You have one or more problems. Leaking wheel cylinders, leaking master cylinder, air in the brake lines of a combination. When you bleed the brakes, bleed them in this order with a positive pressure brake fluid container. Right rear, left rear, right front left front. If you bleed them on any other order, you will just push the air around in the system. Bleed until no bubbles come out.

What does it mean when the clutch petal goes all the way to the floor in my 2003 suzuki aerio

Your clutch fluid reservoir may need brake fluid-yes, it uses brake fluid as a hydraulic fluid. Check reservoir on the firewall. It will sit beside the brake master cylinder. The reservoir sits atop the clutch master cylinder.
If it was dry, the clutch may need bleeding down at the slave cylinder on the transmission housing-where the clutch fork sticks out of the transaxle.. Open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, and have someone slowly press clutch down. Keep bleeding until a steady stream of fluid comes out when clutch is pressed. Then close bleed valve, check clutch operation-pedal should have some pressure on it now.

2003 chevy impala brake pedal goes to floor when sitting at a complete stop

First, check your brake fluid levels, if it is low then that enplanes your problem. Also, when was the last time you had the brakes changed? if the are worn down, then this will also cause a low fluid level. if the brakes are fine and the fluid level is good and you still have the same issue, then your problem is probably your master cylinder. Brake boosters hardly ever go bad.

1991 chevy caprice brake problem

You probably need to replace your brake pads. They are what queezes your tires to get them to stop. If your brake pads are old, they can be worn down over time and become less effective at gripping the wheels to stop them. You press your foot all the way to the floor, but the pads are too thin to create enough resistance to push back.

96 Nissan Maxima not getting brake fluid left rear and right front at all

With or without ABS? Or does the master cylinder have two or four lines coming out it? I have a feeling you have a bad masterclinder. The lines on a non abs are cross proportional, meaning one front and one rear are supplied fluid by one part of the master and the other two are supplied by the other. Try cracking the lines loose on the master cylinder and pressing down on the brake pedal. Try this for ll the lines making sure to tighten the fitting before letting up on the pedal ( just like if you where bleeding the brakes at the wheels). If no luid comes out than you just confirmed a bad mastercylinder.

How do i bleed the brakes on a 99 ford expedition?

on the brake calipers ther is a bleeder screw. It looks like a grease fitting.1) fill brake fluid 2) have a helper pump the brake pedal ( vehicle not running ) 6 - 8 times to the floor and release then press pedal to the floor and hold with foot pressure pressing down. 3) at this time loosen the bleeder valve and the pressure and air will release,( do not allow brake pedal to release or come up, continue to hold to the floor ! ) after pressure and any noticeable air bubbles and no more fluid comes out then this is the time to tighten or (close ) the bleeder screw. 4) continue this process untill no visable air bubbles are present, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU CHECK THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR AFTER TWO BLEEDINGS AND FILL AS NECESSARY ! 5) Continue the procedure on the opposite side. Do the two front wheels and the rear wheels as a pair as the brake system is a two part system, FRONT & REAR

sounds like you have a worn set of park break shoes. they are located inside /behind the read rotors. if you remove the rotor and the shoes look fine then you can adjust them with the little star gear located on the bottom of the brake shoes.

Brake pedal will go all the way to the floor

make sure brake fluid is full. then pump brakes for one minuite check the fluid to see if it went down or stayed full. if it went down then check the system for a leak . if it stays full then you will need a new mastercylender . i dont think you have a vacum problem cause this causes a verry stiff brake pedal not one that goes to the floor
