SOURCE: Brake pedal goes too far
You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid

Is the engine also running poor such as tries to stall or the RPM is high? Is there an unusual suction type sound? Check the vacum hose to the brake booster, if loose, cracked or a hole in it.
This is about a 1/2" diameter hose and goes to the booster from the engine for power brake assist.

You have to remove the air trapped in the hydraulic system. Look at change of brakefluid in a repair handbook and perform it as described.
Useful to change the brakefluid at least once every five years anyway.

Testimonial: "Saved me time, money and most importantly, perhaps my life!"
Need to buy a tool at auto parts store ,that
fits the rear caliper piston,so you can turn it
clockwise. ( Looks like a cube) $8.00
What your doing is actually turning in or back -- the
parking brake adjuster.
The tool will be turned with a 3/8" extension & ratchet
Opening the bleeder valve will help as you have to
push the piston in as well as turn it in.
Need to bleed all 4 wheels every 2 years anyway.
You may have to file the tool to get a combination
that will work
I had to do that with the Lincoln LS
Once the pads are on,you ratchet up the parking
brake,bringing the pads in contact with the rotors.
Press the brake pedal a few times before going into
rev or drive, to seat pads
The notch on the caliper piston, goes to the top
so the pin on pads will fit
