Bleeding isnt going to help a hard pedal. If the pedal is mushy, and there is no air, the Master cylinder could be bad. If the pedal is HARD, there is no air. Press on the brake pedal several times with the engine off (5-6 times) now hold your foot on the pedal and start the engine, you should feel the pedal slightly give way under your foot. If you dont, and have a HARD pedal, the brake booster could be bad, but have professionals check it out before spending any money.

Why does my brakes feel like they are dragging after I replaced the brake pads?


DO NOT DRIVE THIS VEHICLE. You have air in the brake lines. Have your vehicle towed into a repair shop. Let a professional handle brake repairs. You obviously don't have a clue as to what you are doing. You are placing others in danger with your ill repaired vehicle.

Just changed front brake pads and still feels like brakes go to the floor. What is wrong?


check that fluid level is ok, by changing pad and opening calipers you may have lost fluid our of resovoir.

if your discs where not changed or skimmed at the same time you will have ridges, that do not match to the smooth pads, when you drive for a few miles eventually the pads will wear down and form the shape of the discs.

if they continue to be soft, bleed the fluid to make sure there is no air in it, if the brakes are still soft after this you should replace the brake fluid completely if it has not been done for a while as brake fluids absorbes moisture and that makes the brakes feel spongy or soft.


i hope this was useful.

2003 rav 4, just replaced front calipers and pads, after bleeding the line,peddle was spongie, bled all four lines, peddle still spongie, do I need the engine running to properly bleed the lines, and since...


I would bleed the rears too especially if the brake fluid reservoir drained empty. Also you may need to drive the vehicle to seat the brake pads. Check and see how the pedal feels initially before you road test to make sure you don't need to pump the brakes in order to stop. if you do then re bleed all four wheels.If you don't have to pump the pedal and it just feels spongy then try going around the block a few times and see if the pedal stiffens up after the pads have seated.

Replace brake pads


I would not recommend changing your own brake pads unless you feel confident doing so.

Jack and support the car

remove both front wheels (only do one side at a time this way you can look at the other side if you get stuck)

remove calliper bolts/pins

remove brake reservoir cap

push back the piston

fit new brake pads with copper slip

follow same steps on other side

now you need to bleed the brakes (this is a good artical showing how this is done http://www.carbasics.co.uk/how_to_bleed_car_brakes.htm)

Hope This Helps Tom

Brake boosters


you can tell if the brake booster is bad, rearly it goes bad, your master cyclinder usually go out before your brake booster will. It feel spoon-gy and while pressing down on the brake peddle holding it down you can feel the pressure bleed off with no resistance. If the brake booster is bad you have only ONE shot for braking each time; its very dangerous. Did you bleed the brake lines to release the the air out of the system when you replace the pad? whom ever did your brakes should know to bleed it. having air in the line can be dangerous as brake will not function and operates properly and can cause an accident. If you did bleed the brakes and your booster is fine then you have a master cylinder problems. master cylinder gives you a spoon-gy feel and when braking the peddle it tend to go to the floor and you have to let your foot up to build the pressure and applied the brake again to make it stop. Master Cyclinder use or rebuilt will cost you 30.00 bucks and new will be 58.00 bucks and they are easy to replace. Just make sure you have plenty of extra brake fluid to bleed all 4 brake line..I recommend you reused the brake fluid when bleeding the unit saving some money than wasting the fluid, glass jar is the best for capturing the bleed fluid with automotive smallest vacum hoses you can purchase at any auto discount store 58 cent a foot, which you only need 2 foot. good luck I hope that help some.

Since you are taking it back, have them check all the brake lines in front, and the wheel cylinder (if the back has drum breaks). Although you had only the front done, it's a good ideas to have them check the back brakes, and the master cylinder. Check your brake fluid before taking it back and make sure it's full, if so, you may just have air in the brake lines. If this is the case, either they forgot to bleed the brakes, or didn't bleed them enough.

ABS bleeding technique on GMC Yukon


If you forced the pads back into the calipers without loosening the bleeders you probably forced gunk into the abs modulator valves. Sometimes doing the automated bleed proceedure (need Tech or Bi Directional Scanner) will bring things back to life.
