Replaced my rear brakes pad and rotors (only the rear). Bled the system. Have good pedal travel until I start the engine. With the engine running they drop almost to the floor. But the brakes are right there, except for the excessive travel. Any ideas? Have bled the system at...
If Kwik Fill says 40, I can tell you that it is really 43 to 45. Always a number of points higher than what is listed on the pumps. The lab keeps it that way to keep the company from getting into trouble.

And it is okay if the...
Hope you did not get caught up in this mess from Cenex:
"Company says tainted Minot diesel being cleaned up". Should be all gone by now. Date line was Mar 5, 2009.
The Suzuki Samurai, they want the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in second. Transmission does not get enough splash in neutral. And they they still want you to stop every couple hours or so and run the engine.
