    Have they checked the proportioning valve for possible failure?

    I took my 1992 Chrysler Town and Country with ABS brakes to a dealership to have them look at the brake system. The fluid would leak out and then you wouldn't have brakes. You could stop but you would have to stand on the brakes. Thought it might be recall items. At first they said it was and then they came back with a quote of $2600 for putting a brake master cylinder in. I've been checking online and can not find this part for my van anywhere. Is there truly a master cylinder in my braking system? I'm confused. Thanks

    1999 T & Country van. full brake job. except the master cylinder. The brakes keep getting spongy and going to floor. Must pump to stop. No leaks.

Did your mechanic use a DRB III or equivalent scanner before performing the bleeding procedure after installing the master cylinder? This is a requirement by the manufacturer (Chrysler) when bleeding the brake system.

No brakes


have you replaced the brake fluid and bled the system under pressure, starting with rear wheel diagonally opposite the master cylinder in engine bay. and work way down to shorts. removing all bubbles from the lines. any air in system can travel. you need a brake bleeding kit with pressure lead that fits the cap size on the brake filler. also remember while doing this if you have manual gearbox and hydraulic clutch don't press down on the clutch pedal.

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.

Hi...i have a 2005 chrysler town & country sto & go LX 3.3L V-6 mini van....for some reason the brakes r acting up....sometimes they work sometimes the pedal goes all the way to the floor....master...


its sounds like it could be a bad master cylinder with an internal leak.it could also be a problem with the abs hydraulic module that for some reason is bypassing brake fluid within the unit itself.these problems won`t neccessarily turn on the dash light or activate the abs light.

if it is the wheel cylinder that is leaking then it will have to be replaced and all the components cleaned with brake cleaner.depending how badly soaked the brake shoes are you may have to replace them also.you may have to heat the brake line that connects to the wheel cylinder,or even replace the line if it gets damaged.the bleed all the air out of the system,

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo in which the clutch pedal went to the floor & stayed there. Upon inspection, the clutch master cylinder was empty on fluid. I filled the reservoir & bleed the clutch...


It sounds as if you have 2 problems here.

The fact that the clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there suggest a fault in the master cylinder. It may be that you need to overhaul the master cylinder.

Overhaul kits are available at less cost than a clutch master cylinder:

The grinding noise ... A grinding noise would be caused by either the gear not engaging properly because of the defective clutch.

Or, if it is more of a squealing noise - that may be the clutch release bearing at fault.

Are you absolutely sure that your entire clutch unit - pressure plate, driven plate and release bearing aren't worn?

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running


Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.

Brake pedal goes to the floor? replaced all the brakes and bled them. worked for very short time and now the pedal goes to the floor.


If the fluid level is staying constant then it sounds like the brake master cylinder or the master cylinder booster. If the seals are bad on the master cylinder the piston just goes through the fluid. Many boosters use air pressure to assist in the braking proces and it could have a leak.
