    I have a 1995 mitsubishi montero LS and brake locks up when ever the engine start to get warm, and i can't run it more than 45 miles per hour, it will start to slow down and the brake will become harder and harder until i park it for 5-10 minutes before i continue to drive again.

    I have replaced the booster, master cylinder and bleed the brakes, it still does the same thing.. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Brakes go to floor i changed master,4 calipers,4 brake hoses, and all pads


Time to redo the bleeding of the system again...starting with the master cylinder...you do not have to remove the master to re-bleed it. disconnect both brake lines from the master, and start again by pushing pedal to floor, and rebleed each line at the master...this is critical to work properly...you mentioned new master cylinder, if remanufactured I would return it. As noted above, after confirming the master is fully bled...rebleed each caliper beginning with the rear, farthest away from the master...you must have "air" in the brake lines. Hope this helps.

Changed brake pads and used a c-clamp to retract the piston in the caliper, never bled the brakes and my wife was driving the van 2 weeks later, applied the brakes and the peddle went right to the floor,...


Bleed the brakes, but it will probably still feel spongy. When you compress the Caliper you need to open the bleeder valve to release the pressure. It sounds like you busted the diaphragm in the proportioning valve. It is a costly mistake but one made alot now that more and more vehicles have anti-locking breaks. If bleeding and replacing the fluid do not help at all then I bet on the proportioning valve.

Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, will slow the car a little, but wont fully brake. master cylinder is fine, calipers and pads are new, brake lines look okay, it's holding brake fluid fine, lines...


must be something you have overlooked. clamp off the front brake hoses and rear hose. if you dont have the propper clamps use g clamps or locking pliars. try the pedal then. if it still goes to the floor its either air in the lines or the master cylinder is no good..Bleed the master cylinder at the lines first,then work back.

Changed brake pads and rotors, then bled brakes and now I have no brakes at all


Fill up the master cylinder and bleed them again all four wheels you might have got air in the brake lines from letting the master getting to low on brake fluid. and check the equalizer valve.

2000 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER BRAKE SMOKING. IVE CHANGED ROTOR,PADS,CALIPER AND BLED THE BRAKES. AFTER DRIVING FOR A WHILE THE BRAKES START SMOKING FROM NOT RELEASING.


possible the master cylinder is not allowing the brakes to release all the way. also did you check the slider bolts on the brakes to make sure there not binding? if there new or all the brakes are smoking i would lean towards the master cylinder

While driving my 1994 Honda Accord the brakes went out. I can only get the car to stop if I press the brake pedal all the way down to the floor. When the car is shut off and I pump the brake pedal, I can...


There may be air in the lines. Bleed all your brakes starting at the farthest wheel from the resevoir, and finishing at the closest one. Try the pedal after its bled. If the pedal still feels soft or travels to the floor there may be a pinhole leak that may be spraying on the underbody of the car, or the seals in the master cylinder are gone filling the vacuum booster(if equipped). Air compresses more than oil so if bleeding works that may be the problem.
