how to release air on the brakes

20

Asked by Sep 21, 2012 at 12:24 PM about the 1996 Honda Passport 4 Dr LX 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The brakes were working just fine, now I'm feeling there is big gap in a paddle brake I have to step on it all the way in order to brake, and it brakes barely. I checked the brake oil which appears to be okay. Brakes were working just fine. I had my car towed in cause of another issue I had. Brakes were working before I had it towed. Now there are not. Could it be that something got messed up while being on tow truck, or their is simply air in the brakes. I appreciate any suggestions.

probably you have a leaky seal which has allowed air to enter the system, would advise you have the slave and master checked and the blead nipples on the calipers as one of those can be at fault , after when you blead the system back blead it regards john
