It sounds like it to me there is air in the brake line and you may have to have the brake pressure bleed to get the air out call a shop close to you and take it safe unless you do have towing wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Got my tires rotated and the shop informed me that my brakes had gone bad and needed replacing. Rather than spending 900 dollars I didn't have, i opted to do the work myself. Brakes work now, but periodically they will lose resistance, though when I pump them a second time it comes back fine. Someone told me it was a bad master cylinder but I wanted at least another opinion before I spend money to replace it.

Replaced Master Cylinder and Brake Booster on 03 Bravada and pedal still drops all the way to the floor instead of stopping at half-way of pedal travel? No visible leaks in hydraulic system but it acts like it. Replaced new Master Cylinder with a second Master Cylinder just to verify that I got a good part but still had problem.

My Volvo 850 1996 had spongy brakes with the brake pedel traveling some distance before the biting point. If the brake pedel was punped you coul get a higher pedel. My local mechanic blead the brakes and that made them perfect. After a couple of weeks the brakes were just as bad as before. A new master cylinder was fitted and although the brakes are better they are not as good as they were after the bleeding on the old master cylinder. Any ideas? ****


I would first bleed the brakes again -- maybe there is still a small amount of air still in the lines. If this doesn't work and there is no visible leak, I would have to suspect the master cylinder is "leaking by" internally. A new one shouldn't be ... 1994 Volvo 850

My brake pedal sinks all the way down and won't come to a complete stop unless I pump the breaks. When I'm stopped at a light the brake pedal is fine at first but it will slowly sink down again. I'll pump the brakes a couple of times and then its normal for a couple of minutes. What's wrong with my brakes?


When the brake pedal drifts down, it means your master cylinder is going bad. You should replace the master cylinder ASAP because it can go all the way out and you can loose your brakes. Normally this isnt a very expensive repair. Rebuilt master cyli ... 1993 Honda Prelude

We've just had a big rain storm and I was out getting errands done when all of a sudden it was as if my power brakes were'nt working. It was very hard to push the brake pedal down, although I still had brakes, also the car started to run rough and it eventually died. After a few minutes I got it restarted and it made it alittle bit further and died again but this time it would not restart. The car has been running fine up until now. The only thing I can figure is something got wet, I did go thro

I have a 1990 reatta convert and it seems to be leaking in a couple different spots inside the front driverside tire. It is not oil nor antifreeze. I got to believe it might be brake fluid. The car only has 16,500 miles and was owned by a buick dealer in California. When I got it the brake light was on but after filling the brake reservoir the light went out but with just a few drops the light has not come back on. Any thoughts.


Although if you suspect a problem with the wheel cylinder, it would be wise to have it checked but shock absorbers are filled with either gas or hydraulic fluid which bares a close resemblance to brake fluid and shocks are more likely to fail than a ... Buick Reatta

1996 VW Passat TDI Wagon. Have replaced clutch master and slave 1.5 yrs ago along with all clutch parts, and it worked fine during this time. Clutch began to work intermittently 2 months ago. Clutch would work normally, then for no apparent reason, clutch would not be able to completely disengage and enable gears to be engaged. During this 1.5 yrs, brake fluid went down due to normal brake pad wear and seepage (no leaks), and level in the brake master got down to the middle between max and m

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before install? That is a must. Also you have to get the rod adjustment exact. That is the rod that goes from the booster to the master cylinder. Those must be done before you move on to the bleeding of the sys ... Cars & Trucks
