The reason for spongy breaks is because there is an air pcket tuck somewhere in the system. you will need to blead all the lines. start from the passengers rear thank go to the drivers rear than the passangers front than the drivers front. You need to kep fluid in the resivour while doing this. and you will need to look for a steady stream of brake fluid before closing the bleader valve or yo will not get the air pcket out of the line.

Spongy break and empty fluid container

I would strongly recommend you get a mechanic to have a look as this should not happen and breaks are not a toy.
But if you choose not to then you need to bleed the brakes.
This is done with two people.
1 Open the cap on the brake fluid this is called the master cylinder make shore it stays full.
2 Go to the wheel that is furthest from the master cylinder usually rear passenger side.
3 Look at the break assembly from behind the wheel there will be a little thing with a black cap on it or just a nipple funny looking thing with a very small hole at the top with a spot for a small spanner at the base.
4 Find a spanner that fits make shore it is the correct one as you do not want to strip it.
5 Get the other person to press the break pedal for 5 times then they keep their foot pressing and hold.
6 You undo the nut the peddle will go to the floor and break fluid will come out.
7 You then tighten the nut they can let go of the peddle do this 5 times.
Do all the wheels from the furthest one from the master cylinder to the closest.
Let me know how it goes.

Brakes are spongy

Did you also bleed the rear brakes? Also try the gravity bleed method working from the right rear wheel, then left rear, right front, then left front. Be SURE to keep the master cylinder full at all times while bleeding.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

My 97 Chevy Blazer has spongy brakes. Master cylinder was replaced and brake booster was replaced. Braked lines were bled and brakes are still spongy. Can anyone help?

you must have air trapped in the system still, dont drive this car until this problem is fixed, please, for safety reasons. if you dont know how to bleed the brakes have a professional do the work. the fluid might have been contaminated and should be totally reserviced, DOT 3 fluid or better.
can you rate this!
