Check to see if brake fluid is being sucked from the master cylinder into the brake booster.

SOURCE: Problem with brakes

It sounds very much like you just installed another bypassing master cylinder. No leaks and you got all the air out, bled the new master & all wheels...Go back there I'll bet it'a no good.

SOURCE: losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

SOURCE: brake fluid leaking out the back left tire area

This could from a busted piston in the brake caliper (if equipped with rear disc brakes) but more common is the copper washer/seal to the line thats bolted on. Make sure the washers on the connection are good, never hurts to replace them since you will already have it off and they are dirt cheap. hope this helps!

You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

I have a 96 f150 4x4 i hve bleed the brakes over and over and the pedal justs goes to the floor when runing


You need to have the ABS hydraulic control block bleed, that takes a special tool only the dealer or a well equipped brake shop has. You can't do this at home the tool cost a bloody fortune.

Brakes go all the way to the floor,no pressure to stop them


Check your brake fluid level . Need to see if it low . if so on dry payment fill the fluid and put the cap back on . then have someone start the car and pump the brake peddle as you are looking under it for leaks. If there is fluid leaking under the car the i would say its a brake line or brake hose problem . if there is no leak seen then i would suspect the master cylinder is at fault . the master has seals in side of it and if they wear they can by pass fluid which in turn would cause a peddle issue

My brake light has gone on and stayed on twice in the past three months. When I take it to the garage, they add brake fluid. Why does the car seem to be losing brake fluid?


well if you are losing fluid you definatly have a leak as brake fluid is not a "topping off fluid". you could have a leaking master cylinder either externaly which can be seen on brake booster or it can be leaking into the brake booster filling it with fluid. other than that you also may be leaking from your brake hoses(one hose at each wheel), calipers(front wheels and rear if all wheel disc brakes), wheel cylinders (if you have rear drum brakes), or metal brake lines due to rust and corrosoin (run from master cylinder to each brake hose). please rate 4 thumbs if helpful.

My brake pedal is on the floor and the brake fluid continuously goes low. It seems like the vacuum pressure never builds to keep the pedal off of the floor. Any ideas?


You will need to carefully inspect the entire brake system for leaks. Inspect the front calipers, rear wheel cylinders, all the hoses, the back of the master cylinder, and steel lines. If something looks wet or drips brake fluid it is leaking. If you haven't seen any brake fluid dripping from under the car my first thought is that the rear wheel cylinders are leaking.

If the pedal went to the floor and you didn't have to add fluid than you would more than likely have a bad master cylinder but since you are adding fluid there is a leak somewhere.

Brakes have a mushy to floor response


usually an indicator of either a loss of pressure due to low fluid and/or air in the system (brake fluid leak) or extremely worn rear brakes (if drum brakes in rear). possible causes include master cylinder (internal fluid pressure leak), external fluid leaks (calipers, lines, wheel cylinders), rear drum brakes extremely worn down or severely out of adjustment. normally worn disc brakes may reduce pedal height SOME, but seldom "to floor". but the "mushy" quote combined with the "floor" quote suggests a hydrolic fluid pressure problem.

Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.


First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)
