1995 Nissan pickup brakes

Front brake calipers were sticking, changed calipers, bled brakes and now when the truck is idling you can pump the brakes and have brakes. But as soon as you give the truck gas, the brakes go to the floor. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

It would appear that there is still air in the lines.

I agree, I assume you didn't bleed the brakes

Even tho you just did the front you mat also have to bleed rear. If you are alone gravity bleed works well but you have to keep filling master cylinder. Don't let it run dry. After all air comes out close bleed screws and pump brakes you will get the last air bubble out.
