If you have bled it out. Pump up the brake and hold pressure on it. If the pedal still goes down slowly, replace the master cylinder. If it goes down fast, check for leaks. Front to back. No leaks, replace the master cylinder. They seals are shot inside of it.

Sounds like you need to bleed the brakes. Or bleed then a little more.

Brakes not working


The front portion of the reservoir has fluid used for the front brakes which provide the majority of the vehicles stopping power. There is a valve that is supposed to shift to isolate the front and rear brakes when this occurs but it doesn't always work as designed. You have lost all the fluid in the front brake system. This is due one of these possible issues:

Broken brake line
Broken brake hose from line to caliper
Leaking caliper seal

You need to find and repair the leak, refill and bleed the front brake system to get the vehicle back in service. IT IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE IN ITS CURRENT STATE!!!

When truck is off,pedal is hard. after starting, pedal goes to floor. replaced master cylinder,bled brakes. changed front and rear pads.


I would inspect the brake booster for vacuum leak. When the booster is not working you get a hard pedal, yet when you start the vehicle the pedal will hit the floor because of the damaged diaphram inside the brake booster.

I have a brake line leaking from the back but I need to pinch it off so I can drive it to the garage for repairs , what line do I pinch off from the master cylinder so I just have front brakes.


Tricky and risky ,and if garage is not to far away, use the parking brake and brake pedal at low speeds to stop. Taking out of gear at stops at a light or crossing/stop sign. Otherwise, cap and plug the main line at rear axle brake tee spliter from front.

Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.


First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

Brake problems


Thank you for allowing me to assist you, Before we do anyhing, I need some additional information.
Please respond to the following 5 questions so that I may be able to help you better.
Is you vehicle front disc/rear drum or front disc/rear disc?
When were the brakes changed last?
If so, front or rear?
If you apply the park brake, does the vehicle move at all when you put it in gear?
Finally, I am understanding that the brake pedal goes to the floor, you have no resistance on the pedal, and the vehicle does not stop when applying the brakes. Da?
