Bleeding brakes

I was bleeding the brakes on my 96 and got some pedal until I started it then it went to the floor. bleed the master cylinder and all brakes, still the same problem. Is my master cylinder toast or booster bad. Ideas?

Re: Bleeding brakes

are you doing this because of a brake job? Have you adjusted the rear drums?

Re: Bleeding brakes

After pumping the pedal a few times did it still go to the floor?

Did you start bleeding with the right rear, then left rear then pass front then driver front?

I HATE bleeding brakes and usually when this happens it's because I did something wrong.

$26 vaccum bleeder from Harbor Freight is your best friend.
