How do I fix the brakes in my 99 Toyota Corolla? I have no brakes and the pedal goes right to the floor.


have you adjusted the rear brakes correctly ( drum brakes)
if not drums then you have air in the systems still
brake bleeding is done starting at the wheel with the longest line and ending at the shortest line
It is a 2 person operation unless you have a pressure bleeder pump attached to the reservoir
your problem is air in the system

1998 nissan altima brakes to the floor


Still air in system, sounds like the master cylinder has ran dry during the bleeding process, pumping more air into system. The lines running to the rear brakes are long, so you must bleed the fluid out the bleed screw in the rear 10+ times each side. Bleed, bleed, and bleed some more, keep bleeding untill that pedal feels good.

Rear caliper on 2005 Ford F150 not releasing, replaced both rear calipers, now pedal goes to the floor - no brakes at all. What can/should i do?


Sounds like it still has some air in the system or a bad master cylinder. First try bleeding all air, there is definitely some air left in the lines and this is most probably causing the problem. Bled the lines at the bleeder screws on the calipers. ---------- There is air left in the brake line.Any time the brake system is opened to replace brake lines, caliper, pads etc etc.Mostly the air enters the system, and that air has to be completely bleed.Otherwise the same symptoms , what you are getting will be noticed.-------- Brakes can be bled manually, with a power bleeder, injector tool or vacuum bleeder.IIt does not make any difference which method you use as long as all the lines and components are flushed with enough fluid to remove any trapped air bubbles or air pockets.----
The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car or truck, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.--------- When the complete air is bleed from the line, the brake should be firm when car is on.In your case brake brake pedal is loose and goes almost to the floor when car is ON.This is due to Air in the line.Get the complete air bleed from brake line.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech

No you need to bleed the brakes.

If that doesn't help you need a master cylinder.
Its where the brake pedal is hooked to. and all the brake lines are hooked to it. if you pump the pedal up and leave little pressure on the brake pedal and it slowly goes down with just the wieght of your foot? That is a sighn your master cylinder is bad.

The problem here is air in the ABS system, you must get the ABS hydraulic control unit bled, this can't be done with a special tool that holds open the poppet valves to each wheel so the air can be completely bled out. You must have the brakes bled at a shop OR the dealer that has this tool or its equivalent. There is no way around using the bleeding tool on this ABS system. I get this question over and over on FixYa.

HI, my 1993 cadillac sts brake pedal goes to the floor no brakes, and the fluid is on the driveway under the rear of my car, what happened and what to do to fix the problem.


Probably a broken brake line. Most brake and muffler shops can handle this type of repair. New line must be installed and system bled od air.

Replace brakes. now they go to the floor. bled air


When you fixed the brakes, did you take the lid off the master cylinder. I just wonder if you spilled out your brake fluid. The only reason the pedal should go to the floor is if the brake fluid is gone or the master cylinder is not working. Check the fuse. Check the brake fluid level. The pedal only goes to the floor if there is no back pressure in the lines between the master cylinder the lines to the brake pistion on the calipers. Please give me a good ratin and keep me informed.
