Question about 2002 Saturn Sl

2 Answers

When I press the brake pedal on my 2002 Saturn SL the pedal goes almost all the way to the floor before it grabs. If I have to stop quickly, the pedal has to be pushed as far as it will go. I put new rotors and pads on the front but no change. What causes this?

Check brake fluid level. Check rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders for wear or leakage. If all is good ,the master cylinder may have an internal leak.

Brake goes to the floor

when you say goes to floor is that quickly if so look for a puddle under car after pressing pedal down if not most times if the pedal goes down like sitting at light gradually going down is a sure sign of bad master cylinder

How can i bleed the brakes

There is a bleeder screw on all the calipers. Usually its an 8mm size, and would have a rubber boot over it. Starting from the furthest caliper, usually the passenger rear, loosen the screw a 1/4 turn, then have someone press the brake pedal a few times until there is a steady stream of fluid that came out the screws top. Have them hold the pedal to the floor then you tighten the screw. proceed to the driver rear, then pass. front, then driver front. Then just top off your brake fluid. Hope this helps!

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.
