The brake pedal continue to slowly go down when the brake is applied. 2008 Mazda 3 2.3L


There may be air in brake lines. While changing pads probably it got air from oil cap to inside. I assume that i was opened while putting new pads. You should flush brake fluid first. It should fix the problem

My brake pedal slowly losing pressure goes to the floor and then I have to pump it up again


If you break fluid level is correct and your break pedal goes down to the floor means that your master cylinder is going bad and you might loose your breaks completely if not checked or replaced. Your breaking system is down to the last O ring inside the master cylinder, once that rubber O rings goes you will not have any breaks at all. Master cylinders have a number of rubber O rings that work like a plunger or piston that produce pressure within the breaking system. When the first one wears down due to age, your pedal begins to loose break pressure and you have to pump your breaks several times to gain breaking. You are now down to the last rubber O ring and a warning that your master cylinder needs to be checked. You can still use your breaks but only for a few days before the other rubber O ring gives out too. Once both O rings give out you completely loose your breaks.

air must be entering the system somewhere, check all wheel cylnders for leaks, and check the master cylnder for leaks( some cars's master cylnders leak at the firewall and fluid runs down inside the car under the carpet)

2000 jeep grand ckee push on brake pedal and hissing noise gets loud release pedal and it gets quiter pedal does not get hard to push down but if held will slowly sink to floor


could be one of several problems. first check your brake fluid level, if its low then add some and before you replace the cover try and reset the rubber end back up into itself. if one of the chambers is empty then you'll need to fill it back up and bleed the brakes. if after you refill the resevior and it keeps happening you will need to check the lines for a leak. if the brake fluid is good then you might have a problem with the vacuum assist and you'll want to take it to a mechanic.

My brake pedal sinks all the way down and won't come to a complete stop unless I pump the breaks. When I'm stopped at a light the brake pedal is fine at first but it will slowly sink down again. I'll pump...


There could be any number of things wrong from air in the lines to a leak of fluid. In any case you need to get the car to a mechanic as it loss of brakes is very dangerous.

Put in brake fluid but cannot tell if there is a leak or not


After you put the fluid in the brakes start your blazer keep it in park or in nutral with the parking brake on and then push as hard as you can on the brake peddle using the steering wheel as leverage.This should pop any brake line that is leaking a little bit but not enough to pop any good lines.If the peddle slowly goes to the floor check undernieth the vehicle for any signs of leaking.If no signs of leaking look under the hood where the brake master cylinder is and check for any leaking around the mounting surface.If no leaks there check inside the vehicle where the brake peddle goes threw to the master cylinder for leaks on the inside,this does happen from time to time.

I have replaced the front brakes and right front 98 ford tarus.


typically if you pump the brakes and it gets harder by each pump the master cylinder is good.Check all calipers for leaks,and rubber hoses..still no signs of leaks then open the bleeder screws on both front calipers and let them drip for about 15 minutes,and keeping the resivoir full of fluid..tighten the bleeders and pump them up..hopefully they work and all it was is a little air in them still.
