Question about 1988 Volvo 240
We bled the brakes and found the fluid leaking out of a drainage nipple so tightend it and still the pedal goes to the floor. What did we do wrong or is it another problem, master cylinder?
BLEED SYSTEM AGAIN SEVERAL TRIES, IF PROBLEM PERSISTS WILL NEED MASTER CYLINDER REPLACED AND SUGGEST ALSO THE JUNCTION BLOCK REPLACEMENT. 2 SERIES VOLVOS ARE NOTORIOUS OF HAVING BAD MASTER CYLINDERS. GOOD LUCK

You will have to bleed them again. air must have gotten in while (nipple) was still loose.
