Brake pedal has no resistance

I have no brakes. The brake pedal pushes all the way down but there is no resistance at all. There is still brake fluid in the resevoir but i cant seem to see if there might be a small leak anywhere.

Why does it have no brakes?

Re-calibrate your brake calipers by lifting your caliper housing and using a c clamp to push the caliper back into the housing. DO NOT TAKE THE CAP OFF OF THE BRAKE FLUID RESIVOIR AS THIS COULD LET MORE AIR INTO THE LINES. After you have reset the calipers, try resetting your brakes as before; pump brake pedal until it gives good resistance. With your foot still depressing the brake pedal, start the vehicle. If it does it again, then you may need to re-check where you bled your lines for integrity.

Hope this helps.

No brake fluid reaching rear brakes

Your problem could be several things #1 Are you bleeding the brakes properly , start at passenger side rear wheel. Have someone t sit in drivers seat Have them push brake pedal down ,open bleeder.,close bleeder ,have them let brake pedal up . push pedal down again ,you open bleeder again than close bleeder,have brake pedal up continue doing this until a stream of brake fluid without air comes out.( never pump the brake pedal while bleeding) if this is not working after 30 or more cycles you may need to replace your master cylinder. if this was helpful please leave goodback

When i step on the brake pedal it goes all the way down, what's wrong?

You have air in your brake lines. Try inspecting the system for brake fluid leaks. Replace any worn out brake pads, scored discs, leaking brake piston seals, etc.Now place a clear tube on the bleeder screws, one at a time , and bleed the air out of the system with the help of a friend to push the brake pedal. Start at the rear wheel cylinders and finish with the front calipers. Once the air is out of the lines the pedal should firm back up.

Did not return the fluid from caliper

Ok. I am not sure what you are meaning by "did not return fluid from caliper" but if you are trying to bleed out the caliper,make sure you have enough fluid in the brake fluid resevoir under the hood.And then have someone pump the brakes 5 or 6 times,then hold the pedal down.With the pedal held down,loosen the bleeder screw on the caliper.The brake pedal should go down to the floor.Tighten the screw then let the brake pedal up. Do this until you have a steady squirt of brake fluid come out of the bleeder screw when you push the brake pedal down and loosen the screw.If you keep doing it and no fluid is coming out,then you either have too much air still in the line,not enough fluid in the system, or you have a blockage in the line.Make sure you bleed the brakes at all 4 wheels.Good luck

I Push my clutch down and has no resistance, i also cannot get the car in and out of gear. I drive a 1995 3000gt SL.

the clutch is hydraulic . you need to look on the fire wall for a reservoir . and fill it look on the cap it will tell you what fluid to use . after you refill it pump the clutch a few times the wait 5 minutes and pump it again . check the fluid again pump again if the fluid is leaking out you'll have this trouble again till you fix the leak.

Bleeding brakes

bleeding the brakes -
look fo the bleeder ( zerk fitting ) on the side of the caliper, attach a 1/4 inch clear hose to this fitting and run hose into a catch pan or bottle,, make sure you have plenty of brake fluid in the reservoir ( re-fill as needed during the bleeding process ), have a helper sit in the car and ready to press down the brake pedal, with brake pedal up - open the zerk fitting using a small wrench, have the helper press down and hold the brake pedal to the floor, with the pedal down - close the zerk fitting, your helper can now release the pedal, ( repeat this about 3 to 4 times or until clean and bubble free fluid flows through the clear hose ) --- top off the reservoir with fluid and repeat these steps for the other brake calipers. Note: if brake pedal feels sloppy ( not firm ) then there is still air in one of the lines,, continue bleeding until pedal feels like it has some resistance.

just changing the brakes won't help the problem alone. it's a matter about pressure you should have some resistance but no free floating. when you push the pedal down the fluid flows throgh the lines and acuates the wheel cylinders which move the brakes if that is not happening that is a major problem with the master cylinder, booster or both
