The brake pedal on my 2009 Ford Escape 3.0 drifts to the floor when applying the brakes. I just replaced the master cylinder, bled the brakes and it is still doing the same thing. Does anyone have insight on what the issue can be? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

The system is leaking.
Either externally which would be visible
Or Internally which is the master cylinder which you have stated that you replaced.

Thanks for the response and suggestion. However, for some reason the attachment keeps giving an error message when I click on the link.

Thanks again! I will look for this. I've also talked to some other people who said it could be the ABS pump, which is an expensive part! Apparently, this is somewhat common with Fords?

Normally ABS pump will turn on a light
Good Luck

How far from the floor will the pedal reach?

Mine is doing the same thing. I replaced the front and back brakes, Master cylinder, Brake booster and bleed the breaks 3 times. It still goes to the floor every now and then. It will stay like that for a while and then go back to normal. I think that something mingh be messed up in the abs module. Did you ever figure out what was wrong?

Post #2 sums up the issue.

Pedal goes to the floor
External leak
Or internal leak inside the master cylinder

Have one at the shop. Replacement of master cylinder 3 times. Same process bench bleed and the normal stuff, still no pedal. Ran the scan tool and there's an automatic break bleed procedure that clears the system. But yet still no pedal. Got a code abs module fault code. Which means the abs module is failing. It scares me because abs should never have the pressure. We're getting a new abs mod. Hopefully that solves it. Most cars are totaled over this part. Any questions or awnser to this let me know. Thanks

I'm adding. Also adjustment of rear to make sure. Parking brake fine. Was killing me. The module is faulty and I feel they should recall. It's too expeinceve to replace for the average consumer

Hopefully it helps y'all save some time. Don't go there first just last resort. If you replace your master and your booster is checking out then write it up. Cost me a day.
