The only common issue I know if is the master cylinder leaking, but if you changed the booster you would have found your leak.

Check for fluid at the brake pedal under the dash.

Tried bleeding brakes on a '98 Windstar by starting with the longest line first, but all i got was air just barely spitting out fluid. Attempted this process about 50 times with the same results each time....


In my experience, brake master cylinders that have two resevoirs use one, usually the smaller of the two for the rear brakes and the larger for the front brakes. I've never heard of a vehicle that brakes using one side of the vehicle or the other. If I were doing this bleeding I'd rent a power bleeder system from my nearest Autozone or your preferred auto parts dealer, and use that to help me. Have plenty of fluid on hand and try the process with the pressurized system. It always works like a charm for me.

The problem is not the booster, the job of the booster is to make braking easier. If the booster went out the brakes would be hard to press.
Your soft pedal is likely due to air in the brake lines. Bleed the brakes and go from there.

The brake pedal goes almost to the floor and barely stops the truck. The fluid level doesn't change. Are these brakes vacuum assisted? Where should I look first? Thanks.


If the brakes don't hold pressure, and brakes fluid level is good, and have not had to add fluid, if the paddle can be pump up some what, then you need a master cylinder, it's by-passing internal, and will not hold pressure.

I am having an issue where the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor before it will work. From what I understand it may be the brake master cylinder malfunctioning. I am considering replacing it...


Check the vacuum booster first
Shut the car off after it idles for 3 minutes
Apply your foot on the brake and hold
If the pedal seems hard at first and did not go down all the way keep your foot on it for two more minutes
If the pedal gradually goes down to the floor the brake booster is leaking
If not start the car and let idle again
\With the car still idling step on the brake pedal again and hold
If the pedal goes to the floor in a second the master is shot instead

What liquids go in each resevoir?


Coolant in 50% concentration goes into the coolant overflow bottle. Windshield wiper fluid into the wiper fluid bottle. Power steering fluid into the power steering fluid bottle.
You do not need to add any other fluids to these. Do not add water to the washer fluid bottle for example, if you drive in a climate that would allow it to freeze.

Brakes not working properly when you press the brake pedal becomes hard and pushes against pressure


Sounds like the booster. It is located on the drivers side firewall and has the brake fluid resevoir attached to it. Make sure your resevoir has fluid in it as this can affect braking, but not vacuum boost. Look for a vacuum leak, as the booster works on manifold vacuum. If this is not the issue, you may need to replace the booster, but the most common cause of this is loss of vacuum. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Brake pedal will not depress


Let the fluid out of the master cylinder or from a line. If the pedel  then goes down w/o the fluid, then the booster is working ok. Rebuild or replace the master cylinder.

Kia brake prob.


Do you see more smoke than normal from the exhaust?
Check the floor mats on the drivers side for brake fluid, it could be leaking from the master cylinder where the brake pedal connects.
