I have a 1981 Corvette and my pedal has to be pumped to get a hard pedal.The Brake Master cyl. has been changed twice in 5 days the brake fluid level remains full.The brakes have been bled 5 times and on a lift, in the air, we cannot find any leaks. Each time, after bleeding, the break pedal is niceand not soft. But after driving and using them for a couple hours the pedal continues to go soft and almost to the floor. Pumping them 3 or 4 times give me more pedal but the next time I use them it
First check each wheel brake cylinder for small leaks. If no leaks then the brakes have not been bled properly. Liquid will not compress like air, thus the reason pumping the pedal makes the brake pedal come up. If you had all of the air out of the l ... 1981 Chevrolet Corvette

Brake pedal gets soft now and then. I did a brake job on my 99 Prizm and replaced the stock brake tubing with longer non stock tubing to get by, but now the brake pedal gets real soft now and then like almost falls to the floor. It still stops the car but feeling scary when it falls and slows down the car slowy. Could it be that because of the longer tubing the brakes is not getting enough "pressure" to apply to the pads? I've bleed the entire system twice, with no luck. Also, my parking brake c
If the brakes were bled correctly the the length of pipe should not make any difference. Did you bleed them manualy or with a pressure pump? It is quite easy to get air in if manualy bled. Check the rear brakes to see why the hand brake is not workin ... 1999 Chevrolet Prizm

All of a sudden my brake pedal is very soft, and makes a short hissing noise while being depressed. The hissing seems to be coming from that diaphram area above the brake pedal. The master cylinder is full and there don't appear to be any fluid leaks. When I turn the engine off though and pump the brakes, the pedal will get firm again. It's only with the engine on that is goes soft.
Right, your booster diaphram has torn. You will have to replace the booster. Often this can be done without breaking the hydraulic system open. If you would like to do it yourself, let me know and I will send instructions. ... Ford Ranger
I have a 96 geo prizm. I have replaced the front and back brakes. I have bled the brakes and the foot pedal is firm for about the first4 days. After the 4 days the brake pedal gets really soft and you have to push it almost to the floor for the brakes to engage. I tried bleeding the brakes again and that fixed the problem, but it is now back to being soft. Do I have a problem with my master cylinder or is there something that I am missing?
It sounds like master cyl. is drawing in air causing prob. also another test would bee too bleed out and get pedal back, now step on pedal and hold firmly and see if pedal creeps near floor indicating innternal leaking in master cyl. also have some o ... 1996 Geo Prizm
I have a 2000 chevy blazer. had to short fix left rear brake line with hose and clamps. bled air from that side, brakes were soft in the pedal. checked right rear for any air had none. brakes still feel soft inthe pedal and the brake light is staying on.
Do not drive the vehicle. remove the hoze. replace it with steel line. rubber hoses are not meant for the high pressures of brake lines. it is expanding when you press the brake pedal. very unsafe. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. I had to replace the front brake pads, rotors and calipers. After bleeding the brakes I still have a soft pedal. when pressing it the pressure builds up but after pumping then releasing them they go right back to being soft. I replaced the master cylinder and still having the same issue also when pressing on the brake pedal I hear a squishing sound like it is releasing air. Any ideas?
Make sure there is no run out with the rotors , if there is it will move the caliper pistons in and you will have to pump the brakes to move them back out every time. It is best to use a pressure bleeder to make sure all air is removed. ... Dodge Ram 1500

Ford 1998 F-150. Brakes overhauled 6 mos. ago. Hwy/City driving percentage: 90/10. I was driving on the freeway this morning, cruise control on, when the abs and brake light lit suddenly. I tapped my brake pedal to disengage the cruise, but the play was soft & and the pressure did not engage the brakes nor turn off the cruise. I turned off the cruise manually, and attempted a full press on the brake pedal to engage the manual brakes. This did work, but pressed to the floor, braking was

1999 Ford E350 van problem: brake pedal is soft; have replaced master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes and drums, front calipers, rotors and discs; have bled master cylinder before installation and bled all wheel cylinders as well; have also replaced rear anti-lock system; the rear anti-lock system light on the dash remains on; the pedal gets hard when bleeding the brakes, however, does not stay hard after bleeding. Does the anti-lock system need to be bled as well? If so, how?
Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them. ... 2007 Ford E-350 Super Duty Length XLT
I replaced the rear brake lines on a Kia Sedona after they leaked. The rear lines were bled (twice), but the brake pedal is still soft. Do I need to bleed the Master cylinder to get a firmer brake pedal? Do you just pull the line off the master cylinder and bleed, then re-bleed the rears again? Could it be air in the front lines also?? Thanks in advance
