1995 Nissan Pathfinder 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
A couple of weeks ago my drivers side front tire started smoking, after parking it and letting it sit I started it up and it didnt smoke anymore everything seemed to be normal again. Today I go to put new pads on and one of the pistons on the same wheel was stuck. After beating it to death for 3 hours with no luck, I just decided to put the old brake pads back on long enough to get the new caliper I ordered and put it on. I then put the passenger side brake on in 15 minutes no problem. Im a real noob when it comes to cars, but I also cant afford to pay Midas 2 mths worth of income to do them for me lol. I should also mention I unhooked the brake line from the problem caliper hoping I would be able to get the piston to move. I get everything back together, and start it up, and start pumping the brakes. If I continuously pump them it builds a little pressure but not much, as soon as I take a break from pumping the brake I lose all resistance again, I put it in reverse to back it across the street and I have to push the pedal all the way to the floor to get it to stop whatsoever. The brake fuild is right at the minimum line. Im hoping its something simple that I just dont understand cause I only half know what Im doin, thank you in advance for any help I get!
have the same problem?
