None. That's not the way brake plumbing works.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: brake pedal goes to floor on first depression; then pumps up fine

Try this,apply the emergency before stepping on the brake.
If this helps the pedal,the rear brakes are out of adjustment.

What kind of fluid & where do i fill it for the clutch


Most hydraulic clutch systems have a small reservoir near the brake master cylinder that uses DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid. Some systems,however, use the brake master cylinder for the clutch fluid supply.

Replaced some brake line, rear pads and one rear wheel cylinder. Now no pressure and nothing happening when trying to bleed.


Does the car have ABS ? And does it have an equalizer block for the 4 wheels ?
It sounds like the ABS has been affected, or there is an equalizer block that is stuck on the front wheels only.
Can you open the bleeder or the rear line on the master cyl and get fluid to come out by depressing the pedal ?

2000 mercury cougar.....no brake paddle we replaced master cly,booster......what can it be


did you bleed all of the air from the master cylinder before you installed it, this has to be done. also when replacing the master cylinder, all 4 wheel cylinders will have to be bled, in order to get all of the air out of them. while doing the wheel cylinder bleeding , you will have to make sure that the master cylinder doe's not run out of brake fluid, check it each time you bleed a wheel cylinder , add brake fluid to the master cylinder each time or when it is getting low. hope that this has helped you.

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running


Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.

What is the proper way to bleed my rear brakes?


There are to ways to blled your rear brakes first way is a gravity bleed take the top off the master cylinder fill it with brake fluid then open both bleeder screws on the rear once you get a flow of brake fluid coming out you can close them fill up the master and dont forget to pump your brakes before you start the car or you can have someone sit in the car and do the pump down method. Have that person pump the brakes until the pedal is hard tell them to push down on it you open the bleeder screw and the pedal will go to the floor and fluid will come out of the bleeder screw advise that person to not let the pedal go until you close the line once you close the line do it again til you get a straight flow of fluid coming out then repeat the same thing on the other side, Always start on the rear passenger side then the rear drivers side and keep an eye on the master cylinder you dont want to run it dry and when pump bleeding it the top should be on the master. Good luck

How do I check the clutch fluid to a 1999 Mercury Cougar 4cyl


The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.
