Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup
A booster cannot cause a low pedal. (unless it is boosting too good...which will put your face through the windshield - LOL!) If you have replaced all that stuff, you probably have lots of air in your lines. Many times, "normal" bleeding will not remove this air. The best way to cure this is to do a "Radical" bleed. You need to start at the right rear wheel. Make sure that your master cylinder is full. Open the bleeder screw at the right rear wheel and pump the pedal about 15 times. DO NOT close the bleeder screw while doing this. Be careful to watch the master cylinder so you do not run it out of fluid. (If you run it out of fluid you will have to start over) Leaving the bleeder open, refill the master cylinder and allow the right rear to gravity bleed (just let it drip) for about 1 minute, then close the bleeder screw. Repeat this process next with the left rear, then the right front, and lastly with the left front. Top-off the master cylinder again and pump the pedal HARD. Then open the bleeder at the right rear and close it again as with "Normal" bleeding. Do this at least twice or until it stops spitting air, whichever comes first. Repeat this process also with the left rear, right front and left front. Top-off the master cylinder ... the problem should be fixed.
