No resistance on my brake peadle for my 2002 ford taraus

If you have a pedal that drops to the floor you have serious issue and should have it looked at professionally ASAP, if you are not mechanically inclined, and you do something wrong you could seriously hurt or kill someone. my son has perminent injury due to someone with faulty brakes.

How to bleed the brakes

Start at the right rear wheel, while having someone in the driver seat, have them to apply pressure to brake peadle while you open the bleeder valve located at the top of the caliper. After fluid stops coming out of the bleeder valve close valve, and person in the driver seat can release pressure off of brake peadle. perform this till all air is out at each caliper. Right rear first, then left rear, right front, and then left front, be sure to check brake fluid level after each caliper is bleed.

Brakes are real spongy and we changed the master cylender, and bled them but still spongy, the peadle is nice and hard when not running but as soon as u start it peadle goes right to the floor? i dont...


it sounds like there is still some air in the brake system.

when the engine is not running the brake servo is not working either. when you start the engine, the servo works as well, putting far more pressure on the brakes.

bleed the system again, starting at the cylinder furthest from the master working to the nearest.
if this does not improve the brakes then try bleeding the system again, but with the engine running to activate the servo system. this should expel any remaining air.
BE CAREFUL doing this. always put safety first. try to use axle stands to lift the drive wheels if possible.

Dont know how to replace brake light switck

Remove the cover from under the dash and look up above the brake peadle about 5 inches you should be able to see the switch there may be 2 switches if you have cruse contronl. The brake light switch should have white and orange wires. just pull back on the switch to remove it. When putting the new one in push the brake peadle in then push the switch all the way in the hole then pull the brake peadle back till it stops this will push the switch back out some this will adjust the switch. Of course ckeck for proper operation. Here is a bad diagram of the switches but it the only one I could find.547561f.png

Brake peadle goes soft at slow speed or when bakking up. Replaced the following, master cylinder. vac pump, complete front and rear brakes. booster.

Sounds like there is air in the brake lines. did you bleed the fluid until it came out clear? Not foamy color.

Rear brake job

pull the two bolts holding the caliper on and pull the caliper off now get a C clamp and compress the piston all the way into the caliper now remove the two bolts in the caliper hanger and remove the hanger now the caliper should just pull off ( if corroted hit it with a hammer ) now just put every thing back to gether the way they came off...............WHEN DONE WITH THE BRAKE JOB MAKE SURE TO START THE TRUCK AND PUMP THE BRAKES UNTIL THE PEADLE IS HARD. YOUR PEADLE WILL GO RUTE TO THE FLOOR AT LEAST ONE TIME MAYBE MORE.

Peadle goes to the floor with no pressure behind the pedel fluid

you will need to replace your master cyl and bleed your brakes
your master cyl is bypassing inside or the seal are bad inside the master cyl
there isnothing slse in the system that could cause this unless you are loosing fluid.
good luck
