    While sitting at a light the brake pedal went to the floor, so my son ( a mechanic( and I changed the master cyclinder. Then, after bleeding the entire system we could get good, solid pedal. But, when we would start the thing we would lose all brakes so we replaced the boost

    booster, thinking it was a vaccumn problem. We still have that problem.

    You possibly have a leak,if it has drums in the back,the wheel cylinders could possibly be your problem if not you are not bleeding your breaks right.check to see if every bleeder valve has liquid going through them,if not proportioner valve might be bad or brake lines or the master cylinder could possibly defective it has been know to happen

    While sitting at a light the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. Oh, before I go further, this is one that the ABS is mounted to the Master Cyclinder. My son and I replaced the MC and after bleeding the system we had good pedal till we started the car we ;ost alol brakes, thinking the booster was damaged we then replaced it. We are still having the same problem, no brakes with engine running. And if I clamp off the vacumn line from the manfold to the boster I have brake pedal. Please help if you can, next think is a trip to dealer and I don't trust the one in our town. Thanks, Bob

When starting the car, the pedal will start to sink to the floor ensuring the master cylinder is doing it's job. The job of the master cylinder is to multiply the force of your foot to hydraulically apply the brakes.
Do this:
Turn on the car. Then turn it off again. Press the brake pedal repeatedly (it should get hard). Apply constant pressure to the pedal (it should stay firm). While applying the brake start the car. The pedal should sink, ensuring that the master cylinder is doing its job.

97 Monte Carlo and the breaks sound like just air


check the brake fluid level, this is under the hood near the back wall by the drivers side. brakes are serious problem and should go to shop, they probably need the brake bled, this is where all the air is pushed out of the lines, sometimes you can get lucky and pump the brake pedal ( push down and release the brake pedal) over and over again and see if they tighten up

hope this helps
