SOURCE: Brake failure

I would bleed the brakes with a power bleeder.

SOURCE: low brake pressure

If you are positive everything is bled out perfectly, it's possible that there is too much runout in the wheel bearings in front and they are pushing the pads back too far.

Does it feel solid after they are pumped up once? Another possibility is that the adjusters are not coming up in the rear brakes, and the springs are pulling the cylinders back too far.

Somehow air isstill getting into your brake lines, please put more fluid into brake resiviour and have another person check the lines while you are pumping the brake pedal, This should really help

SOURCE: Replaced master cylinder, and all brake

Its not air leak, you must bleed air from system. You have to bench bleed the master cylinder, then bleed each caliper starting from the right rear, then left rear, then front right, then front left. If you've already done this, then do it again, you must have air in your lines or they would work. The only other thing could be your rubber lines are bad and swelling(absorbing the hydraulic pressure) but they would have to both be completely mush.

SOURCE: brake pedal goes to floor even when truck isnt on.

Did you bench bleed your master cylinder before you installed it? If not you may not be able to purge the air from it.

Brake pedal goes to floor vehicle still stops


Is the brake light on? Check your fluid level. Pedal going to the floor could be because of a leak in the hydrolic system line, hoses, caliper, wheel cylinders, master cylinder internal and external leaks. Can also be because of over sized drums and/or under adjusted brake shoes.

Rear wheels lock up on my dodge dakota


What year Dakota? Drum Brakes?

Lock up when?

If you use the parking brake,then the cables
have to be replaced because of rust.

With proper brake maintenance once a year, there is no
reason to say they lock up while driving

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

Cant get brakes to work


Hydraulic brakes are quite simple in their basic operation, but can sometimes be difficult to troubleshoot.
Basically, a piston presses on a hydraulic fluid, which presses other pistons against the brake shoes.
Total failure is rare, but usually indicates where you should be looking to find the problem.
Typical points of failure are:
  • Brake shoes/pads. Shoes are used on drum brakes, pads on disk brakes. While they aren't typically the cause of total failure, they can be a problem.
  • Low brake fluid. Sometimes worn brake pads can result in significant piston movement inside the caliper. That can cause low brake fluid inside the reservoir. Check the fluid level.
  • Leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder. Usually you'll see fluid leaking around the inside of the wheels or down from the master cylinder.
  • Air in the brake line. If there is a poor seal on the master cylinder or if the brake fluid has been allowed to run out, it's possible that you may air in the line. The hydraulic line must be purged of all air for hydraulic brakes to function properly. If you haven't done it before, enlist the help of a mechanically inclined friend who has a little experience with bleeding the brakes.
Of course, it's always possible that a flexible brake line has ruptured or been cut or some other damage has occurred, but that's rare.

Cant get the braks to bild presure


Then you have to have leakage someshere, or, the Master Cylinder is bypassing brake fluid under & around the seals within itself, needing replacement.

The hydraulic system is straightforward. Push the brake pedal, it pushes a rod that pushes the seals inside of the master cylinder that pushes the brake fluid through the lines to the porpotioning valve, which pushes the fluid to each wheel & if there are pads or shoes at those wheels and nothing leaking, the pads/shoes have to work unless the master cylinder is leaking.

Check inside of the vehicle, around & under the carpet behind the brake pedal. If you ae losing or leaking fluid & you can't find it anywhere else, you should find it in the floorboard of the car.

If the system has been opened lately for repairs, then this could be due to air in the system and the need to bleed the brakes. You'll need to have an assistant help with that, work from the farthest point away from the master cylinder with bleeding at each wheel & work to the closest one last. If you do this, keep the master cyliinder full at all times after each brake at each wheel is done. good luck

Brake pedal wont hold when applied


After replacing the wheel cylinder, did you bleed the entire brake system? If not, do that first.
If you are still having problems with the brake pedal going to the floor after bleeding the system and there are no other leaks in the system, it is probably the brake master cylinder. Replace the master cylinder and follow the proper proceedures for that, including the bleeding of the new master cylinder.
