Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper

Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

Brakes keep sticking,replaced both front calipers and brake hoses.i dont know what causes them to stick but the brake pedal comes all the way up and the car will not roll freely. i loosen the bolt used...

Sounds like the wrong fluid has been put into the brake master cylinder.if so,the seals in the master cylinder will need replacement and the whole system looking at and bleeding.Quite often ATF (automatic transmission fluid) gets put into brake systems by accident and this is always the result.You would need to flush the whole system out to get rid of the fluid.

My clutch doesn't always disengage when the peddle is on the floor and when starting out in first bolts ahead as though the clutch was already part way out. I took it to a shop and they said my clutch...

your clutch master cylinder is right beside your brake master cylinder. I would advise you to replace the master cylinder and the slave cylinder together. The slave cylinder is on the side of the transmission. The slave cylinder does have a bleeder screw on it after the parts are bolted in place fill with dot 3 brake fluid and open the bleeder on the slave cylinder until fluid starts dripping out. Then tighten bleeder then open bleeder and have someone push down on clutch pedal while the pedal is pushed down tighten the bleeder the release pedal. Repeat this procedure until you get no air and the pedal feels normal and you should be good to go. Good luck!

My ex wife put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder and drove the car across town..... what should i do

Immediately **** out the contents of the master cylinder, replace with fresh brake fluid, and flush the system.

Flushing can be done by doing a good old fashioned manual bleeding consisting of one person opening and closing the bleeder screws and one person working the brake pedal or many shops will have a brake flush machine that will make quick work of the job.

The P/S fluid in the brake system will cause the seal to bloat and eventually fail. We see several cars every year that this happens to. If its caught early a system flush will take care of it. If ignored everything gets replaced (master cylinder, brake hoses, calipers, and wheel cylinder). We have had a few over the years that where ignored for so long that the brakes eventually locked up.

I need step by step instructions on how to bleed brakes on my 2005 toyota celica

If you don't have someone to help you you'll need to get a one man brake bleeding kit. The bleeding kit will take the place of the helper. IF you have a helper start with the rear passenger side wheel (furthest from master cylinder). Remove the wheel, have a helper sit in the vehicle and pump the brakes several times (motor off). Tell them to hold the pedal down while you open the bleeder screw. Tighten the bleeder screw before the helper releases the brake pedal to avoid sucking air back into the line. Repeat this process until the fluid flows out of the bleeder with no air. Then repeat these steps on each wheel. The order of bleeding is always furthest from the master cylinder. Rear passenger, rear driver, front passenger, and lastly front driver. After each wheel is done check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add as necessary. You don't want it to get low and **** air in from the cylinder.

2000 saab 9-3 brakes are dragging after vehicle warms up; replaced the master cylinder as the old one was difficult to push in / actuate during bench bleeding and wouldn't retract easily; however brakes...

Most likely the free play required between the brake pedal and the debooster you replaced.
If all 4 brakes drag,
it can not be anything else, ensure the brake deboost has clearance, between the master cylinder. not partly acitivated already and pushed the master cylinder in slightly. Always look what you did previously and when the problem occurred. Brake pedal to debooster, or debooster to master cylinder both must have some clearance.

For the past week or so there's been oil of something leaking onto my brake pedal, dont know where its coming from?? toyota camry '90

It is probably brake fluid from a bad master cylinder gasket . This can be fixed with a master cylinder kit. Do you have problems with your breaks ? If it is a standard tranny instead of automatic it could be fuild from the clutch. Check the fluid levels for any or both cylinders.

Your master cylinder rear seal is most likely shot. Check to see where the fluid is actually leaking from. If it is coming from the rear of the master cylinder, flush against the brake booster, replace the master cylinder.
