I depressed brake pedal with parking brake on... it went to the floor & brake warning light went on... brake fluid appears okay. 1996 cavalier


If there's no leaks ( check back of tires ) your master cylinder is by passing, replace master cylinder and bleed brake system to get all air out of new master cylinder. ( bench bleed master cylinder first ).

2004 cavalier clutch pedal stays on floor,clutch not slipping. do i change clutch master cyl


Check for fluid leaks first along the line. Also check the mechanical linkage. Then try bleeding it. Changing the master cylinder is your last resort. That way you dont buy parts you don't need.
