It could be your power steering pump not building pressure in your brake booster or your master cylinder which is where your fliud goes. Try flushing the system and check for leaks and restrictions

Having trouble bleeding brakes for 2009 jeep wrangle 4wh drive when car is off the brakes seem fine , but when the car is on the brake pedal goes almost to the floor


Because when you start it the brake booster will start working, start bleed on wheel farthest from master cylinder and work closer, one at a time pump up and bleed each line at least once after you don't see air anymore...

My brake fluid leaked out and the pedal goes to the floor, but does pump-up (after adding fluid), took it to a mechanic who replaced the fluid, master cylinder and booster, but it still acts like it has...


I assume that the mechanic bled the brakes after the job was done?If the brakes were not properly bled it could leave air trapped in the system causing the symptoms you described.

The brake cylinder in the right rear tire started leaking. I changed it and bled the brakes., now they won't stop and will go all the way to the floor. where and how do I adjust them? THANK YOU jOE!


You may need to further bleed the brakes. Something pumping to bleed the brakes can **** in air at the brake fluid reservoir. Try using a vacuum pump to **** out brake fluid from the release screw at the brake side. Make sure you always have enough fluid at the reservoir.

Location of the brake fluid input


the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

Brake pedal goes all the to the floor. can not


Check the reservoir to be sure the fluid is full. If not, top it off and try it again. If there's still trouble building pressure, pump the brakes a bunch of times, and then check around each wheel for fluid on the ground. If you see none, it's possible that you have a break in the line somewhere through the chassis and that the fluid is leaking out inside. If you see no evidence of leakage, and the reservoir is still full, you need a new brake master cylinder - what will have happened is that the diaphragm around the plunger inside the master cylinder (which moves through the cylinder when you push the pedal, and forces fluid out to the wheels) has a hole or tear in it, so instead of pushing the fluid out to the brakes, the plunger simply moves through the fluid. It never builds pressure, and your brakes don't work.

I need to bleed the brake fluid


Raise vehicle and remove the tire. Then have someone else pump on brakes until they are hard, then press and hold brake pedal in. (do not let off) then you can open bleeder valve and let air and some fluid out. Do on each side. (both front or both back)
Pump and hold brake pedal, open bleeder valve until pedal goes to floor, then re-tighten, then let off brake pedal. Do this about 2-3 times on each side. Do not let brake fluid level go down to low when bleeding or you can have alot more air in the system. Or if you have no one else to help you, you can get a bleeder pump and **** out air until you have full stream of fluid.

Brake fluid leaking


It looks a faulty brake pump, to check it- have some one else with you to watch the pump fluid while you are pumping the brake pedal, if there is an air bubble come up the fluid then you should change the brake pump or kit.
