Question about 1992 Honda Accord
92 accord when i start the car and hit the brakes they go to the floor and there is no breaks then after i pump them a few times there tere,but then while driving sometimes they arnt there eaither and i got to pump em up to have em grabb....is there air in the system should i bleed them or do i need a brake booster?
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

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.

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 ***.
