You will need to bleed the system to get the pressure back. The best way to do that is to start at the banjo fitting right at the rear master cylinder and crank the banjo bolt loose while holding pressure on the brake pedal. Only crack the bolt loose about 1/4 turn and be sure to shut it off before letting go of the brake lever to pump it again.

may i suggest your problem is the brake master cylinder is faulty ie the line pressure is being lost due to fault on seal that is supposed to maintain brake pipes/line pressure when pedal is off resulting in brake pedal intermittantly going to floor but if you pump pedal it comes back ? the fact you mention you drained master cyl ? reservoir ?? and fluid was dirty ? assume you bled all brakes to flush b/system too ? the fluid being dirty is a clear indication that the seals on m/cyl pistons are deteriated and allowing fluid to pass seals and cause pedal to travel further SO best advice is to replace the master cyl as repair kits/seals are hard to come by these days then use new fluid and bleed all brakes/cyl's hope this helps ?

hi from the uk have had this problem on a customers car b4 who had replaced frot calipers and pads and pedal went to floor on inspection of caliper i found that the steel spring clip that fits into two holes in the front face of caliper and must also locate behind the caliper carrierbehind two lugs was fitted incorrectly it had been fitted behind the outer pad resulting in when brake pedal off ?the caliper being floating type as it is known because it is fixed by two screw pins/bolts and moves on these pins/bolts as pads wear ? what happens is the spring fitted wrongly ? actually pushes against the outer pad and as a result the caliper piston is pushed back into its cylinder slightly as it moves on the locating pins/bolts resulting in pedal going to floor on 1st application but if pumped ? some brake pedal force is felt but is lost again when pedal released ? so try this ? remove the steel clips from both front calipers that retain caliper to carriers then press brake/pump pedal ? if as suggested above works? your pedal should pump up and remain ok when you release and still be firm when re applied ? all above is what i found on ford ford but many other models use similar calipers and spring locating recheck how this spring should locate hope this helps ? good luck

Unless you really know what you are doing it is best to get a mechanic to repair this. People's lives and safety are at risk and you could be held legally if something went wrong with your repair job. I would not touch it.

usually when this happen you lost fluid pressure look for a fluid leak at the clutch master cylinder under the hood ,it should be by the brake master ,it has a small plastic tank on top with a black rubber cap or underneath on the transmission there is the clutch slave cylinder it will have a small 2 inch rod that pushes the clutch fork ,look for the rubber boot on it ,see if there is fluid coming out of it ,also follow the clutch fluid lines maybe somthing has damaged one and its leaking !
