There is still no fluid pressure. Make sure that the master cylinder was bled as well as the wheel cylinders. New master cylinders can be tough to bleed all of the air out. The new master could be defective.


If you didn't bench bleed the master you need to do that before you install the master.


Bleed brakes after changing pads to extract any air bobbles.


No you dont need to bleed the brakes if you are just changing the pads, there are more ansers to car maintenance questions at ; www.carbasics.co.uk


The same way you bleed brakes on a newer car, bleeder valves are in back of the wheel cylinders on the backing plate.


You need to bleed the entire brake system. Bleed in this sequence, RR, LR, RF, LF. If you do not know how to do this, do a search online for "bleeding brakes" THE REAR WHEEL CYLINDERS MAY BE LEAKING SHOULD ALWAYS CHANGE WHEN DOING BRAKES AND BLEED REAR BRAKES


On any brakes I have ever done you use the bleed valves on the back of the cylinders. open when some one gentlysteps on the brake for you.


did you replace the master cylinder if so it has to be bleed frist


You bleed the rear brakes the same way you bleed the front brakes. If you can't get brake fluid to come out the rear bleeders you may have a faulty master cylinder or the master was allowed to empty out the reservoir that feeds the rear and now it is air bound. Removing the master cylinder and bench bleeding the master may be what you need to do and don't let the reservoir go dry!


The same way you bleed the brakes on any other Dot 3 or Dot 4 brake system vehicle. at the bleeder screws on the cylinders and or calipers



you either need to bleed your brakes, add fluid or get a master cylinder darrellshandyman@live.com



YOU ONLY BLEED BRAKES WHEN YOU DISCONECT ANY BRAKE LINES OR HOSES OR IF YOU CHANGING YOUR ENTIRE FLUID. IF YOU JUST CHANGE PADS AND OR SHOES YOU DO NOT NEED TO BLEED IT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU PUSH THE PISTON BACK ON YOUR CALIPERS, THE RESERVOIR CAP MUST BE OFF TO AVOID DAMAGING ANY COMPONENTS.


to bleed brakes on all vehicles in the right order.you start furtherest wheel from the master cylander then next furtherest then 3rd furtherest then closest


The answer from Y-THINK-Y is incorrect. The 97 TJ clutch master to slave cylinders are not a conventional brake type hydraulic system. The conventional bleeding process does not work. Does anyone know how the system is purged and bled? Do I need a special pump sysytem of some sort? Basically in the same fashion that you would bleed brakes. Search the FAQ answers for the "how" to bleed brakes. Y-THINK-Y


You bleed the brakes just like you bleed any other cars brakes, there is no special way to bleed anti-lock brakes.


get a new one then bleed your brakes A new Ford master cylinder must be bench bled before it is installed, or it will be impossible to bleed the system later.


Did you bench bleed the master ? Are the calipers and wheel cylinders working properly ? Is there a break in the line somewhere ? Last , is the booster working properly ? What happens when you step on the brake now ? Are they soft and spongy ? Does the car stop at all ? More info is needed to answer this question properly.


Yes, you leave the cap off and make sure you keep the master cylinder full of fluid at all times. Bleed the brakes starting at the right rear and then moving to the LR, then RF, and ending at the LF.


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.


Get someone to help you and bleed the brakes again. You should have bench bled the master cylinder before installing. Start at the right rear, then go to the left rear, right front, and end at the left front brake. Bleed each caliber until you see no more air escaping. If you do not know how to bleed your brakes a Google search will give you instructions. If you do it right, assuming the Master Cylinder is good, you will have good brakes. I have seen rebuilt master cylinders that were defective out of the box. If you bought a rebuilt master cylinder, I would recommend you return it and get a new master cylinder. Rebuilt products today are not rebuilt in the U.S. and it is common for them to be defective. Buy new!


To bleed the brakes on a 2000 Toyota Tundra, first pump the brakes, then loosen the drain plug on the master cylinder and pump another 3 to 6 times. Tighten the plug and add brake fluid.


Bleed the furthest from the master cylinder 1st then the rest in order of distance from the master cylinder.


Steps on bleeding the brakes on a 1987 Chevy Celebrity. I am assuming that you know how to bleed brakes and merely want the order in which to bleed individual callipers or cylinders. If there is cause to believe that there is air in the master cylinder then it should be bled first. Then the individual wheels should be bled as follows: Right rear then left front. Left rear then right front. This per the factory service manual.
