I have a 91 explorer and have lost brake pressure, at first it was requiring a lot of brake fluid and that would fix it for a day or 2 then no brake pressure again so I replaced the master cylinder and it...


may I know if you feel very hard to push the brake pedal? if so , there must be the problem of power brake booster. it is leaked and lack of pressure. or you have bad and weared brake pads.

Cluch pedal lost pressure


The clutch master cylinder reservoir is on the firewall under hood near the brake master cylinder. It has a round black screw on cap as I recall. Use Dot 3 or 4 brake fluid.

My brakes wont stop the car refilled brake fluild but brake pedal still is too loose what is the problem?


you may have a bad caliper leaking if you had to add fluid. you have lost the pressure in the brake system to stop the vehicle.

I was driving it and i pressed the brake and all of a sudden the brake pedal and clutch pedal both went down a piece by the pedal broke an now it wont go in to gear


Hi

the Hydrolic clutch has failed by the sound of it, the clutch on his car shares fluid with the brakes hence why both pedals went down. you might be lucky and the slave cylinder might have failed or lost pressure, this in fact is very common on this car.

Have the slave cylinder checked out and look under the car for any fluid leaks

2000 silverado brake work good 90% of the time, but the odd time the pedal goes to the floor, and in the last second the abs kicks in. Then they work good again for a while. Could it be the booster, I...


may i suggest your problem is the brake master cylinder is faulty ie the line pressure is being lost due to fault on seal that is supposed to maintain brake pipes/line pressure when pedal is off resulting in brake pedal intermittantly going to floor but if you pump pedal it comes back ? the fact you mention you drained master cyl ? reservoir ?? and fluid was dirty ? assume you bled all brakes to flush b/system too ? the fluid being dirty is a clear indication that the seals on m/cyl pistons are deteriated and allowing fluid to pass seals and cause pedal to travel further SO best advice is to replace the master cyl as repair kits/seals are hard to come by these days then use new fluid and bleed all brakes/cyl's hope this helps ?

Unless you really know what you are doing it is best to get a mechanic to repair this. People's lives and safety are at risk and you could be held legally if something went wrong with your repair job. I would not touch it.
