brake cylinder blown out Sign In

I have a 97 geo prism and the rear driver's side wheel cylinder has blown out, the rubber cap on the back side came off. we got a new wheel cylinder and put it and bled the brakes. All was well, and the pedal got tighter after we bled them, but once we turned the car on, the pedal went to the floor again, and the back piston thing inside the wheel cylinder had come too far out, causing the rubber ring around it to block it's path back into the wheel cylinder and brake fluid to squirt out. This is the third time we have tried this and it's just not working. do you know what the issue might possibly be? Also, i made sure that there is definately enough brake fluid in the resevoir.

Did you have the drum on when you pressed on the brake pedal when it went to the floor?
