91 CHEVY S10

Thank you. What you are saying is happening.The system is getting harder to press as I push down on the brakes. As i look the back brakes need to be replaced. they are all rusted looking and thin. could changing the back brakes help the bleeders and the overall problem that I am having.

    Almost fixed now. although these were great help, I found out I was not actually bleeding them. I didn't realize that the bleeder valve, after you take the cap off, turns and then brake fluid comes out. Simply me. Thanks everyone for all your help.

    After inspecting the back brakes we found out that there were none. My son said he broke the parking brake and actually it was stuck which in turn ate the back brakes up. We changed everything on the back brakes and its working great.

Just changing the brakes won't help the problem alone. it's a matter about pressure you should have some resistance but no free floating. when you push the pedal down the fluid flows throgh the lines and acuates the wheel cylinders which move the brakes if that is not happening that is a major problem with the master cylinder, booster or both

I just replace the brake booster on a 2000 Chevy Malibu. Now the front brakes drag so bad that they are red hot. What do I do to fix this problem? This seems to be an adjustment on the pushrods.

you misadjusted the push rod. It's too long and that's forcing the master cylinder piston past the compensating port. So as the brakes heat up and the brake fluid expands, the expanding fluid can't blow back into the reservoir. So it builds even more pressure in the lines and causes the brakes to apply even harder.

if you are not getting anything out of the bleeders you have a bad booster you should have fliud flow when you push the pedal down. i would also check that the master cylinder is bench bleeding because if it doesn't then that is bad as well. you should always feel resistance when the system is closed.
