Is there fluid loss from the front part of the system? Check the brake hoses carefully. Also make sure that you have bled all the air out of the front. Sometimes air gets trapped in the calipers, and it can take some effort to get all of it out.

Have you tried to bleed the brakes,it sounds like you have air in the system. I would try bleeding the brakes first ,start with the wheel farthest from the master cyl. The right rear,left rear,right front left front. If that does'nt help check the master cyl and brake booster.

your probably going to have to bleed the entire system.1st try & bleed the master cyl.
basicly the same as you would bleed the front/rear brakes. pump pedal & hold while someone
loosen the brake line on the master cyl. after m/c is bleed move to r/r,l/r,r/f,l/f wheels in
that order. if you have abs brakes & you got air in the pump a scan tool may be needed
to bleed properly.

Sounds like you have air in the system, or maybe a defective master cyl.did you bench bleed the master cyl. before you installed it? You will have to bleed the system of air starting with the RR, LR, RF, LF, If you don't get peddel after that than most likely its a defective master cyl.

Brakes problem

This means that you either still have a leak, or there is still air in the line. Be sure that you bleed a lot for a master cylinder change out. Also if the bench bleed was not preformed then there will be a tremendous amount of air in the system. A bench bleed is simply filling the master cylinder and priming it before you install it. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Brake pedle goes to the floor i have change out the rotor, shoes, calp, master brake cyl purge the sytem of air and still goes down

ok , how did you purge the system? if you used a power bleaded that hooks on the top of the master cyl. you put 15 lbs of air in the it up and let it run out the right rear wheel cyl with a hose from the bleader to a soda bot or glass jar with a lid and small hole to kinda hold the small vac hose in place. then when you get all the air out the right rear go to the left rear and the right front and at last the left front. be sure the back brakes are adjusted to where you can hear it rub and feel it drag or you will never get a pedal. i have 17 years asa exp at goodyear tire co... rate me if i help anyone here im going to move on if im not helping anyone here.
