Question about 1988 Toyota Camry
To find the problem with the brake pedal going to the floor you will need to do a complete brake inspection, pad and shoe wear, brake fluid leaks, or a bad master cylinder

That is a sign of Hydraulic failure. Start by checking the brake master cylinder for signs of leaking, Other typical areas to check are to look under the rear of the car at the inside of the rims for fresh fluid, If one of the rims are wet then you will have a Wheel Cylinder problem.
One trick you can use to check for leaks is to make sure the brake master cylinder is full of Brake Fluid then have someone pump the brake pedal while you look for signs of a leak. Good Luck. Twitter, SwiftAuto If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

I had a 2003 Camry and discovered this by rear-ending. I confronted Toyota and they inspected the car at the auto body (repair) shop. their conclusion was everything was OK!?! After pursuing this I managed to get a photo copy of Toyota's explanation of why this is 'NORMAL'. Something about a compound brake linkage. They would not let me keep the copy, though.
Search the NTSA website and you will find a plethora of simular complaints.
I sold the car for this very reason. Had I not paid cash for it I would have lemon-lawed it!!! Guess in retrospect I still could have...
Good luck and stay safe!!!

You will need to bleed the brake fluid again starting at the furthest wheel cylinder working your way up to the closest to the master cylinder. This way you will remove all air from the lines. Do the master cylinder last. The ABS must be done as well before the master cylinder

Assumeing you have no big leaks in the new brake lines witch you would see because there would brake fluid all over the ground I would say you didn;t bench bleed the new master cylinder There is air in this part when you buy it and you need to get it out before it will work Heres how you do it first you need a kit it consests of plugs that you screw into the holes that the brake lines go into but they have fittings for hoses to plug on to them you put the master cylinder into a vice screw the plugs into the holes put the hoses on the fittings and put the other end of the little hoses into the cylinder resivior fill the resiviors with brake fluid then take some kind of a tool i like to use a 6 inch 3/8 ths socket extentoin because not sharp but you could use a screw driver And push the piotion in from the back of the unit repeataly until you see now more air bubbles coming out of the two little hoses that are in the resiviors like ten or so pushes Then reinstall hook up the lines and bleed at wheel cylinders with wheel cylinder bleeding always start at the fertist wheel and work your way back to the closetes wheel Its not as hard as it may sound good luck
