Are there vacuum hose on the brakes hydraulic system?


NO. the vacuum is used to make the brake pedal easy to push, power brakes. the pedal would be hard without vacuum, that is why the pedal gets hard with the key off and engine not running. the problem you are having is more of a hydraulic problem.
Have the brakes checked asap. the brake system may have a leak causing the pedal to go low. check the fluid level and if it is low or empty then there is a problem, could be a rotted brake line leaking or a wheel cylinder leaking.

When truck is off,pedal is hard. after starting, pedal goes to floor. replaced master cylinder,bled brakes. changed front and rear pads.


I would inspect the brake booster for vacuum leak. When the booster is not working you get a hard pedal, yet when you start the vehicle the pedal will hit the floor because of the damaged diaphram inside the brake booster.

BRAKES BLED PEDAL GOES TO FLOOR WHEN STARTED


if a master cylinder is bad and you are sure you have all the air out and no leaks.pedal will go to floor , running or not. if booster is bad it will cause a hard pedal. but if master cylinder is bad it will turn on a brake light on dash if it works. make sure the wheel cylinders are not leaking. I beleive that the master cylinder is bad, or you have a leak somewhere. If the master cylinder is functioning properly, the brake pedal will depress to a certain depth and no further.

I have a 1991 honda civic dx seadan. i change the brake caliper and the power booster and master cylinder and bleed the brakes with the car engine off. but when you turn the car on the brake pedal go...


There's still air in the lines, just open the bleeder screws all of them and gravity bleed them , take the resovoir cap off and make sure you keep fluid in it . This may take some time but you will be happy when done. If you bleed them with a friend do one at a time pump the pedal, keep pressure on pedal and open the bleeder screw. when pedal goes to the floor repeat the process until its only fluid that exits the bleeder. Repeat this for the rest of the bleeders.

Brakes have hardly any pressure


sounds like there is a leak in the system or you need to bleed your brakes. I'd get it checked by mechanic.
