confused No brake pressure

My Son's car and my project. My project if I don't want him using my car.

"Per my Son"

A few days ago my Son told me his brakes were starting to get bad. Bad meaning loosing pressure. Him and his buddy bled the brakes. However, the brakes got worse. *Note: this is a police version of the Crown Vic. I went out to take a look see. We bled the RR and only got a dribble out. Tried the LR and got the same thing. We bled the master cylinder and got the same thing. Keep in mind my son replaced most of the brake system about 6 months ago, that's what worries me. I was wondering what the correct procedure is for test the brake system from the master cylinder back? I'm not sure if the fact that it's a police version would have a lot to doing the test.

Thanks in advance,


Tuff

Re: No brake pressure

If you're not getting pressure at the master cylinder, that's where the problem is. When bleeding the system, master cylinder full, it's best to bleed the furthest away first. Even though the front and rear are separate. You should get a good spurt from the master fittings when the pedal is held down. Is there a high pedal?
