Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
Good luck!

SOURCE: 1998 chevy s10- brake pedal goes to the floor-

Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

SOURCE: Spongy brakes after bleeding them 2 times. Should I try to bleed the master cylinder or replace it?

Honestly your guess is as good as mine. But I don't think the master cylinder is NOT bad you still have air in the system. Get a big bottle of brake fluid bleed all four sides until you run out of fluid or your brakes work properly. You should divide the bottle's content in four, then use each quantity in each side. You'll be removing air and contaminated fluid from the system. Get a small hose that fits on the bleeders and an appropriate container. I have a good feeling if you do this your brakes will work just fine. I don't know how you are bleeding the brakes. I'll let you know the proper way just in case. This is a two man job, with the wheel off, have someone start the car. Have them pump the brakes a few times to get pressure. 1With the brake pedal UP open the bleeder, 2then have your assistant press the brake pedal all the way down and leave it completely pressed down. 3Close the bleeder valve, once close and only with the valve closed have'm release the brake. Repeat as necessary, bake depressed, open valve first then press brake. DO NOT depress until valve completly closed. Close valve THEN depress. Good Luck!

You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.

SOURCE: Brake Pedal goes to the floor in my 1990 Chevy C1500 Scottsdale

May I ask you a question?, before you replace the main rear brake line your brakes were working good?, 'cause if your are saying all connections and lines are fine, then you have to start cheking your rear and front brake pads as well as your front calipers and rear wheel cylinder for proper working,last thing you have to check is the brake booster for no air leaks and check it's working good, good luck.

Bleeding the brakes


Some vehicles have an odd way of bleeding them. My Chysler is one of them. Typically, you start from the wheel furthest from the master cylinder and complete one axle at a time, ending with the front wheel closest the master cylinder. On vehicles where the brake line is a tandem design, this is not the procedure. The brakes are bled diagonally beginning with the rear wheel closest the master cylinder and going diagonally to the front wheel, and then to the other rear wheel and then diagonally to the final front wheel, closest the master cylinder. Failure to follow the correct bleed protocol may leave some air in the lines, leading to a spongey pedal., depending on what type of brake line routing your vehicle has. Check your brake lines for leaks.

The whole assembly has the brake line adapters, master cylinder, reservoir and the power brake booster (the large circular part that connects into the firewall). If you are referring to the coils in the brake lines, they are there to make the difference between the front brake lines and rear brake lines closer to the same distance allowing more even braking on all four wheels.

Poor Traction


Worn out seals in the master brake cylinder or air in the brake line or one or more brake shoes at a wheel are used up and the week brake cylinder is fully extending past it's usual travel length. Last thing is rear brakes may be out of adjustment. Try backing up several times applying the brakes to stop, this should adjust the rear brakes. Cars require maintenance.

just put something underneath and catch the fluid ,then when you have finished and refill you will have cahnged the brake fluid anyway ,if the brake pipe is corroded then you live in a wet climate and the fuid needs changing more often than in a desert climate.

Have it done by a pro because any connections have to be double flared, then the brakes have to be bled.

93 chevy lumina the brake lines aren't getting fluid


Open the bleeder screws on your brake, and stick a gas line hose on the bleeder screw. Put the other end in a clear bottle of brake fluid, and pump the brake till all the air bubbles quit coming out. Then tighten the bleeder. If no bubbles come, you may have a faulty master cylinder.
