I have replaced the brake booster, master cylinder, and bled

Customer Question

I have replaced the brake booster, master cylinder, and bled all four Lines to each wheel. I still have zero pressure under my brake pedal
JA: Besides this, what condition is the car in?
Customer: Sorry. It's.a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 in slightly less than fair condition
JA: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am. I lost brake pressure a few days ago and wasn't losing brake fluid anywhere. Now I've replaced the booster, bench bled and replaced the master cylinder, and bled lines all around. There shouldn't be any air in the system.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: My reservoir isn't losing any fluid either, so my system is retaining fluid. Just not pressure.

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. have you tried bleeding the brakes with the engine running?

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

what engine do you have in the truck?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have not. It's a 5.9 magnum. Just for learning purposes, what difference does it make that the truck is running?
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

you get better pressure through the system since the booster will be operating therefore it pushes out any small air pockets better

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

you may have to bleed the system several more times. i have bled some vehicles 10 times before it was ok.
