Question about 1996 Honda Accord
My brake pedal can get pretty low to the ground when i brake, is it time to get new pads or is there something wrong with the brake pressure system, if so, let me know what i can do if anything. Thx! -Cabnode
Most likely time for some new pads/shoes and check rotors/drums
The things you should check are:
1. Fluid level in the master cylinder, if this is low you have a leak somewhere and it needs to be fixed, if it is a '96 it could have a leak in a caliper seal or a wheel cylinder and it would be tough to see.
2. If it has been a while since you have changed them check your pads/rotors for wear
3. If the pads are good, bleed the air out of the system. however air in the system usually causes the pedal to feel "spongy" and not just sink to the floor
