Brake booster just helps lessen the effort to stop. You either have air in your system or a leaking line \,or caliper cylinder or wheel cylinder, look along frame rails and the inside of tires or wheels after pumping and holding the brake pedal. If there is no leak your master brake cylinder is bad and fluid by passing the seals.

SOURCE: 1998 chevy s10- brake pedal goes to the floor-

Did you put fresh fluid in the master cylinder? I really think you still have air in the lines. To bleed manually, start with the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, car running, helper pushing down about half way on brake pedal and releasing 3 times, on 3rd time, holding pedal down to half way depressed point while you open the bleeder valve. Repeat until you are sure all air has been flushed out. Check master cyl reservoir level often, because if it gets low and you **** air into the system, you have to start all over again. Go to wheel next greatest distance from master cyl, repeat above, working your way to wheel closest to master cyl last.

SOURCE: replacing my brake booster

go to the master cylinder and remove it from the booster, disconnect the vacuum line from the booster, then disconnect the brake plunger from your brake pedal inside the vehicle, then remove the booster mounting bolts from inside the vehicle then remove the booster, install in reverse order, once you install the master cylinder, you will need to bleed out any air in the brake system, hope this helps, let me know

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

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.

sounds like the brake booster failed ! or the vacuum line to booster. also check for a bad check valve at the booster hose where it goes into booster.

96 e350 replaced master cylinder and proportioning valve,brakes will slowly go to floor as pressure is applied. could booster be bad or rod through booster to master be out of adjustment ??


No they just need bleed, Or another word for getting the air out of the lines. Do this by loseing the brake lines behind the wheel and have someone pump the brakes till full peddal, then hold then losen brake line till nothing comes out but flouid, Do this to each wheel, If take to shop just ask them to bleed your breaks and should'nt cost you over $20. Best of luck to you.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

You changed the master cylinder and vacuum booster and have no leaks anywhere, but did you bleed the entire brake system after you did this work? A little bit of air in any of the lines will make the brakes ineffective.

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...;-)

Just replaced master cylinder on 1990 aerostar and bled the brakes, still the pedal goes to floor and i have no brakes


Did you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it? then when you installed the new master, did you bleed all 4 points? If yes, then check all for points for leaking caliper/s and leaking wheel cylinder/s. If the van has ABS, check the valve body for a bleeder screw and see if air bleeds out of it. If you've checked everything twice and did everything right then your new master cyl. may be defective.
