There are several things that you need to do to get a good pedal. Start bleeding the brakes on the right rear then left rear then right front then left front. also when bleeding the brakes DON'T PUMP THE PEDAL Push it down once to keep from mixing the air with the fluid. Then let off of the pedal and wait 5 seconds before pumping once again. This takes longer but it is effective. Make sure you have new fluid going through the system at the right rear before going to the next wheel.

Why does brake pedal go to floor on 1991 buick park avenue?

First, make sure the master cylinder is filled with brake fluid. If it is low, there may be a leak somewhere in the brake lines or a brake cylinder. If the master cylinder is bad, you can normally pump the brakes up, but the pedal will slowly sink to the floor again. The master cylinder needs to be replaced or repaired.

== == Sounds like you have a leak somewhere in your brake system. Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid and bleed off all four calipers. Once you have brakes again check the system for leaks at the calipers, master cylinder and along the brake lines.
