My rear back breaks won't bleed.We have replaced master cylinder,break cylinder,front&back breaks,resivor.We have the front breaks that bleed every time.My pedal goes to the floor.Any ideas?

Jennifer, some brake systems have special procedures to bleed brake systems, some systems have to be plugged into a special scan tool which will cycle different solenoids to allow proper bleeding. You may have to get a good technician with proper equipment to bleed the brakes.

Brakes went out,master cylinder is dry. filled the master cylinder pumped brakes and bled rear drivers side

    If there is a substantial fluid eruption, there are air bubbles still trapped in the system. You must repeat the bleeding procedure to remove that air. A modest disturbance in the fluid returning to the reservoir indicates a properly bled brakesystem.

When bleeding the brake, should the engine be running

Engine should be off and pump brake about 4 times to release pressure, then bleed,driver side rear,passenger side rear,passenger side front,then driver's side front,use a bleeder kit.If pressure won't hold and you have drum brakes,remove both rear hubs and check wheel cylinders for leakage.Check flexable fuel lines at wheels and it could be a bad brake master cylinder.

How do you bleed the rear brakes on a Bentley continental GT

you have to do a full vehicle brake bleed you cannot just do the rear and its the split diagonal bleed. there are bleeder screws on each brake caliper in this order. front driver, rear passanger, front passanger, and then rear driver. i recommend that you do a pressure bleed but you will have to go to a dealer or a known place where they have the proper eqiuptment. Hope this helps.

Changed both front (rears are drums and did not change) brake calibers and pads on my 1998 F150 pickup 2 wheel drive. In doing so I let the master cylinder go empty. How do I bleed the brakes now. I have...

your probably going to have to bleed the entire system.1st try & bleed the master cyl.
basicly the same as you would bleed the front/rear brakes. pump pedal & hold while someone
loosen the brake line on the master cyl. after m/c is bleed move to r/r,l/r,r/f,l/f wheels in
that order. if you have abs brakes & you got air in the pump a scan tool may be needed
to bleed properly.

I changed about everything,cylinders calipers,shoes,pads,and new rotors. then after following correct bleeding proceedures still no pedal.oh, and no e- brake either .what the heck am i doing wrong?(1991...

If you have no e brake that tells me your problem is something to do w/rear brakes. Pull your re brakes back apart and make sure everything is seated properly. Sounds like you didn't adjust rear shoes out far enough. Double check rear adjustment THEN bleed again - rt rear -> lft rear ->rt frt -> lft frt.

I replaced rear calipers bled brakes brake on on dash and abs light is on replaced all park brake cables no rear brakes how do i adjust rears and bleed properly, do i have to do something with computer

When bleeding brakes always bleed the wheel furthest away first and then finish at the left front. if you don't get rear brakes after several attempts...chances are your master cylinder will be bad...On the brakes...check the sensors at the rear and make sure the wires are all connected and the sensors are clean/tight. The do sometimes go bad...but not that often. Are you bleeding the brakes properly? Two person or a one person with or without a one man assist unit? The easiest is the two man bleed. Have someone in the car and to gently pump the brakes until you get a nice firm pedal then have them hold down the pedal very firmly...Loosen the bleeder quickly so it pushes/flushes out the lines of dirt and air...about 8-10 times would be common for the back before a good flush/bleed is complete. When the valve is cracked open the pedal should go to the floor and should be held there until the bleeder is completely closed again...then repeat the pedal procedure until you get a nice clean stream of brake fluid and no air in it flowing from the bleeder. NOTE about every three or four times make sure you top off/check you brake fluid in the master cylinder to keep it from running out and getting more air into the system.

Replaced master,still soft pedal 2001 sportage

A perssure bleeder is the best way to bleed the brakes. You can't properly just bleed one or two lines. You must start with the left rear, then right rear, then front right and finally front left. Any other order will just push a bubble around.

92 dodge van rear ABS-brake and ABS lights on/can't reset?

Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light
