Question about 2007 HM CRE F250X

1 Answer

Brakes Before anyone says it. Yeah I did a search and didnt come up with what I was looking for. I reciently changed the front break line on my CR. At first manually bleed the breaks. It took forever but got the air out but the breaks still felt mushy. So I went and got a vacuum bleeder kit. Only problem is I let the fluid get too low in the master cylinder and sucked some air. So I reblead the line again got all the air out but the breaks still feel mushy. What did I do wrong?

You probably still need to bleed them more. You can also try to backwards bleed them by pushing the pads apart as far as they will go. This will push air up and out of the master cylinder. Be sure to have the cover off of it when you do this though. Hope that helps a little.

Squealing at the right front wheel


The brake lining's have worn away, the squealing was metal to metal (worn pad against metal disc) The worn pad will have damaged the brake disc. Very dangerous. You will now have to have new brake pads and discs fitted to BOTH front wheels to put it right. Good luck

We changed the pads, rotors, drums and shoes on our 2001 montana, after we were done the break pedal goes to the floor, we were told to change the master cylinder and did,, but it didnt fix the problem,...


After you change brakes you need to bleed air from the brake lines what you need to do is find the bleeder valve its usually rite beside where the brake line goes in the calipers and looks like a grease fitting get someone to pump the brake pedal 3 or 4 times and hold it while someone else loosens the bleeder valve to drain the air out keep the pedal mashed until you get the bleeder valve tightend back up . Do each wheel until fluid comes out check brake fluid while doing this so it doesnt run out. Hope this helps

Hi I changed the master cylinder in my 1977 f 150 and found I had leaks in the rear break line. I plugged off the rear break line at the master cylinder,hoping to at least have front breaks, however I...


Hi, if you plug the port, the plunger will not be able to build pressure in the front lines as the back brake section of the master will hold the plunger back. The proportioning valve will also not let you do this, as it is trying to strike a balance between the front and rear brake pressure. I'm afraid you need to repair the rear brake lines. This is not hard work, but it does require a brake line tool for cutting and flaring the lines. You may be able to borrow the tool, or check to see how much a brake place would actually charge to replace the lines. The supplies are cheap, and the labor isn't really very long--maybe a couple hours.

Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.
