Default Brake problem on Toyota Corolla

Hi All,

Recently I changed the rotor, pads and shoes for front and rear brake
because I found I have to press brake really hard to stop the car when
the car is running around 65/hour.

After I changed everything(rotor, pads and shoes), also bleed the
brake oil in the system, but I didn't see any improvment on the brake.
I still press really hard in order to stop the car.

Please help and tell me what I should do next.

Thanks in advance

Allan

Default Re: Brake problem on Toyota Corolla

The master cylinder runs on two circuits and if one has failed and the
other is working, then presumabely you can stop but with greater
pressure. How old is the car and how many miles? I presume the front was
badly worn, so it must have some mileage on it. If you pull the hand
brake concurrently with pressing the pedal, does it stop faster? I'd bet
that the master cylinder is shot.
