After replacing brake rotors and pads brake pedal remains on floor?

Brake pedal got loose,the pedal is fine when engine is off,but goes to floor when car is started.

The problem started after replace rotors and pads.This indicates,the part replacing is not done properly.

Clamp off the front brake hoses one at a time and see which wheel is causing the trouble.Also double check the pad installation and bleed the caliper.

Use a set of vise grips to clamp the brake hoses.
Look carefully at the brake pads and the rotor when you step on the brake pedal does the rotor flex back and fourth, Also check to make sure you do not have intake or a twist in the brake hose.

But if all checks out to be ok,then problem is possibly the master cylinder.It has to be inspected and replaced.

This will help.
Thanks.

Brake pedal firm when engine not running goes to floor after engine starts?

http://technoanswers.blogspot.in/2012/02/brake-pedal-firm-when-engine-not.html



Brake pedal firm when engine not running goes to floor after engine starts?

My brake pedal goes to the floor after starting the engine.
I have a nice firm brake pedal when the car is not running, as soon as Istart the engine, the pedal goes almost to floor.Brake pedal goes almost to the floor after engine starts.
Brake pedal goes to floor when engine on.
Brake pedal goes to the floor.
Brake pedal goes to floor only when engine running.
Brake Pedal goes right to floor when engine starts.

This types of queries are asked by many customers.
In this case the car is toyota Camry.It has ABS brake system.

But this types of problems are very common in ABS brake system cars.

In this case the brake is proper when engine is up,but as soon the engine is started the brake pedal goes to floor.
Holding the foot on the brake when engine is started the pedal goes to the floor .

On basis of this issue,the details to troubleshoot the problem is as follows :----
This types of problems basically occurs after replacing brake pads and brake shoes or if the brake pads and shoes worn out.
If this parts are replaced,but not installed properly,such problem will be noticed.
If you have solid pedal pressure with the engine off is unlikely any air in the hydraulic system. The ABS actuator assembly is not activated and the hydraulic circuits would be going through the actuator assembly and the wheel cylinders. Unless the abs actuator motor buzzes or has been activated is unlikely any air is trapped in the assembly itself. Sometimes well the engine is running if you overpower the brake pedal it can appear as though it is going down too far. If you're comfortable with putting in drive I would attempt to see if the brakes. Under normal conditions. All of this is assuming that you have all of the brake-shoes Springs and retainers installed correctly and adjusted correctly. If the brake drums and shoes are not adjusted correctly you can get over travel due to the vacuum booster applying excessive pressure that you normally would not get with the engine not running. This also is true for the front brake pads. Under vacuum booster pressure if the pads are not installed correctly it can cause a low or spongy pedal. You could remove all the wheels and see how much play you have in the rear brake shoes to drum travel and then have someone push the brake pedal to make sure that the calipers are not flexing or the brake pads are not moving excessively. This would be the only other possible solution.

If you are dealing your brake repair job yourself,then i recommend you to do it very properly.
I've had a lot of apprentices newbie's do four-wheel brake jobs with one wheel cylinder they bleed the brakes then get in and say I start the car and the pedal drops too far. A lot of this is due to over forcing the brake pedal and once the vehicle is driven they find that the stopping power is normal. Obviously you need to use caution when first starting to break this in. If the brakes start to wear in and are adjusted properly you should be able to stop with normal pressure without overpowering the brake pedal.

The low brake pedal  cab be the issue with the rear brakes out of adjustment or the front pads being stuck in the holders. 

This details will help you.
Thanks.

Obd Code P0763 on Lexus?

In this types of problem,dealer will mostly say to replace transmission.
This code specifically says there is an open or short in the S3 solenoid. If the transmission fluid is not burned and otherwise is in good condition I'm not sure why Lexus would want to replace the transmission other than liability reasons. The shift solenoid S3 or otherwise known as the shift solenoid three-way valve number two.The solenoid retails for approx $330. Normally the labor would be about two or three hours. At this point because this is an electrical malfunction and solenoid is easily tested, just test the solenoid and replace the one solenoid. There's no need to replace all of the other solenoid or the entire valve body assembly.Just getting the faulty solenoid replaced will solve the problem.

This will help.
Thanks.

Check engine light flashing?

This problem is noticed on Lexus Rx 330.
If the check engine light starts to flash this means you have a cylinder misfire. Cylinder misfire will damaged the catalytic converters if driven extended periods of time. If you can get to a nearby AutoZone or similar parts store in most states they do free engine code reads. With this malfunction code number in the engine control computer it will help you to troubleshoot the problem further.

This will help.

Gas door hinges broken on Toyota?

For this problem,get the new gas door.
Toyota offers or makes available a new gas door that comes with the hinge assembly. You would need to have the gas door painted. The rivets need to be drilled and the new door installed with new rivets. It is not a very complicated repair unless you do not have a rivet gun. Some parts stores rent rivet guns.So this makes your task easy.

this will help.
