Brake Problem?? There one time gone the next

Has Anyone else come across this problem? Sometimes I push the brakes and there is nothing there and I can push the pedal right to the floor....but the next time I might push the brake it will be fine. In both conditions when I push the brakes a second time they are good. Seems like they need to be pressured up by the first pump?

Hmmm could an air pocket in your lines be the cause of the problem?

Have you purged the system yet?

Yes, I Agree With Dieslepowered. You Should Bleed The System 1 Whole Reservoir Worth. Make Sure The Reservoir Never Completely Empties. You May Also Want To Change Your Rear Drive Oil. If You Decide To Change The Oil Watch For Any Foreign Particles. My Rear Brakes Worked About 60% Better After My First Rear Drive Oil Change.

The rear brake is a wet brake, it is located inside the rear diff.

Rear brakes are like a farm tractor. Look more like clutch plates, I believe.

Yes, The Rear Brake Is A Wet System. You Must Use A Special Oil For The Rear Drive. Sometimes The Oil Can Get Contaminated With Brake Or Other Particles And Needs To Be Changed.
