I have a 2009 odessey I have pressure bled the brake system

Customer Question

I have a 2009 odessey I have pressure bled the brake system and still get bubbles after closing the bleeder screw which shouldn't happen and still a sinking brake peddle. Is the air trapped in the abs unit and won't flush out?

Welcome to JustAnswer.

Pressure bleeders usually do a good job removing all of the air from the system. It's normal for some air to get past the bleeder threads and look like air is still in the system. I use silicone grease on the bleeder threads to make sure no air gets past the threads. What have you replaced or done to correct the sinking pedal? How well does it stop?

Thanks, Honda-Man

It stops fine under hard or soft braking the pedal just doesn't sit high enough like my vw that I used the same pressure bleeder on and got great results with it.

Sorry for the delay, busy evening. If you would like to speak on the phone just accept the offer and we can talk. If not please rate or accept my answer below.

If it stops OK it's probably OK. it's hard to compare different makes just because they are different. As long as it stops and the pedal does not go to the floor or fade down to the floor it's normal. If it did fade to the floor that would be a bad master cylinder. It sounds like everything is OK if you have any doubts just for safety's sake it should be looked at by a certified technician.
