Bleeding the brakes after changing the master cylinder can take some time.
It helps next time if you fill the master cylinder before installation.
But bleeding should always be done at the furthest bleeder valve first, and to save time, you can just leave the bleeder open and put your finger over it before the pedal is lifted, like a one way valve.
Only after you are getting mostly fluid, do you switch over to closing the bleeder, pumping it up, and opening it in a short burst to let the bubbles out.

I cannot bleed the clutch on my kia caranvil


First lets make sure we are on the same page here.Your saying you have no clutch resivioir and the system is feed from the brake master cylinder correct .Now the clutch has two clylinders the master witch atteches to the clutch pedal with the rod and it mounted on the fire wall . The slave cylinder is mounted between the bell houseing and the engine . And to replace this you would need to remove the transmission and actualy moves the pressure plate springs back when the pedal is depressed . Think of it like a light its eighter on or off and pushing the pedal down turns it off Normaly the clutch would be bleed at the slave cylinder there should be a bleeder fitting near the top of the bell hoseing. And should be bleed just a brake line no trick you just have to find the bleeder . Check for fluid at the clutch master on the pedal if you see any oil at all leaking you will never be able to keep it bleed sometimes there bad even when new .If oil can get out air is GETTING IN and it will constantly need to be rebleed. Any questions fell free to ask

Brake pedal goes to the floor under constant presure. New wheel cylinders, vacuum boost, master cylinder, shoes. Everything bled, and no leaks anywhere. Any thoughts?


DID you bleed in this sequence.... Right rear wheel, left rear wheel, right fron wheel, left fron wheel, ABS hydralic fittings, & finally the Master clyinder? If not you will have air in the lines

I sounds like you have air in the system I would start by bleeding the entire system,when did the wooshing sound start before or after you replaced the brakes,and witch brakes did you replace(front,rear or all)

Do you know if the ford focus 2001 (y reg) 1.6 zetec has ABS?


may not all have fitted, but that year not to have is rare, when you turn on ign a ABS light should come on unless someone has hiden it to cover a fault. if you look under bonnet, and find the servo/master clylinder unit (near the brake fluid reservoir) track pipes down a block with several brake pipes running to it then it has , if the brake pipes from the master clyinder run direct to the wheels then you have not,
or find a clear road drive down it then slam brakes on hard if pedal throbs thats abs working

Brakes hard and sucking sound under dash. dont


The brake booster works by vacuum through a hose connected to the intake manifold. If the hose is disconnected or damaged, you would hear a sucking sound. Replace or reconnect the hose. If you need to replace the power booster, its bolted through the firewall with four studs. Remove the nuts and it should come right out.
