Question about Cars & Trucks
Change the the brake booster still no brakes
Well the brake booster evidently wasn't the problem. If the brake booster is bad the brake pedal will be hard. Since you have a soft brake pedal and providing there are no leaks in the system and your not really loosing fluid, I would suggest the master cylinder being bad. It doesn't look like you purchased a bosster/master cylinder assembly together as sometimes that's the way you can purchase the booster. Just remeber in the future a hard brake pedal is the a booster problem (in most cases). Hope this helps....

How did you bleed your brakes or did you even do that? their should be a little nipple on your calipers or even the brake booster to bleed the system.

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.

do u have the antilock brake bleeding tool? if not you will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, the ABS control valve must be electricaly held open to bleed the brakes there of course is a special tool for this.
