No Maintenance kills

I swear, if there was a single more lazy not done to this lincoln I'm driving, I'd be catatonic.

I change the pads and rotors, because..well, let's say the car decided it was time about 3 years ago.

I get all done, pat myself on the back and drive it home--Passenger side that was completely painless, was all but that.

$80 later, it's too dark to put on the caliper and brake hose, to boot my place of employment didn't have it and <Sarcasm> I had to go to 'The Zone' which are known for their quality parts</Sarcasm>

If this doesn't fix it, I'm going to unhook the front calipers and tell everyone that they're not borrowing my car ever again.

Much thanks.

I got it cleared up, though I'm still a bit miffed, I have still a roughly $500-some set of repairs I have to do due to the air-ride bags up front rotting out.

I've still gotta find a service manual/service CD somewhere, Haynes does not make one for '95 lincoln continentals

On the upside, everything's running Okay now, though I feel I have a bad brake booster/leak in the brake booster system as when I bled the brakes the engine would stumble when the pedal was pumped.

Look for a rotted vacuum hose in engine compartment.... doesn't HAVE to be part of the brake system....just a big leak somewhere. The car is 16-17 years old and so are all the rubber hoses......look first near exhaust manifolds for hard/cracked hoses.

the check valve that goes into the booster can is bad.
