When you say goes to floor is that quickly if so look for a puddle under car after pressing pedal down if not most times if the pedal goes down like sitting at light gradually going down is a sure sign of bad master cylinder

SOURCE: Rusted rear left brake line replaced, fluid

Did you remember to bleed the master cylinder itself? When the master cylinder runs dry you should start bleeding your brake system at the master cylinder and then continue on to each of the four wheel cylinders.

SOURCE: brakes and calipers were changed and brakes were

Was the pedal ok (not going to the floor) before the brake job? If it was, there is probably still air in the system. Did you bleed the brakes starting with the bleeder that is the greatest distance away from the master cylinder, and continue to the next greatest distance, and finish with the bleeder that is the closest to the master cyl? Hope this helps, if not let me know, I'll try to help further.

SOURCE: We replaced the front and rear brakes and now when

Does the vehicle have rear drum brakes? If so, then check the brake shoe adjustment. The hold off valve will not allow the front brakes to apply until the rear brakes begin to apply. The drums should fit closely to the shoes. A brake shoe adjustment gauge is available at most part stores. You can also use a tape measure. Measure the shoes from the outside of one lining to the other. Now, measure the inside diameter of the drum. This measurement should be slightly larger than the shoe measurement. If it isn't, then adjust the shoes until it is.

SOURCE: proper way to bleed brake lines and system

First check your level in the brake fluid reservoir. If full, then you will need to pull off one tire at a time to bleed the brakes. There will be a bleeder valve on each caliper. Open the valve and pump the brakes until hard and hold, to get air out of the system. Then close the valve. I usually use a clear tube attached to the valve so that I can make sure I got all the air out of the line. Once air is gone, do the other side. Make sure to keep brake fluid full in reservoir to prevent air from reentering the brake lines.

You need to check wheel cylinders, the only way that the brake peddle will go to the floor like that is if there is a lose of fluid pressure somewhere .

With motor running, brake pedal goes to floor and swoosh of air is heard


Could be brake booster leaking. When engine is off the brake pedal should be firm and not go to the floor. If the pedal goes to the floor engine off, there may be a master cylinder problem also.
