    so tonight when i was dropping my girlfriend off at her house i began to pull away and i heard a extended "eeerrrrrrggg" from my brakes... the kind of sound when a yolk is too tight, it lasted three or 4 seconds and went away... it seems to only happen when i am sitting on them for a period of time and let off to go forward...

    i recently had my extended brake lines installed at a shop and when they were bleeding them i noticed no on was checking my brake fluid levels, so i mentioned it and the kinda got that "oh yeah" look, and they checked and started to panic and start a whole bunch of tools under the hood, im guessing they ran the fluid all the way out :mad: now even i know thats bad.. very bad... so they hooked up this pump that force pumped (im guessing) fluid into the system and re did the bleed...

    now looking at this article... http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/05+/data/ileaf/06toyrm/06toypdf/06rmsrc/rm2006ta/04200210.pdf

    i noticed that it reqires more than just that if air gets in the master cylinder... they also did not follow the procedures to do the bleed.. my brakes dont feel soft or squishey as if there way air in the system but would air in the master cylinder cause the brakes to drag? im thinking about taking it to the stealership and have them re do the bleed as if there was air in the MC


    thoughts sugestions?

    If you do have air in your system and if a truck is anything like a motorcycle, you can try wedging a piece of wood between your brake peddle and the seat so the peddle is fully depressed and keep it that way over night.

    This may force the air to the surface and clear out your system. It can't hurt and it is worth a try.
