Question about 1993 Volvo 940

1 Answer

Soft brake pedal

1993 volvo 940 wagon. My brake pedal is feeling softer than usual. It takes quite a bit of time to stop the car. The master cylinder was replaced, all wheels bled and it is still feeling like I need to pull the hand brake to get the car to stop the way it should...LOL. The shop that replaced the master cylinder told me I needed to replace the ABS pump but could not offer any good reason why. I've never had any abs warning lights come on an all the sensors are fine. I hope someone has seen this problem before. Thanks Ken

Brake problem


Usually if the booster fails, the pedal is very hard to push enough to make the vehicle stop.
If the pedal sinks or is soft, the master cylinder is allowing fluid to bypass the pistons inside.

1996 Suburban. Does the brake pedal gradually go all the way to the floor if the problem was worn brake pads ????


no worn pads do not cause a sinking pedal, you have a defective brake master cylinder, the seals inside the master cylinder are leaking

I just replaced my front rotors, pads, and calipers on a 98 olds achieva. After doing this I bled the the front brakes but am now experiencing a very soft pedal. I am wondering if something else could be...


Because of the ABS system if you press the brake pedal with too much pressure then it will give you the illusion of a soft pedal. Does it feel like a soft pedal when the vehical is in motion and you then press on the brake pedal (normal)? The other thing is if your pads and/or caliper were frozen, when you changed them out. The brakes are not going to feel or brake exactly the same, after the repair. But you are there, if the pedal is real low or goes to the floor then there is still air in the system or for some reason, your master cylinder is defective.
