I would pinch off all lines, then check the pedal, if you got good pedal then you know master is bled right. Next pull one clamp at a time and check pedal again till you find the one with air in it still.

Soft brakes


You have a leak in the brake system, need to check the medal brake lines that run through the frame rail and goes to the back wheels, It is common for those to rust into towards the back. If lines are okay then check the wheel cylinders. If you are not low on brake fluid then you probley have a bad master cylinder.

Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, will slow the car a little, but wont fully brake. master cylinder is fine, calipers and pads are new, brake lines look okay, it's holding brake fluid fine, lines...


must be something you have overlooked. clamp off the front brake hoses and rear hose. if you dont have the propper clamps use g clamps or locking pliars. try the pedal then. if it still goes to the floor its either air in the lines or the master cylinder is no good..Bleed the master cylinder at the lines first,then work back.

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 .

I have a 98 plymouth grand voyager. i had to replace the wheel cylinder. after that I had to replace the master cylinder. it was bled and had a good brake pedal. (keep in mind, no lose of fluid) it set...


If you hear air, it is probably a failed diaphram in your booster. When you say you had good pedal, that was with engine off, right. Then, with engine on it goes to the floor. Does it still go to the floor with engine off? If no, it is the booster. Let me know if this isn't it or you have more questions.

Brake Pedal goes to the floor in my 1990 Chevy C1500 Scottsdale


do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.
