2000 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 82000 miles
I have just changed both sets of rotors, pads, and calipers on my truck. I changed the drivers side one day and the passenger the next. The problem started after I changed the first caliper. After bleeding multiple times with good pressure, the pedal was firm, but when I start the truck the pedal is easily pushed to the floor. My rear brakes function, abs included, but no front unless I pump the pedal multiple times it will hold pressure momentarily and the front brakes will grab. I figured id change the other side and see, Well it didnt help, and now ive changed the master cylinder, bench bled, bled all 4 wheels, and still, when truck is running, no front brakes unless pumped. Is there a special trick to bleeding these ford calipers? I tried having my dad pump a few times and then crack them, I tried holding pedal and leaving bleeder open, not holding pedal with bleeder open, gravity style, and I get some air then clear fluid. Even while bleeding pressure builds after 1 or 2pumps. Not sure what else to do or look at. Booster tests ok according to book, with engine off pedal gets firmer when pushed. Really at a loss and any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
