I have a ford escort xr3i 1988 i have replaced the brake master cylinder, bleed the brakes but still have no brakes what could be wrong?

Your car has a diagonally split brake system. Each side of this system must be bled as an individual system, and there is a correct bleeding sequence to be followed. First bleed the right rear brake, second, bleed the left front brake, then follow with the left rear brake and lastly, bleed the right front brake.Here's a link on a repair guide for bleeding your brakes.

84 944 front brakes sticking, any ideas ?

Hello there
for start you should check your brake pads.If they are low it will be good to replace them.
Also check your rotors if they are not worn out .The reason would be if you would replace your br.pads they will not last you to long with bad rotors.
In your case if the brakes are sticking find out which side.I will recomend to bleed the system a see.
Of course the best would be to rebuild the calibers.The brakes are sticking most likely because
the pistons in calibers have some dirt or little rust on them or your dust protectors are broken or have some cuts.
You can also try to lube the pistons in calibers with(if you have )little needle and with someone help (remove one brake pads at a time only),pump the pistons out a little at a time and spray some clean brake fluid behind the dust covers..

I hav a 1984 porsche 944 n the clutch petal is on the floor what am i lookin for that would cause this to happen is it a clutch cable set up or is it a hydrolic set up ???

hello there
first thing you check you brake fluid level if is too low that would create air in the system .
It is part of brake fluid reservoir
when you fill it you need to bleed the system at the sleve cyllinder which operates the clutch arm .
it is by the transmission

If you know how to flatshift smoothly, you won't hurt a thing. Your just pushing against the brass synchronizers anyway. As for a tool for bleeding, a manual/hand operated vacuum bleeder is available to do the job at the slave cylinder from any auto parts supplier. Thing is, it should just gravity bleed on it's own by just filling the master and open the slave bleeder. When fluid starts running out, close the bleeder. I've done that a lot. if there's any air left in the system, it'll just work its way out with normal use of the clutch. I like the 944 a lot, and the '85 is nice to have. Not a lot of them left now days. Good keeper.

1987 944 clutch pedal stays on the floor

look, if the clutch pedal is to the floor, there are about 3 different things that could be wrong. First check brake fluid to make sure full, see if there is any leakage under steering wheel and below transmission. Next could be the slave cylinder, it could be faulty or not bled right. Last it could be the master cylinder. If when you bleed the slave cylinder and have no movement in the arm inside the transmission then most likely the master cylinder is broken. Look under the steering wheel and see if everything looks entact. Watch the movement of the pedal and see if movement looks normal and see if fully attached. Good luck. Check for any problem in which you want to fix yourself. Great free site.
