SOURCE: Brake pedal goes too far
You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

Hi I'm litoshop if you bled the system and get no results then your brake pump needs to be replaced now before replacing make sure your pads are installed correctly because if there not this to can cause this problem good luck. if this information has been useful please let us know thank you.

The fact that you say it is an intermitant problem makes me think your new master cyl is no good. If it happened all the time , I would suggest bleeding the system , and adjusting (tightening) the rear brakes.
If it is the Master , I would expect you would loose a bit of fluid , but you might not see any because it would be leaking out the end of the master and into the booster unit.
