There is air in the system. You can try bleeding the system but it's better to have a garage do it with a pressure bleeder.

98 voyager replced all parts ,bled brakes still cant get high pedal


Did you try adjusting the rear shoes? If out of adjustment they would have to travel farther giving you a low pedal. Also did you try bleeding the abs unit?

2003 rav 4, just replaced front calipers and pads, after bleeding the line,peddle was spongie, bled all four lines, peddle still spongie, do I need the engine running to properly bleed the lines, and since...


I would bleed the rears too especially if the brake fluid reservoir drained empty. Also you may need to drive the vehicle to seat the brake pads. Check and see how the pedal feels initially before you road test to make sure you don't need to pump the brakes in order to stop. if you do then re bleed all four wheels.If you don't have to pump the pedal and it just feels spongy then try going around the block a few times and see if the pedal stiffens up after the pads have seated.

Spongy brake pedal on 2003 Frod escort zx2.


loosen of the hand-brake adjustment and press the brake pedal a few times to self adjust the rear brakes.
Re-tighten the handbrake adj last.
Front brake sounds like a seized caliper,If possible remove caliper and clean and lubricate the piston.
This may work but replacement caliper may be the only other solution.Make sure the caliper slides are also clean and lubricated and the brake pads are in good order.(TRY THIS FIRST)
Also new brake shoes can make the pedal feel spongy for a couple of hundred miles until they have been run in.

Spongy brakes


So long as the brake booster is working, test it by turning on the engine, press the brake pedal all the way down, then shut off engine keeping your foot on the brake pedal, if the pedal comes up slightly pushing against your foot then the booster IS working.

Did you BLEED the brakes??????

Spongy brake pedal even after ABS bleed and base brake bleed.


Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

make sure brake hose not twisted. also possible shield from behind rotor rubbing its bolted behind hub & knuckle also check & make sure the metal shim for brake lining ears is not rubbing on rotor on the center edge. also sometime s there is a difference on inboard & outboard pads there is a dimple you may have switched. also with the wheel off & caliper mounted to knuckle you should be able to move in & out by hand if pins are good.

How to bleed 88 brakes


Fill master cylinder, unscrew bleeder valve on caliper or wheel cylinder until it starts dripping fluid. Drink a cup of coffee and retighten bleeder screw. Check rear wheel cylinders for leak at where it contacts the shoes. They are cheap to replace and will give a spongy pedal if they are leaking.
