Asked by Sep 16, 2015 at 09:56 AM about the 1992 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So i bought a used Honda. Brakes didn't start working till the pedal hit the
floor.

First I bled the system. Didn't fix the issue
Then replaced the Master Cylinder. Nothing. (Yes, I did bench bleed the
MC)
Then pinched the lines to the Calipers and Cylinder. Brakes pedal felt
amazing. So I replaced the cylinders and calipers. Bled the system. STILL
DIDN'T FIX THE DAMN ISSUE.
So I went and got a new brake booster. Bled the system again. NOPE


I do not have ABS

Did you bench fill and pump the air from the new MC? Never install one without doing that first or you may never get the air out.

Yes. I did
