Brake pedals are designed to operate on a give-and-take principle. When you depress the pedal with your foot, it causes the brake pads to press against and grip the rotor or drum that is mounted behind them. This slows down drive shafts which in turn slows down wheels, thus slowing down your vehicle or stopping it altogether if you keep depressing the pedal. Brake pedals work as they should when engine running for most people, so what could be causing yours not to? The most common culprits for brake problems when engine running are the brake fluid level and/or the brakes pads. Brake fluid should be at a certain level, measured by inserting a dipstick into your master cylinder reservoir. When it’s low you’re able to see on the stick how much was in there before you added any new fluids so now have no idea what kind of condition your braking system is currently in. You can avoid this problem entirely if you buy an inexpensive kit that will allow you to measure yourself instead of relying on guesswork! If your brake pedal goes to floor when engine running because of brake pad wear, then they need replacement as soon as possible. If nothing else changes, one day they’ll go all
