1987 Honda CRX Brake bleeding

Brakes problem
1987 Honda CRX 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 210000 miles

I replaced my rear shoes and hardware, adjusted the E brake, and bled my brakes. However, I forgot to leave the master cylinder cap off and while I bleeding the system I saw that I leaking fluid aourd the the booster/cylinder area. I checked all around and can't find where the fluid is coming from. So I continued to bleed the system with the cylinder cap "off" this time.

I got good pedal pressure and saw air coming out of the lines. But during the drive test I no pressure, ZERO! I have no leaks anywhere. No air coming out of lines.

Did I damage my booster and/or cylinder when I bled the system with the master cylinder cap on?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi xcorps89,

Either there is still air in the system or the master cylinder is bad. Quite often master cylinders that are weak fails when bleeding is done.

I would suggest testing the master cylinder.

Was this
