The master cylinder MUST be bleed first before any bleeding at the wheels can occur. if you do not do this, you will be bleeding for hours.
The Slave Cylinder and the Master Cylinder control totally different systems. The Slave has to do with the clutch, and the Master has to do with the brakes. They have nothing in common.
underneath the master cylinder for the brakes in the engine bay.
Rebleed the system making sure to watch the level of the fluid in the master cylinder
If the brakes were working before bleeding and now are worse, then is possible all of the air is not out of the system. Check the wheel cylinders and master cylinder for leaks, and re check any parts just replaced. It is possible that the last repair done to the system caused the problem.
Not really an answer, but another question... did you bleed the brakes after you changed them? I remember that is a critical step, NOT to be missed when working on the brakes. Hope this helps.
Bleed em again. Then replace the brake lines. Which would involve more bleeding.
if all lines are clear,try bleeding master cylinder directly,or you may have a collapsed brake hose on side that will not bleed also check routing of pipes for any kinks.
Bleed the furthest from the master cylinder 1st then the rest in order of distance from the master cylinder.
Bleed the master cylinder.& then rebleed the system.
Bleed the brakes starting at the wheel farthest away from of the master cylinder and work towards the closest.
The brakes will have either:Another problemNeed to be properly bled.The additional component is probably the anti lock brake servo. This component requires a special bleeding procedure.
You start again -sorry, no option if you want to do it properly.
Get a manual on your car from the parts store for about $18 and it will help on the next repair. The Saturn Ls1 that I own I have replaced the brakes twice and each time I am forced to buy the brakes frome Saturn although this car is 5 years old the parts for this 2000 Saturn LS1 are not allowed to be sold on the open market.
I would suspect the Master Cylinder if defective. I had the same problem with my 1978. I replaced the combination valve and it solved the problem after bleeding.
for 85 oldsmobile toronado what is the bleeding sequence on the brakes
You need to "bleed" the brakes at each wheel. R
check to make sure no leaks anywhere. did you start bleeding from the furthest wheel from master cylinder too the closest.also check to see if rear brakes are adjusted correctly just click adjuster wheel till slight drag occurs if you have rear drum brakes that is.if all this is done master cylinder my be bad.
This happened to our 2003 Vue. I had just had the brakes replaced and they had not done this properly, something to do with the 'calipers', so the car sounded like a bucket of bolts everytime I put on the brakes. Have them look at the rear brakes especially if you've just had them replaced.
Check for leaks under vehicle. You may have blown a hole through a rusty brake line.
With any vehicle, start with the wheel furthest from yhe master cylinder, and work closer.
Last time I replaced a master cylinder I got a kit with it. before you hook up the brake lines you screw in 2 zerts connect plastic tubing to them and run them into the fluid reseviors then pump the brakes until no bubbles come through the plastic lines
If the rear wheel brakes are locking up on a vehicle they should be thoroughly checked. The master cylinder may need to be replaced on the car.
How much does it cost to get new brakes and new tires on a saturn??
Check out the related video on how to change the rear brakes on a Saturn.
Check all of the wheel cylinders for any leaks. Check all of the lines for any kinks, then check the master cylinder again for any air. Air in the system may have gotten into the master cylinder and the cylinder may need bleeding again.
