Check for leaks in the lines . Make sure all fittings are snug and have no moisture on them .When you changed the hose and caliper did the master cylinder loose fluid ?

You may need to bled the master cylinder if it got air in it it must be bled separately .

than you for your help , it's weird i have brakes now i let my car sit for two days and it seams the air worked it way out of the system , so thanks


Hi longm129,

If air can get out so can liquid so keep an eye on the brake fluid level in the master cylinder.
