I replaced my 2 rear wheel cylinders and I replaced my left front caliper because the bleeder screw broke. I bleed the brakes and everything was nice and tight. Now when I start the car the pedal goes to the floor. I called advanced and autozone and they said I have air in the lines or I have a leak. I checked for leaks nothing. I called napa and he said it is either the master cylinder the brake booster or the abs pump. With the car off when I pump the brakes it goes to the floor and does not build up pressure. Any suggestions. Thanks.

I found out that the brake fluid cap the little rubber piece under the cap fell into it. I washed the inside of the master cylinder out. Is it still safe to use once the water dries up on the inside. Thanks
