If you can't compress the piston with reasonable ease...you may have a frozen caliper. It does not "screw in" like GM models. It either presses back into caliper or it doesn't. If it's that hard to press it back in...get a new caliper.

SOURCE: 2005 f150 spongy brakes

it sounds like your still not getting all the air out of your lines. it helps to have a brake bleeder but they are expensive, it also could be that the gasket inside the master cylinder is inverted even if it is a new master cylinder this could be the case, ive had four bad remanned ones in a row, before i got a good one... hope i could help

SOURCE: changed caliper on 2005 ford freestar and now brakes are spongie.

When bleading the brakes have someone there watching to make sure the master cylinder never runs out of brake fluid or all of your time spent bleading them will be waisted.

SOURCE: stuck calipers

Brake lines are not releasing fluid back to master cylinder. Open bleeder and see if wheel will turn. If it does replace brake line to caliper

1984 Honda Accord Brake pedal sunk to the floor and had to push extra hard to stop. Replaced master cylinder and bled brakes but right front had no fluid or air coming though the lines. So I replaced...


The problem is in the master cylinder. The MC is in effect two cylinders in one, one cylinder for the front brakes and one for the rear (one in front of the other). When the MC gets a bit long in the tooth pressure from one cylinder can leak past it's seal into the other cylinder or into the reseviour. The MC is leaking internally, but not externally, so you see no signs of leakage and don't lose any fluid as leaked fluid ends up back in the reseviour. Sometimes the symptom will be evident and other times not, on my car the pedal tends to sink sometimes on hot days but is always firm on cooler days(?). It really is something that does need to be addressed urgently as a matter of safety, because pressure is leaking from one cylinder the pressure in that cylinder won't be high enough. This will affect front to rear brake bias which can have a substantial adverse affect on braking performance, and may cause premature brake lock up at either the front or rear (not sure which end), which could cause loss of control (i.e. massive understeer or oversteer under brakes). $700 does sound at least a bit steep to supply and fit a new MC, and bleed the brakes. Here in Australia new Accord MCs are around AUD$180 or so. The pedal should be quite firm with little free play with a braking system in good condition, if yours typically isn't (before you had that sinking feeling) then the brakes probably need attention (bleeding most likely, but could also be a soft rubber hose, causing the hose to bulge under pressure, not good as it may burst).

Try to bleed the brakes and no fluid comes out.


Try removing the bleeder screw all the way. If fluid now comes out, use paperclip to clear bleeder screw. If still nothing, loosen brake hose at end nearest to MC to see if you get fluid there. If yes, replace brake hose. Still nothing? crimped line between MC and hose, or bad MC or misadjusted linkage from pedal. Pedal must release all the way and have some free play 91/8th inch or so).

2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

Did you bench bleed the MC before installing it? If not, that's the problem. MUST be bench bled or you'll always have air. If brakes lights are on, the brake switch is out of adjustment OR (since you replaced the MC), the push rod is out of adjustment

I would go with not bled correctly

The booster should hold up with a hard pedal until
you start the engine, then vacuum causes it to move
down when pressing on the brake

have you checked the fluid level? Make sure that the master cylinder is full of fluid and that there aren't any puddles of brake fluid under the vehicle. If there are no leaks and the fluid level is ok, I would have to guess that the brakes were not properly and/or completely bled of air. If it feels as if there are no brakes at all then I would have to think it may not have beeen bled period. All 4 wheels, in this case, should be thoroughly bled.

Brakes 350 ford supercab


you have to make very sure that you got all the air out of the system. and make sure that you bled it in the right order. start at the furthest from the MC and work your way toward it. It will take a couple of times. Hopefully when you pushed the piston on the caliper back in you relieved the pressure through the bleed valve cuz if you didn't you can actually ruin the Master Cylinder by blowing out a relief valve by the backflow of the fluid.
