My brakes are going to the floor


Hi, the likely cause is a leak that has used all the fluid in the reservoir and drawn air into the system. You will need to find the leak, repair it, and then bleed the whole system of air. Likely places for the leak are at the back of the master cylinder or at any of the 4 wheels. It is possible to draw air without a leak if your front brakes are extremely worn. If this is the case, replace the front brake pads and bleed only the front wheels. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...


it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

Brakes sink to the floor


by stating that your pedal sinks to the floor, you leave 3 options open 1.) the master cylinder seal is bypassing allowing the fluid to bleed by the proper correction is to rebuild the master cylinder.
2. One of your drum brakes has a wheel cylinder that has failed causing a noticable behind the tire leak (most common) correction is to replace all brake hardware and wheel cylinder.
3. One of the brake lines is cracked,broken, inspect for leaks and replace with new line.
4. notice on disc brakes if a brake caliper fails (part that squeezes brake pads to rotor) you will have the same symptoms of a broken wheel cylinder, this would of gradually occured feeling a heavy pedal or pulsation.

My brake pedal goes to the floor?(spongy brake pedal) i added brake fluid and still have the problem.Do i need to bleed the brakes and if so whats the easiest way?


If you needed to add a substantial amount of fluid, good chance that something is leaking. You will not regain full pedal 'till that's repaired. Leak could be from a line, caliper or wheel cylinder. The master cylinder can also leak from the rear (check for a wet spot where it's bolted on)
If you did not need to add much, it's also possible that the master is internally bypassing and needs to be replaced.
Bleeding needs to be done after any hydraulic repair. Basic bleeding can be done by opening the r/r valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder and having someone hold the pedal down, then closing it as many times as necessary to get the air out, then doing l/r, r/f and l/f the same way.
Some ABS systems require special procedures so check haynes or chilton manual to see if anything extra is necessary. While bleeding, frequently check the fluid level...if it runs dry you need to begin all over again. Master cylinders should be pre-bled, then re-bled before bleeding remainder of the system (instructions should come with the part.)

Brake pedal to floor have replaced brake pads and master cylinder


Did the pedal go to the floor beforehand? Was the master cylinder leaking, and did you bleed it properly? If the master cylinder was not leaking, check your brake lines going to the rear wheels.

Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor!


I have changed brake pads before and did not lose any fluid but air can get in the lines. Brake fluid is not compressible while air is, so if you get air in your lines it compresses when you hit the pedal there fore the pedal goes down to floor and your brakes dont grab that good. You can either bleed the brakes your self by starting at the wheel furthest away from the brake fluid reservoir and unscrewing bleeder hose and letting the fluid just bleed out. (get something to catch it and dispose of it properly). Make sure you keep the reservoir under your hood full of brake fluid while letting the other stuff by tires bleed out. Work your way from the furthest tire first and the closest one to the reservoir last. GOODLUCK!

Brake line leak


start from the farthest, right rear, left rear, right front, then left front, take some time in bleeding your left front since it has more air induced during line replacement. good luck!
