Changed the rear end of 1989 Suburban (4 wheel drive). Put on new brake lines for the rear brakes. The brake pedal is hard. There is no brake fluid going to the rear brakes and the front brakes seem to build up pressure - I assume that is what is causing the brake pedal to be hard. When open the front bleeders the pedal drops to the floor. There is a part on the frame of the truck where two brake line intake holes and two lines that go out. The one that goes out to the rear brakes does not
It has to be your proportioning valve, and it is probably jammed and blocking flow to the rear. You can either replace the valve or try to reset it. To reset, you need a way to put pressure into the rear brake exit port. If the valve has bleeder ... 1989 Chevrolet Suburban

Brakes (rear) Previous owner (1 month ago) changed the left rear brake cylinder. Pedal felt spongy when I bought the truck, so I bled the right rear, then the left rear brake cylinders. I'm 99.99% positive that I had no air left in those cylinders, and the master cylinder was kept topped-off the whole time. However, now the BRAKE light comes on whenever I press the brake pedal. What did I do wrong, or is there something else I should look at?

No fluid to rear brakes on a 1992 Lincoln Continental. Rear brakes stopped working. Pulled rear wheels and found surface rust on disks. Raised car, spun tire and push brake pedal found no friction scenerio at the wheel. Tried to bleed rear calipers, found dry brake lines, no fluid from bleeder valve at all. I checked master cylinder fluid level, found to be full. Guess I need to try to find a proportioning valve. Maybe I'll try to check the lines from the master cylinder. Any suggestions would
Check at the proportioning valve--some have a pin that sticks out from the side, when bleeding the brakes try to push that pin back in. But first check to see why this happened--fluid leak to rear wheels, brake hoses cracked and air getting into the ... 1992 Lincoln Continental
2007 uplander rear brake repair - what type of brake pads came as original equipment? Ceramic or semi-metalic? The dealer service states that the original were semi-metalic. I've replaced the front pads twice and replace the front rotors once. Does anyone have any photos of the stages of rear brake pad replacement? An inspection at the dealer resulted in their suggesting replacement of both the rear brake pads and rotors. Where may rear jack stands be placed in order to service the
Pads last about 20k, rotors about 40,for the fronts and about 30/50 for the rears,they are all semi metallic.if you look under the car you will see the places for the jack(not to be used when working on the car OTHER than replacing a tyre.)for all ma ... 2007 Chevrolet Uplander LT Minivan
I have a busted rear brake line on my 97 Malibu(V6). Stranded outside city limits. In order to ger into town I need to disconnect rear line at the master cyclinder. Is it the front line for the front brakes and the rear one for rear brakes or the other way around? Please help. I only have 1 small bottle of brake fliud and am just a few clicks from a service station.
Disconnecting the line won't stop the fluid from leaking out. Your best bet would be to use a pair of Vise-Grips and pinch the line off where it is broken. You'll probably have to pinch it a couple of times to get it to stop leaking or only seep a li ... 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
Brake lights go out when head lights are on. During day brake lights work fine. At night when driving with lights on, applying the brakes turns off the rear tail lights. The center brake light in the rear window is not affected. When you take foot off brakes rear tail lights come back on.
What most likely you have on the rear lights is a bad ground between the lights and the frame /chassis. If the lights are on a tailgate /hatch then the wire is probably broken in the space between the 2 units where it moves a lot. Try running a temp ... 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
My rear brake lights do not work, however the trailer brake lights work, the over cab brake light works, and the rear blinkers, which are the same bulb as the brake light work. I have checked all fuses, brake light switch and rear harnes connection??????????????????????
Well it could be a frayed wire or a bad ground wire from what you have already checked. You should see if you get voltage at the fuse when you press the brake with the car on and running of course. If you don't then you know that the problem lies bef ... Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have a 1996 Chrysler Town & Country. The front brake pads were replaced about 3 months ago, the rear pads were replaced about three weeks ago. The brake lines or cylinders were not touched. I experienced a total loss of braking about two weeks after the rears were replaced. Took the van to Big O. They replaced the rear cylinders and completely flushed the brake fluid. The van now has a hard pedal the first time you press it, then goes to the floor if you release the brake and press it agai
All this is because the brake lines have not been 'bled' properly. That's why when you pump the brakes, it changes how they feel. Air in the line does that. Have them bled again. ... Chrysler Town & Country

I have a 91 s10 2wd 5spd with a 2.5 4cyl... i bought the truck with the brakes not working, it had a bad rear brakeline that was cracked right in front of the rear driver tire. and since this truck is going be a lowrider/mini truck, i want the least amount of things near the rear axle as possible because im going to eventualy do a 4link... so i tried to cap off the rear brakes completely by putting a bolt in the master cylinder where the line to the rear brakes was supposed to be. While checking
The master cyclinder is divided into diagonal wheels. meaning that each line from the master cyclinder provides fluid to a front wheel and rear wheel. on the front resevoir of the master cyclinder it would be perhaps the left front and right rear b ... 1991 Chevrolet S-10
Hi i have a 1995 cheverolet silverado 1500. For years i've had the problem of a really soft brake pedal that goes all the way to the floor before it brakes.

We then went on to replace the brake master cylinder and the brake booster but it still has the same problem even with numerous number of attempts to bleed the brake lines.

1990 Buick Century custom, 3.3 V6, 4 door automatic. I have replaced the linings, wheel cylinders, both rear drums on this vehicle. When the linings are tight to the drum the brakes seem to operate correctly. I have often experienced a "locking up" of the right rear brake. It seems as if the brake shoes become loose (out of adjustment).I have used the parking brake to try and "self adjust the rear linings as it is my understanding that this is how they work.Since I purchased the vehicle used I e
