Sounds like a bad master cylender because it relies on engines vaccum and when you rev it goes back to normal

Have to push the pedal to the floor to get car to stop. Fluid levels fine.


If the pedal really is going down to the floor you must have air in the system and you are compressing it. It is possible to get a very minor leak that lets air in but very little fluid out. If the pedal is going down to the usual level your servo could be acting up. If you get somebody to run the engine and then stop it and press the brake pedal while you listen under the bonnet you should be able to hear the air rush in when the atmospheric valve opens. If it doesn't you may have a leaking hose or the atmospheric valve is not working properly.
Another possibility is seized pistons in your calipers or they are rusted up and sticking. If you jack the car up and get someone to press the brake pedal and see if it locks each wheel in turn, when they take their foot off the pedal you should be able to turn the wheel by hand. If the wheels don't lock when the foot brake is applied or don't unlock when the pedal is released the problem is probably either sticking disc pads or seized pistons.

Shift lever will not move out of park. Engine is running, seat belt fastened, parking brake released, all doors hood and trunk closed, foot firmly on brake pedal.When the button on the side of the shifter...


you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal

Where is the transmission stick on a 1999 ford taurus. I lost the manual. When I go to shift out of park sometimes it is having trouble.


The stick is on the driver side towards the back of the firewall..Sometimes it painted black ,,so you will have to look closely..Shouldnt have anything to do with coming out of park though...Sounds like a linkage problem..You have a solenoid that releases the lock when you put on the brake pedal..Then you can take it out of park..Listen closely and see if you hear the click when you depress the brake pedal.Sometimes depressing the brake pedal several times will release it

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Where i can find the hand brake


There is no hand brake. It is foot operated. The pedal will be on the driver side kick panel, and the release handle is under the dash in the same area.

There are 2 causes, 1.caliper slides are in need of servicing/lube.2, caliper(s) piston(s) need to be serviced/cleaned. Recommend replacement of both calipers, if either doesn't work.

Spongy brakes


So long as the brake booster is working, test it by turning on the engine, press the brake pedal all the way down, then shut off engine keeping your foot on the brake pedal, if the pedal comes up slightly pushing against your foot then the booster IS working.

Did you BLEED the brakes??????

I sometimes cannot get the shifter out of park to go ..i have foot on brake but it does not matter. after some force and rapid movement it finally releases. any help would be great. 1997 blazer 4x4 4.3


test the release solenoid for the park interlock pin, 1st make sure it has 12 volts at the connector 2 the solenoid when the brake pedal is pushed and if it does make sure it works and is not sticking, this is most likely a sticking solenoid that releases the pin to let u out of park
