You have a 1989 Ford Aerostar changed the pads and mastercylinder and the wheel cylinders and still every 5 pumps of the brakes the pedal goes to the floor HELP?
I would suspect you have purchased a defective master cylinder, especially if it was a rebuilt unit. Also make sure you have bled the system properly & completely to remove all air. Bleed in this order. RR-LR-RF-LF The master cylinder must be bench bled prior to installing ; I suspect you have air in the system if you did not bench bleed the master cylinder prior to installing it on your vehicle.Try this: obtain a quart of brake fluid and rebleed the system; you want it to be this problem vs removing parts and starting over. I hope this helps you. Mark
98 dodge durango What is wrong when the brakes get stuck what can be done or what needs to be changed?
There is brake hardware and lubrication that needs to be replaced. The brake hardware and lubrication that goes on the hardware allows for the brakes to easily release. Now you may want to check to see if your calipers are sticking, or even check to see if the wheel cylinders for your rear brakes are frozen. I am a Brakes Plus Employee.
This isn't a difficult job to do. The first thing is to prepare. Purchase the masterclinder first. Most will come with a brake bleeding hose assembly. It should have two plastic fittings with a length of hose. Screw the fittings in the right holes where the brakes hoses will be. Attach the hoses to the fittings. Place the mastercylinder in a vise or stabilize it somehow. Pour brake fluid into it. Place the ends of…
What would make a busted air noise while holding the brake pedal to the floor in a 1994 gmc sierra 1500 pick up truck?
One way is to have a helper to pump the brakes. Fill with fluid and pump brakes until the pedal is hard. Use a wrench and loosen the bleeder on one caliper. Any air will come out and the pedal will sink to the floor. Repeat the procedure until all air is removed and nothing but fluid comes out. Repeat procedure on every other brake assembly being sure that brake mastercylinder is kept full of…
If I were asking here it would mean I have never changed brakes before. Although the process is fairly simple you can do things wrong that would prevent the brakes from working properly. Your first time needs to be with the oversight of someone who has changed brakes before. Better yet, have a qualified mechanic do it for you. Your life and the lives of others may hang in the balance.
If the brakes are disc brakes then try opening the bleed screws on the calipers and see if the pressure releases if not then remove the calipers and replace because the piston is probably frozen or you can try pushing in the piston with a c-clamp,if that doesnt work replace the calipers as noted. If the brakes are drum brakes then check your brake cylinders to see if they are leaking if so you can…
Why would you lose pressure in your brake pad after changing the back brakes on a 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix?
This is a far reaching question that needs more clarification. There are cylinders where the pistons are located. If you have a clutch then you have a clutch master and slave cylinder. On the brakes you have a master cylinder and wheel cylinders. And the beat goes on. You need to distinguish as to which cylinder you are referring.
What would cause the wheel cylinders not to move when brakes are applied in bleeding the brakes on a 1980 chevy van; and when bleeding the pedal does not go to the floor?
Without seeing it, I would say that the wheel cylinders may have rust/corrision in them preventing them from moving in their bores.That would explain why the pedal does not go to the floor when trying to bleed them. Crack the bleeders open and see of fluid comes out either one. IF it does, replace the wheel cylinders. IF not, there may be a restriction further up the line, collapsed brake hoses, master cylinder or a…
After replacing the master cylinder on your 1996 Ford Aerostar the warning lights on the dash stay lit what is the problem?
Your brakes need bleeding. And if you have antilock brakes, you should take it to a shop to bleed them. It takes special tools to bleed antilock brakes. If you have regular brakes you can bleed them yourself. Could go into further detail but would take too long to explain. Refer to a repair manual. Note: bleeding antilock brakes without first disconnecting the sensor will damage the sensor and the antilock function will no longer…
What causes a 1995 Chevy tracker to make a groaning or a squealing noise at the front rotor brakes during a stop?
1991 Ford Aerostar both brakelights are on I do not have the owners manual One light is for the rear antilock brakes and the other states brakes I P What do these mean I just bled the brakes?

Brake Pedal goes to floor after changing brakes on 2003 Saturn L200 and bleeding brakes throughly. What could be problem Car is mint too new to be master cylinder 30K miles.?
For a 95 Ford Windstar the brakes went and the front brakes have been changed with new pads and rotors - Back brakes were adjusted and there are still no brakes - what else to do to fix it?
what you have could be one of three problems. Check your reservoir to see if it has plenty of brake fluid, bleed your brakes,they may of lost the fluid while changing brakes. Also, if you have a vacuum leak it will cause your brakes not to work. Or it could be your master cylinder or your vacuum booster that has went bad. brewski
How do you figure out how to check brakes cylinders on 1994 GMC sierra pu and or find out how fix no brake pressure but still have brakes at bottom of peddle?
Make sure master cylinder is full Have assistant step on brake pedal Walk around vehicle and look to see if any wheel is wet (from leaking wheel cylinder) See if any brake line is leaking Make sure rear brakes are adjusted properly (if drum brakes) Check to make sure caliper slides are not frozen (not allowing disc brakes to self-adjust)
1995 dodge caravan front right brake has been changed twice and it still smokes what is the problem?
Hello, I have had a similar problem with a car in the past. In the Brake Line going to that wheel you will find there is a high pressure Rubber hose in that line. Its likely that the inner lining of that hose has failed, and causes a blockage. Also, did you change the brake Cylinders that operate the wheel brake, in the wheel, when the brakes were fixed ? Cheers.
Bleed the rear brakes and add new brake fluid. Typically the brakes feeling as if they give too much or "squishy" is from small air bubbles in the brake line...so by bleeding and adding new fluid you let out the small bubbles which cause the squishiness. When you changed the brakes many people tend to hit the line as well as not clamp them properly and therefore render the brakes "squishy". Hope this helps. J
