well, check the brake lines for leakage after adding brake fluid to the full mark. If the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, it's likely there is a leak somewhere after the master cylinder. If the pedal gets hard after adding fluid, and pumping it several times with the car off, then the master cylinder is still ok.
If air has gotten into the master cylinder, it may have to be bled out on a bench, or using a scanner if that's the way your vehicle is.
Bleeding the Brake System (ABS)
Auto Bleed Procedure
Perform a manual bleeding procedure. If the brake pedal height and firmness results are not achieved, perform the auto bleed procedure below.
Perform this procedure when replacing the brake pressure modulator valve or electro-hydraulic control unit.
- Perform the manual brake bleeding procedure. Refer to Bleeding the Brake System (non-ABS).
- Check the master cylinder fluid level often to prevent running the system dry.
- Press the brake pedal firmly and run the Scan Tool Automated Bleed Procedure (for Gas engines) once, or the Function Test (for Diesel engines) four times. Make sure to release the brake pedal between each test.
- Perform the manual bleed procedure again. This should remove the remaining air from the brake system.
- Bleed the system as many times as needed to obtain the appropriate feel of the brake pedal.
