NEW BRAKE LINES. PROBLEM WITH BRAND NEW CALIPER GRABBING

1993 Saturn SL2 • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 130,000 miles

Slammed on the brakes to avoid a deer, brake pedal went down to the floor and I ruptured a rear brake line. Replaced the entire line from the resevor to both rear calipers, checked for leaks over 4 times. And the passenger side which has a brand new caliper does not grab. And the pedal still goes down abnormally far for a brand new brake system. Bled all the lines 3 times, even bled the master. Any ideas?

The coolant temp sensor was recently replaced if memory serves me right. And no I have not had a chance to disconnect the battery quite yet. At least the car isnt dying at each stop sign now.

Still no chance to disconnect the battery, but idles down between 1200 and 1500 while rolling to a stop. Seems normal to me.

That sounds good just as long as when your stopped its not idling down for like 3 seconds.
