2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

Soft pedal on 03 grand caravan


Have you driven it since the brakes where replaced?

Did you bleed all four wheels?

have you "broken in" the new pads?

Are the rears drum or disk? If drum are they adjusted correctly?

are you using remanufactured master cylinders? If so keep replacing them. eventually you will get one that works. New is pricey but a better way to go.

1999 Ford E350 van problem: brake pedal is soft; have replaced master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes and drums, front calipers, rotors and discs; have bled master cylinder before...


Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them.

My brake light stays on and no brakes. replaced brakes, bled, replaced line, bled..works for a day or so and then brakelight comes on and no brakes again..what could be making this happen????


Check the master cylinder and if it's low again, check system for leaks...likely you have another you didn't see...Also check the rear of the master itself for seepage. If you can pump the brake and get the pressure back but it then sinks down while holding moderate pressure on it, the cylinder itself is bypassing.
