Sounds like a bad or empty Master cylinder or slave brake system leakage . Check the master for full brake fluid. Look for leaks at each wheel.
Maybe the system has to be bled.
Hope this helps.

Just replaced the brakes on my 2002 gmc envoy the abs and brake lights are on. What could it be?


did you add brake fluid and did you check to see how the brake pedal feels when you apply the brakes with the car on? you will have to bleed the air out of the brake lines if the brake pedal goes to the floor when you apply the brakes.

Brakes not working right


Air is getting into the system hence the spongy feel to the pedal. The problem may lie with the brake assist system - have it checked professionally - brakes matter!

Master cylinder must be bench bled before it is installed or it will not build pressure possible you have a bad booster try bleeding the master cylinder first

Brake pedal goes to the floor only when engine is running.


Hi Alicia,how is your brake fluid?Usually just changing front brake shoes requires no bleeding since the brake line was not open,how were your brakes before you changed the pads,if fluid is low,maybe back wheel cylinders are leaking.Front calibers could be bad,or even master cylinder,need more info.

My brake peddel is spongee-soft, and goes to the floor if i prees hard?


when you push pedal hard & pedal goes to floor does brake light come on?
assuming brake fluid leval is ok & didnt run empty have you checked for a leak?
pulling all wheels & inspecting brakes,cylinders, calipers,& lines for leaks.
does the pedal pump up & feel ok with engine running?if so there is air in the system
if it does'nt change the way the pedal feels & no leaks are found & brake linings are ok & adjusted
properly than your master cylinder is leaking internally & needs to be replaced

My brakes feel spongy when i brake. when i pump the brakes with the car not running after 3 or 4 pumps the pedal feels firm but when i start the car the pedal goes to the floor


1.Check the brake fluid under the hood ,and if its low ,add more .
2.If its not that, look under the car to see if you have any brake fluid leaks,main areas to look is
around the wheels on the back side of the tires where the bleeding nuts are and under the motor where the brake cylider is. You may have a hole in the brake line located in those area.

Emergency stopping,brake pedal went almost to the floor,took long distance to stop,antilock pulsated just before stopping.Feels like uneven aplication of front and rear brakes. And what is the brake fluid...


if the brake edal goes to the floor then either the booster is bad or low on fluid. There is a line on the side of the fluid reservoir to fill too.

Adjusting the front break


did you change the front, back or both. if it was just the front then you need to put new back brakes in because that's were most of your brake pedal feel comes from. if it was both i would start looking at your brake system to see were the rear brake adjustment valve is and then start fiddling with it till it feels better.
