1990 Ford Tempo 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
was done changing a wheel bearing drivers side and tried brakes and they went soft. Drove it and second third push they work good. I had taken caliper off of hose when doing wheel bearing. I did this because prior to doing wheel bearing I had replaced pads(that side only) which wore out prematurely and rotor looked like it had gotten hot!
the bleeder is broke on the caliper but I just pumped it way out and then pushed it back in figuring that was like bleeding it backwards. I've done that before and it worked. Also tried bleed from hose bolt. I also I tried bleeding opposite rear and still no change. I did open/close type bleed and fluid bottle type bleed on both rear. I hate brake problems! I dont wanna just replace parts, it was working before I tore it apart! Thanks
