It sounds like you still have a leak somewhere if you still hear air from somewhere. Replace the line with a new one and fill the master cylinder, then bleed the brakes. Start with the farthest one away from the master cylinder. An air vaccum bleeder works good for this if you do not have help.

I had my back brakes replace which are drum brakes and also got new drums. After I got my car back the brake pedal was squishy and went to the floor and pulled to the right. I was then told that the front...


Okay, Sounds like you have a bad brake bleeder on the right side. Check beforehand by calling the auto parts stores to see if they carry brake bleeders. It is absolutely necessary for all lines to bleed.
There is a pattern to use when bleeding brakes. The longest rear line first, next longest rear line, then the passengers front and finally the Drivers front.
As each line is bled. the Master cylinder should be monitored for low fluid. When the rear brakes are working, you will hear the brake springs work when the brake pedal is pressed.
It is possibly to have a plugged brake line which can only be determined once the brake bleeder releases the fluid. There can be variations in the brake adjustment, so before putting on the wheel, adjust the star wheel evenly from side to side. Hang (Fit) the drum to the axle and snug up with the lug nuts. Spin the rear wheels and note that each side is evenly touching the brake linings.

Braking problem


If you hear an air sound when u push on the brake pedal then its usually the master cylinder. If u can't hear air then you either have a leak in one of your brake lines or there is still air in your brake lines. If that's the case then they need to be bleed out.

Bleed the brakes and still going to the floor


Did you reset the expansion diaphragm in the master cylinder cover? (It gets pulled down if you lose fluid so you don't get air into the lines.) If you pushed it back into its normal position, you topped off the fluid in the master cylinder, and you still don't have pressure on the brake pedal, your master cylinder is due for repair or replacement, or the actuator linkage is broken.

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...


The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

I have a 1993 Toyota pickup truck and I am having a brake problem. I have replaced the brake pads, calipers, brake booster, lower lines, checked for vaccum, master cylinder and I still do not have brakes.


Hello, do you have brake in the front or in the back or both? Have you bled the air out of the braking system? You need to think this through instead of RR--remove and replace. The hydraulic brake are the most reliable system that the brake shoes or pads could be down to the metal and it would still stop the vehicle. You lose a brake line or brakes on one wheel, and it will still stop the vehicle with two wheel cylinder or pads working. The brake system is diagonal that is; left front/right rear and right front/left rear. Therefore, if the vehicle loses any one braking system the other will work.


Now, on your Toyota Truck there is load compensator valve hook to the frame with the two rear wheel line going into this valve. The a lever the attached to the rear differential. The way it suppose to work is when a load in placed in the bed of the truck. The load dynamic will position the differential by the load pushing down on the bed. This causes the load lever arm to change position and slightly closing the valve; in turn, limits the brake pressure on the rear wheels.



I don't know why Toyota Motors installed this load compensator valve. It more trouble than what it worth. I have removed these load valves, and took it apart, and plug the valve piston hole with a brass plug. This lets the brake pressure flow evenly through out the braking system.



Remember, you need to bleed the braking system of air and I mean all the air bubbles for the braking system could operate appropriately to manufacture specification. GB...stewbison

I have a 1996 Ford Mustang that has no brakes what so ever. THe brake pads are good and we blead the brakes to no luck. Dont know what is wrong with it please help.


Your master cylinder must be loosing pressure or have a faulty seal. Also if you have any air in your brake lines you will need to start over because the brakes will not work with any air in the lines. Check your brake lines for holes or leaks.
