    Put fluid in at night and left caps off and the next morning no fluid had leaked out...BUT...driving the car for a few hours, pedal felt soft and then eventually went to the floor and then when I checked NO FLUID!

You have aleak some place, that needs to be addressed first. Was the reservoir completely out of brake fluid? If so air has enetered system and will have to be bled. Always start at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder. Generally it is the passenger side rear. As said fix the leak before you bleed. If you need help once fixed let me know and we can go from there.

How to bleed brakes


Supplies you will need:

bottle of brake fluid

small clear container

18" length of 1/4 inch I.D. clear tubing

wrench that fits your bleed screw

another person

Open hood,loosen lid to brake reservoir to be able to monitor fluid level. Removing the tires makes it easier to access bleed screws but not necessary on all vehicles. Start at the caliper farthest from the reservoir, attach tubing onto bleed screw so it is tight fitted on bleed nipple.Put enough brake fluid into clear container and put open end of tubing into fluid, ensure tube stays in fluid throughout entire process as to not suck air into system. Have your assistant sit in car and pump brake pedal three times and hold to floor, then loosen bleed screw just enough to relieve pressure in brake line, the brake pedal will sink right to the floor..this is normal. DO NOT RELEASE BRAKE PEDAL UNTIL BLEED SCREW IS TIGHTENED AGAIN. Repeat this process until clear tube is full of brake fluid and no bubbles come out of caliper. Repeat steps for all calipers. Hope this helps

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.

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor. the pads and rotors look fine, the fluid is full and i can't find a leak in the line. the light does not come on...


is pedal conected under dash to actuator rod
does light come on when key is first turned on
is there any burnt fuse
fluide could be leakig back into vavumed brake booster (on firewall)
take cap of put rag over and depresss pedal sevral times check levels
pulling back up on pedal to get full pedal motion some leaks are harder to find has
they sray out if your alone put carbord under vehicle and press pedal until there is
luide on carboard then trace that area
works for me on hard to find leaks

Brake pedal goes down to the floor to make it stop


check first the brake fluid reservoir to see if it is full, then bleed the brakes if the petal will not come up.

What are the proper steps to bleeding your brakes on a 1990 vw golf deisel


For left hand drive vehicles: (If the car does not have ABS system you do not need any diagnostic equipment!)

IMPORTANT NOTE: You need using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car in order to bleed the ABS block. Follow instructions by scantool equipment for bleeding the ABS block.


1. This bleeding procedure requires two people. Remove the brake system reservoir cap, and fill up with new brake fluid until "MAX" level is reached.
2. Lift the car, or use a channel for access under vehicle.
3. Put the gearbox in "N" - Neutral position, or in "P" - Parking position for automatic transmission.
4. Start the engine and push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor.
5. Begin with the rear right wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
6. Repeat steps no.#4 and no.#5 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

7. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
8. Continue with the rear left wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
9. Repeat steps no.#7 and no.#8 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

10. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
11. Continue with the front right wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
12. Repeat steps no.#10 and no.#11 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

13. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
14. Continue with the front left wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
15. Repeat steps no.#13 and no.#14 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.
16. Now the brakes are bleeded. Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. Fill up with new brake fluid until "MAX" level is reached. Put back the brake reservoir cap.
17. Test the car brake system. The brake pedal movement no more than 1/3 of total stroke until the floor, when brake pedal is applied. Maximum admissible is 1/2 of total stroke.

I have just recently replaced two front brake lines on my 93 ford taurus. yesturday, i was driving home from work and all of a sudden its like i had no brakes. i can put the brake peddle to the floor, and...


You will need to buy a few bottles of brake fluid to accomplish this:Try bleeding all the air out of the brake lines starting from the farthest wheel from the resevoir. This can be done alone but is easier with two people. You will need a 10mm or 3/8"(varies depending on Model) wrench to loosen the bleeder screws on one wheel at a time. The bleeder screw looks like a babies bottle nipple only steel with a hex on the lower portion. They are sometimes tight and awkward to loosen. If you can , pre loosen the bleeders before you begin.(make sure that they can be easily opened and shut, and keep closed until you are at that particular wheel) When you begin pump the pedal about 5 -8 times to build up pressure and hold. Now the person at the bleeder can open up the screw until a steady stream of brake fluid comes out with no air. When the pedal goes to the floor close the bleeder(without lifting foot of brake pedal) and try process again if there is still air in oil. If you lift your foot off the brake pedal when bleeder is open, this will draw air into the brakes causing more air to enter. If you are by yourself simply use a small container with clean fluid in it and put a small hose from the bleeder into the container with fluid in it.( I used a half full brake fluid bottle and a small rubber hose) Make sure that the hose is immersed in the brake fluid. Open the bleeder and push the pedal slowly down and up a few times to expel the air. You dont need to worry about air getting in unless the hose is not in the oil. You can buy a one man bleeder kit from Princess Auto or any other automotive dealer(Canadian Tire)to do it yourself. Hope that this helps you out.

After I bleed my Brakes why does the brake pedal still go to the floor


If you bled them properly, ( with a hose on the bleeder screw, and the other end into a bottle of brake fluid) then your master cylinder is probably faulty. If you don't know what i mean by the hose thing, you get a piece of vacuum line about 2 feet long, that will fit tight over the bleeder screw. You put the other end in a clear glass bottle, about half full of brake fluid. Pump your brakes until no more bubbles are coming out of the hose into the bottle. Tighten the bleeder screw, and repeat on each wheel.

My brake lights won't turn off and the brakes are not engaged


the brake light switch may be bad, or the brake pedal is not coming back enough to turn the switch off, look up under the dash where the brake brake is, and you may see if the pedal is depressing the switch properly.

Dash warning light


on the 93 there is a problem with the abs system. there are several things that could be wrong. if i remember correctly the module is behind the passenger side kick panel. you will find a single wire coming off the module. if you ground it then turn on the key it will flash the brake lights in the dash. count the flashes this is the code for the error. it will help in the repair. as for the second truck you have a leak that needs repaired.
