Sounds like you have air still in the line or lines somwwhere. Hope you drain out the master before adding fresh new fluid to do the flush? Place a piece of vacuum line over the bleeder nipple and the other end in a bottle with some fluid, having the end of tubing under the fliud line. Have someone pump the brakes 2x then release the valve. Listen for when the pedal hits the ground on its way down and close the valve. Repeat this till no air is left and until the person bleeding says it has the same pressure 2x. Also the rear has to be done the same way an dmake sure that the shoes are adjusted properly before you bleed them. One final note, check for any leaks coming from lines, calipers, rear cylinders.

What would cause there to be no brakes what so ever even after replacing all the broken brake lines and bleeding them all on a 2003 Hyundai elantra?


if this has anti-lock brakes it may be the HCU(hydraulic control unit) may have air in it. it may have to be activated to get all the air out.

Brake problem


try adjusting the rear brakes up correctly
the spring that holds the shoes together pushes all the brake fluid back into the reservoir and each application has to move the shoes back into contact with the drum
that is enough to get the pedal close to the floor

When truck is off,pedal is hard. after starting, pedal goes to floor. replaced master cylinder,bled brakes. changed front and rear pads.


I would inspect the brake booster for vacuum leak. When the booster is not working you get a hard pedal, yet when you start the vehicle the pedal will hit the floor because of the damaged diaphram inside the brake booster.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Aztek. My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor. I have had new brakes and rotors replaced on the front and a new master cyclinder. Still same problem. My brake fluid has always...


Was the brake system bled after the master cylinder was installed?

After anyh brake work is performed, particularly with disk brakes, you have to pump the system up to get the calipers reset. Start engine, pump the brake pedal several times, and you will begin to feel the brakes come back up, assuming everything else has been properly repaired.

Let me know what you find.
