I have to bleed the left front caliper about every 3 weeks. Changed Master, Break lines, and hose. Peddle is good after bleeding, but only lasts a month at the most.
Do you
have the same problem?

You have air in the abs unit, have a pro use his scanner to open the valves and bleed it

Thank you!
I have already done that, but it seems that the abs is creating air. Have you ever heard of this?

T can take up to 3 qts to bleed a system now adays it may be the boost valve inside th abs causing the problem. I guess it could cause it but I've never realy heard of it.
