I will start from the top, bleed the mc, then lines from farthest to closest to mc. if problem not solved, then wheel cylinders and start all over again. If it still exists, FOR SALE!

problem #1

Tundra Limited 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,008 miles

2004 Tundra 4x4 Ltd. developed recurring problem of getting air into the brake lines.

Started all of a sudden, brake pedal started going further and further down to the floor

I took all of the wheels and drums off looking for leaks. Found none.Bled the brakes

and found air in the right front caliper and left rear line. This was a temporary fix, each day the pedal went down more. Took it to the Toyota dealer, they did the same thing I did, could find nothing wrong, bled the system, found air in the right rear line. Three days later pedal was on the floor again, air in the right rear line. Had the right rear wheel cylinder changed for $168.92. Three days later pedal is back on the floor. Have not lost a drop of brake fluid. Emailed a complaint to Toyota Customer Care three times before I received a reply that they do not offer technical assistance! Currently waiting for a new master cylinder to try that???? Any one have any idea what is the problem.

I had new front pads installed 6 months ago and they are still like new, the rear shoes are good, there is no fluid leaking anywhere, the reservoir is always full.
