Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

Changed the master cylinder on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring coupe, bled the lines as per the specs right rear left front and so on. The pressure will build however after 3-5seconds there is a loss of pressure. The master cylinder was bench bled and I have put a quart of fluid through the lines.

SOURCE: front brakes are not releasing

okay did you pressure test your brakes??? jack up front have some one press pedal try to turn wheel then when pedal is released tire should turn if not wait 1-2 minutes then try to turn the wheel with no body pressing the pedal and if it does turn then I would be replacing flex hose!!! fact: if caliper is seized it will not turn !these flex hoses build rust under the steel fastener bracket that is moulded around the hose then slowly over times closes it off as rust builds and slowly closes it off to a pin hole passage i have changed thousands of these over the years! yours will probably be the same! brake fluid has no problem making it to the caliper and bleeder it is when you release the brake the applied pressure is gone and now it take a couple of minute or seconds to slowly return!!!!! I know this will help!!!!

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

Sounds like a short in the wiring or fuse panel. As new as it is, I would suggest a mechanic as troubleshooting wiring in newer cars is not only difficult, but also dangerous. Many a shade-tree mechanic has set off the airbags that way!

90's Honda civic no pressure in the brakes replaced the master cylinder bled the lines still no pressure. What am I missing? Please


AFTER BLEEDING THE MASTER CYLINDER ON THE BENCH, DID YOU BLEED IT IN THE CAR, IF NOT, OPEN THE LINE AT THE MASTER 3/4 TURN OFF, HAVE SOMEONE STEM ON THE BRAKES, DO IT SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL YOU SEE FLUID ON BOTH LINE NO AIR COMES OUT, THEN WITH THE KEY ON START FROM THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL , SOMEONE PUMPS AND HOLDS THE BRAKES AND YOU OPEN THE BLEEDER 3/4 TURN, THEN LEFT REAR , THEN RIGHT FRONT AND LAST LEFT FRONT, IF NO PRESSURE AFTER OPENING 4 OR 5 TIMES, OPEN THE SYSTEM BY THE BRAKE HOSE, BEFORE THE CALIPER, IF PRESURE THERE REPLACE THE HOSES. 14 YR OLD HOSES MAY BE INTERNALLY CRACKED. NOT ALLOWING FLUID TO GO THRU.

How do I bleed brakes on a dodge stratus 1998


  • PRESSURE BLEEDING
  • MANUAL BLEEDING
  • Print
    For vehicles equipped with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), please refer to the ABS bleeding procedure at the end of this section.
    The purpose of bleeding the brakes is to expel air trapped in the hydraulic system. The system must be bled whenever the pedal feels spongy, indicating that compressible air has entered the system. It must also be bled whenever the system has been opened or repaired. If you are not using a pressure bleeder, you will need a helper for this job.

    WARNING Never reuse brake fluid which has been bled from the brake system.


    MASTER CYLINDER

    See Figure 1
    If the master cylinder is off the vehicle, it can be bench bled.

    1. Secure the master cylinder in a bench vise.
    2. Connect 2 short pieces of brake line to the outlet fittings, bend them until the free end is below the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoirs.
    3. Fill the reservoir with fresh DOT 3 type brake fluid.
    4. Using a wooden dowel, or equivalent, pump the piston slowly several times until no more air bubbles appear in the reservoirs.



    0900c15280089cdc.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

    Fig. Fig. 1: Attach bleeding tubes to the master cylinder and position them as shown

    1. Disconnect the 2 short lines, refill the master cylinder and securely install the cylinder cap.
    2. If the master cylinder is on the vehicle, it can still be bled, using a flare nut wrench.
    3. Open the brake lines slightly with the flare nut wrench, while pressure is applied to the brake pedal by a helper inside the vehicle.
    4. Be sure to tighten the line before the brake pedal is released.
    5. Repeat the process with both lines until no air bubbles come out.
    6. Bleed the complete brake system, if necessary.

    If the master cylinder has been thoroughly bled and filled to the proper level upon installation into the vehicle, it is not necessary to bleed the entire hydraulic system.


    PRESSURE BLEEDING

    When bleeding the brakes, air may be trapped in the brake lines or valves far upstream, as much as 10 feet from the bleeder screw. Therefore, it is very important to have a fast flow of a large volume of brake fluid when bleeding the brakes, to make sure all of the air is expelled from the system.
    On Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze models, the following wheel sequence should be used to ensure that all the air is removed from the system:


    Left rear wheel Right front wheel Right rear wheel Left front wheel
    On Sebring coupe and Avenger models, the following wheel sequence should be used to ensure that all the air is removed from the system:


    Right rear wheel Left front wheel Left rear wheel Right front wheel

    1. You should use bleeder tank tool C-3496-B or equivalent, with the required adapter for the master cylinder reservoir to pressurize the hydraulic system for bleeding. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's directions for using a pressure bleeder.
    2. Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeder screw located at the right rear wheel, then place the hose into a clean jar that has enough fresh brake fluid to submerge the end of the hose.
    3. Open the bleeder screw at least one full turn or more to get a steady stream of fluid.
    4. After about 4-8 oz. of fluid has been bled through the brake system and an air-free flow is maintained in the hose and jar, close the bleeder screw.
    5. Repeat the procedure at all the other remaining bleeder screws. Then, check the pedal for travel. If pedal travel is excessive or has not improved, enough fluid has not passed through the system to expel all of the trapped air. Be sure to monitor the fluid level in the pressure bleeder. It must stay at the proper level so air will not be allowed to re-enter the brake system through the master cylinder reservoir.
    6. Once the bleeding procedure is complete, remove the pressure bleeding equipment from the master cylinder.


    MANUAL BLEEDING

    See Figure 2
    Proper manual bleeding of the hydraulic brake system will require the use of an assistant.
    On Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze models, the following wheel sequence should be used to ensure that all the air is removed from the system:


    Left rear wheel Right front wheel Right rear wheel Left front wheel
    On Sebring coupe and Avenger models, the following wheel sequence should be used to ensure that all the air is removed from the system:


    Right rear wheel Left front wheel Left rear wheel Right front wheel

    Fig. Fig. 2: With a clear plastic hose in a container of clean brake fluid, open the bleeder screw at least one full turn

    1. Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeder screw located at the right rear wheel, then place the hose into a clean jar that has enough fresh brake fluid to submerge the end of the hose.
    2. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal 3-4 times, and hold it down before the bleeder screw is opened.
    3. Open the bleeder screw at least one full turn. When the bleeder screw opens, the brake pedal will drop.
    4. Close the bleeder screw. Release the brake pedal only AFTER the bleeder screw is closed.
    5. Repeat the procedure 4 or 5 times at each bleeder screw, then check the pedal for travel. If the pedal travel is not excessive, or has not been improved, enough fluid has not passed through the system to expel all of the trapped air. Make sure to watch the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. It must stay at the proper level so air will not re-enter the brake system.
    6. Test drive the vehicle to be sure the brakes are operating correctly and that the pedal is solid.

    My brake lite came on..i changed rear pads and cylinders...bled lines ten times.. still have barely any pedal...no leaks tho..why cant i get a fulll pedal...


    What about the front pads/calipers...also check the master cylinder..the master cylinder is the unit that the brake pedal connects to and it can have bad seals inside where the fluid is blowing by the seals and not building pressure

    I have changed the rear rotors and brake pads, bled the brakes after putting itall back together. Seemed to have brakes but then shortly thereafter they are like a sponge. Last time I tried bleeding them...


    Hi, bleeding your rear brakes with engine running, you should get enough pressure out of the lines to squirt 3-4 feet. In other words, good pressure. If all you get is a trickle, you probably have a bad master cylinder. Just because its full of fluid, does not mean the seals arent shot. If you have bled them in order, left rear,right rear,left front,right fornt and have bled them enough to get fresh fluid out of each one without achieving good solid pressure at all wheels, replace your master cylinder. There is a proportioning valve, but usually it will affect only one wheel when going out, usually the left rear.
    Brake pedal height comes from the rear brakes, so if you have bad pressure there, you will never get a good pedal. Eventually with a bad master, your brakes will go completly out..Mike

    92 regency with abs...rear brake line broke, replaced line and bled line.. no pedal. i bled all the lines, bench bled the master cyl and the abs manifold and still have nothing unless i pump the brakes 3...


    Brother, it's just the fact that there is STILL air in your system. Just fill the master cylinder, open the left front line and let it run into a bottle to catch it for a bit until you know for sure all air is gone from that line. Then do the same with the right front. Then the left rear, then right rear. This is gravity bleeding, no pumping required. It's the only way to know for sure that each wheel cylinder and line is free of air. Only let the master cylinder drain down about half way each time the tighten each bleeder. Refill with the drained fluid. Be patient my friend, it takes time to do it right, but it works for me every time. Good day.

    Brake pedal goes to floor.......pads, rotors and calibers are new, lines have been bled.


    Sounds like it is not completely bled. I would bench bleed the master cylinder first and then bleed to whole system again. The calipers take quite a bit of fluid and it sounds like you may have ingested air during the bleeding process. Start from the left rear and then right rear, then right front and then left front. Make sure you keep the master cylinder full during bleeding because it can **** air if low and you will not notice. It takes a while to do it correctly unless you have a pressure bleeder.
