Customer Question
I replaced the calipers...

I replaced the calipers rotors and brake shoes on my 2006 f-150. I have bled the brakes to the tune of four quarts and I still have no brake pedal!

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

112,000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried bleeding the brakes with my buddy starting with the right rear.

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

All new parts, power stop.

Good afternoon,

After bleeding the brakes manually were you able to perform and ABS bleed with a scan tool?

no

It can be a major pain to get the pedal back without performing an ABS bleed on these trucks. Sometimes you can use a pressure bleeder and get it to stiffen up like normal, but it's very difficult.

Did the truck have a decent pedal before replacing the calipers?

Do you have a pair of pinch off pliers? Needle nose vice grips will work too.

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.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
