WEll, solve the pedal to the floor and the air noise will be okay.

Check all 4 wheels brakes, and all lines for leaks, if okay replace master cylinder, be sure to pre bleed it.

Breaks go to the floor


Then you have a massive leak somewhere as the brake peddle should not go all the way to the floor without some low break fluid indication. I would check brakes at each wheel as something isn't right or your not seeing it. Have someone pump the pedal and look to see if after the wheel is removed that the brake actually tightens and loosens. Remember that 4 wheels means 4 brakes, but master brake cylinder (where you add brake fluid) could be bad.

How do i bleed clutch on 2000 trans am ws6 ram air


I\'m assuming this is the one with the 5.7L LS1 V8. Ok, bleeding the clutch is real no different than bleeding your brakes. Locate our slave cylinder.(Not the reservoir) In most cases, it\'s best to start with a gravity bleeding. Make sure the reservoir is full, loosen the bleeder on the slave cylinder, until you have a steady stream coming out. Then tighten the bleeder, and check the peddle.SUCKAUTION**** MAKE SURE THE BLEEDER VALVE IS TIGHTENED AND CAP IS ON THE RESERVOIR BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CLUTCH PEDDLE!!! AS MISSING THIS STEP WILL **** UP AIR INTO THE LINE.Step 2, have a friend sit inside the car, and continuously pump the clutch(like bleeding brakes) about 10 pumps should do it. Have friend hold the peddle to the floor and announce that it is to the floor. ***They must hold the peddle to the floor*****while they are holding the peddle, loosen the bleeder valve until fluid comes out. repeat process until no micro bubbles come out, just clean fluid. Finally, remember to top off your fluids after bleeding, as you will naturally loose some in the process. Hope this helps. ^^

How do i bleed the brakes on my 1984 ford mustang never done it before


same as any nother car. take off mastercylinder cap. get a helper set in the drivers seat. apply pressure to the brake peddle. with a box or tube wrench break the fluid *** on the top of the calliper/back of drum loose. foot pressure on peddle should push it to the floor -hold it on the floor! tighten the *** on the caliper/drum tight-ish. not over tight. then let peddle up off floor. pump till you get resistance/tighteness. hold pressure on peddle, loosen *** again and peddle will go to floor again tighten ***, lift up peddle pump for pressure. repeat untill all air is out of line/ or fluid runs out clear. never let the master cylinder get low on fluid. have plenty on hand. repeat for all 4 tires.

Brake pedel fades


Chances are you have a small pin sized hole in your brake lines were your fluid id slowly leaking loosing brake pressure. I would fill the master cyl. full then have a friend look under your car while u step on the peddle to see if u can see any brake fluid leaking anywere. If there is none i would try bleeding the brakes. There could be air in your brake lines also causing this to happen.

2001 Chev blazer, brakes have been bled, peddle


You probably have air between the master cylinder and the abs pump. Fill the reservior and have someone pump the brake and bleed the primary lines at the abs pump. Good luck.
