Hello. The leak is coming from one of three spots, the caliper, a loose hose connection or a purger. If you have an AAMCO repair shop nearby, go there. I find them to be good, fair and fast. Joe

My 85 honda accord is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust pipe in the rear and it appears to have something dripping onto the heat shield under the car, what do you think could be the problem?


check the brake system for any leaks. check the master cylinder for leaking out the rear of it. if you take the master cylinder nuts of that hold it to the power brake booster and slide the master off the booster and look at the rear of the master to check for a fluid leak or dampness. if you see this replace the master cylinder. also sometimes the power booster will suck the fluid were its drawn into the engine and burnt and the smoke will look white. another thing that causes white smoke is a bad head gasket as the coolant is sucked into the combustion chamber and burnt, it can also leak externally and cause the dripping you see.

No brakes on a 1986 honda accord


Did you get a good bleed with fluid coming out at all four wheels? If they bled good, and the pedal still goes to the floor, you need to check the brake master cylinder-it is probably shot with an internal leak. An internal leak will not let fluid pressure build up, so no brakes.

Did you keep the brake fluid reservoir from going dry while bleeding? If it went real low, air might have got back into the lines.

It is not uncommon when bleeding brakes on an older vehicle for the master cylinder to suddenly develop an internal leak and require replacement . Here's why: pushing the pedal all the way to the floor causes the master's piston to push in farther than ever before. The rubber cups then travel over a section of the cylinder not usually touched by the cups-old fluid can develop a crud there and when the piston pushes over it, the cups can get ruined. To avoid this when bleeding brakes, put a short piece of 2X4 wood block under the pedal. Then the pedal will not extend the master's piston beyond it's normal travel. Of course on a new master cylinder, you do not have to do this. A new master cylinder does require bench bleeding before installing, however, to ensure no air pockets develop from there.

I have a 1992 honda accord and the brakes go to the floor but the brake pads and all are in very good condition?


If the fluid is full, and there is no leak,and you have not had to add fluid, the master cylinder may be bad.

Great spelling!!!
Check your clutch master cylinder fluid level. (Dot 3 brake fluid) It may be leaking at the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder. If the fluid looks dark and dirty, flush it out.

Brakes are hard at first then the pedal slowly goes to the floor.


You need a new master cylinder. I'm assuming that you aren't losing brake fluid from a leak somewhere.

As the master cylinder wears out it's internal seals allow fluid to leak past the pistons. None actually leaks out of the brake system so you don't see the leakage on the ground under the car and the brake fluid level remains constant.

Replacing the master cylinder is not hard from a technical standpoint but it is a job you'll want a service manual's help with just so you know the proper steps to take. A small, hand operated, vacuum pump is a godsend when you get to the part of bleeding the brakes and this is a good time to flush the brake lines anyway. Proper tools are a must, get a proper line wrench to avoid damaging the brake lines when you remove them from the master, and be careful when reinstalling the lines that you don't start them crooked and cross thread the line fittings.

A good quality rebuilt master cylinder will do the job, or you can spring for the new factory part. Back in the day we used to rebuild them but finding a rebuild kit is impossible these days.

Where is the clutch valve located on a 95 honda accord


clutch master cylinder is located drivers side firewall,right next to brake master cylinder. it has small shot glass size fluid resevoir mounted above it,fluid is fed through hose down into clutch master. clutch master cylinder has a rod mounter on ft of it that goes through firewall and attaches to clutch pedal under dash . clutch slave cylinder is mounted on ft passenger side of transmission assy. most common leak is from master cylinder,you would be able to look under dash ,follow clutch pedal up to where it attatched to clutch master pushrod.follow that rod to wear it meets up to a small 1 1/2" or so rubber boot.fluid will be leaking from that boot if master is leaking.

Brake light


The warning light is triggered by a loss of hydraulic (brake fluid) pressure in the system. look under the car at the inside of all 4 wheels for discoloration from leaking fluid. Inspect the rubber brake hoses. Inspect the area under the master cylinder on the firewall as well. Lastly, a master cylinder can have a leak (blown seal) internally that would not be detectable externally. A dead giveaway for this is brake fluid that is very dark or black.

Sounds like you have a clutch problem. first thing to check is the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder, which is near your brake master cylinder for fluid level. It uses same fluid as brakes. See what you find out & get back if need more help.

Brake fluid transfer from Master pump to ABS pump


hi from uk if you are saying that the brake master cylinder reservoir fluid is falling in level? and that there is signes that fluid is leaking from the ABS hydraulic master cylinder ie fluid is leaking from the arpeture where the electrics wiring loom enters then there is probably one of the piston/valve seals leaking within abs assy ? or is leak from somewhere else? not had this problem before with fluid passing from abs assy resulting in reservoir losing fluid in this way?
