More than likely it is not your calipers. Sounds like you have got an air pocket in the brake system. You need to get a helper and bleed all four of your brake lines at the wheel. Have someone pump up the brake 3-4 times and hold the pedal and then release the pressure of the brake line at the caliper. Should be a 8 mm wrench (maybe 10 mm). Do that 3 times at each wheel and you should have your brake pedal back to normal. If that doesn't fix it, you need to look at the master cylinder because that will probably be the problem. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Brakes spongy after shop replaced rotors braked pads on 2001 buic


Sounds like air is still in the brake lines, the air sound that you hear is the power assist, but the brake pedal needs to be "high and hard".

if the pedal goes to the floor, that is not good. Sometimes, when pumping brakes for bleeding purposes, the master cylinder gets damaged, as the piston goes past it's normal "travel zone" and gets damged on deposits.....

Now, with that being said, if everything was perfect, brakes are typically not as firm after replacement, due to differences in new pads/shoes and old rotors and drums. Pedal to the floor, however, is never okay.

You will may want to check your calipers to make sure the pistion or pistons depending on your truck are pushing the brake pad against the rotor> While you are down there you might want to check out the rotor and brake pads as well. To check the rotors make sure there isn't any hot spots due to over heating your brakes as well as an out of round rotor. To check the pads just have a quick look at them to see if there is any scoring or uneven pad wear. remember that uneven pad wear can also be caused by the calipers

Brakes to the floor(almost) 99 blazer


bleed the brake again. if the pedal goes to the floor with little resistance, then the master cylinder is your problem.
the shim is to depress the noise when you applied the brake. you can skip that, if the brake works without it.

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.
