Brake Problems Failing Brakes Just had the brakes done 3 weeks ago, but now when the brakes are applied, the pedal travels to the floor bur the van will not stop quickly. My mechanic replaced the master cylinder but the problems still exists. He told me I now need a ABS motor. Do you agree with the mechanic? If so what will it cost? Thank You.

    Hi thanks. But could there be a nother fix.

    Hi thanks again. The check valve was also changed, along with a set of calipers just to try to see if this would fix the problem,bur no again. I was thinking could it be at all be that the booster needs to be replaced. The pedal is firm when the van is turned off and you pump them. But when I start the van it seems that the pedal travels further but will not STOP the van quickly. THX

May be only a check valve. Be sure your man knows ABS stuff. It CAN get tricky....accordianman

    A check valve is less expensive than a motor, but I would get a second opinion on this to be sure. Usually, the master cylinder is the culprit on these, but anything from an external leak, to a valve, to even the ABS motor will all cause this symptom. Unfortunately, there is no other fix...accordianman

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

Brakes loosing pressure


Well first of you need to take it to where you got it done if you had pressure prior to taking it in to get the brake job done. If you had drum brakes done, it sounds as if the brakes were not adjusted. It is possible if anything to do with the hydrolics like whell cylinders or caliper replacement, you could be dealing with air in the lines because the system was not bled properly. Not sure what all you had done for $300 so just going with possiblities. Drum brakes have self adjusters. They adjust themselves when going in reverse and applying the brakes. You can kind of adjust them yourself by going at a pretttty good speed in reverse and applying the brakes kind of hard. Don't slam on them to lock them up. Just get going at a pretty good (safe) rate of speed in reverse. Try to come to a prettty quick but smooth stop. Do this several times. If this seems to help the pedal not going to the floor, adjustment may be the problem. If you had any work on the hydrolics and it wasn't bled correctly or there is a leak, this procedure will not work. In any case I personally think you should take it back to where you got the work done and have them correct it at no cost to you.

BRAKE PEDAL GOES TO FLOOR AND BAD ACCELERATION


Brake pedal traveling to the floor is air in the system or a failing brake booster.

Poor acceleration could be a clogged cat. You would have to remove it to know for sure.

Spongy brake pedal


I have a 2001 Chevy 1500 4 X 4 that recently had all new pads, rotors, and calipers installed. Since then my brake pedal goes almost to the floor before I get any brakes. I took it back to the shop and they bled the brakes with no better results. I bled them also with no results. I took the truck back and they installed a master cylinder with no results. It's now at the Chevy dealer and they say it's normal - BS! I had good brakes before I had all of the brake parts replaced, no one can figure it out. If you have a load in the truck or if you tow anything you better be looking at the ditch to avoid an accident. The original brakes would put you nose into the windshield and now I could stop it better the Fred Flinstone way. Anyone have an answer????????
