If they just went around and bleed the wheels, that is not the right way and won't get the air out.
They need to bleed the wheels in this order!!!
I would think they would know how to do this, but I can have them bleed the system again. At this point, all service through them is free until the issue is fixed. Any other suggestions it could be? You think the vacuum chamber/booster is probably okay?
To be honest..
Most repair shops don't know that they need to bleed Nissan Wheels in this order if equip with ABS
Rule of thumb is normally bleed rear brakes, and then front. There normally isn't a order. But with the ABS system cause of the valves in the ABS unit, they have to be bleed in this order.
Ok, I will have them re-bleed and see if this works.
You got it. Make sure you print that image I gave you and give it to them to perform the bleeding steps that exact way!!!

Excellent. Will do!
Was wondering...if there is an air bubble in the system, wouldn't it affect the brakes all the time and not just when the truck has been sitting overnight?
Got it. Will let you know. Thanks.
