Brake system failure


I think brake proportional Valve (or Brake pressure regulator) which usually a part of Master cylinder is suspicious.
It regulates pressure to Front and Rear brake line.

If I were you, I try to draw air from Master-cylinder side (not Caliper side).
(Bleed from connector between Master-cylinder and pipe, same way as caliper. someone keep pushing brake then you lose connector then tight. Don't forget to put towel under master cylinder to catch brake fluid)
If air trapped in Proportional valve (pressure regulator), pressure won't relay to rear brake line but only front side.
Front has two separate line from master cylinder (right and left) but rear goes in one line from master cylinder then separate at rear.

Did you noticed both rear brake dragged when it's hot day ?
Because when air get hot, air expand and pushes to caliper and drag but not respond to your pedal.
(calipers don't respond when you push pedal, but it's pushes calipers by itself even you are not pushing pedal, when it's hot because air expand)
Sometimes, seal get old and lose pressure for only one side (front or rear).

if this happened after you did brake job, or you notice your brake was vapor locked (too much brake on hot day then brake fluid boiled), maybe air bleed and whole fluid change may solve.
if you didn't have any unusual activity but it gradually losing pressure to rear, I suspect master cylinder (proportional valve seal).

Sorry I don't have exact e46 master cylinder diagram but basic diagram, hope you can understand what I am talking about.
Picture shows "leak" but this case "Air" in somewhere in pink.
or lose seal on rear piston.

Losing brake fluid with no leak


It's a sealed system, so it's got to be going somewhere, leaking somewhere (or boiling off from severe braking operations over and over). Since you likely haven't experienced extreme braking, it must be leaking somewhere.
You will have to trace all your brake lines from the master cylinder to each wheel to check for any sign of leaking. Front calipers are easy to spot leaks when they leak. If you have drum brakes on the rear, you may need to pull off the drum to check the wheel brake cylinders. Peel back the rubber boot on each end of the wheel cylinder and look for any fluid leaks there.
Another place to check is at the back of the master cylinder. If a seal is bad there, it has been known to leak fluid inside the car, under the dash. Feel around the carpet under and behind the brake pedal for any wetness. If you find brake fluid there, you will need the master cylinder replaced or rebuilt.
Hope you find the problem. Don't forget to check the ABS system and brake lines, too.

I have a 1998 cavalier. My back wheel on drivers side was locking up so had a wheel cylinder replace and a brake line by just someone, then that didn''t help so I took it to all stars and they did...


its possible that the seals in the wheel cylinder were damaged from the previous problem when it didn`t fix the problem.was the replaced seal a new one or a used one that the someone installed or the seals were defective from the manufacture.also were the brakes shoes cleaned of the brake fluid that was on them from the original cylinder leaking on them as this can cause the brakes to lock up,as well as if the brakes are not adjusted properly can cause this as they will catch and turn with the drum until it can`t rotate any more causing the brakes to lock up.as far as the hardware missing then the person that replaced the wheel cylinder didn`t replace everything that they took off or didn`t know what was suppose to be there as far as parts.

My 1998 ford windstar abs brake light is on. In the past I had to add brake fluid and in doing so the light went out. I tried that but it continues to burn. Can it be reset?


thats odd. Adding brake fluid shouldn't have kicked on the ABS light..

Low brake fluid would cause your RED parking brake light to come on not the orange ABS light (unless thats what you mean. if thats the case its normal for that light to come on with low fluid. in this case check the brake lines starting to the master cylinder and the components at the wheels to make sure there is no leaks if you go HERE complained about your situation and also noticed a leak on the bottom of the master cylinder (hazardous in more than 1 way) )

not sure of the component locations under the hood of the windstar but check to see if you were bumping wires on the ABS control module when you were putting brake fluid in. may be a loose connection that jiggles loose when you drive.

otherwise it might need a new ABS control module or maybe moisture in one of the components.

E break light is on and break locked up


try this. loosen the two brake lines at the master cylinder so some fluid can excape, if the brakes are now freed up you have a bad master cylinder. look for a swollen rubber seal on the master cyl.cap also. this indicates some wrong type of fluid has been added causing the problem. good luck.
