My son was driving the car when the brake pedal went all the way to the floor.  Changed master cylinder and bled all the lines.  Still going all the way to floor.  Any Ideas?

    you need to check everything to make sure all your bleeders are tight, no leaks what so ever. Also check the lines going into master cylinder. are they tight with no leaks. did you bleed the master cylinder before you hooked up the lines. you may need to pull the master cylinder and bleed it first then put it back on. Mostly it sounds like you have air in a line. Try bleeding even more.

Its possible the brake booster is bad its the vacuum canister on the firewall behind the master cylinder it basically gives you the power in your power brakes

My 2000 Grand Prix the brake pedal just went to the floor. What is wrong :(


It could be that your brake fluid reservoir is empty. You might also have a crack in the line.

After having changed the rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders, and bled them the pedal was good. Then the pedal was going to the floor slowly so I had to pump the brakes to get enough stopping power....


It sounds that you have done a pretty good job at this point. Remember that the brake adjustment will dictate the amount of brake pedal. Recheck to make sure the right brake linings were used. Recheck to make sure the brakes on the rear are adjusted up as far as possible. As far as the bleeding, I have had many cars that will not bleed the sytem without the engine running to give it the pressure needed to pass through the master cylinder and lines. Have a WELL ventilated area, car in neutral, wheels chocked, and bleed the brakes with the engine running. Remember to take all safety precautions to avoid injury before attempting this.

While driving my 1994 Honda Accord the brakes went out. I can only get the car to stop if I press the brake pedal all the way down to the floor. When the car is shut off and I pump the brake pedal, I can...


There may be air in the lines. Bleed all your brakes starting at the farthest wheel from the resevoir, and finishing at the closest one. Try the pedal after its bled. If the pedal still feels soft or travels to the floor there may be a pinhole leak that may be spraying on the underbody of the car, or the seals in the master cylinder are gone filling the vacuum booster(if equipped). Air compresses more than oil so if bleeding works that may be the problem.

I have bled brakes replaced front pads and even replaced rear passager wheel cylinder and re bled brakes still not working when car is running


Did you run out of brake fluid , if you did the brake master cylinder seal may have reversed and when you are trying to bleed the brakes the fluid is bypassing the seal , you think you have a good pedal when the engine is not running , but when you start the engine the pedal goes to the floor , you will need to fit a new or second hand master cylinder to cure the problem , I had this with my sons car and the problem was cured with a second hand master cylinder , I hope this helps

1989 Dodge Dynasty brakes lock up


Does it happen for you? Is he driving with one foot only or one foot on the gas and one for the brake? Maybe his shoe is hitting the brake without knowing it if the brake is close to the gas pedal.
