Changed rotors, brakes are squishy, help!
Hi Guys, haven't posted here in years.
So after finishing school, starting career, moving etc, I neglected my poor TC for a good number of years. Sitting at 142k miles, decided to put on new rotors/pads, and change all of my fluids and give the car some love.
A couple days ago I changed the rotors/pads and noticed my brakes were very soft and squishy. I bled the lines, brakes still squishy.
All the bleeder valves release nothing but brake fluid, no air bubbles, EXCEPT the front driver side valve. This sends a solid stream of brake fluid for a few seconds, followed by a lot of air bubbles, followed by just pure air, then a sloshy mix of air/brake fluid, followed by clean solid brake fluid and then the whole process repeats itself.
Last two days I had run through about 4 qts of brake fluid trying to bleed this through. I have no idea what could be the issue?
My thought is that I have air pockets in the master cylinder.
I made sure to always keep the master cylinder topped off, and I bled the lines using a half full bottle with a clear tube connected from the bleeder valve into the bottle to not allow air back in.
Any idea guys? I don't see any cracks or leaks in my brake lines or the caliper. This issue is driving me crazy, especially since FR,RR, and RL lines are pushing solid brake fluid with no air.
