NISSAN HARDBODY BRAKES PROBLEM

1995 Nissan Hardbody • 200,000 miles

New master cyl. Calipers, and rear cyl. Bench bled master cyl. And all 4 wheels; no air. Now, must pump brakes to build pressure then once released wait 2 seconds and the pedal goes back to the floor. If I pump the brakes up, the pedal will hold pressure and not sink to the floor unless released, once released it goes straight back to the floor and you have to pump again. Any ideas?

Sounds like you still have air somewhere. In some condition, you have to have it pressure bled to rid of air.

Try opening the bleeders and see if they gravity out the air. Let them open for about 15 minutes and watch fluid level

We have opened all bleeders and applied quick pressure to pedal and get a good solid stream out of all wheels. We have run 3 qts of fluid thru it bleeding the system. There is some sort of abs module on the frame rail passenger side as well as the load proportion cyl. Above the rear diff. Bled both of these as well and no change. As I said the pedal will hold pressure if held down after pumping but loses pressure almost instantly once you let it up. Don't think there could be any air in the lines. Anything else?

Try blocking off each wheel with plastic pliers on the brake hoses. Do all of them and see how the pedal is. If it is good, then release one at a time and when the pedal falls, thats where the problem is.

If the pedal is still bad with all blocked off, bad master cylinder
