Customer Question
I replaced both front...

I replaced both front calipers and rotors. Now, after bleeding I have no pedal. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the brakes? How many miles on the car?

Ford escape 2008, 124,000 miles. Pads were 1/2 used but I have front end vibration when braking. I assumed warped rotor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. by myself. I replaced both rotors and calipers. I had my daughter help me bleed the brakes. Front right first, then front left.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I do not think so.

Did you gravity bleed the brakes before bleeding them normally?

Did you bleed the rear brakes at all when doing this?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

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.

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.
