If you can pump up the pedal w key off and hold it while starting engine, then it sinks to floor, the master cylinder is like bypassing pressure internally.

2000 electraglide, trying to bleed brakes on the rear master cylinder. I take the cap off master cylinder put a hose on bleeder valve, pump up break and hold it down crack the valve and nothing comes out....


does the pedal have pressure then go down after valve is cracked? With a hose on the nipple to a bottle to catch the fluid, press rear brake pedal down. Don\'t pump the brakes. Crack the bleeder valve while continuing to press down on the pedal. Once the pedal reaches the limit of its travel close the valve. Once the valve is closed; and not before; release the pedal and let it return to its at rest position. Repeat this process until you have good pedal without the need to pump, good clean fluid is coming out the valve, and no air is in the fluid coming out the valve. Be sure not to let the fluid in reservoir get too low or you will suck in air and need to start over and don\'t press the pedal too quickly or you can shoot a stream of brake fluid out the reservoir.

In very extreme cases, if you have lost prime in the master cylinder, it may be necessary to bleed the master cylinder first. THIS IS A LAST RESORT. Remove the brake line from the master cylinder. Try to limit the loss of fluid from the brake line to bare minimum. Thread a nipple into the master cylinder. Run a hose from the nipple into the reservoir. Be sure the hose stays submerged in the fluid in the reservoir and pump the brake until no bubbles come out the hose. Remove the nipple and reinstall the brake line. Slowly press down the brake pedal while tightening the line to minimize the air bubble in the brake line. Again be sure not to release the pedal until the line is tight. Then proceed to bleed the brakes as you normally would. Do not pump the brakes up. Just press the pedal down, crack the valve, close the valve, release the pedal, repeat.

How to tell is the brake booster is bad in a 1986 dodge D100


This is a standard Vacuum operated brake booster.. If you are having fluid leaking at the rod that attaches the brake pedal to the booster it is a bad Master Cylinder. The Brake fluid will eventually destroy the diaphram in the booster if it hasn't already. . Replace or rebuild the Master Cylinder and wash the brake fluid out of the booster. When the booster goes bad the brake pedal will become very hard to push.. because you will have lost "boost" This is not really a hard job. If fluid id leaking somewhere else.it should be very easy to spot.. Brake fluid looks like oil leaking..

I was driving it and i pressed the brake and all of a sudden the brake pedal and clutch pedal both went down a piece by the pedal broke an now it wont go in to gear


Hi

the Hydrolic clutch has failed by the sound of it, the clutch on his car shares fluid with the brakes hence why both pedals went down. you might be lucky and the slave cylinder might have failed or lost pressure, this in fact is very common on this car.

Have the slave cylinder checked out and look under the car for any fluid leaks

Regards

1996 200sx brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


You have lost your fluid. in other words you have a leak, probably from a caliper on the wheel. look behind your wheels and see if there is any fluid on the tire or floor. Top up the reserverve and pump the brakes with the engine running see if this brings some of the pedal back. then get it to a brake shop and get it fixed.

2000 silverado brake work good 90% of the time, but the odd time the pedal goes to the floor, and in the last second the abs kicks in. Then they work good again for a while. Could it be the booster, I...


may i suggest your problem is the brake master cylinder is faulty ie the line pressure is being lost due to fault on seal that is supposed to maintain brake pipes/line pressure when pedal is off resulting in brake pedal intermittantly going to floor but if you pump pedal it comes back ? the fact you mention you drained master cyl ? reservoir ?? and fluid was dirty ? assume you bled all brakes to flush b/system too ? the fluid being dirty is a clear indication that the seals on m/cyl pistons are deteriated and allowing fluid to pass seals and cause pedal to travel further SO best advice is to replace the master cyl as repair kits/seals are hard to come by these days then use new fluid and bleed all brakes/cyl's hope this helps ?

LOST OF PRESURE WHEN PEDAL IS APPLIED.


If you're refering to the brake pedal that is caused by either air in the system and/or a fluid leak.Also check fluid level and any wet spots on the ground under the car along the brake line route including on the inside of the wheels
