I purchased a 1997 Dodge Neon. I put 2 new tires (they put them on the rear) new struts, tie end rods then 2 new front calipers & brake pads. Then a new master cylinder. I have no brakes. I've torn my ACL it feel like, pumping the brakes while my x husband bleeds all 4 tires, starting at the rear right. The rear right brake won't release all the way to the floor or the front driver's side, when I would pump 3 times then hold the brake peddle. I've already returned 1 new driver's side caliper, thought maybe I was sold a bad one but it's the same. 50% braking power. What can I do? My X husband is a mechanic. He has a vacuune pump for the bleeding but keeps making excuses. Should I pay a mechanic to try to fix my brakes or is it a simple fix? If I have to bleed the brakes 1 more time I think I'll scream.
But the car is getting 30-34 MPG!
