It needs a master cylinder. The only other thing it could be is if you have an exhaust leak, boiling the brake fluid, but this would happen as you drive it, not just sitting there, without it running

More info is needed but air in the system will cause this. No insult intended but the fluid went somewhere.How low are the pads.

There could be air along the fluid hoses. try to bleed where you have last change some parts of your brakes.
or the pump itself could already have worn-out gasket.

It could be, you might be loosing brake fluid into the booster. If you are loosing fluid it has to be going somewhere. I would suggest making a clean spot and parking the fork truck there overnight, then look for wet spots under it in the morning, that should give you and idea where the fluid is coming from.

You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

Brake pedal goes down to the floor to make it stop


check first the brake fluid reservoir to see if it is full, then bleed the brakes if the petal will not come up.

While driving the !P Brake light came on and now brake pad only stops when pushed all the way down to the floor.


First check your brake fluid level...this is the first symptom of low brake fluid pressure...If the fluid is still full, then no brake pedal pressure means bad master cylinder...or leak in brake lines or connections...should be able to trace...Not a fun problem...safe brakes are a priority...hopefully just low fluid...fill to full mark...:)

My brake pedal is on the floor and the brake fluid continuously goes low. It seems like the vacuum pressure never builds to keep the pedal off of the floor. Any ideas?


You will need to carefully inspect the entire brake system for leaks. Inspect the front calipers, rear wheel cylinders, all the hoses, the back of the master cylinder, and steel lines. If something looks wet or drips brake fluid it is leaking. If you haven't seen any brake fluid dripping from under the car my first thought is that the rear wheel cylinders are leaking.

If the pedal went to the floor and you didn't have to add fluid than you would more than likely have a bad master cylinder but since you are adding fluid there is a leak somewhere.

When I put my foot on the brake the pedal goes all the way to the floor, but the car stops. The brake light does not show as a problem on the dash board.


This is a very dangerous situation.
First check under the hood at the Master cylinder reservoir. This contains the reservoir of brake fuid for your hydraulic braking system. It has marking on how full it should be. Use DOT-3 brake fluid for regular passenger cars. Fill the reservoir up to the proper mark, and replace the cap. Pump the brake pedal and see if it gets stiffer.
Also see if there are any leaks around the tires, the fluid is supposed to be in a CLOSED system. There should be no leaks.
If air has somehow gotten into the brake fluid system, this can cause VERY serious problem. Fluids (hydraulic) do not compress, but air does. The air will cause the system to act delayed as the air finds a way to release the pressure (ie by moving a brake cylinder) ( hence the late braking)
My suggestion would be, check the reservoir 1st, then take it to a shop and have the brakes bled.
No side trips, straight to the shop!!!!!

Brake problem with 95 ford bronco


does it still brake when the pedal goes to the floor. my guess is it is leaking fluid out of the rear brake cylinder. the rear brake cylinders are in side the drums so you may not notice a leak there.i would take off both rear wheels and take the drums off and see if there is a leak out of the seal on the brake cylinder. that is a fairly common problem with all drum brakes and the cylinders are only about 12 bucks at napa.

Brake pedal will go all the way to the floor


make sure brake fluid is full. then pump brakes for one minuite check the fluid to see if it went down or stayed full. if it went down then check the system for a leak . if it stays full then you will need a new mastercylender . i dont think you have a vacum problem cause this causes a verry stiff brake pedal not one that goes to the floor
