SOURCE: Nov. 94 Grand Cherokee Jeep no back brakes

I bet you still have air back there. If you didn't bleed the system after the master you need to do that. Bench bleeding a master doesn't always work.Also badly out of adjustment rear brakes can act the same way.

SOURCE: Slight air hiss or sucking sound near brake pedal and no

It maybe, I don`t know the vehicle personally but on Trucks and Buses, when this occurs, it usually points to the master cylinder piston seals which moves in and out as the foot pedal is operated. Does the hiss alter as the pedal is pushed down?? Does the hiss reduce or increase as the pedal is pushed down?? If it does, I think you`ll find that it`s this air seal between the piston and cylinder that`s failing and not the servo. Whether you car works the same way, I don`t know but I presume it must. Ian

Why do brakes go to floor but still have light pressure?

It sounds like you have air in your brake lines. This is usually caused by a very low brake fluid in the master cyclinder.
To fix this problem fill up the master cyclinder with brake fluid and bleed the front wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Keep the master cyclinder topped up with brake fluid. Then bleed the rear wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Don't forget to top up the brake fluid in the master cyclinder.

I replaced both front brake calipers in front on 95 concord and there is no brakes now like maybe air is in the system three calipers bleed having problems with front passengers bleeding ?

Try pumping the brakes and bleeding it at the master cyclinder. The air bubbles will eventually work its way up to the master cyclinder, BUT also make sure you keep the master cyclinder toped up on fluid.

sounds like a brake master cyclinder issue ( bad O-rings ). or you have air in the system.
check the brake fluid reservoir and make sure that there is fluid in there,, if there is no fluid - then add fluid and now bleed all the air out of ALL the brake lines. if there is fluid in the reservoir then I would assume that the master cylinder is infact bad and needs to be replaced.

Have a low sinking brake pedal after depressing 1 time? Changed out the master cyclinder?

Sounds like air in system. Bleed entire system starting at master cylinder, and check for any brake fluid leaks.

Brake line broke, replaced it, now I can't get fluid to the bleeders. I hear air but cannot get passed that. Now I have no brakes at all.!!

did you bleed the system good from air pockets...sometimes you have to remove the brake master cyclinder and bench bleed it to get all the air out...but your problem is to much air in system...start with bench bleeding the master cyclinder first.

Cruise control say not working and a symbol of the engine is on it changes gears and everythng fine

You probably have a vacuum leak. First: Check the brake vacuum line from the air intake manifold to the brake servo (black plastic pipe running from top of engine to brake servo with flange in the middle). It may be cracked. When engine at idle listen for leaks. You can run your hand along it to try to feel sucking.
If not that lift the black platic engine cover (3 screws) and look for cracks/leaks in the 1" black house running from front cyclinder bank to air intake manifold. It may be split/sucking air.

You may need to reset the Check engine light. Good luck

No brakes after master cyclinder and booster replacment

To bleed the brake system open all the bleeders and let the system gravity bleed for @ 1/2 hour ensuring the master stays full. Then close all bleeders and starting furthest from the master (r/r) have someone pump the brakes 2-3 times,hold the pedal down, then open the bleeder,close the bleeder,and repeat untill there are no air bubbles and the brake fluid is running clear .Repeat for all wheels in this order R/R L/R R/F L/F ensuring master cykinder does not run empty. You cannot pump the pedal with a bleeder open you will be sucking air back into the system. Once you finish all wheels repeat to ensure there is no air remaining in system.
