third brake problem thread...

ive posted two threads now titled "brake problems" and "brake problems continuing." the problem is i took my calipers off to paint them and treat rust and when we put them back on and bled them, it didnt tighten up and started making a breathing noise like its sucking in air but we cant quite figure out where the noise is from. So, with that being said i posted the first thread and everyone told me to make sure i was bleeding them in the right order, which i wasnt at frist but then we started to and we've gone through the process dozens of times so then i posted the second thread and someone told me a different order, and we tried that and the problems continued.. so, i think i googled "brake problems" and "brakes for dummies" popped up, and after readng multiple situations, the page brought me to beleive that my master cylinder was bad.. and now after purchasing a new master cylinder and bleeding them both ways a billion times, she still doesnt want to work.. im verrrrrry desperate, my prelude is my daily driver and ive had to bumm rides for nearly three weeks now.. if anyone could help at all, pleease let me know. and btw i even read a thread someone posted on here on how to bleed brakes and i followed it but no result. the first order i tried was from the what you guys told me on my other two threads which was LF, RF, RR, LR. and the second was from the how-to or DIY thread i read and its was RR, LR, RF, LF (furthest from the booster, to closest) thanks for everything

Re: third brake problem thread...

Did your new master cylinder come with a cap or are you re-using the old one?


Is your brake booster hose hooked up? Does it have a hole in it?


Have you checked your banjo fittings on the calipers? sometimes the fittings can cause an issue with air in the line and require you to crack the line loose a bit while someone is pumping the brakes in order to get that little pocket of air out.
