SOURCE: 2005 f150 spongy brakes

it sounds like your still not getting all the air out of your lines. it helps to have a brake bleeder but they are expensive, it also could be that the gasket inside the master cylinder is inverted even if it is a new master cylinder this could be the case, ive had four bad remanned ones in a row, before i got a good one... hope i could help

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: brake pedal keeps creeping down, but there are no leaks.

check your brake booster and also make sure the rear shoes are adjusted up where they belong. If they are not adjusted up the brake pedal will go farther and farther toward the floor and get spongier as they go farther out of adjustment. If you adjust them up and they back down again change your self-adjusters and springs. They are readily available at your local parts store.

SOURCE: parking brake pedal goes to floor

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

Parking brake will not keep car from moveing when i push e pedal to floor.


Without knowing which type of e-brake you have (foot pedal or handbrake), just about ever type of e-brake has two places to adjust it, well, that bears explanation. The one actual adjustment will be near the operator, either under the handle on a hand brake, or above the pedal on a pedal brake. You will notice that there is a long threaded rod with two nuts on it, loosen those and turn them down to pull slack out of the cable which runs to the rear wheels,

Now the other item is not so much an adjustment, it may be just wear on the pads or shoes of the brake itself. Some cars will use the regular braking pads/shoes as the same means for the e-brake, while others have pads/shoes committed to just the e-brake.

I would suggest attempting the cable adjustment in the drivers compartment first, as if this does not work you will be needing either a shop or brake mechanic to open the rear brakes.

Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

Leaking brake fluid from right front wheel 1995 honda passport


Sounds like from what you describe it's a leaking break caliper. The best thing to do is get a rebuilt one. It's best to replace them in pairs. Also replace or clean the brake pads thoroughly!

I have a 1991 honda civic dx seadan. i change the brake caliper and the power booster and master cylinder and bleed the brakes with the car engine off. but when you turn the car on the brake pedal go...


There's still air in the lines, just open the bleeder screws all of them and gravity bleed them , take the resovoir cap off and make sure you keep fluid in it . This may take some time but you will be happy when done. If you bleed them with a friend do one at a time pump the pedal, keep pressure on pedal and open the bleeder screw. when pedal goes to the floor repeat the process until its only fluid that exits the bleeder. Repeat this for the rest of the bleeders.

Fading brake pedal when engine running , have replace front pads, master cylinder and bleed entire system, pedal is firm with engine off but once started pedal fades to floor


Hold pedal down firmly with vehicle not running. Now start it up still holding pedal down firmly. Does it go to the floor when engine is started? If so I would look at the brake booster. It may be defective.

I have a 1996 buick century with little brake pedal resistance


Okay....air is always the likely suspect....contamination of the hydraulic system too. Quick question, was it like this before the maintenance was done?

The other thing it could be also is the power brake booster check valve.

Let me know if it was like this before all the work.

Plus, if the parts were remanufactured, they could be faulty parts.

But let me know if it was like this before the work was done.
