2000 Ford Explorer Q&A

2000 Ford Explorer Question: i replaced the brakes on a 2000 Ford Explorer but now i cant get them to bleed

The brakes were starting to go almost all the way to the floor, so I changed the front brakes and now I can't get them to pump back up. -
Answer 1
The problem is the master cylinder. Assuming the front is disc then your peddle pressure will remain constant with a little more travel as the rear shoes wear down. Have the master cylinder replaced. -

I checked the master cylinder and it looks like its working.... but I see the brake lines going into a black box located beside the master. It has a total of 5 lines going into it. Do ya know what its called and could it be out? -
Comment 2
That is the abs.There is a procedure to bleeding abs. You also need a non return valve if you are doing it alone. Vehicle must be running -
