Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no

is there good pressure coming out of the bleeders??

why did you replace all these parts???

ok, then you need to start at the master for the bleeding process.

back brake shoes were broke in two and brake cylinder was leaking
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
front the caliphers were shot they were stuck

ok, you will need 2 people.

have someone push the brake pedal and open the one line at the master. have them release the pedal only after you tighten the line. watch for air when doing this. continue this until all air is out. then bleed the other side of the master the same way.

then start with the right rear wheel. bleed there. then the left front. then the left rear then the right front.

we never did the master ccylinder but we did do all the rest

once you do the master, you will need to do the whole system.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
