You never bleed the brakes

Have to have the engine running for
power booster & abs to work

Need a helper in the car to press the
brake pedal,while you open & close the
bleeder valves,starting at the RR

The bench bleed is a mess & a waste of
time. You walk to the vehicle the fluid runs out.

No pumping involved either bleeding or operating
a motor vehicle

Brakes wont work pedal goes to floor changed the master cyclinder bleed brakes and still have same problem 1990 ford aerostar van

What is the condition of both front calipers? both rear wheel cylinders? and the complete brake lines and hoses of your van? If they are all good with no traces of leakage, then did you bleed the Mastercylinder on the bench first before installing in the van? Did you gravity bleed the 4 wheels first? did you bleed from the farthest wheel first? Are you using a new Master and not a re-built??

I put new brake pads on my 94 ford explorer and i forgot to test the truck last night and this morning i was about to go my job and i have no brake pressure and me and my dad tried to bleed the brakes to...

When you pushed the pistons back into the caliper so the new pads fit over the rotors did you look an see how full the master cylinder was ? You did push the pistons in didn't you ? Over flowed from master cylinder ? After replacing pads you didn't pump up the brakes ? The pedal will go to the floor but should pump up . Just replacing pads wouldn't make the master cylinder go out . How was the pedal before your brake job ?

Brake pedel goes to floor & no brakes. I changed rotors & pads 4 mos ago. Has fluid in resevior. Can`t get to pump up.

check the master cylinder. it can go bad without leaking. the fluid bypasses the internal cups causing a fall in the pedal. also if you broke the lines lose to do calipers you might have air in the system bleed it good. if not i suspect the master cylinder

1996 dodge ram 1500 4x4 Brake pedal depresses to floor when making a full left turn or right turn. Replaced master cylinder 4 times, brake booster, brake proportioning valve. all master brake cylinders...

Sounds like a wheel bearing is bad. This would allow the brake rotor to wobble when you turn, pushing the brake caliper piston back into the severely released state. So, when you press on the pedal, it takes a lot of fluid to make up for that large gap. Check for play in the wheel bearings on the front.

Install brake pads on the rear of a 2002 Ford Thunderbird

remove wheel
remove pads, they just clips on to the caliper and will pop right off with a screwdriver.
There are 2 different kinds of calipers that ford uses. on oine you will be able to take a c-clamp and force the piston back into the caliper. ON the other type you have to have a $10 tool from oriellys. This tool will hook to the backside of the caliper and turn the piston back in. ONce the piston is backed off, clip on new pads, and slide over rotor. Should be 1 pad on each side of the rotor.

there is no need to bleed the brakes unless you loosen lines which you shouldnt have to do.

Just replaced master cylinder on 1990 aerostar and bled the brakes, still the pedal goes to floor and i have no brakes

Did you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it? then when you installed the new master, did you bleed all 4 points? If yes, then check all for points for leaking caliper/s and leaking wheel cylinder/s. If the van has ABS, check the valve body for a bleeder screw and see if air bleeds out of it. If you've checked everything twice and did everything right then your new master cyl. may be defective.

Brake pedal goes too far down. Brakes still stop car fine. Too much pedal travel. 2005 model year.

You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid
