Question about 1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500

1 Answer

Brakes wont hold

My 1997 chevrolet 2500 pickup has been out of commission for about 1 year. I finally repaired some items on it and now my brakes won't hold. I replaced the master cylinder, it seemed like that fixed the problem until I cranked it up, the brake pedal went to the floor. Then someone told me I had to replace the brake booster. The same thing after I replaced it, you think you have good brake until you crank the engine the pedal goes to the floor. Yes, I have bled the lines still no change. Someone help me!

Check all your lines make sure that they are tight also check you calipers and make sure that the seals are good and you are not leaking fluid anywhere. When brakes go to the floor means you have air in the lines still

Rear brakes not working proper. I have never liked the brakes on my 2500 chevy pickup. I bought the truck second hand. I have since replaced the front pads twice. The front pads were gone in 18,000...


e-brake pedal should go farther- is either out of adjustment or cable frozen- secondly sounds like only front brakes receiving enough pressure to "activate" properly- bleed all four brakes starting rear pass,then rear drive ,then front pass, then front drive- use plenty of fluid- bleed till fluid is clean without bubbles- will that long at first- this will insure not bubbles and no moisture- if a pro valve dies,you would have more problems- pedal would be really soft,would have both a brake light and abs warning lights
