Question No brakes

After installing new pads and rotors on front of 1991 Chevy K1500, The rear brakes are no longer working. I noticed the brake fluid in the reservoir looked foamy after depressing the plungers on the calipers. Do I JUST NEED TO BLEED THE AIR FR
OM THE SYSTEM OR SHOULD i LOOK FOR OTHER PROBLEMS?

Thanks,

Joe

question

Did the caliper piston pop out when you replaced them? Let it sit awhile then bleed brakes and see if that works.If not you have other problems.Do not drive till fixed.

Somehow you introduced air into the brake system...which usually does not occur from just replacing pads and rotors.

At this point you need to completely bleed the entire brake system starting at the right rear, then left rear, then right front and finally left front. Bleed at each point until no air comes out. Make sure you check fluid level after bleeding at each wheel.
