If the pedal is going to the floor while you are trying to stop and not pumping back up, you could have a few conditions that would cause this.... master cylinder may be faulty, rear wheel cylinders could be blown out and leaking, front caliper(s) could be leaking. Or a brake hose could be leaking.... check at the back of the master cylinder where it bolts to the brake booster, look for signs of brake fluid where they meet, that is usually a good indication that the master cylinder is leaking past the seals and could be causing your problem. Hope this helps.

If there is still a problem with your brakes take it back to the shop and they should look at it free. They should probably fix it too.

I have replaced both my front brake pads and rotors, we have bled and rebled all the lines to make sure there wasn't any air in the lines by using a special tube thing to do this (sorry but I am not...

brakes can be a pain to fig out. first thing that pops in my mind is air in your lines. your van has ABS on it, you have to bleed your brakes a certain way. what im thanking is air in the ABS pump. alot of cars, you bleed your brakes RIGHT FRONT then LEFT REAR then LEFT FRONT then RIGHT REAR with ABS also the set up you are using to bleed your brakes if you dont use it right it will let air back in to your system. make shur your calpers arnt leaking

i hope this helps if not just let me know and i can give you some more tips

The pulsating is the ABS system. It's actually pumping the brakes incredibly fast to even the braking to all wheels.
There's sensors at each wheel and anytime it senses uneven braking, it's going to do this. You may want to pull the wheels and check the sensors and all of the connections and make sure there is no debris in any of the wheel sensor areas..

Your brakes are not the problem here. You need to have your master cylinder checked. The fluid level in the master cylinder may appear fine, but the valve inside may be failing, causing the pedal to go to the floor. This is not a hard, nor pricey repair, but if you have never delt with it before you might want a qualified technican do the repairs for you.
