This can be caused by bad piston seals in the master cylinder.
check to make sure that you do in fact have brake fluid in the reservoir and try and bleed all the air out of the brake lines. if no pressure is building up then replace the master cylinder.

If applying pressure causes fluid to exit out of the resevoir you most likely have a sticky caliper: Possible to have a plugged break line, or a pinched line. Check all break lines including the rear following them to the front.

Braking pressure


It would be my best guess that you have a rubber break line collapsing on the inside that is not allowing the brake fluid to return to the break resevior. I have run into this on a number of occasions. It is usually on of the front caliper lines. I hope this helps you. Good Luck.

1992 geo tracker no front break pressure?


now the question is
did you get the original master cylinder as a replacement or did you get a new master cylinder for the car that the callipers came off
understanding that there is a direct relationship between master cylinder piston size and calliper piston size, you problem appears to be that there is not enough surface area in the master cylinder to effectively push the calliper pistons out to apply the correct braking pressure
mixing and matching with brakes requires a lot of hydraulic knowledge and pressure differences which include fitting a proportioning valve in the rear brake lines to prevent brake lock up at the rear wheels

LOSING PRESSURE WHEN I PRESS BRAKE PEDAL, BUT NO OUTSIDE LEAKS


check the brake pads. When they start to wear down, they can have extra play in the pedal causing you to have to press further or pump them. If they are still loosing pressure, check the fluid levels and check again for leakage all through the lines, both front and back.

Hi I changed the master cylinder in my 1977 f 150 and found I had leaks in the rear break line. I plugged off the rear break line at the master cylinder,hoping to at least have front breaks, however I...


Hi, if you plug the port, the plunger will not be able to build pressure in the front lines as the back brake section of the master will hold the plunger back. The proportioning valve will also not let you do this, as it is trying to strike a balance between the front and rear brake pressure. I'm afraid you need to repair the rear brake lines. This is not hard work, but it does require a brake line tool for cutting and flaring the lines. You may be able to borrow the tool, or check to see how much a brake place would actually charge to replace the lines. The supplies are cheap, and the labor isn't really very long--maybe a couple hours.

Replaced bad break lines on 2000 chevy 1500. Getting fluid to rear but not front. Bled master cly. getting pressure on front line but not rear.


Open and allow the fluid to flow out as there can be air lock in the tubing to the rear. so remove the tubing once again if there is no flow and clear with an air pressure.
There after connect to bleed off the front/rear in unison to remove all air lock.

Break pressure


Make sure you are trying to bleed the system in this order (Right rear, Left rear, Right front, Left front). If you are doing this and still not getting pressure, you should check the brake lines going to the rear for leaks. If you find a leak, replace that segment of line, bleed the system again and problem should be solved.

Poor breaks


When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,
