Question about 2004 Toyota Tacoma
I bought 1972 VW 411. Previous owner had a problem with the brakes system and paid to 2 guys 1,000 to fix and never got it done right. And so I bought it from him and did it myself. And I know what the brake feels like when I first bought it and it feels the same after i replaced a rebuilt master cylinder and then bleed all 4 bleeders like 3 times making sure no air and I seems don't see any air at all and the brake doesn't work at all. wondering what s wrong cuz i even have a rarest VW 411 manual book and i read the direction and followed what it said, nothing got the brake works. Help me out!
Just rectified my problem today with my vw bug thanks to some great people on this site. Try to clamp all (4) of the rubber hoses that go to the wheel cylinder (or calipers if discs) to isolate the master cylinder. Pump the pedal slowly and see if it holds pressure. If not it could more than likely mean a bad master. If you don't feel comfortable clamping the hoses and you want an absolute seal, plug the master cylinder with metric brass plugs where the brake lines go in and then slowly push the pedal.
Make absolutely sure you have no leaking anywhere in the brake system first. Good luck.

Possible bulge in the brake lines somewhere? Any fluid leakage? Adjustment at the wheels correct? The piston units may not be anygood, heave you pulled off the wheels to check to see if they move at all? The rebuilt master cylinder still may not be any good also.
