I have replaced 3 disc brake calipers on my 2001 pt cruiser. after bleeding all 4 brakes 3 times, I started the car and brake pedal goes to floor. is my brake booster shot?


Michael:

You must start bleeding the brakes at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (usually the right rear), then the next farthest from the master cylinder, then the next, then the closest. If your master cylinder is at the left front of the car, start with the right rear, then the left rear, then the right front, then the left front. If you don't bleed the brakes in the correct order, you are just shifting the air in the lines from one line to another. Make sure that you close the bleeder before letting the brake pedal up, and the engine should not be running when you bleed the brakes... Make sure that the emergency brake is off. Make sure that the master cylinder does not run out of brake fluid at any time that you are bleeding the brakes.

I recently replaced a rear brake line on my 85 ss monte carlo. I went to bleed the line and nothing came out. I attempted to bleed the other side and no fluid came out. When I replaced the line fluid did...


It should not be a mystery. Loosen one of the fittings on your new line to see if brake fluid is present. If so, the problem lies downstream from that point! Good luck!

Its possible it could be the master cylinder itself, It should always push fluid. Does the car have ABS? It could also be inside the ABS module if it does. I am familiar with brake systems and diagnostics, just not familiar with this year olds whether it has abs or not.

Changed rear brake lines


-Double check. No leaking....?
-If not leaking. When you bleed it. you might need some one to help you pump the brake.
-Make sure Pump the brake (Hole down still)/Now open or release the fluid and Closed BEFORE release the brake pedal. Repeat this until no bubble. And make sure the fluid reservoir never empty to Bottom.
You should be good to go.

did you bench bleed the master cylinder? if not, please bleed the master cylinder by cracking the brake lines at the reservior. see if you have fluid at the lines then.

Brake lines by rear door on drivers side are a common failure point. lines under door failing can cause a total brake failure. Just replace and bleed the lines.

More likely your master cylinder went dry and now has air in it. Get a bleed kit from a parts store, bleed the MC, then DO NOT let the fluid run low and bleed the brakes.

I have replaced all brake parts including front brake hoses and let all the brake fluid to drain out of the master cylinder. Went to bleed the brakes and it appeared to bleed all air out of the lines etc.....


U forgot to bleed the BRAKE MASTER! When ur bleeding the brakes, make sure ur engine is RUNNiNG. I f u haven't got any BLEEDiNG tools that sucks all the fluid in ur car, try Bleeding first the master, 2nd will be the front wheel brakes, and the REAR brakes! If everything FAiLS go to ur nearest garage and have them fix it! Drive slowly, using ur engine and hand brake! Hope that helps u out!

Why were the brake lines replaced?

Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...

if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.
