You have lost your brake fluid somehow, or you have air in the system. Do not drive the vehicle until you have it repaired. If you are not capable of repairing your brakes, please have it looked at by a proper mechanic to have it repaired. Do not trust your life to this problem or better still someone else.

Sound when braking which is coming while car stopping and releasing brake pads


You probably need to have your brakes checked asap. They could be worn and the longer they are used without repair/replacement, the more expensive it could be (and dangerous!).

2002 Toyota Camry , no abs and new rotors and pads, 155,000 km. Initially when driving the car, the pedal feel goes down smooth. After a few more braking while driving, the pedal feel goes down jittery....


Although the toyota mechanics could eventually be right, your car is exhibiting all the signs of air in the brake lines. This is especially common after a recent brake job. Some mechanics merely push back the calipers to keep pressure on the brake lines and don't bother to bleed the lines. This works most of the time but the only true way to ensure there's no air in the lines is to bleed them. After having the brakes bled, if you are still having the same issue, I'd say it would be related to the master cylinder but I'd never replace it or any related component without first ruling out air in the lines. I hope this helps answer your question. Best of luck!

Brake pedal is mushy all the way to the floor. Have already replaced front calipers, master cylinder, and bled all the brakes. Pedal still goes all the way to the floor when stopping the car.


If the car has drum brakes in the rear, Jack the rear up and have someone push the brake pedal hard and you try to turn the wheel. If you can turn it you need to adjust the rear shoes. They may be traveling out so far that the fluid level drops causing the pedal to go to the floor. You must adjust them with the drum on till you hear and feel the shoes rubbing against the drum. Hope this helps.

I am having trouble bleeding my brakes on a ford courier there is no pedal there when i have bled the brakes and i have also tryed changing the master cylinder and it is the same


Start by bleeding master cylinder, will take two to do this, have some pump the brake paddle about ten time every time, have them pump it and hold it down while you open brake line when paddle goes to floor close and pump again ( one of the brake lines at the master cylinder ), keep doing that till no more air comes out, then do the other brake line at master cylinder again till no more air comes out, keep an eye on master cylinder that it don't go low on brake fluid or you will have to start all over again, how go to right rear wheel and bleed till no more air comes out ( have them pump brake paddle and hold while you open and close bleeder valve, do not let them release brake paddle till you have close bleeder valve, keep doing that till no more air comes out, then go to right rear, then left rear, from there right front and last left front.Hope this was very helpful, good luck.

Having trouble with the brakes on my '90 Ford ranger. Replaced the master cylinder and still have very little braking power. Any help would be appreciated!


***Seek out professional help this vehicle is not safe to operate.***


Check the vacuum line going to the brake booster.

This is the big round chamber behind the master cylinder.

Hope this tip helps.

Check for brake fluid leak's at all wheel's. but more then likely it going to be your master cylinder, pump brake paddle up and hold with lots of pressure if paddle goes down bad master cylinder.Good luck.
