If you normally have a good pedal and occasionally the pedal goes down, ,the master cylinder would be bypassing and it would need a new one. But you might check the master cylinder this way. Start the motor and let it run and then pump the brake pedal three full pumps and on the last pump hold the pedal down firmly for about one minute. It should not go down any further. It should remain the same. You might have to do this test more than one time. Also when bleeding brakes check the brake lines coming out of the master cylinder to make certain the brake lines come straight out vertically and then turn down. other wise you would need to bend them down or use a pressure bleeder to bleed them. They actually should be ok , but it don't hurt to check. Also whenever bleeding brakes and you crack the bleeder to let fluid out, you should not hear the fluid hiss coming out once all the air is out. and last but should have been first, was to bleed the master cylinder by breaking the lines loose, one at a time until fluid flows out of the the connection.

Brake pedal is hard when vehicle is not running,but is soft when the 2005GMC Envoy is running.changed the brakes and rotors?


This sounds like a vacuum or hydrolic issue. If The pedal is spongy soft while its running it indicates air in the brake line, or faulty master cylinder, or faulty brake booster. A faulty master cylinder would get hard after a few pumps of the pedal. Since the pedal is hard when it is shut down, it makes me lean toward the brake booster.

I replaced front and back brakes on my 1996 1500 Chev Suburban. Bled the brakes starting at the farthest line. The pedal is soft and travels too far. Does not seem to stop very good. What is the...


it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

Hand brake, Camry Altise


Hello, I researched this problem for you and it is a common problem with the Altise. It feels like you have to pull the E-Brake really far up I am assuming. Factories and Dealerships do not normally adjust these to each and individual car but this is not a complicated thing to do. Adjusting your parking break from your car can be some what complicated due to the amount of work you have to do to get to it inside your car. You may have to remove your console to get to the necessary screws to take your cover around your transmission selector out but if you mark and bad all your parts and screws and their locations this should not be difficult at all. You can also try to adjust the parking brake from under neath the car and you will probaly have to remove a cotter pin and a washer and then screw the lond U shaped connector at the front of your parking brake cable towards the rear of the vehicle to make it more tight. This may fix the long travel of the parking brake cable. Just take note that this is a common problem with your vehicle but with a little time you can make this a manageble fix that you will be happy with and I hope you fix this and are happy with the work you done as well. I would refer to a Haynes or Chilton Auto Repair Manual for the best step by step information as well.

Brake pedal goes too far down. Brakes still stop car fine. Too much pedal travel. 2005 model year.


You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid
