Question about 2000 Moto Guzzi V 10 Centauro

1 Answer

Brakes Never had problems in the past with call2 brake bleeding but Spada 3 which should be the same is driving me more insane than usual. No matter what I do they're still spongey. I've tried refurb kit in master rear cylinder. No difference. Tried detaching rear and front calipers and holding them up to bleed them

No difference. Can't get any bubbles! Damned things are still spongey. Must be air in there somewhere unless I'm missing something besides another brain cell. Anyone got any cunning plans please?ou could try reverse bleeding!! Syringe and a length of clear tube fill syringe and tube with brake fluid crack open the bleed nipple, let a small amount of fluid out, then connect tube to nipple open the nipple a bit more and push the syringe. Should see fluid come up into fluid reservoir, dont let reservoir overflow This sovled a problem on a honda once , after I changed the brake hoses!!,,,

I have replaced 3 disc brake calipers on my 2001 pt cruiser. after bleeding all 4 brakes 3 times, I started the car and brake pedal goes to floor. is my brake booster shot?


Michael:

You must start bleeding the brakes at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (usually the right rear), then the next farthest from the master cylinder, then the next, then the closest. If your master cylinder is at the left front of the car, start with the right rear, then the left rear, then the right front, then the left front. If you don't bleed the brakes in the correct order, you are just shifting the air in the lines from one line to another. Make sure that you close the bleeder before letting the brake pedal up, and the engine should not be running when you bleed the brakes... Make sure that the emergency brake is off. Make sure that the master cylinder does not run out of brake fluid at any time that you are bleeding the brakes.

bleed the brakes by applying the pedal to generate pressure
same as you do in a car
gravity bleeding allows air back up the lines and vacuum bleeding sucks air in past the brake seals

My 99 Plymouth grand voyager has a recurring brakes problem.What could be wrong?


Fixed--- I don't think so !!

3 Mechanics-that is sad

How about the power brake booster?
Was that checked & the vacuum check valve okey?

You wouldn't be happy if that solved the issue & you
got the valve off the wall on a trip thru the parts store
& installed yourself

What about ABS Issues?

What happens if you command the valves open
with a scan tool,bleed system & test drive with scanner
and valves still open or disconnect the motor to it & drive
around a few days.

I remember a load leveler valve under the back on
the drivers side on some caravans?

The fluid has to go somewhere,if not back into the reservoir,
then the abs unit maybe.

Better check the not leaking part yourself, unless you don't
loose any fluid

You bleed them there okey for 3 days,why,that is the key,
then what?

I tried to vacuum bleed the clutch slave cylinder on my 1982 Honda VF 750s. I was unable to do so. I removed the cylinder, filled it with brake fluid, reinstalled it, and tried again. Still nothing!...


Usually if you just loosen the banjo bolt and pump the lever a couple of times till a gush of DOT 3/4 brake fluid starts to leak past the threads. Now you should be able to tighten the banjo bolt and bleed out the system. Lay some plastic and rags under the master cylinder so you do not damage the paint or plastic with DOT 3/4 brake fluid.

Brake problem with Acura RL 3.5 mAASSTER CYLINDER


temp does not matter. when changing out brake components like master cylinder you need to bleed the brakes from air in the lines. you do this by having a freind pump brakes 5-7 times holding foot on brake last stroke then you open the bleeder screw on the calipers and close them. air and fluid will come out, bleed each caliper 2-3times.

Replaced the brake booster how do you adjust for


Possibly the Proportioning valve. its where the lines go after the master. it has a bleeder screw of some sort on it. The pins inside wear out and stick causing uneven pressure. Replace or rebuild it if that be the case. Also chect the master for fluid leaks at the end of the piston where it connects to the booster push rod. If its leaking rebuild or replace it.
