If you have bleed the entire brake system, your most likely problem is the master cylinder.

How do I fix the brakes in my 99 Toyota Corolla? I have no brakes and the pedal goes right to the floor.


have you adjusted the rear brakes correctly ( drum brakes)
if not drums then you have air in the systems still
brake bleeding is done starting at the wheel with the longest line and ending at the shortest line
It is a 2 person operation unless you have a pressure bleeder pump attached to the reservoir
your problem is air in the system

How do i adjust the brake pedal on my 2007 Toyota Prius


your rear brakes are shot as they are the tightest
the fronts should grab hard when you press very hard
if they are mushy you need brakes bad
you should fell very comfortable that you have great brakes.
when you press the pedal it should feel strong after 1inch of play
mush means your gonna die or kills someone.
have your brakes bled as a service this will allow them to test them for you at same time . thats the limit you can adjust brakes.

Brakes loosing pressure


Well first of you need to take it to where you got it done if you had pressure prior to taking it in to get the brake job done. If you had drum brakes done, it sounds as if the brakes were not adjusted. It is possible if anything to do with the hydrolics like whell cylinders or caliper replacement, you could be dealing with air in the lines because the system was not bled properly. Not sure what all you had done for $300 so just going with possiblities. Drum brakes have self adjusters. They adjust themselves when going in reverse and applying the brakes. You can kind of adjust them yourself by going at a pretttty good speed in reverse and applying the brakes kind of hard. Don't slam on them to lock them up. Just get going at a pretty good (safe) rate of speed in reverse. Try to come to a prettty quick but smooth stop. Do this several times. If this seems to help the pedal not going to the floor, adjustment may be the problem. If you had any work on the hydrolics and it wasn't bled correctly or there is a leak, this procedure will not work. In any case I personally think you should take it back to where you got the work done and have them correct it at no cost to you.

Brake pedal goes nearly to floor front pads, calipers, brake hoses changed, rotors turned Master cylinder changed, brake booster check valve changed rear brakes checked, drums good no ridge, shoe's...


I would go with not bled correctly

The booster should hold up with a hard pedal until
you start the engine, then vacuum causes it to move
down when pressing on the brake

Brake pedal dosnt apply till close to the floor..recently had a brake line replaced..i was told they bled the brakes. so im not sure if they should be bled again or a pedal adjustment


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. More then likely, they need bled again. Also, make sure that you have brake fluid in the vehicle as well.

How to adjust rear brakes shoes on toyota corrolla 1999


the shoes on drum brakes should auto adjust by backing up and applying pressure to the brake pedal (you may hear a clicking noise from the springs on the adjustment stars as they turn). If this does not work, the mechanism may be broken, aligned improperly or stuck by corrosion. Most drum brake assemblies have an access hole in the drum or backing plate to make manual adjustments, comment back to me if u have these access holes and I will walk you through the procedure...(check your shoe lining thickness as you may just need new brake shoes)

2001 Corolla LE Brakes are not strong


Could be many things to look at. 2001 Corolla, assume disc pads in front, and regular drum style brakes in rear. Generally, most of your braking will come from the front disc brakes, and no adjustment is provided in these. Rear drum brakes can be adjusted two ways. Manually, they are adjusted by accessing the adjustment "cog" or threaded rod via a slot in the back of the plate that the drum fits up against. This should be done when the brakes shoes are first installed. As an alternative, the brakes will automatically adjust when you apply the brakes while backing up. I'd suggest that you find a big old empty parking lot, without a lot of light poles to hit, and place car in reverse, get going about 5 MPH, then hit the brakes firmly to stop. Repeat this a dozen times and see what results you get.

I am, of course, assuming that the brake fluid level is good and you see no leaks from either the front calipers or the rear brake cylinders.

My brake lights won't turn off on my 1989 Toyota Corolla, how can I fix this problem without going to a mechanic?


look for the brake light switch, it is located under your dash board, beside the brake pedal pivot, or at the end of your brake pedal arm. it is a round metal object with two wire connector sticking out. you may either adjust the nut enough for the pedal to turn off the switch, or if it is grounded. replace the brake light switch.

2008 rav-4 toyota brake pedal continues to go down after you stop while holding the brake pedal at a red light.


If you own a Toyota with (BA) Brake Assist, it may be out of adjustment. It is adjustable on the 2010 Highlander and I would guess that it might be adjustable on your Toyota vehicle as well. (Assuming this is actually your problem, you have had it checked out by your service department and they said there is nothing wrong or that it was normal.) If the brake assist is out of adjustment it may be coming on too soon or when minimal brake pressure is applied. This causes a long brake pedal (brake fade or the pedal travels longer than normal before resistance is felt) and/or jerky brakes. As far as the Hill Climb Assist or DSC, this feature is activated when the brakes are applied after the vehicle has come to a stop and then you continue to press harder on the brakes for a couple more seconds. It also comes on if you drive with two feet. If you have your foot on the brake and you press slightly on the accelerator (when the vehicle is completely stopped), the DSC will come on and you will hear the chirp.
