Asked by Sep 10, 2017 at 06:11 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Brakes have been bled and no air in lines. Hissing
sound near master cylinder when brake pedal goes
to the floor. Sometimes it goes to the floor other
times it doesn't. When it does front tires keep
rotating while pedal is pressed, rear tires stop.

1 Answer


Maybe your master cylinder is worn out. The hissing is probably the brake booster.
