Make sure you have bled all the air out of system.

Start bleeding from the furthest wheel first and work your way to the closes to master cylinder last,
You have everything else covered.

How long does it take to change a breack booster for a chevy s10

I can't remember what book says but I can't imagine it taking more than 3 or 4 hours taking your time even if you mess up and spill the fluid out of the Master cylinder and have to bleed the system. BTW, it's "Brake" Booster and sits on the firewall between the brake pedal linkage and the master cylinder. Oh and there are big differences between a 96 GMC Sierra and a Chevy S10 but the job is about the same and should take about the same length of time

When i press the brake pedal you can see bubbles in the brake fluid reserviour.

Have you been bleeding with a vacuum bleeder tool or the conventional way. A vacuum bleeder gets out more air provided that everything else is done correctly.Like the correct wheel sequence depending on weather you have rear wheel anti-lock only or four wheel abs.Refer to a Haynes repair manual.

96 e350 replaced master cylinder and proportioning valve,brakes will slowly go to floor as pressure is applied. could booster be bad or rod through booster to master be out of adjustment ??

No they just need bleed, Or another word for getting the air out of the lines. Do this by loseing the brake lines behind the wheel and have someone pump the brakes till full peddal, then hold then losen brake line till nothing comes out but flouid, Do this to each wheel, If take to shop just ask them to bleed your breaks and should'nt cost you over $20. Best of luck to you.

Brake pedal go all the way to the floor

Check for brake leaks. Make sure that the resevore is full. With the engine off pump the brakes then check for leaks. If there is no leaks then bleed the brakes start with the right rear and work clock wise around the truck. If there is no air that comes out of the lines and the fluid looks clean your master cylinder went bad and it is a easy replacement. To replace the master cylinder you'll need a 14 mm for the lines and a 15 mm for the booster. Thanks!

95 sierra 5.7 suddenly has rough idle and brake pedal is hard to push at times checked booster hose& made sure still connected. runs fine at high speeds

If you have a hard brake pedal the most likely cause is the brake booster has gone bad, this can also cause your rough idle situation as well because of the vacuum issue that will be a problem because of the bad booster. there are 2 nuts that hold the master cylinder to the booster and 4 bolts on the booster under the dash, not a difficult job to replace you can leave the brake lines attached as well which will save time from bleeding the entire brake system. I hope this helps

My 94 c1500 has very spongy brakes.I have replaced brake booster,master cylinder,porportion valve and both rear wheel cylinders.brake pedal will get firm when applied too bleed brakes but not much fluid...

You still have air in the system. You will have to bleed more. I had to bleed a quart of brake fluid out of each wheel to get good brakes on my 1996 GMC.

How do i install a power booster for a 1992 GMC Sierra, 2 wheel drive?

First remove the 2 nuts that hold the master cylinder to the booster. Then remove the vac hose. Then remove the clip at the brake pedal to the rod. Then remove the 4 nuts that hold the booster near the brake pedal. Then remove the booster and install in reverse order. Let me know how it goes.

Abs sensor

No, the pulsing is caused by warped rotors. Look at the inside part of each wheel to see if you're loosing brake fluid. If everything is dry, try bleeding the brakes and check you brake fluid level. If it still does it, remove the vacuum hose from the engine that goes to the brake booster and plug it. The pedal should be very solid. If it bleeds off still, replace the brake booster.
