    I have a 1993 ford explorer 4wd, 4 wheel ABS. I had a rear brake line burst the other day. I limped home with very little brakes. The master cylinder was completely drained. I have repaired the brake lines. Replaced both wheel cylinders, and the master cylinder. I can't seem to get any braking power. The pedal is soft even though I have good pressure and flow at the breeders am I missing something. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Once air has entered the ABS system it can be difficult to bleed it out and may require special procedures. You need the exact procedure for your model I think.

    Agree with you OP here. This might be the problem.

    The older model "Exploders". My brother had one of the 1997 models and it basically fell apart at 125k miles. He couldn't even get the door to open by the time it was done. He had to go in through the window Dukes of Hazard style.
