CHANGE THE PROPORTIONING VALVE. IT IS BAD. THE PRICE IS 345.00 AT FORD. WHEN YOU DO YOUR BRAKES MAKE SURE THAT YOU OPEN ALL YOUR BLEEDER ON ALL BRAKES

Honestly your guess is as good as mine. But I don't think the master cylinder is NOT bad you still have air in the system. Get a big bottle of brake fluid bleed all four sides until you run out of fluid or your brakes work properly. You should divide the bottle's content in four, then use each quantity in each side. You'll be removing air and contaminated fluid from the system. Get a small hose that fits on the bleeders and an appropriate container. I have a good feeling if you do this your brakes will work just fine. I don't know how you are bleeding the brakes. I'll let you know the proper way just in case. This is a two man job, with the wheel off, have someone start the car. Have them pump the brakes a few times to get pressure. 1With the brake pedal UP open the bleeder, 2then have your assistant press the brake pedal all the way down and leave it completely pressed down. 3Close the bleeder valve, once close and only with the valve closed have'm release the brake. Repeat as necessary, bake depressed, open valve first then press brake. DO NOT depress until valve completly closed. Close valve THEN depress. Good Luck!

typically if you pump the brakes and it gets harder by each pump the master cylinder is good.Check all calipers for leaks,and rubber hoses..still no signs of leaks then open the bleeder screws on both front calipers and let them drip for about 15 minutes,and keeping the resivoir full of fluid..tighten the bleeders and pump them up..hopefully they work and all it was is a little air in them still.

I take it you have a rebuilt master cylinder. (It can happen to new ones also!) It is quite possible that the 2nd piston seal in the master cylinder is either installed incorrectly or was damaged during installation by who ever assembled it. You can install a PLUG in the front piston outlet hole and try it again. If it is still spongy.... the replacement Master cylinder is bad. (my therory... when in doubt change it out... when it comes to master cylinders)
Take the cylinder back and get another one. (warranty!!!) I have had this happen a few times over the years. Just one of those misfortunes of the task.
Thanks for using FixYa.
