I have a 94 Ford Explorer. I just put on new rotors, calipers and brake pads on the front. I pumped up my brake and it is hard with the key out. I pumped with the key in on position and loosened my rear brake lines to get any air out and at the same time kept adding brake fluid. So when I actually started it I still have hardly any brake pressure. I drove it around a little and I do have some brakes but the pedal is to the floor. What am I doing wrong? What is the correct procedure to get all the air out of the brake lines and have some powerful brakes? Thanks to all! Mike
