Brakes are spongey been to dealer and they bleed system etc and made no difference . Now they are saying that is normal


year make model?

since you're seeing a dealership, i'm guessing it's still under warranty? if it's a new car, don't take no for an answer and go to another dealership

if this is an older car, goto an independent shop instead & see what they find

1999 buick century brake pedal goes to floor-put new master cylinder on and blead both brake lines and master cylinder and pedal still goes to floor


Sounds like you may have a hydraulic leak somewhere. Check the rear wheel cylinders and front brake hoses going to the calipers.

Brake pedal goes to floor -i put a new master cylinder on it and blead the lines and cylinder an still go to the floor


To bleed the brakes on this year and model requires a special tool that holds open the pressure valves in the active ABS system, there is no work around. Any brake shop or tire shop that does brake work can do this bleeding, I see this question all the time.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

PRe bleed the master cylinder, using a kit that hooks up to the brake lines connection and the other end goes into the fluid reservoir. Bleed until no bubbles. then reinstall brake lines, one at a time, and then continue bleeding the system. DO NOT let the fluid run low in M/C or start all over again. Kit can be purchased at after market parts stores.

I changed the break pad, blead the breaks, and the pedal stil goes to the floor and break system light goes off.


check your master cylinder and booster see if you see a fluid leak if not then take cap off resivior and open bleeder valves just enough to let them bleed out on all four wheels KEEP THE RESIVOIR FULL OF BRAKE FLUID while your doing this .. this procedure should take about 45 min

Hi ive got brake problems with my suzuki vitara 1.6 8v s reg ive changed the master cylinder and the brake pads and they wont bleed when i turn the engine on there are no brakes and when i turn it off...


Is the new cylyder new or used?
Do you know the seals are ok(master cyl. and calipers/slave)?
Have you blead front and rear?
Is the front lines out , connected to the front?
These are some of the mistakes I have made with brakes and obvious things to check/ask, but never overlook the obvious.

Put new roders, brake pads, and calipers on 2002 Olds Alero. The brake peddle is really soft and goes almost all the way to the floor....Why is this? Car has 26,000 on it..


groan......master cylinder not brakes and rotors and what not. hopefully you kept all of you old stuff because there was probably nothing wrong with it. also, make sure that you do a realy good job bleading you break = air will cause the pedal to go down to the floor. also if you change the master cylinder, that you try and bleed most of the air out before you install it into your vehicle

did you possibly replace brake lines with standard instead of metric lines.The standard lines will fit but you will not get pressure back
