      If there are no brake fluid leaks, and there is no air in the system, then you'll probably need to replace the master cylinder.

      Take into your auto parts store like advance auto parts and see if they can scan for fault codes before throwing money at it.

    Brakes make clicking sound
    Whenever I'm driving and I have to apply my brakes they make a clicking sound. I've had new brake pads put on. Also my pedal vibrates some too.

      If your rotors are warped that would most likely be the cause of the clicking noise. If you can feel the brake pedal pulsing when you brake it's time to fit new pads and rotors, don't forget to break them in gently. The only other thing I can think of that could make that kind of noise would be wheel bearings but my money's on the rotors.

    When applying the brakes on hard stopping the peddle stops goes to the floor and stays.
    I have to step on it again to get it to return to the normal hight.Only does it during hard stop.No abs light on.

      I believe that you are experiencing false abs activation which is usually caused bt=y a bad left or right front wheel speed sensor. This is diagnosed with the use of a scan tool and a road test while viewing live sensor data of the speed sensors. One of them will read incorrect or not at all sometimes. *Usually*

      I was told by a master tech that it was the master cyclinder.That the vavle was sticking causing this problem.He ask me about the ABS but the light never came on or flashed.On another car years ago I had colasping brake lines causing the peddle to stick.

      After re-reading your details I agree about the master cylinder possibly being the cause, but I have never seen a bad master cylinder only fail under hard stopping, never. A bad master is a bad master and if you are sitting still and you play with the pedal some the pedal will usually sink down like you describe. But, if no other place to go, change the master and see.

    I have replaced brake pads, calipers and rotors. Bleed the system. The brakes work, but the pedal is soft.
    I think a master cylinder is needed, and maybe a brake booster. But how do i test the booster? Thanks

      If piston in caliper is not moving correctly then you will have to either replace seals in piston or by a new caliper, It could just need fluid bled to get air out.
    • Jason Marks

      The calipers are designed to be "floating". The bolts that hold the caliper on are suppose to float freely in the bushing. This allows the caliper to "self adjust" when you put on the brake, that way even pressure is distributed to the inner pad and outer pad, since the caliper piston is only on one side (inner). There is really no way to correct a frozen caliper except replace it, they are cheap and not worth trying to unstick a frozen caliper pin. Its just not worth it. Road salt, water and dirt and corrosion all contribute to this "time honored" problem. If you ignore this issue, you will have uneven break wear, excessive pedal effort and likely you will ruin a rotor pretty quickly from overheating or simply the inner pad grinds down to nothing and the squeal sensor is never engaged because the frozen caliper won't catch the outer pad.

      front sencers need to be removed and cleaned.When they get dirty the abs will actervate when comming to a normal stop ( just before you come to a compleat stop)

    Soft brake pedal, mastercylinder went dry. bled brakes all around.
    when bleeding back brakes very little to no fluid unless i pump the brake pedal (engine running) with just a depress and hold very little to no fluid. i have fluid coming from master cylinder to abs, but nothing from abs to rear wheels, front works great.
    • Spoon Sports

      Start with the wheel closest to the master and end with the one the farthest away. If you've been opening the bleeders and just pumping the pedal you most likely have a whole lot of air in the line now so it may take a while to get it all out. Have you checked you proportioning valve?

    Replaced brake booster now brake pedal goes to floor no brakes
    • HouseCallAuto

      I need to know what the problem was before you replaced the booster, but, aside from that, the booster will not cause a pedal to go to the floor when it fails. The brake hydraulic system will cause that. Could be a bad master cyl or a leak in a rusted through steel brake line. I am always fixing these kinds of problems every few weeks.

      figured just a bad brake booster, sons truck, vaccum line unhooked and pluggged. had to stand on brake pedal to stop. when i replaced the booster and hooked up line then pedal went to the floor. kinda figured mast. cylinder just didn't figure on both goin out at t he same time.

    Best brake manufactures
    I need rotors and pads front and back but there are so many brands, how do I know I am getting a quality brand?
    • Camarozen

      Ceramic pads are usually the logest lasting, although with some rotors and vehicles cause premature rotor failure. I would suggest going with a high performance manufacturer, which you can find on aftermarket part supplier's web sites like Summit and Jegs. EBC and wilwood both make great products, however any product that meets manufacturer standards will work satisfactoroly.
