Please Help!!! My Brake Pedal Goes All The Way Down by grafikii: 8:33pm On Jun 29, 2016
Hi everyone, I need your help urgently, my car brake has gone soft, the brake pedal goes all the way down before the car stops.
The problem started when I asked my mechanic to change my brake pads and linings (rear brake), ever since then this problem has started, I have changed the master cylinder, the salvo (not sure of the spelling), I have changed the front fly wheels. Yet the problem still remains.
Driving the car is like an accident waiting to happen, I had someone bleed all 4 calipers yesterday, still the problem persists.
Please help me, Gazzuz IdaraCHODB and all.

The car is a ford escape 2004 model.

check your brake oil. fill it to required level if it is low. change your mechanic. take it to a specialist workshop, not those roadside quacks. they will diagnose and bleed if necessary . you don't have to drive the car till it is put in proper shape. don't kill yourself. use cabs or public bus till you certified it properly fixed.

take it to another mechanic, and let them check the highlighted, if you have replaced all the parts you mentioned with functional ones.

I suspect you have a small leakage along your break lines.
Your brake pedal will come up when your lines are filled with brake fluid.
If it goes down to the floor when you brake, it could be you are losing fluid somewhere so that there is not enough pressure buildup to operate you pads and shoes.

if there is no leak, then they simply need bleeding

especially if the rear wheel cylinder pop out and brake fluid dripped off, this can happen while changing the brake shoes aka (the ones you called lining )

Others have spoken well

Get a second opinion

And let's confirm that the parts are indeed functional

Don't you drive in that state - and I hope you kept all the parts you were "hoodwinked" into changing!

yEAH, I have a mechanic already. I just want to know other things about it like the fuel consumption, spare part affordability and availability, and if it's ok having it as my first ride.
Just general advise actually
