1991 Mazda B2200 2.2L mileage: 180,000. When I apply the brakes the pedal goes almost to the floor before the brakes engage, (when this fist started if I pumped the brakes it helped but that doesn’t work as well anymore), and they seem softer when they engage. If I push harder with my foot it gets a little better, but not as good as normal. I checked the fluid and it is fine. My friend suggested the master cylinder, what do you think? Great site by the way!

You may have problems with the brakes themselves. Remove all four wheels and inspect the brakes paying close attention to the rear brakes and the self-adjusters. Also, inspect the wheel cylinders for leaking break fluid. If everything is in order, try bleeding the brakes. If the master cylinder is faulty, it could be the cause of your problem as your friend suggested. However, check the other thinks we suggested first.
