Brake booster


are you getting a spongy feeling & no brakes? first answer these questions & it may solve your problem as boosters rarely fail


Did you bleed the brakes?


Did you bench bleed the master cylinder ? if not you can bleed the brakes for a year and never get a pedal.


to bleed the master remove it from the car just the master not the booster. clamp it good in a vise ,you should have gotten a bleeder kit with the new one , 2 hoses and a couple of fittings, find the fitting that fits, tighten it hand tight attach the hoses to the fittings and place the other end of the hoses in the master below the fluid line ,take a phillips screwdriver and pump the plunger on the master untill you see no more bubbles, leave the hoses attached intill you reinstall it. attach the brake lines and bleed the brakes starting with the passenger side rear , the driver side rear , passenger front ,driver front, in that order. good luck.

I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra V8 4 wheel drive. I just replace new rotor,caliper(old and rusted), and brake pads( front left/right wheel). 1) My friend and I bleed the brake line. I pumped the brake pedal...


Bleed the new caliper again and see if you have ABS. Sometimes those units gave to be bled too. Also check your manual or look online to verify the sequence for bleeding. Keep the master cylinder full through the entire process. If it drops too low, you likely pulled air into the lines and need to start over.

Soft, squishy brake pedal after bleeding the brakes on my 88' chevy 1/2 ton.I put new calipers in the front, and there are no leaks. what could cause this?


soft, squishy is air. I know you said that you bled the brakes, but i have had this time and time again, and until i have physically seen someone attempt to bleed the brakes i know why...........

let me give you a hint that i do, forget the one man bleeding kits, they are good for what they are designed for, trying to do everything yourself, which you cant...sometimes you need other peoples help.

1. open the farther most bleed nipple, and pump SLOWLY 4-5 times, close nipple on last down stroke.

2. assistant pump up the brakes

3. as assistant holds pedal, release bleed nipple, and before he/she gets to full travel, close the nipple (this will prevent air entry- as it acts like a vaccuum)

4. repeat 3-4 times

5. do the same at opposite end, working your way to the bleed nipple thats closest to the master cylinder.

NOTE : I am assuming that nothng was wrong with the brakes before-hand

Brakes squishy no leak


Mushy / squishy brakes are usually caused by the brake master cylinder seals failing. You can buy a rebuild kit or a re-built replacement master cylinder. I would recommend the rebuilt master cylinder as all the detail work has already been accomplished and it is not a huge expense. The key is to make sure that your use a bleeder kit to "Pre-bleed" the master kit before installation. Your making sure that the master cylinder is free of air before installation. If you instal it with air in the system it wil take you the better part of a quart of brake fluid to bleed the whole brake system via the wheel cylinders. What will happen is after you install the master cylinder the brakes would still be mushy and until you got the residual air out of all of the lines it would appear and act just like it did before you changed the master cylinder.

How do I bleed air from the brakes


Two persons are required: one to bleed and other to press brake pedal.
Remove wheel and hub of the side you want to bleed. You will find the bleed nut there. Open it a little until some oil flows out. Ask the other person to press brake pedal with steady pushing and withdrawing until he feels its tight while you slowly tighten the nut. Adjust tightness of pedal by trial. Don't forge to refill the brake fluid after bleeding all the brakes.

Do give my solution the highest rating if it solves your problem. Thank you for using fixya!

Brake problem (squishy sound)


A sound like that that you can hear inside has to be the vacumn assist tank leaking air. Did you bleed the new master cyl ?

1998 chevy C-1500 brake problems


Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
Good luck!

u need two people in order to bleed brakes one person pumps the brake pedal 6 times and holds it down until the other person unscrews the small bolt on the brake caliper and when the pedal sinks all the way down the other person screws back the caliper screw not too tight then repeat the same process 10 times until the brake feels right.

good luck
