caddie van brake system getting air into nearside back brake but not leeking brake fluid any ideas?

Answer:

if it has a vaccume booster pull of the hose to it if its wet get a new master cyl
If you have ABS, the control valve in the pump ran dry at some point. What you need to do is open the master cylinder and top off the fluid. Then with someone keeping the fluid full, slowly depress the brake pedal, have the other person open the bleeder to let the air out of the wheel in question. Repeat this process until there is a steady flow of brake fluid, making sure the master cylinder does not run empty.
not sure what a caddie van is but sometimes air will come through the seals in the rear brake cylinders when you let off the brake pedal. I had a chevy pu do that some time back. We replaced the wheel cylinders and that fixed the problem. If you dont have rear shoe type brakes then this wont help.
you can use or install a saddle valve under your sink on the cold water side, then run your 1/4 plastic tubing from the valve to under sink to the solenoid valve at the bottom of the frig. this is the easyist way and you dont have to shut off any water to do so. Another way is to replace the cold water shut off under the sink with a duel outlet shut off valve. One side connects to your cold water for the sink and the other connects to your ice maker water line. You will have to shut offf the water to your house to do this though. Hope this helps
