    I have no break pressure, massive fluid leak, all lines are intact, is it the master cylinder or the break booster?
    when the engine is on and you pump and hold the breaks you can hear a sound like air hissing or releasing, there is no fluid on rotars.

      Most likely the brake fluid is leaking into the vacuum booster unit. Replace the brake master cylinder and booster.
      Check these various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few.
      The brake master cylinder cost is around $32.00 (minus core exchange) and the booster cost is around $65.00 for your vehicle.

      Check the brake hose going to the caliper. Try getting fluid before the hose by loosening
      the fitting.

    When i apply the brakes in forward or reverse, the rear end of the car drops and lifts significantly
    120000 miles just replaced a shift linkage cable, had to push it into garage so we could jack up the from of the car to do so as there is ice outside. only started having this problem after we did the repairs.

    What would make my roaters keep warping
    I changed roaters breaks and calipers,Please help

      The rotors keep warping due to a habit driving such as
      1. a foot always rests on the brake pedal and it's causing the brake pads heated up the rotors, then they will warp.
      2. When the car runs down to the hill slope, use the transmission low gear to slow down the car not the brakes.

      look up how to bleed abs system that should fix you up is your brake light flashing a code could be a problem with the abs controller. but that should make your brake light in the dash flash.
