Hey all I have a 98 chevy blazer 4 wheel drive. I had a caliper hang up on me last year. IT was the drivers side rear. So I replaced it and bled the system without any problem. Its been about a year and I just had the other caliper on the passengers side rear hang on up me. I know, I know, I should have done them both at the same time. But I didnt. So today I went out and replaced the other side. New caliper, rotor, and pads. Went to bleed that tire, and nothing. Just a dribble. The peddle doesnt build much pressure, and the little it does build when the bleeder valve is shut, it goes away when I turn the blazer on. So out of curiosity I jacked up the other side and tried bleeding that side. Nothing.I am stumped. I am going to jack up the front and check the fronts to see if I get any brake fluid coming out of them in the morning. If they do spit out a stream of fluid, does that indicate the proportioner valve is bad? Or could it possibly be a MC problem?
Thank you all, and before you guys fire away on me I know I should have done them at the same time.
