I'm not getting pressure to my rear back brake for drivers side and flued looks to be a lil slushy brown.. Any suggestions. Please feel free to reply have a blessed day everyone.
Brown fluid is from rust ... it's common in cars a few years old. First .. open the bleed port and bleed all the fluid out of each wheel .... This is a PITA because the proper way to do it requires 2 people . You loosen the port screw ... push the brake all the way down but have your helper tighten the bleed port screw before you allow the brake pedal to return ...keep replacing the fluid until the fluid is clear coming out.
You need a new proportioning valve. That's the device that sends fluid..pressure to the wheels. It will have to be flushed when that's replaced anyway. The other possibility is either a pinched brake line, even the steel ones can get pinched , or a stuck shoe, bad slave cylinder. If there are no leaks its likely the proportioning valve under the master cylinder. Please get this fixed soon, it can fail and you have no brakes. To state the obvious, that's very bad
The master cylinder has two plungers, a primary and secondary. If the primary fails, the secondary will send pressure to at least two wheels, either both front or both rear, maybe , depending on how it's set up, one wheel on each side, but one front and one and rear, never both on same side
Tom's answer is good, it bleeds brakes and you can try before spending money, just might work but I really think it's the proportioning valve
Ya ... FordNut is correct .... ain't nothing worse than trying to do a Fred Flintstone by putting both feet through the floor trying st stop
