You probably just need to bleed the brake fluid. Look up how to bleed brakes. It's good to bleed out all the old brake fluid with new fluid every 5 years of when you get new brakes installed. A shop can go to quickly for you.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal sinks to floor

Unless you have bled the slave cylinder properly there will still be air in it. However I think the problem is in the clutch master cylinder ---piston rubbers leaking fluid back to reservoir. Replace the m/cyl with new item and bleed out correctly.

My 1995 manual mazda astina horn keeps beeping when i step on the brake? The clutch seems to be sinking into the floor. Are these related and how do i stop my car beeping at innocent people?


Hi, it sounds like you have air getting into your clutch slave cylinder as thats what causes the pedal to sink to the floor when you have air in the system . As for the horn your brake pedal could be touching a bare horn cable that must be some were on the car floor or outside the car . You will have to check inside and out side for a bare wire next to the brake pedal.

`How do I determine if the brake master cylinder is failing ? No fluid leaks brakes do not pump up when bleeding system,recently brake pedal stayed down to floor, pulled back up with my foot.


If there are no external brake fluid leaks, continued application of pressure on the brake pedal will see the pedal sink to the floor if the MC is faulty and needs to be replaced. This will be due to significant wear inside the MC in the bore and on the pistons.

ABS warning light ON; brake pedal sinks to floor when applied; total loss of braking.


Your ABS light is on because the system detected a failure in the brake system. Sounds like either your master cylinder is bad or one of your brake lines has ruptured. Usually a master cylinder seal will degrade over time, not insantly. In a dual master cylinder configuration like all newer vehicles, you should still have some braking, even if a front or rear line ruptures. 1st step, check your fluid level.

Power failure when braking problem


sounds like your power assist vacuum unit is dead. i.e. your power brakes. pump your brake pedal 3 times and hold it. turn on engine-if the pedal sinks to floor its the brake master cylinder, if it pulses and comes up with your foot on it its its neither but if it stays right where it is>? BINGO-power assist! good luck.

My 2000 toyota caldina (gtt) has problems with the brake system.it has had the brake pads replaced and calipers bleed but the pedal keeps sinking to the floor


Repair or replace the brake master cylinder. An internal seal has given out, leaking back into the cylinder, allowing pedal to keep traveling to floor.

Brakes sink to the floor


by stating that your pedal sinks to the floor, you leave 3 options open 1.) the master cylinder seal is bypassing allowing the fluid to bleed by the proper correction is to rebuild the master cylinder.
2. One of your drum brakes has a wheel cylinder that has failed causing a noticable behind the tire leak (most common) correction is to replace all brake hardware and wheel cylinder.
3. One of the brake lines is cracked,broken, inspect for leaks and replace with new line.
4. notice on disc brakes if a brake caliper fails (part that squeezes brake pads to rotor) you will have the same symptoms of a broken wheel cylinder, this would of gradually occured feeling a heavy pedal or pulsation.
