First where is it leaking from is it the banjo bolt that connects the hydraulic fulid line to the caliper or is it the bleeder bolt check those to see if lose.. or is it leaking from around the brake pads if so the seals around the piston or pistons depending on the caliper. if so new caliper or find a junkyard. you will have to bleed the brake line of air after swaping caliper i highly suggest getting a power bleeder for removing air out of the lines keep in mind that you have to keep the resavor full of brake fulid awhile power bleeding...!

I install reman booster new master cylinder and the pedal goes to the floor what can i do


You probably need to start over...1st by bench bleeding the master cylinder...(you can do this on your truck...review the bleeding instructions...after completing this you need to be sure the master cylinder is full of brake fluid...you will need a helper...but your next step will be to bleed each wheel brake caliper or cylinder. Start with the right rear, next left rear, then right front to drivers side front...(farthest away to start) you may have a brake fluid leak...if not, your pedal pressure should continually raise...Hope this helps.

Brakes are hard at first then the pedal slowly goes to the floor.


You need a new master cylinder. I'm assuming that you aren't losing brake fluid from a leak somewhere.

As the master cylinder wears out it's internal seals allow fluid to leak past the pistons. None actually leaks out of the brake system so you don't see the leakage on the ground under the car and the brake fluid level remains constant.

Replacing the master cylinder is not hard from a technical standpoint but it is a job you'll want a service manual's help with just so you know the proper steps to take. A small, hand operated, vacuum pump is a godsend when you get to the part of bleeding the brakes and this is a good time to flush the brake lines anyway. Proper tools are a must, get a proper line wrench to avoid damaging the brake lines when you remove them from the master, and be careful when reinstalling the lines that you don't start them crooked and cross thread the line fittings.

A good quality rebuilt master cylinder will do the job, or you can spring for the new factory part. Back in the day we used to rebuild them but finding a rebuild kit is impossible these days.

I have brake fluid leaking from back passenger wheele right from the back onto the tire..is this a costly repair? is there any thing i can do to fix it my self


No, it won't be costly. It's just the brake cylinder leaking. You will need to buy a new one. You will have to pull the wheel off, and take the brake drum off. Undo the brake line from the back of the cylinder. Remove the two bolts that hold it in place, and replace it witht he new one.

I have a 1999 Old Silhouette Brake Warning Light


The front pads are worn down which makes the brake fluid fill up the void the brake pads are missing now due to wear. Replace the brake pads and brake rotors if the rotors are worn too, then top off the brake fluid if needed. You can top of the break fluid for now, but that's just going to turn off your break light warning till you breaks wear it self down to the point you damage the brake rotors.

Have the brake pads replaced and inspect the brake rotors, if your good with common tools you can do this job your self in under 1 hour. Tools you need is a jack, 15mm socket, ratchet, screw driver and a clamp. The Clamp is optional, you can get the brake pads at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and good luck.

Hard to push brake pedal down to stop.


1. Check brake fluid level and look for leaks in the brake lines and at the calipers.
2. Bleed the brake fluid completely and replace with fresh fluid (google search: how to bleed brakes). Then bleed air by having someone press the brake pedal 4-5 times, then press and hold while you open the bleed valve and close when fluid streams out. start with the rear wheel (if 4wheel disc brakes) then move to the front.
3. Replace Master Cylinder (sorry, but if 1 or 2 didn't fix it, this is the last option) This is usually over $150, and will involve step 2 again when completed.

Good luck, hope this helps.

It looks like one of your break lines have gone bad and needs to be replaced. It's more common for the one of the front brake lines to have gone bad, replace both sides, flush out the brake fluid and bleed the system to ensure there is no air in the lines. You can go to Auto Zone to buy the new brake lines and they will also have the step by step instructions for you the get the job done. Note: locate where the leak is coming from to ensure that it's not a bad brake Cylinder at the rear brakes, of one of the front brake caliper's, or the master cylinder. Regardless Auto will have all the parts and step by step instructions so you can get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor!


I have changed brake pads before and did not lose any fluid but air can get in the lines. Brake fluid is not compressible while air is, so if you get air in your lines it compresses when you hit the pedal there fore the pedal goes down to floor and your brakes dont grab that good. You can either bleed the brakes your self by starting at the wheel furthest away from the brake fluid reservoir and unscrewing bleeder hose and letting the fluid just bleed out. (get something to catch it and dispose of it properly). Make sure you keep the reservoir under your hood full of brake fluid while letting the other stuff by tires bleed out. Work your way from the furthest tire first and the closest one to the reservoir last. GOODLUCK!
