Hello all,

I am having brake issues. I have to pump my brake pedal a few times to get decent brake action. Then if I hold firm pressure on the pedal it slowly travels to the floor. I an not losing any fluid. My assumption is that the master cylinder is leaking internally. Am I thinking correctly here?

Thanks in advance!

Or you have a leak at a caliper or line.

And that's what I get for walking and trying to read at the same time.

If you're sure you're not leaking fluid then yeah, sounds like the symptoms of a bad master cylinder.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll order up a master and swap it out.
