Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

The booster only makes the pedal easy to push,this would not be the problem,make sure the shoes are adjusted to where the wheel drags on the brakes as you turn the wheel,this is with no brake pressure applied.The shoes on both sides,both wheels,need to drag on the drums as you turn the wheels by hand,not so tight they are hard to turn by hand ,but where the wheel can not be free spun by hand,or when spinning the wheel,it does not just keep spinning,it will stop shortly after you remove your hand,this will bring the brake pedal up,and give it firmness.

How do you adjust brakes on a 91 ford aerostar 3.0 automatic 6 cylinders.


there is no adjusting brakes you can bleed them ,your best course of action is to take a tire off at a time and check your shoes or pads if your pads are good then you need to bleed your brake starting with the lright rear then left rear then right front then left .

The parking brake problem could have started the problem you are having in the coldest weather. Some may disagree but look carefully at the emergency cable parts. The cable is suppose to equalize the pressure to each wheel. Some of the rear brakes are made to automatically adjust the SERVICE brakes when you use the emergency brakes. Therefore if the emergency brakes are not automatically tightening the SERVICE brakes, you can get excessive play in the "star" wheel and the flat rod that spans both shoes.

This means that the brake cylinder pistons can travel
too far in the cylinder and are trying to bridge the gap. The hold-down pins and springs are loose too.

You can also have moisture in the rear brake lines and the "Brake warning light" is coming on because the proportioning valve is not returning to center in the lines. You should have a power bleed job with a cleaner run through the system and new fluid. That may fix the problem without checking the adjustment of the rear brakes.

Ford Ranger 1994 breaking system just stopped working. No tension on pedal and on checking no brake fluid.


2 places to check 1. look at the rear wheel backing plates for moisture 2. pull the master cylinder back and look for fluid in the vacuum booster. if leaks at the rear its going to be rear wheel cylinders which will require replacing wheel cylinders and shoes. if the vacuum booster is full replace the master and booster.

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.


Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

Footbrake on r/h rear wheel on 1999 corolla not operating at enough pressure. changed brake shoes and wheel cylinder and bled out the system


Is the wheel still able to be spun with it off the ground and the brake applied? If that's the case check all the other wheels. It's possible that one part of the master cylinder is bad and could cause both wheels on the same axle to not brake or diagonal wheels to not brake.
