Does the vehicle have rear drum brakes? If so, then check the brake shoe adjustment. The hold off valve will not allow the front brakes to apply until the rear brakes begin to apply. The drums should fit closely to the shoes. A brake shoe adjustment gauge is available at most part stores. You can also use a tape measure. Measure the shoes from the outside of one lining to the other. Now, measure the inside diameter of the drum. This measurement should be slightly larger than the shoe measurement. If it isn't, then adjust the shoes until it is.

You've obviously still got air in the lines. If you can't remove it, take it to a shop for a pressure bleed.

I've got a '94 ranger super cab, my brake pedal goes all the way to the floor after stops. What causes this?


Sounds like a bad master cylinder. It could also be leaking rear wheel cylinders if you are losing a lot of fluid.

I have a 03 ford taurus the break pedal gose to the floor after changing the rear breaks and the front pads and after changing the master cylinder? what else could b the problem


You've done major work and now you'll need to completely bleed air out of the system, to get the fluid to go all the way through. You may also need to adjust the rear brake shoes.

First, bleed the Master cylinder to get fluid through it. This should have been done before installation. Loosen the lines at the M. Cylinder and fill up the reservior with brake fluid. Pump the brake pedal slowly with the cover on the M. Cylinder to prevent fluid from splashing out. Once you've got fluid coming through the M.Cylinder, tighten the brake lines at the M. Cylinder.

Bleeding the brakes is a 2 person operation. You always bleed the brake the farthest from the master cylinder, then the next, the next, and finally the drivers front brake which is the closest to the M. Cylinder.

If you are unfamiliar with this process, you need to remember that you can't let the brake fluid get low in the M. Cylinder, or you have to start all over when air gets back into the lines.

When one person pumps the brakes, after several pumps hold the pedal down as far as it will go and keep pressing to the floor as the other person loosens the bleeder valve. Don't let off of the pedal before tightening the bleeder valve. Then repeat until all of the air is gone.
Teamwork and communication. Both of my wives were able to assist me in bleeding brakes.

You will have to add fluid and repeat this process until you have a firm pedal.

One man bleeder valves work if used properly, but who tells you what is happening at the other end while you're pressing the pedal?

Good luck.

I want to puul fuse for abs brakes.I broke the rear line and now I can't get any brake peddle.Loosened line where we hooked to brake and let it drain until fluid ran free.still no peddleWhen engine is...


these use by directional braking like the volvos have used for decades.that is the left rear brake works with the right front brake and right rear brake works with the left front brake.this is how the brake lines are connected to work for the braking system.so when you have a brake leak you will have to bleed the opposite brake to get the air out.this maybe your problem also if the abs system has air in it then it will have to be bleed of air.

Brakes are still spongy after changing the pads, one caliper, and master cylinder. bled front brakes.


I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?
