Question about 2008 Ford Expedition
Just put new mc bled it then installed but pedal still goes to floor
Posted on Jan 21, 2013
Don't know how you knew the master cylinder needed
to be, or why it was replaced
They don't fail as often as you hear about reading this
type of web site
If you had braking issues & a fairly decent brake pedal
before new parts went on,then the system wasn't bleed correctly.
I never bench bleed any master cylinder
As you walk it to the vehicle all the fluid runs out,
so why bother,just bleed all 4 corners & your done

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

5 Inspect Brake Fluid Type Brake fluid loss or contamination 10 Inspect Master Cylinder (Brake System) Worn or leaking brake master cylinder. 11 Inspect Brake Power Booster Damaged booster vacuum line/check valve, or diaphram

I would strongly recommend checking your trucks R.A.B.S. (Rear Antilock Brake System) valve . It is located on the left frame rail just under where your left foot would rest . They can leak internally and exhibit the problems you are describing (loss of pedal , with no fluid loss) .
It is highly unlikely that a power booster would cause this , as a failed booster will show itself in these ways . 1) a hissing sound when you apply the brakes (indicates a vacumm leak) 2) rough engine idle/stalling when brakes applied (also indicates a vacumm leak) or 3) No power assist (brake pedal hard to push) .
If you do discover your hydraulic problem is in your RABS valve , don't forget to bleed it ,(there is a bleeder valve on it) and the rear brakes again after you replace it .
Hope this helps

Did you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it? then when you installed the new master, did you bleed all 4 points? If yes, then check all for points for leaking caliper/s and leaking wheel cylinder/s. If the van has ABS, check the valve body for a bleeder screw and see if air bleeds out of it. If you've checked everything twice and did everything right then your new master cyl. may be defective.

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...;-)
