Sounds like it is either your master cylinder, or a combination valve leaking. Unbolt the master cylinder and see if it is wet behind it in the booster.

Why even with new brake parts in the front and rear on my 2995 Ford f150 2wd truck would front brakes work but not back ? I even put truck on bay lift and hit the brakes and rear just kept spinning.


Check your master cylinder. It could be a piece of junk lodged in the fluid port for the rear brake lines, or in the brake line its self. The fact that both rear wheels spin tells me that if it is a clogged line, it is between the two manifolds, (one next to the master cylinder, and the other where the rear brake line splits into two... one for each rear hub. Or it could be that the piston in the master cylinder needs to be replaced. I would disconnect one brake line at one rear wheel and disconnect the rear brake line at the manifold (near the master cylinder)and blow that line out with air pressure. . do not leave the rear brake line connected to the master cylinder as you blow air through the lines as you may damage the master cylinder piston packings. You'll have to bleed the brakes when you are done.

I have a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer. I had a leaking brake line in the front passenger side, it broke. The pedal was completely to the floor and I lost almost all of my fluid. We replaced the brake line but...

when bleeding brakes after a major failure you have to start at the longest line first and work your way back to the shortest to get results . You have 2 systems in your car that maintains brakes in the event of what has happened so you have to ensure that the master cylinder is working for both sections and not one piston only. IF you are not ok with the procedure then a mobile mechanic with experience on your vehicle will be the safest option .

Replaced some brake line, rear pads and one rear wheel cylinder. Now no pressure and nothing happening when trying to bleed.

Does the car have ABS ? And does it have an equalizer block for the 4 wheels ?
It sounds like the ABS has been affected, or there is an equalizer block that is stuck on the front wheels only.
Can you open the bleeder or the rear line on the master cyl and get fluid to come out by depressing the pedal ?

1998 ford f150 4x4 5.4L Have changed the master cylinder and bled all of the lines and checked everything for a leak and still no brake pressure. what do i do?

When you changed the master cylinder did you bench bleed it if you didn;t there is air traper in it You need to take it back off you;ll need alittle kit there cheap screw lines inthe kit in to the side of the cylinder where the brake lines go put the hoses from the kit on the connectors then put the other end inside the master res Pht the cylinder in a vice fill if with fluid then take something that fits into the back of the cylinder and push and relese until you can see now more air bubbles coming from the hoses Reinstall and rebleed your brakes

1999 daewoo matiz has lost brakes fluid has leaked out. what is the most likely cause?

You must look for 'wet' areas under the car to determine where a brake line may be leaking fluid. This can be caused by corrosion (metal brake lines rusting away), or damage, if the car ran over some debris in the road. The front brakes have flexible rubber lines attached at the wheels, so the car can turn, and the lines 'flex' or move. The rubber can deteriorate over time, causing cracks that can leak fluid. So, you must be a detective and examine the underside of the car to determine where the leak is. If you can't find any evidence, the last thing to check is the master brake cylinder, mounted on the firewall. If the seals go bad, you should notice leakage, usually only visible inside the car, under the dash where the brake pedal meets the master cylinder.
