Changed master cylinder but brakes are still


Just a question. Did you remove all brake fluid from the system, and replace it with new? Did you replace it with 2 persons? One is pressing the brakes and one opening the plug close to the brake cylinder, till all old fluid and air is out?
After a few years the fluid needs to be replaced, but do it the right way. And as soon as he motor is running, the brakes should feel spongy.
Switch of the motor, then press the brake pedal several times, till it feels hard. Then with your foot on the brake pedal, start the motor en it should go down and feel somewhat soft.

When I stomp on my brakes let's say in an emergency the pedal is very hard and the brakes don't realy work at all but if I use them normally they are perfect it's on a ford au xr6 ute


to test your brake assist is working. stop the motor. Press w few times the brakes, till the pedal feels sturdy. Then while pressing the pedal down firmly, start the engine. When you feel the pedal going down, like feeling "soft" you know the brake assist works. If nothing changes it is defect.

Brakes


If the brake pedal has normal resistance when you press on it, the brake pads need to be replaced for $100 at a place like Brakes Plus, because the pads have become worn or glazed.

If the brake pedal feels soft and mushy, the same repair shop will bleed the air out of the brake lines with fresh fluid for $30.

2004 Jetta brake problem


If the fluid was really low you most likely need brake pads replaced, if the pedal is soft you need a master cylinder.

My brake peddel is spongee-soft, and goes to the floor if i prees hard?


when you push pedal hard & pedal goes to floor does brake light come on?
assuming brake fluid leval is ok & didnt run empty have you checked for a leak?
pulling all wheels & inspecting brakes,cylinders, calipers,& lines for leaks.
does the pedal pump up & feel ok with engine running?if so there is air in the system
if it does'nt change the way the pedal feels & no leaks are found & brake linings are ok & adjusted
properly than your master cylinder is leaking internally & needs to be replaced

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...


it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

Why is the break sometimes high and sometimes low


not sure if you mean while driving or when parked with the ignition off but here are a couple reasons on why the brake pedal may be high and low at different times. If the vehicle is running the brake pedal will feel the same just about every time. If the car is off and you step on the brakes it will get harder and harder to push down since there is no vacuum assist. Another reason would be the brake pad thickness. New brakes the pedal will feel higher where as worn brake pads the pedal may feel lower. Another reason would be if you have air in the brake lines. this will make the pedal feel mushy and soft at first and firm up as you pump the brakes. Hope this helps.

Brake pedal feels soft


I would have the brakes checked they may be low and need replacing, another thing is if the caliper slides are sticking and not allowing the caliper to move freely this will also cause a soft pedal because the caliper piston now needs to travel more before the pad hits the rotor so start with a brake inspection.

I have a 2000 chevy blazer. had to short fix left rear brake line with hose and clamps. bled air from that side, brakes were soft in the pedal. checked right rear for any air had none. brakes still feel...


do not drive the vehicle. remove the hoze. replace it with steel line. rubber hoses are not meant for the high pressures of brake lines. it is expanding when you press the brake pedal. very unsafe.
