Honda Civic Break not working

I have Honda Civic 98, coupe, no ABS. my brakes are not working when I turn the wheel completly on either side. but when I turn the wheel back to straight and pump the brake paddle couple of times then it works fine. it looses air somewhere. I checked back side wheel cylinder , I did front wheel and back wheel bleeding couple oftimes , I have replaced new master cylinder, but still its not working. I am wondering if there is any problem with the brake booster. but I cant see any leckage anywhere and not loosign brake power fluid. Please let me know the solution. thanks in advance

You need to remove the front wheels and check for any signs of extreme pad wear on both sides, heat buildup, try turning each wheel by hand while off the ground, and look for any loose hardware nut bolts etc.

you may need a hub bearing. do you know which side? they're relatively easy to check; just jack up rear of car, release e-brake and rotate each wheel, listening for any noise or rumble; another way is to place your hand on the coil spring while spinning the wheel, as any rumbling that can't be heard will be felt in the spring. hope this helps.

sorry to tell you this but it sounds like the wheel bearing was put in backwards on one or both sides. the front wheel bearings have a black speed ring built in and that is what your speed sensor reads off. - this is common as the front bearings will install either way- hope this helps

I dont know wat model civic i have =/

In the door sill on the drivers side, there should be the model description, as well as body, trim, and paint color codes. If not, the dealer can tell you based on the last 8 of your VIN.

Anti lock brakes

Often the vehicle's VIN number will have a digit that indicates whether you have ABS or not, and they can enter your VIN number to see whether you do. I'm surprised they didn't try this, but it may not be the case with Honda. If you have ABS, there will be a wheel speed sensor at each corner of the car, plugged into the wheel hub. You could check for that.
