Question about 2000 Toyota Camry Solara

1st felt like the brakes were staying on when stoped, in drive, idleing. Then the brake peddle went almost to the floor and the brakes are not working near as well as they should be.

    brake fluid is full, the front pads are just about ready to be replaced. Could mean the master cylinder needs over hauled, or maybe the pads are past due for replacement

    thank you for your responce. I will replace the worn pads and see if that helps. Since the last time I posted the brakes started working again for a short time then the next time I used the car it started acting up again. Could there be another problem or would worn pads do that? Thank you much!

Try this: Pull up the park brake lever; and put the car in gear. Accelerate slowly. Does the car move at all, it should NOT move at all...? If it moves freely, the rear brakes are not adjusted properly (assuming that the car does NOT have rear brake discs/pads)...the long pedal stroke could be from worn rear brakes and/or the rear brakes being way out of adjustment. Very common. Try this, and please get back to me. Thnaks.

    replace the brakes and blead the lines....... make sure there is no air in the lines..... when you are done try them again and see if there is a diffrence. most of the time when the pedal goes to the floor it is because the brakes need replaced and or there is air in the lines.

    still i would replace the pads and bleed the lines. even though they may have worked for a short time migh tell me that there might be air in the lines allowing it not to work but also appling enouph pressure to stop the vehicle.

Brake problem


try adjusting the rear brakes up correctly
the spring that holds the shoes together pushes all the brake fluid back into the reservoir and each application has to move the shoes back into contact with the drum
that is enough to get the pedal close to the floor

Brake paddle went all the way to the floor. where is this thing local


if the peddle went to the floor you had a break some place in the system, causing the pressure to drop dramatically.
Have it towed to the nearest mechanic and do not attempt to drive it.
They are going to have to find the source of the leak and replace it. Could be any where in the brake system.

94 s10 chevy 2wd brake pedal fades to floor before stoping


Might check around the big black round muffin shaped chamber adjacent to the master cylinder for a loose vacuum hose or crack therin; the hissing sound seems likely to be the air rushing in as you loose the vacuum that supplies the power to assist your braking effort (power brakes)---as this goes, so goes your peddle until it reaches the actual piston pushing the brake fluid (which should be firm like with non-power brakes).
...maybe have an assistant push on the peddle while you listen with a piece of hose or a stethescope to find the leak (or I suppose the power unit diaphragm could be shot/leaking--hence replacement), but since you said after bumpy road etc, one could hope for a simple dislodged vacuum hose or fixable crack.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder break lights stay on although car is off.


Check the brake light switch. It is in the drivers floor board, behind the brake peddle. The switch looks like a box with a button on it. the brake peddle is pressed, and presses the brake light switch. If the switch sticks, the brake lights will stay on.
