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.

1991 buick park avenue brake problem had busted brake line on drivers side rear brake so i fixed it then bleed the brakes.aint getting no brake fluid comming out of the passenger side rear so took of the...


Hi Chris, The brake system is basically very simple. If you have duel braking on your vehicle, the usual method is having two brakes operate on the front with for example the left rear and the other system will also operate two front and the right rear. This type of system will have two calipers on each of the front wheels. The tandem system works in a slightly different way, having the forward part of the cylinder pressurizing the rear brakes and the rear part of the cylinder pressurizing the front. I think under the circumstances you are describing, I would have a friend sit inside and pump the brakes repeatedly until the system becomes pressurized (maybe twenty thirty times of pumping the brake pedal) and then ask him or her to keep it pushed firmly down until you find out where its leaking. The amount of brake fluid you report having been sed would indecate a severe leakage. Check the lower parts of the rear wheels for signs of leaking wheel cylinders and then dito for the front wheels. Any signs of wetness at these areas and along the brake system (the plumbing or pipe work) will indicate where the leakage is. If you cannot identify a wheel which is leaking, carefully inspect around and blow the master cylinder and if this no sign go along the fluid lines, taking special note of where the damaged pipe was repaired. If there is a blockage in the line, air may be trapped at that point causing difficulty in pressurizing. Once the place of leakage has been identified it must be attended to before bleeding the system. When bleeding, begin with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder, and work your way back to the master cylinder one wheel at a time, until you reach the closest.Keep in mind that you may find it required to pump the pedal many many times before opening the bleed nipple.Regards John

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.
