This problem has been happening ever since I replaced the driver side caliper (about two months), shortly after that I bought the passenger side caliper (one month) thinking that was the problem. But no. Recently I noticed the calipers were backwards, I asked for the left side caliper and got the right side caliper. So the bleeder valve was on the bottom. Switched them around and it worked fine for a night and the next morning, I got a little cocky though and sure enough I was on the side of the highway for fifteen more minutes. So far I have wasted about an hour of my life sitting on the side of the road. Please help!
A day later after bleeding the brakes, this time it happened while I was driving, left home stopped at the end of my road, stopped at the next stop sign, drove about 20 km to Tim Horton's went through the drive threw with no problems, however 3 km down the road after leaving Tim's the wheel started shaking and it was obvious with letting off the gas and slowly stopping. I pulled into a carpool lot, shut it off and checked the cap, nothing, no trapped air so it has to be venting properly, the fluid was a little darker then when I put it in last night. Sat for twenty minutes started it up again, pedal was like a rock but they were free enough to drive back home, pulled out of the carpool got up to about 90 km and they freed up totally just after I passed Tim's again. The pedal went back its usual position, it still feels weird though and I have no ABS or CEL lights on on the dash.
have the same problem?
