Soft pads will brake well but wear quicker and create more brake dust. Hard pads will last longer but will wear the disc.

Brake pedal is hard when vehicle is not running,but is soft when the 2005GMC Envoy is running.changed the brakes and rotors?


This sounds like a vacuum or hydrolic issue. If The pedal is spongy soft while its running it indicates air in the brake line, or faulty master cylinder, or faulty brake booster. A faulty master cylinder would get hard after a few pumps of the pedal. Since the pedal is hard when it is shut down, it makes me lean toward the brake booster.

1999 dodge durango soft brake pedal only wen i start it


have someone have there foot on the brake & start vehicle, inspect the flexible brakelines to see if any are balooning out. You could also clamp off one flexible line at a time & press brake & when you find the brake at fault the pedal will go hard.

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...


it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

I am working on a 2004 dodge caravan with a soft brake problem.i have replaced the rear shoes and adjusted rear brakes,also replaced front rotors and pads.i have also replaced the master cylinder.after...


try bleeding the master cylinder at the lines first as it indicates that there is still air in the pistons
loosen one line at a time and gently apply the brakes until any air bubbles come out tighten the line before releasing the brake pedal
do it for the other line and then bleed all the brakes starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest line

Brakes and calipers were changed and brakes were bleed but when you start the car the pedal goes to the floor and has no brakes


check and make sure there are no leaks, if no leaks are found and system was bleed real good!! then you might have a bad master cylinder, was this problem there before brake job ,if yes and you never had to add fluid then its a master cylinder,fi everything was good before brake job, then something went wrong. hope this helps good luck.

Master cylinder out


check all cylinders, the MC is only one of the components that operates with brake fluid, you have brake calipers that can leak and also wheel cylinders on the rear of cars equipped with rear drum brakes.. check all of these for brake fluid seepage.. reapir as needed... also check for air in the system if the system has been opened recently or any recenmt service...

Brakes pedal gets hard sometimes while driving and then it would come back soft and nice.This is on a nissan sunny 2005 car. Kindly explain. Thank you


this problem is caused by a vacuum leak inside the power brake vacuum booster unit (rubber diaphram), here is a photo of that part which is under the hood, the brake master cylinder is mounted to it.

Back brakes do not work


You need to bleed the rear brakes to remove all air so they will work. Start w/ the wheel the greatest distance from the master cylinder, check master cyl. level often, if you draw in air, you have to start all over again. Repeat 'til all air is removed from system.

1998 chevy s10- brake pedal goes to the floor- just changed master cylinder, brake booster, and bled brake lines- did not help


Ok the BRAKE BOOSTER is ONLY there to give you pwer assisted, otherwise NO POWER BRAKES. ( not anything to do with the low brake pedal ) Hopefully the junkyard master cylinder was in better shape than your original. AS far a bleedinda system, heres what I do. First with a1998 vehicle, I would go to ALL 4 wheels , OPEN & CLOSE slightly each bleeder to insure none of them are FROZEN, and they do freeze shut ENSUE THE MASTER CYLINDER IS FULL and CLOSED Now with an assistant sitting in the drivers seat, ready to pump the brakes, and ABLE TO HEAR YOU. Go to the furthest wheel from the master which would be the R/R. DONT touch anything yet. Tell the asst too slowly pump the brake pedal till it gets hard, and then HOLD THE PEDAL DOWN ( and dont let up on it until the pedal drops. If the ast lets up before the bleeder is closed you **** in air.Repeat at each wheel til the pedal stays hard. Hope this helps

1988 honda prelude brake caliper


You most likely have a problem w/ the brake fluid being contaminated. Have u ever had the brake fluid changed? Everytime u need brakes, u should bleed the brakes to remove the old fluid. This is something most people DO NOT do, and the old fluid ruins the calipers and brake cylinders. Look in the master cylinder at the fluid. Is it dark, or clear? When the fluid goes bad, it'll not be clear. Fluid also absorbs moisture which is terrible for the brake system. Make sure any bottles of brake fluid are closed tightly after opening. Moisture and contaminants will corrode the inside of the calipers and brake cylinders, and the pistons stick and bind, and will finally totally seize up. Flush the system starting at the bleeder that's the greatest distance away from the master cylinder, then next greatest distance, 3rd greatest, then closest. Bleed each wheel until fluid runs out clear, and then a few more times to be sure u flushed it all out. Check the master cylinder often, so u don't run it so low it draws in air, or u will have more bleeding to do to get the air out too. U might be able to dissassemble the caliper if it's very recently changed, clean it up, check for any crud and coat w/ clean fluid, reassemble. Good Luck, let me know how u make out. countrycurt0
