Why are my brakes going the the floor to stop


Asked by May 10, 2015 at 11:15 PM about the 1999 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Why is it when I hit the brake pedal It goes
near the floor when I stop

P.s. when I go near the floor and the car
starts to stop the compression is still there
so it does not sink but still what could be
causing the brake to sink it's just lower than
it should be

Could be a faulty master cylinder. Don't drI've the car with bad brakes, it's dangerous. Have the car towed to your mechanic.


and if you do drive the car make sure to put brake fluid in the master cylinder resivoir,if it does'nt stop, step on the emergency brake pedal.this is good advise ,when you need to get around with no help!


Well, if you're losing brake fluid that fast or you see it leaking, have the car towed to the shop. It's not worth risking an accident, injuring yourself and others.


its not leaking at all tho
