I'm not sure about this, but typically when you bleed brakes, you bleed them all at the same time. You also have to make sure the level in the fluid doesn't drop too far, otherwise you end up sucking air into the lines.Originally posted by JasonBVHS@Jun 30 2004, 08:12 PM
would it be necessary to bleed the back brakes as well? even though i only messed with the front?
Well the brake fluid wouldn't be the cause for it feeling weird just cause it was old. UNLESS.. it was saturated with moisture causing it to have a lower boiling point and you boiled the fluid with "enthusiastic driving" which then would cause that. I think most cars have it setup with one front wheel and one rear wheel diagonal from each other... so if you lose a left front brake hose or something.... you'll still have one wheel braking. That is til you run out of fluid and air is in the lines.... h34r:Originally posted by JasonBVHS@Jul 1 2004, 03:17 PM
thanks guys for the help. i thought that the front and rear were seprate from one another. thats why my brakes were for ****. i bled the back and it was full of air, now my brake pedal is back where it was before thanks. another thought would the fact that it was old brake fluid have any thing to do with it feeling somewhat spongy?
