Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
This is not an uncommon problem.
if you are certain there are no fluid leaks anywhere in the system then look here.
the master cylinder is mounted to the power brake booster there are probably two or three nuts holding them together, remove these nuts and pull the master cylinder forward, now look in to the front of the power booster with a flash light, if you see any signs of brake fluid there than your master cylinder is bad. you want to correct this soon because that fluid is being sucked into the egine and through the combustion chambers. you should replace the power booster as well because it will be contaminated, although you can reuse the power booster untill it fails, i believe there is a gasket or o-ring in between the master cylinder and power booster aswell, make sure you look for it and dont leave it out.
