Loss of brake pedal,had 2 new mastercylinders


Hi, it may not be the master cylinder but a leak in the piping or other brake parts. The system was bled to get all the air out when the new cylinder was fitted and it sounds like you are getting air back into the system again that will cause the brakes not to work .Some times it can be caused by a perforated brake pipe due to rust.

Have 1991mazda 626 I put brake drums , master cylinder brakes still go down do not know what to do net


It appears that you have not bled the air out of the system. Get a mate to pump the brake pedal a few times then hold it down while you open the bleed screw starting at the nipple furtherest from the m/cyl. Hold down the pedal while you retighten the nipple. repeat the process until there is only oil coming out. Do this at all nipples until the pedal is solid. don' forget as you are doind this the oil in the m/ cyl resevoir will be going down so keep an eye on it and refill as necessary. Use only the correct brake fluid from an unopened container

My brake pedal went to the floor, brought it in...They told me it was the Master Cylinder. They changed it and put in a brand new master cylinder but it still seems like the brake pedal goes further t


The extra brake travel can be;
1. air still in the brake lines and need bleeding
2. if there are brake drums on the rear they may be out of adjustment
3. if there are warped brake disc or caliper problems that will add to the brake travel

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

If you are losing brake fluid you still have a leak in the system, if not then take it into a garage and have it pressure bled.

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
