LOW BRAKE PEDAL ON 4 WHEEL DISK BRAKES

I BOUGHT A 2007 CHEVY TRAILBLAZER ON 5-5-09. THE PEDAL GOES DOWN ABOUT HALF WAY TO THE FLOOR AND FEELS A LITTLE SPONGY. I THOUGHT I COULD GET THE REAR WHEEL DRUM BRAKES ADJUSTED BUT FOUND OUT I HAD 4 WHEEL DISKS. I LIKE THE PEDAL TO GO DOWN ABOUT 2-3 INCHES WHEN APPLIED. THIS ONE GOES ABOUT 6-7 INCHES. DOES THE SYSTEM NEED BLEEDING OR MORE WORK ??

Check the pads/rotors to see if they need to be replaced.
Check the brake fluid level. If low it could mean the pads/rotors need to be replaced. If replacing also replace the brake fluid.
Two years probably means you need a brake job.

Otherwise you may have air in the brake lines which you can bleed off.

2003 Chevy Trailblazer brake pedal not releasing. When turning and brakes tapped briefly they continue to brake until complete stop. When stopped and foot off brake 10 sec delay before pedal releases


Sounds like your ABS unit on its way out.
with the engine off, pump the pedal till its hard. keep your foot on the pedal pushed down and start the engine. your pedal should become light and continue down to the "floor".

Breaks go to the floor


Then you have a massive leak somewhere as the brake peddle should not go all the way to the floor without some low break fluid indication. I would check brakes at each wheel as something isn't right or your not seeing it. Have someone pump the pedal and look to see if after the wheel is removed that the brake actually tightens and loosens. Remember that 4 wheels means 4 brakes, but master brake cylinder (where you add brake fluid) could be bad.

Brakes are hydraulic. pedal going right to the floor indicates either brake fluid is too low and air got in the system, or your master cylinder is defective. if air is in system due to low fluid, you will need to bleed the brake lines.

2003 chevy impala brake pedal goes to floor when sitting at a complete stop


First, check your brake fluid levels, if it is low then that enplanes your problem. Also, when was the last time you had the brakes changed? if the are worn down, then this will also cause a low fluid level. if the brakes are fine and the fluid level is good and you still have the same issue, then your problem is probably your master cylinder. Brake boosters hardly ever go bad.

My brakes feel spongy when i brake. when i pump the brakes with the car not running after 3 or 4 pumps the pedal feels firm but when i start the car the pedal goes to the floor


1.Check the brake fluid under the hood ,and if its low ,add more .
2.If its not that, look under the car to see if you have any brake fluid leaks,main areas to look is
around the wheels on the back side of the tires where the bleeding nuts are and under the motor where the brake cylider is. You may have a hole in the brake line located in those area.

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums


start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Spongy brake pedal


I have a 2001 Chevy 1500 4 X 4 that recently had all new pads, rotors, and calipers installed. Since then my brake pedal goes almost to the floor before I get any brakes. I took it back to the shop and they bled the brakes with no better results. I bled them also with no results. I took the truck back and they installed a master cylinder with no results. It's now at the Chevy dealer and they say it's normal - BS! I had good brakes before I had all of the brake parts replaced, no one can figure it out. If you have a load in the truck or if you tow anything you better be looking at the ditch to avoid an accident. The original brakes would put you nose into the windshield and now I could stop it better the Fred Flinstone way. Anyone have an answer????????

1998 chevy s10- brake pedal goes to the floor- just changed master cylinder, brake booster, and bled brake lines- did not help


Ok the BRAKE BOOSTER is ONLY there to give you pwer assisted, otherwise NO POWER BRAKES. ( not anything to do with the low brake pedal ) Hopefully the junkyard master cylinder was in better shape than your original. AS far a bleedinda system, heres what I do. First with a1998 vehicle, I would go to ALL 4 wheels , OPEN & CLOSE slightly each bleeder to insure none of them are FROZEN, and they do freeze shut ENSUE THE MASTER CYLINDER IS FULL and CLOSED Now with an assistant sitting in the drivers seat, ready to pump the brakes, and ABLE TO HEAR YOU. Go to the furthest wheel from the master which would be the R/R. DONT touch anything yet. Tell the asst too slowly pump the brake pedal till it gets hard, and then HOLD THE PEDAL DOWN ( and dont let up on it until the pedal drops. If the ast lets up before the bleeder is closed you **** in air.Repeat at each wheel til the pedal stays hard. Hope this helps
