    Make sure the plunger fully compresses and decompresses, It may just not be releasing enough on the release therefore the plunger isn't coming back far enough to take in more fluid. This can be adjusted where the master cylinder attaches to the pedal.

    You changed out the master as well. You have to bleed the master as well. Loosen the lines that run into the master, start pumping the brake pedal. When brake fluid sprays out of both lines, tighten them back up. Then start bleeding your brakes. Start bleeding from the furthest corner. RR,LR,RF then left front. A little trick. Crack both rears open and wait five minutes or so for brake fluid to seep out, making sure the caps are off the master and the fluid does not run out. Then close the LR, and start bleeding. Hope this helps. You changed out the master as well. You have to bleed the master as well. Loosen the lines that run into the master, start pumping the brake pedal.

    The OBD port is below the drivers' area sprint, only seem under there and this is stickin accessible. it may well be enormously obvious. The dummy mild many times video show gadgets emissions stuff, so this is probable no longer something important, in spite of the indisputable fact that it additionally video show gadgets specific sensors the engine makes use of to run. In different words, it ought to be no longer something, or it ought to be a actual concern. only thank you to appreciate is to diagnose it, and pulling codes is only area of that. Does it run? if so, is it working any in yet in any different case, and if so, in what way? do no longer overlook there is extra to an engine than the computing gadget, the engines in those issues certainly predate computerization.

    keep bleeding them. you probably still have air in the lines. bleed 1 side then the other until all you see is fluid coming out.
