My break pedal goes to the floor

There are several causes for the brake pedal going to the floor:
- Broken seals in brake`s principal pump.
- Broken seals on rear brake's cylinder. (big lieak on wheel)
- Worn rear brake shoes, making seal travel out of cylinder. (big leak on wheel)
- Leak on tubings.
- Empty brake fluid deposit.

Poor Traction

Worn out seals in the master brake cylinder or air in the brake line or one or more brake shoes at a wheel are used up and the week brake cylinder is fully extending past it's usual travel length. Last thing is rear brakes may be out of adjustment. Try backing up several times applying the brakes to stop, this should adjust the rear brakes. Cars require maintenance.

Brake peadal has a lot of travel and has not very little braking effort

This is more than likely down to either a leaking system (so check your brake fluid level) and under car for any obvious leaks or it will be the brake master cylinder
Hope this helps

    Brake pedal goes too far down. Brakes still stop car fine. Too much pedal travel. 2005 model year.

    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
