Brake Pedal Goes to Floor

The brake pedal goes to floor when the brake is lightly applied.

Free car diagnostic: If brake pedal goes to floor when the brake is applied, it usually means that there is a leak on the master cylinder. Master cylinder consists of a primary and secondary pistons which operates on either the front or rear brakes. Both pistons is sealed with a component called “cup” when the brake pedal goes to floor the most likely to happen is that the primary cup that seals the primary piston is leaking brake fluid even when brake is lightly applied.

Now, to fix this problem you need to replace the master cylinder. There is available rebuilt cylinder if you want a cheaper master cylinder. For safety purposes never drive the car instead have the car towed to the nearest reputable shop that specialized in brake repair. Have a mechanic inspect the brake system, explain to the mechanic what you think is the problem and ask to check the cylinder to confirm your findings.
