Now i know my s-10's , i know every thing about them... now im stuck.. i
just recently put all new breaks on.. new Front pads, rotors, and LINES.
then last night i did the back,, new shoes, hardware, cylinders, and all
new LINES. this morning put in a new Master cylinder.. and bleed the
breaks about a million times.. and the f*cking pedal still goes to the
floor and the break light is on.. im suck in my 91.. help?
You obviously don't know <everything> about them or you wouldn't be here.
1. Rear shoes set too loose.
2. Small leak in one of your new brake lines. Flare fittings can be a real
bear at times.
3. Proportioning valve is FUBAR.
4. Internal leak in new master cylinder or ABS hydraulic unit if equipped
5. Master Cylinder not bench bled
My question to you is, WHEN did the pedal go all to hell on ya? Before you
started, midway thru the work, or after the last step?
get two long jawed set of vice grips, put some rubber hose over the
jaws and crimp off both sets of rear brake lines (the rubber parts of
course) to isolate the problem to either the front or back brakes.
Now try the brakes and see if the pedal is better
or just unscrew the brake lines at the master cylinder and put two finishing
nails in the end of the connector, put them back on and the will cut the
rears completely off. Just make sure to remove the nails before you drive
