If you have no external leaks under vehicle. at the wheels or any lines, your master cylinder may be leaking internally.
usually an o ring on the plunger cracks, when you depress pedal it allows air into lines from master cylinder.
take off and go to local auto zone they should be able to bench check it.
also check for wetness at each wheel. from leaking calipiers, or wheel cylinders

Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

The brake pedal goes right to the floor


Did you try bleeding the brakes? Sounds like air in the line.

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

Spongy brakes


Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

1994 ford explorer will not stop, I have replaced the brake pads,


My vote would be the Master Cylinder.
I had a truck sit for 4 years. After getting running again, it did the same thing you're describing. No brakes. I ended up replacing the Master Cylinder to fix the problem. Just make sure you bleed the system real good.

Check fluid level fill if low. If this doesnt do it you may have air in the system you might have to bleed the air.
