How are y'all bleeding the master cylinder? Are you using hoses to recirculate the fluid back into the reservoir until there are no bubbles?

That's how I do it. Works way better than the old way. I made my own with a gatorade bottle and clear tube.

ok i do have something interesting though. when we bleed the back brakes the pedal doesnt go to the floor after there bled but they still go almost to the floor then when we bleed the front ones it goes back to the floor. i think when i get home im gonna get a pair of vise grips and a rag and stop the flow to the front calipers and if it gets hard what does that mean and what can i do to fix it.

I would think that means some of your lines are bad, but im no expert on this.

I was thinking that, too. Maybe a hose is separated on the inside or something, causing a fluid pocket, or allowing expansion.

I think you are on the right track. Process of elimination. Just be sure to clamp the hose off at the end nearest the master to eliminate the hose from the equation.

Well I feel really stupid now that I fixed the problem. Like one of y’all said switch the calipers to the other side and I didn’t but then I did it today and it worked and now I have brakes again. Sorry for not listening to the guy that said it and I’m really thankful you guys helped me

I hate those forums you go to, ask a question, and the first thing someone blurts out is to use the search function.

to be fair, sometimes there are some BASIC questions that the person could have easily searched for quicker than it took to wait for replies. Then, if they still had a problem, they may have already done some groundwork so as to effect the forum's help much more efficiently.
