My brakes go all the way to the floor with no resistance. I had a leak in the rear where the hard line turns into the steel braided hose. I took it apart and the washer was just crooked, so I pushed it back in and hook it up. A lot of fluid came out so I decided to bleed the brakes. After I was done bleeding them I hop in and the brakes go straight to the floor. I bled them a couple more times with the same result. I replaced the master cyclinder and it's stilling not working. I bought a brake booster but I haven't put it in yet incase I can find a solution to the problem before hand.


-My axle is rotated and i've read that sometimes rotated axles can trap air in the calibers
-My "helper" decided to help me adjust my emergency brake(I was going to do that after the leak was fixed) while I was taking care of the leak and now my brake light stays on and i'm not sure if it has to do with my emergency brake or something with what i did. Not sure if this has anything to do with it but i'm just throwing it out there.


Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Did you bench bleed your master cyl, or bleed it at all? It's not leaking currently correct?

THere are currently no leaks on anything and yes I bench bled the master cyclinder.

Calibers are on correct, the bleeder valves are up but the brakes worked fine before I tried fixing the leak. THat's whats so confusing to me

Seems like there's air trapped somewhere still if there's no leaks. Did you try running a lot through, or just a quick bleed? I'd probably consider running a full flush amount through and then go from there. Good luck with it though!

I still have the brake booster to put on so if it's not that then it's clearly me being an idiot bleeding the breaks. I've used a vacuum bleeder after I couldn't figure it out doing it the two man way.
