Buick Brake Job

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man


Hi Bob,
I have a 85 Buick Century. The rear right brake line sprang a leak and I replaced it with a new one. When I tried to bleed the line I found that I had no fluid pressure as if the line was blocked but I don't think it is blocked by debris. Is there a mechanisim that closes off the leaky line to prevent all of the fluid from leaking out and if there is how do I reset it?
Denis

Denis,
There should be a tee block that connects the two rear wheel cylinders together. First try disconnecting the line that goes to the wheel in question, if nothing, then try the main feed coming into the tee.... If nothing there, then go on up to the proportioning valve and check that out.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
