Inspect COMPLETELY for leaks, at each wheel, each flex hose and the entire metal brake line system. If you have zero leaks, the master cylinder is suspect.

SOURCE: brakes

Since there is no loss of fluid we can rule out any leaks. A poor booster would make you apply the brake much harder to stop. So somehow you are not developing the necessary pressure for the brakes to function. The pressure is developed by the master cylinder seals. You can get a rebuild kit or a rebuilt master cylinder but the real pain is bench bleeding the new one. Luck to you.

it sounds like you need to bleed the brake lines. it's a two person job, and at least one has to know how to do this. if not you'll have to take it to a brake shop. it also could be a bad brake booster, but your car isn't that old so i don't think it's that.

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes to floor. No fluid leaks found.

It needs a master cylinder. The only other thing it could be is if you have an exhaust leak, boiling the brake fluid, but this would happen as you drive it, not just sitting there, without it running

Brake pedal goes to floor vehicle still stops


Is the brake light on? Check your fluid level. Pedal going to the floor could be because of a leak in the hydrolic system line, hoses, caliper, wheel cylinders, master cylinder internal and external leaks. Can also be because of over sized drums and/or under adjusted brake shoes.

Clutch and brake pedals go to floor


Check your brake fluid. If it is empty you have a leak somewhere. If it is full it sounds like you have a giant air bubble in your brake system. Bleed the brakes and the clutch slave cylinder.

You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

I have a 1981 Corvette and my pedal has to be pumped to get a hard pedal.The Brake Master cyl. has been changed twice in 5 days the brake fluid level remains full.The brakes have been bled 5 times and on a...


First check each wheel brake cylinder for small leaks. If no leaks then the brakes have not been bled properly. Liquid will not compress like air, thus the reason pumping the pedal makes the brake pedal come up. If you had all of the air out of the lines then you pedal would not be soft. With your pedal going to the floor either there is air in the lines or fluid is slowly leaking.If it is a small leak on one of your wheel cylinders, it may be hard to detect without pulling the wheels off and looking. Small leaks on your wheel cylinders may never drip off of the car.

Break peddle to the floor no resistence behind it, and not stopping well, no noise.


First of all, don't drive with the brakes this way...
Sounds like you've lost the hydraulic pressure in the brake system.
Check the following:
1. Open the hood and check the brake fluid reservoir to make sure it's full of brake fluid. If not, top it off with the recommend brake fluid.
2. Try the brake pedal again, with the car running in PARK, press a few times and see if the pedal "firms up".
3. If it does, press and hold the brake pedal with the motor still running. Look to see if the pedal slowly sinks to the floor or if it's a bit "mushy" or feels ok.

If the pedal sinks to the floor, you've got a major leak in the brake system. This could be from one of the wheel cylinders, from the disk brake caliper piston, a damage brake hose, brake line, a faulty master cylinder, power brake booster.
The best way to check is a visual inspection. Look around each wheel- look for fluid leaks, for signs of fluid where you park, on the axles, under the hood near the brake fluid reservoir, etc.
If after the fluid is topped off, you get a mushy pedal, I would suggest getting the brakes "bled". Bleeding the brakes simply means getting all the air out of the brake lines. (Air compresses where brake fluid won't- if the pedal is mushy it's got air.)
If you've not done brake work before, I highly recommend taking it to a local mechanic to help you out. You really want to KNOW that your brakes are going to be there when you need them. So if in doubt have a mechanic check it out.

How to fix intermittent brake pressure loss


Hi:
If you intermittently have your brake pedal go to the floor, you need to give this immediate attention, as this is a safety concern. First, check the fluid level in your brake master cylinder. If it is full, you most likely that you have a failed brake master cylinder, if there are no obvious leaks or fluid loss

Brake pedal will go all the way to the floor


make sure brake fluid is full. then pump brakes for one minuite check the fluid to see if it went down or stayed full. if it went down then check the system for a leak . if it stays full then you will need a new mastercylender . i dont think you have a vacum problem cause this causes a verry stiff brake pedal not one that goes to the floor
