You have a leak somewhere, while pushing on the brake, have someone look under the car to see if the leak can be seen. It can be anywhere since the brake lines run from front to back of the car. DO NOT drive the car in this condition.

Intermittent loss of brake pedal,only happned three times but customer says it went to the floor


If this is a hydraulic brake system, the first thing to do is to check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. Assuming that it is not down, the problem will probably be in the master cylinder. Try pushing the brake pedal down very slowly. This will not put a lot of pressure on the seals in the master cylinder, and if there is a problem, the brake fluid will leak past the seal allowing the pedal to go slowly to the floor. If you push the brake pedal down rapidly, the pressire on the seal will hold it against the master cylinder wall, and the brakes will hold fine.
If the fluid level in the reservoir is low, look at all of the wheels and slave cylinders to see if you can locate a leak. I don't suspect a leak based on your description of the problem, but it's worth checking.

Jeep brakes


It is very difficult to diagnose this problem with the little bit of information you gave. If the brakes are drum brakes check to see if the brake cylinder is working and has no leaks, lift the rubber seals and make sure there are no leaks there, check the brake adjuster make sure that works okay. If everything works and you bled the brakes properly, then the problem is most likely is the master cylinder or the wheel cylinder.



While bleeding the brakes always make sure you check the master cylinder reservoir to make sure the fluid level is up so you do not get air in the brake lines. When bleeding the brakes did you have someone press down hard on the brake pedal hold the pressure on the brake pedal when opening the bleeder then push the brake pedal to the floor keep it there, until you tightened the bleeder, then pump the brakes up and hold it there, while you repeated the bleeding operation by opening the bleeder when the brake pedal go\'s to the floor keep the pedal down until you tighten the bleeder and then pump the brake pedal back up then check the fluid level in the reservoir, keep doing it until the brake fluid shows no sign of air.



If the brake pedal is pumping up during the bleeding process and you made sure you got all the air out of the brakes and then the pedal go\'s to the floor, make sure the fluid level is correct in the reservoir and the bleeder is closed tight and there are no leaks in the lines, wheel cylinder, brake cylinder the brake adjuster is working and master cylinder, and if you still have no brakes then it must be a defective piston in the wheel or brake cylinder, if there is a seal problem with the pistons you will not get any pressure to push the brake fluid. let me know how you are doing.

Fixya. I have no idea how my question has related to a 2002 Montero. The car in question is a 2005 Pajero 3.2 turbo diesel. Same questions still apply.


You need to have the brakes bled. What happens is you pump up brakes and hold while another person unlooses brake line to lest out air in the brake fluid. Its down for all 4 brakes and then you will have a good brake pedal.

Brake system


You have a leaking brake line or Caliper. You need to fix the hole by replacing parts.

1992 F250 460 cid automatic 2w drive 85000 mi. Just replaced my master cylinder, all 4 brakes, and both front rotors. Afterward I blead the brakes and got bubbles out of fluid. Problem is : when not...


There is never a test or reason to pump your brakes

Accomplishes absolutely nothing.

There is no pressure in a braking system at all,
until you SLOWLY apply the brake pedal.

Then less than 1" off movement in the master cyl,
will develop 600 to 1800 lbs at the wheels

Release the brake pedal, the system goes to zero,
IT DOES NOT HOLD ANY PRESSURE

To answer your question

You not suppost to press the pedal hard
The saying goes--you apply the brakes,
not force the pedal arm and pin into the
vacuum booster, as though you want to damage it

When your driving what happens ?
You have higher manifold vacuum and
thus your pedal is normal,why the VACUUM
brake booster

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

Changed rear caliper on 98 blazer and now have no brake pressue at either rear wheel? Did before I changed calipers. Tried to bleed the brakes but get very little fluid out and it is slow, no pressure?


Hi,
Have someone pump the brake pedal and hold foot pressure it. Loosen the bleeder screw and air or fluid should shoot out... it's under pressure. Tell the person to not lift up on the pedal until you tighten the bleeder, or they'll draw air back into the line. They'll feel the pedal go down to the floor. Keep applying pedal pressure till the bleeder is tightened. Repeat the process till all air is out. They will have a "good pedal" shortly.
Do each wheel, and remember to refill the master cylinder as you lose fluid.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.


First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)
