the brake fluid there is no label in car and i dont have a manual

I'm not 100% sure on that car but every car I have worked on the brake fluid goes into the reservoir located in front of the master cylinder with is attached to the brake booster. Usually on the drivers side by the closer to the fire wall.

Can not get good brake after bleeding.what the best way to bleed it

the correct way to bleed brakes requires 2 people. you start from the wheel farthest from the master cylinder which would be the passenger rear, pump the brakes 5 times an hold it down on the 5th time open the bleeder screw an close it, then have your helper pump the brake pedal 5 times and hold it down on the 5th time open the bleeder screw then close it, repeat this until you have a solid stream of brake fluid coming out with no air pockets. then carry these steps over onto the driver side rear, passenger side front, and then finally the driver side front. make sure to fill your master cylinder with brake fluid in between each wheel, this is very important because if you dont you will get air pockets in your lines an have to do it all over again

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running

Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.
