no brakes neep help asap

I got new calipers for my jeep replaced then and ever since then no brakes thought it was the master cylinder so changed that bench bleed it and bled it for hours and also gravity bled it and I still have no brake. What could be wrong?

Make sure the bleeder on the calipers are on the top.
Were you having problems with the brakes before you replaced the calipers?

With the engine off, pump the brakes several times to clear out the vacuum. If you have good pedal then, there may be an issue with your booster.

This x2. I did this once, felt pretty stupid, but it was a good lesson. After three litres of brake fluid and a day of bleeding, jeepforum came through and helped me with that. Make sure they are on top.

This is your problem. It's a very common thread on here, I did the same thing when I changed my calipers years ago.

Yup, it's funny now lol. But a real pain I'm the back end when working on it. Would it kill them to put an R on one and an L on the other.

...[/QUOTE]

Though if those calipers are used on another vehicle and are front facing instead of rear facing, R & L would be opposite.

I guess the basic rule of thumb: bleed hole ALWAYS on top.

Good point, but if it's not a jeep then they are doing it wrong. Lol
