After having changed the rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders, and bled them the pedal was good. Then the pedal was going to the floor slowly so I had to pump the brakes to get enough stopping power. Changed the master cylinder and tried bleeding the brakes. The bleeding order on the instructions for the new master was left front, right rear, right front, left rear. Not much fluid was coming out of the bleeders. Pedal was not firming up. After starting the engine, the pedal went to the floor onc


It sounds that you have done a pretty good job at this point. Remember that the brake adjustment will dictate the amount of brake pedal. Recheck to make sure the right brake linings were used. Recheck to make sure the brakes on the rear are adjust ... Honda Civic

I have replaced all brake parts including front brake hoses and let all the brake fluid to drain out of the master cylinder. Went to bleed the brakes and it appeared to bleed all air out of the lines etc.. Then went to take a test drive and the brake pedal went to the floor like no brake pedal pressure and no brakes at all. It's like there is no master cylinder at all. Before I performed the brake job the brakes functioned fine. Have any ideas as to why the master cylinder seems not to pump up ?

We just replaced the front brakes and calipers on our 1994 Ford Explorer. The brakes grab when the car is turned off. When the car is started you have to push the brakes all the way to the floor to brake. We bled the brake lines - hopefully correctly... the front right brake line is leaking and nothing comes out of the bleeder when we try to bleed it.


The Front Right is a problem. Maybe the hose is bad (plugged up) . You really need to not have ANY leak, and when opening the bleeder, if no fluid comes out, thats a problem. ... 1994 Ford Explorer Limited
