First off Check to see if the brake fluid reservoir is low. If it is look for leak by following the steel lines off the master cylinder out to the wheels. You can also look for a leak at the calipers themselves. Bake fluid is almost clear when new but develops a brownish color aftera while. If there are no leaks and the business end of the brakes are in good shape then your master cylinder has most likely failed.

Breaks go to the floor


Then you have a massive leak somewhere as the brake peddle should not go all the way to the floor without some low break fluid indication. I would check brakes at each wheel as something isn't right or your not seeing it. Have someone pump the pedal and look to see if after the wheel is removed that the brake actually tightens and loosens. Remember that 4 wheels means 4 brakes, but master brake cylinder (where you add brake fluid) could be bad.

You need a helper, to slowly press the brake pedal down, as you open bleeder valve,then close before your helper gets near the floor.
Repeat until all air is out of each wheel position.
RR,LR,RF then LF. Always start from the farthest wheel and have motor running
Never pump brakes. That does nothing at all.

Brake pedal will go all the way to the floor


make sure brake fluid is full. then pump brakes for one minuite check the fluid to see if it went down or stayed full. if it went down then check the system for a leak . if it stays full then you will need a new mastercylender . i dont think you have a vacum problem cause this causes a verry stiff brake pedal not one that goes to the floor
