If there are no leaks and your pedal goes to the floor, it is most likely your master cylinder. DO NOT CONTINUE DRIVING THE VEHICLE!

This is a dangerous condition, and should be repaired immediately.

It is possible you have a blown line. Most vulnerable to this are the two front flexible lines that go to the front calipers. Next is the possibility of a blown seal, The seals are located in the master cylinder and the two front calipers and the two rear calipers or brake cylinders depending on wether you have disk or drum in the rear. If you can look under the car and find a wet spot usually drips down a tire, you will find the source of the leak. If you are losing fluid it has to go somewhere and as long as there is fluid in the resivor it will leak. The master cylinder, where you add fluid, has a front and a rear brake side to it therefore if you blow a line you have a backup.
If you look close at the resivor, using a flashlight, you should be able to see the two independent resivors and tell if one is deficiant .This will be an indication as to where there is a problem. If not you have a bad master cylinder which is malfunctioning.

Make sure you fill up the brake fluid resivoir with brake fluid leave the cap off the resivoir and pump your brakes while the ignition is on but in park, you should feel some brake preasure come back in the pedal. When it does replace the cap and take it for a test drive.

Brakes not working right


Air is getting into the system hence the spongy feel to the pedal. The problem may lie with the brake assist system - have it checked professionally - brakes matter!

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor


Brake pedal goes to the floor? When does it happen. That is the most important piece of information. Most brake systems are power assisted via vacuum from the engine. Your brake booster is what makes the "power assist" work. There are some specific times when you will feel your brake pedal "fade" to the floor and it is normal due to the cycle of the brake components operation.If your brake pedal goes to the floor every time you step on it, stop driving and get to a repair facility! If the pedal is working when driving and the vehicle seems to be working as it always has, then chances are there is no concern. To be on the safe side, have it checked the next time you are in for any other type of service.There is a sensor inside most brake reservoirs that activates the indicator light in your instrument cluster when the level is lower than it should be. As your brake pads wear down, the system requires more fluid so the level at the reservoir drops setting the light. Same thing if there is a leak. The fluid level drops and the light goes on. This brake fluid leak would most likely be combined with a spongy pedal or a pedal fade every time you step on the brakes. A leak would also almost always have a wet area around the leak. Sometimes the leak can be internal to a part of the car you cannot see, so don't count on it.One easy way to check most brake boosters and the brake system for leaks is to turn the vehicle off and pump the brake pedal. Every time you depress the pedal you should feel the pedal "height" come up and the pedal get harder. After a few firm pumps of the pedal, hold it down. Leave pressure on the pedal for 20 seconds or so. Does the pedal move slowly (or quickly) to the floor? If so then there is a leak somewhere in the system. Keeping pressure on the brake pedal, start the vehicle. Does the pedal no drop? It should. That is the power assisted vacuum kicking in as the engine starts to run.The bottom line is that we are talking about your brakes. Your life, your passengers lives and the lives of others on the road around you depends on that system working properly. If you have any doubts, or feel uncomfortable, take it in to have it looked at. Know specifically what it is doing so that you can have your repair facility look at what you are feeling and tell you if

My ABS light has been on for a while and today I hit the brakes and they turned spongy. Then I pushed the pedal some more and the brake pedal went right to the floor. Then the emergency light came on and I...


I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid

Lets review:

ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to

You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement

2007 gmc duramax brakes feel spongy, pedal goes with in 3 inchs from floor or bottom of pedal


You gotta bleed your brakes and get all the air out dude.  Then put in new brake fluid.  Afterwards, make sure to pump the hell out of your brakes to build up brake pressure before you put this thing in drive or you will end up in the neighbors fence or a tree will stop you.

Spongy brake pedal


I have a 2001 Chevy 1500 4 X 4 that recently had all new pads, rotors, and calipers installed. Since then my brake pedal goes almost to the floor before I get any brakes. I took it back to the shop and they bled the brakes with no better results. I bled them also with no results. I took the truck back and they installed a master cylinder with no results. It's now at the Chevy dealer and they say it's normal - BS! I had good brakes before I had all of the brake parts replaced, no one can figure it out. If you have a load in the truck or if you tow anything you better be looking at the ditch to avoid an accident. The original brakes would put you nose into the windshield and now I could stop it better the Fred Flinstone way. Anyone have an answer????????
