That sounds normal if you still have a problem, you could try to clamp the individual flexy pipes one at a time then connect the booster and see if the slack is in one wheel, does it have ABS ? the ABS pumps can have bleed valves too

My break pedal goes all the way to the floor . I replaced brake rotors master cylinder, and Break booster. I had to bleed the brake and still pedal still goes to the floor


You still have air in the system.(not bled properly) If you let the Master cylinder drop down to nothing then you need to bench bleed that before bleeding the lines again.

Brake peddle goes to loor and drops revs and ive adjusted brakes and bled them still go to floor when i turn car back on . is it booster or master cylinder ?


start the bleeding process by opening the longest line first. Get a mate to help with the process . Pump the pedal a few times and hold it down while the bleed screw is opened. tighten the screw and pump up again open bleed screw . Repeat process until no air comes out of the screw . Repeat the process back to the last line. Keep the master cylinder reservoir full during the processes.. Operational brakes will work wit or with out the booster . The booster only reduces the amount of energy you have to exert to put the brakes on

2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

Busted wheel cyl on rear wheel lost fluid now no pressure back there what do i look for


if it is the wheel cylinder that is leaking then it will have to be replaced and all the components cleaned with brake cleaner.depending how badly soaked the brake shoes are you may have to replace them also.you may have to heat the brake line that connects to the wheel cylinder,or even replace the line if it gets damaged.the bleed all the air out of the system,

New master cylinder and booster. Brakes stop good


Well if you have bled it correctly starting at the farthest out(PS Side Rear) and working to the closest(DR Side Front) and you make sure to close the bleeder valve before letting up and repumping the peddel,then I would say that the seals in your new master cylinder may be bad.When you bled the second or third time if there was no air then I would say you have a bad master cylinder.If there was air then you have another problem.Well hope this helps and good luck.

I think I need to replace my brake booster.


Did you bench bleed the master before you installed it???? Engine off, have someone push the brake petal down and hold it down while you crack the brake line loose at the master,then tighten it and let up on the petal.Do this several times for each of the 2 lines at the master, only cracking it when the petal is being held all the way down.Repeat...Do them separately.Have some rags below the master to mop up the mess and keep the master from running out of fluid. Then do the gravity bleed one more time on each wheel cyl. and watch for a bubble of 2.
I hope this helps you.
Yes the booster sounds fine.

Pistons in both front calipers stay out, both calipers replaced


You may have a leak in the booster or master cylinder. You can put a pressure tester on the system to test for leaks. It does sound like you have an air leak.
You can try to bleed the master cylinder, then slave cylinder, then brake lines.

I have a 92 chrsy. 5th ave with no antilock brakes. just base brakes with rear drums. replaced master cly. due to leaking and replaced all the brake lines and hoses. i have good streams of fluid from all 4...


When you bleed the brakes are you starting with brake furthest from the master cylinder? Also was the master cylinder bench bled? If everything there is okay and you are not getting any air in fluid stream, you could try bleeding the brakes by having some one slowly pump the pedal till it is firm. Then have them let off open first bleeder valve and slowly depress to floor and hold there untol the valve is closed. repeat this at all bleeders. You may want to have car running to do this. Try this and let me know.
