Hi Monroe, It sounds as if there is an air leakage into the brake system. It would be a good idea to have a look under the vehicle and discover if there is a leakage and from which wheel cylinder or cylinders. you'll be able to identify the wheel or wheels because the inside of the rim and tyre will appear wet. You will need to replace the damaged brake slave cylinder(s) which will mean a major brake rehabilitation job. If the leakage has come from the wheels, I would suggest you replace the shoes and pads at the same time. Make a drawing not a photograph. If you draw the parts you'll take more notice of the assembly and be able to reassemble more easily. You do not need a new booster! but you may need a new master cylinder in addition to the wheel cylinders. If you need to know how to bleed the brakes let me know and I'll explain. regards John

Everyone covered everything else, but one thing. Don't suppose you forgot to check the brake fluid.

    Too much brake fluid woul also cause a temporary lose of breaking.

    are you losing brake fluid? if not your master cylinder may be bypassing. pump your brakes so pedal feels hard and then hold pedal down. if it slowly goes down and you are not losing fluid then replace master cylinder.

SOURCE: replaced the brake booster how do you adjust for

Possibly the Proportioning valve. its where the lines go after the master. it has a bleeder screw of some sort on it. The pins inside wear out and stick causing uneven pressure. Replace or rebuild it if that be the case. Also chect the master for fluid leaks at the end of the piston where it connects to the booster push rod. If its leaking rebuild or replace it.

SOURCE: how to replace brake booster on a 92 honda accord

there are 4 bolts that hold it on behind the dash as well as a pin that holds the brake lever to the pin on the booster. You have to pull the master cylinder off, the brake booster vacume hose, then get the 4 bolts and pin out from under the dash. The 4 bolts are a rotay pain in the ***.

Brake trouble shooting

First off make sure you have brake fluid in your reservoir. Secondly if brake fluid is at the full line. I would try bleeding the brakes. This takes two people. On each cylinder there is a bleeder valve. Start with the drivers front with the engine off have somebody pump the brakes 3 or 4 times then hold it to the floor. open the bleeder valve and the break will go to the floor shut the brake bleeder valve. And repeat 2 more times. " MAKE SURE YOU CAN CHECK YOUR BRAKE FLUID AT EACHthe STEP AND REFILL RESERVOIR AS NEEDED".Then move to the next 3 until complete. If this does not fix your problem most likely you have a bad master cylinder. Good luck.

I change breaks pads on my 08 jeep compas after that i push pedal breaks end not i dond have pressure on pedal way? thanks

sounds like you got air in your brake lines from where you changed your pads thier should be a bleeder valve on your brakes get a friend to hold the brake pedal to the floor while you take a wrench and break the valve open when the pedal hits the floor close the valve just continue doing that until pure brake fluid comes out without air bubbles start at the master cylinder under the hood and don't stop until you have done all four corners if that doesn't fix it you might need a brake booster

Fluid is coming out of abs cap on 92 acoord ex and pedal hits the floor?

You have an extremely dangerous situation! Your ABS master cylinder circuit is faulty and leaking allowing air in your whole braking circuits ... thus the brake pedal to the floor! I am afraid that you might need to get your whole braking system reconditioned and serviced as your car is now completely unroadworthy!

Brakes don't kick in till the almost hit the floor board

The first thing that i would investigate is when the last time that car had a brake job, if the pads are good on the car and the pedal still seems to be extra soft, you (A) either have air in one of your brake lines causing the soft pedal, or (B) you have an air leak in one of the brake lines, an easy indicator is to see if there is any brake fluid on the ground under your car, if not, i would start checking for oily residue on the master cylinder, then follow the brake lines to the wheels of the car, looking for any signs of leaks or damage.

Hope this info serves you well
