lose the fittings at the master cylinder, you should have two of them , one for the front brakes and one for the rear, get a friend to push the brake pedal ( not too hard, be careful they may spay all over) ; and see if any fluid is coming out with his pedal down tight the fittings back with the pedal down,so you don't get any air in the lines. If nothing comes out you have a bad master cylinder.

The hydraulic clutch works much like the brake system, there is a master cylinder with a piston and spring that should keep the pedal up.
You may have to take the clutch master cyl off and inspect the internal parts.

Sounds like you may have a hydraulic leak somewhere. Check the rear wheel cylinders and front brake hoses going to the calipers.

I have to push brake pedal to the floor almost to get truck to slow down, i have new brake pads and rotors also i have no leaks in brake lines any idea why i have no brake pedal


it could be a brake booster problem or a master cylinder problem. If the rear brakes are shoe brakes try to adjust them. If not then you'll have to determine if it's a bad booster or master. Did you some how get air into the hydrolic system

I have a 96 geo prizm. I have replaced the front and back brakes. I have bled the brakes and the foot pedal is firm for about the first4 days. After the 4 days the brake pedal gets really soft and you...


It sounds like master cyl. is drawing in air causing prob. also another test would bee too bleed out and get pedal back, now step on pedal and hold firmly and see if pedal creeps near floor indicating innternal leaking in master cyl. also have some one pump bakes slowly aand look for air bubbles in brake res. after bleed out indicating master cyl. is drawing air upon release of pedal.
