Welcome to FixYa.com Check for leaks, Bleed system, and if brakes still go to the floor possible bad master cylinder. Regards, Lee

Chances are the seal inside the master cylinder is blown (check for leaks before buying bits......)

BRAKE LIGHT ON DASHBOARD CAME ON AFTER HAVING ROTORS REPLACED. STILL ON AFTER DRIVING ABOUT 75 MILES OR SO.


your ebrake is on try pulling the handle and push it back down or get the foot pedal to release. if that's not it. you have to check the fluid level. or you have air in the system. does the pedal feel spongy when you stop on the brake pedal. if it slowly goes to the floor you could have another problem with air or a leak

Brakes not working right


Air is getting into the system hence the spongy feel to the pedal. The problem may lie with the brake assist system - have it checked professionally - brakes matter!

When i push my break pedal down it will go to the floor is this beceause i need new pads


If the pedal goes all the way to the floor you have air in your lines somewhere. If the pedal is soft and spongy then there is air in the lines. Start checking around the inside of your tires, and up near your Brake Booster and Master Cylinder

I have a 96 ford explorer xlt 4wd with ABS. When I bought it it had a broken back break line. I replaced the line blead the breaks and the breaks are spongy. I googled the issuse and found out it could be...


Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

New front calpers can,t get bleed spongy pedal


sometimes it may take a while to bleed the brakes, to bleed the brakes you need two people. to bleed brakes properly: make sure car is off and brake fluid is full, have someone pump up the brake pedal until it feels hard and hold it down once it is hard(make sure when you loosen the bleed screw the person pushes the pedal to the floor), have another person loosen the bleed screw until the brake pedal is on the floor of the car. repeat as needed and check the brake fluid often when doing this

Spongy brake pedal


could be the master but NOT the booster
the booster increases pedal effort and when it goes you have a HARD pedal

...go to your parts store and ask for a brake booster bleeder kit and bench bleed the master on the car...if the pedal is still spongy then YES its the master

However, more often than not, a vehicle with ABS this year, that had the pistons pushed in during service suffer from ab HSU failure'

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.

Check brake booster


You can check the booster.First check vacuum to booster,is it strong?,it needs to be.Check the check valve that the vacuum hose slips onto.It should only be one way,blowing threw it and not being able to blow threw it the other way.If this is all ok,then think about this,Are the brakes really hard to push down?or just going to the floor,or spongy,or anything else?If the brakes are hard to push,then replace the booster,if the brakes do anything else,it`s not the booster.The booster only,I repeat,only, make brake pedal easy to push.If I can help.>>>roniecon@gmail.com

Spongy brake pedal


I have a 2001 Chevy 1500 4 X 4 that recently had all new pads, rotors, and calipers installed. Since then my brake pedal goes almost to the floor before I get any brakes. I took it back to the shop and they bled the brakes with no better results. I bled them also with no results. I took the truck back and they installed a master cylinder with no results. It's now at the Chevy dealer and they say it's normal - BS! I had good brakes before I had all of the brake parts replaced, no one can figure it out. If you have a load in the truck or if you tow anything you better be looking at the ditch to avoid an accident. The original brakes would put you nose into the windshield and now I could stop it better the Fred Flinstone way. Anyone have an answer????????
