Two ways of doing this make sure you are using the right brake fluid The bleeder on the calper open up and pull fluid with a fluid pump Get one at auto parts store dont let the master cylinder go dry OR you can fill the calaper through the bleeder and push fluid up to the master cylinder MOPOR KENNY

1997 mercury sable gs 3.0l replaced master brake, still having brake pedal feeling spongy and slowly traveling down. i bench bled master brake and bled brake right rear left rear right then front.


If the master cylinder is replaced, care must be taken to prime the new master cylinder by removing all of the air and completely filling it with brake fluid. The spongy feeling is air that is still in the circuits. You will need to bleed the back brakes as well as the front ones again. The order that you bled them seems correct, but perhaps there remained some air in the main trunk lines.

For the best results 2 people are needed. Start at the further distance wheel cylinder and bleed at least three (3) master cylinder reservoir volumes of fluid (back brakes). Bleed the fluid with use of a piece of tubing attached to the bleed port that is long enough to reach almost to the bottom of a long neck or tall clear jar (clear drink bottle works well). When the bleeding begins, after one or two brake pedal pushes, make sure that the end of the tubing is below the surface of the fluid and keep it under. It best to have a clear bleed line (to observe air). Keep pumping the brake pedal while being careful to not completely empty the master cylinder reservoir (leave 1/4 full always). Repeat the same technique for each wheel cylinder with at least two (2) reservoirs full for front brakes. Partially close the bleed ports when almost finished (at least 5 pedal strokes without exit of any air). Completely close the ports during the down stroke of the brake pedal, with the tubing still attached. Be sure each bleed port is closed snuggly.
Most of the brake fluid can be reused, but not the darker portion at the bottom of the jar.

U forgot to bleed the BRAKE MASTER! When ur bleeding the brakes, make sure ur engine is RUNNiNG.

If everything FAiLS go to ur nearest garage and have them fix it! Drive slowly, using ur engine and hand brake! Hope that helps u out!

I had to replace the brake lines in the rear of my car. The brake peddle still goes to the floor. do I need to bled the brakes some more?


Yes, try bleeding the brakes again, you may have to bleed the front brakes too. when the master cylinder goes dry from a broken line sometime air gets into the front lines also. otherwise the master cylinder could be bad when the pedal goes past it normal travel sometime it tears the seals inside and you be unable to build pressure in the master cylinder

Can not get a pedal, replaced master cylinder twice, bled everything, no pedal...can't seem to get fluid out of the 3 front ports on the master cylinder...could both master cylinders be defective, or am I...


Did you bleed the master cylinder before you put it in the vehicle?This usually makes it easier to bleed the entire brake system if this is done before you install the master cylinder.Other wise all you have done is put air in the brake system.The master cylinder kit usually comes with a bleeder kit.This is for bench bleeding the master.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1996 PLYMOUTH VOYAGER SOFT BRAKE PEDAL AIR IN LINES


I am a hydraulic technician and I can tell you that air is a killer in the hydraulic system.

Start from the rear and work your way forward. I f you are using the two person method, make sure the second person keeps the master cylinder full. If the fluid level dropped anywhere in between pressing and releasing the brakes....you have a lot of air in the system.

Make sure you are tightening the bleed valve when the brake pedal is full pressed.

Remeber...start from the rear brakes first, then do the front.

Replced front brake pads and calipers adjusted


Bleed the master cylinder first. You have to do that before you belled any calipers or wheel cylinder.
