SOURCE: front brakes are sticking on

Ok Have you recently replaced the pads? Do they act normal after they cool down? Are the pads in good condition, pads that are so worn that the caliper pistons come out beond their normal limit may stick there due to excessively worn pads. If so make sure they are at least factory grade quality Good are bendix, the only thing that can cause your symptoms is a bad master cylinder because it affects BOTH front calipers equally if it was a caliper it is likely to affect only ONE. Let me ask you this happens after driving in heavy traffic or after along drive?
If So there have been countless cases of boiling brake fluid, Old Brake Fluid gathers moisture and its boiling point is lowered, Fluch out ALL the old brake fluid and have new put it.

also is there any chance even the slightest chance that something other than brake fluid even a drop or two is enough to do damage. has been added to the master cylinder at any time? If so you need to replace EVERY PART IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM INCLUDING THE ABS CONTROLLER THAT HAS ANY RUBBER PIECES IN IT CALIPERS HOSES WHEEL CYLINDERS,MASTER CYLINDER just for your information.
I believe you have a bad master cylinder but do not buy a rebuilt one only bran new and preferably from the dealer.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you give me a good rating if you feel my information is helpful.
Thank you ,Randy

SOURCE: brake pedal will not depress

Let the fluid out of the master cylinder or from a line. If the pedel  then goes down w/o the fluid, then the booster is working ok. Rebuild or replace the master cylinder.

No brakes on a 1986 honda accord

Did you get a good bleed with fluid coming out at all four wheels? If they bled good, and the pedal still goes to the floor, you need to check the brake master cylinder-it is probably shot with an internal leak. An internal leak will not let fluid pressure build up, so no brakes.

Did you keep the brake fluid reservoir from going dry while bleeding? If it went real low, air might have got back into the lines.

It is not uncommon when bleeding brakes on an older vehicle for the master cylinder to suddenly develop an internal leak and require replacement . Here's why: pushing the pedal all the way to the floor causes the master's piston to push in farther than ever before. The rubber cups then travel over a section of the cylinder not usually touched by the cups-old fluid can develop a crud there and when the piston pushes over it, the cups can get ruined. To avoid this when bleeding brakes, put a short piece of 2X4 wood block under the pedal. Then the pedal will not extend the master's piston beyond it's normal travel. Of course on a new master cylinder, you do not have to do this. A new master cylinder does require bench bleeding before installing, however, to ensure no air pockets develop from there.

My brake pedal went to the floor, brought it in...They told me it was the Master Cylinder. They changed it and put in a brand new master cylinder but it still seems like the brake pedal goes further t

The extra brake travel can be;
1. air still in the brake lines and need bleeding
2. if there are brake drums on the rear they may be out of adjustment
3. if there are warped brake disc or caliper problems that will add to the brake travel

1997 goldwing. When I apply the rear brake, the pedal has no resistance and does not apply the brakes???

You either have a brake fluid leak either in the caliper or in a brake line or even a bad master cylinder. Either way you have air in you line I think. Check closely for leaks before any thing else. If you have lots of fluid in the syste mand no leaks, I would say that you need to bleed the brake. If that does not work, maybe the master cylinder need to be inspected or rebuilt Make sure the fluid is clean and new. Remember that when you use the foot brake, it applies the rear and also the one front brake thru a purportioning valve. That brake and line will have to be considered also.

No rear brakes on 1985 honda goldwing aspencade. What could be the problem ?

Check your rear brake resevoir. Fill it with Dot 4 brake fluid and proceed to bleed the brakes, If this does not resore your braking and there is no sign of a leak on the rear caliper, you will have to replace the seals in the master cylinder, or the complete cylinder.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 1982 goldwing interstate 1100? Tom

There is no adjustment other than pedal height , which is adjusted at the master cylinder by loosening the lock nut and turning the stud that pushes on the piston. If the the brake is sticking , take the master cylinder apart and make sure the brake fluid feeder(big hole) and the fluid return hole(pin hole) are both clear. Also make sure the caliper is clean and floating back and forth. That is so one brake pad does not wear out faster than the other.

The brake pedal is fine with engine off. When started the pedal drops almost to the floor.Fluid level is fine, I have jacked up all 4 wheels and checked if the brakes are working- they are.....

the master cylinder has a bypassing issue. double check your rear brakes for proper adjustment and if good, replace the master cylinder and bleed the system. happy new year
