Had a lil problem with my brakes recently. I THINK that steering fluid got into my brake reservoir when I asked my wife to top it off. I noticed a problem because every other brake press had no pressure. Pressing again I had 100%, again, none. I found that my master cylinder gasket got 3 sizes to big so I changed it. Problem got worse. Feared air in the lines so I. Bled brakes, bled em again, disconnected brake lines and bled master cylinder (tested vacuum in it with my thumbs while doing this, no problems at all), bled brakes after that they got a lil better, again, a lil better. Twice more I bled in rotation, pass. Rear, driver rear, pass front, driver front. Now I get great pressure, but if I let off just a tad and rebrake, it sinks to the floor. No loss of pressure if I hold it no matter how long I do, and I'm running out of ideas. Like I said, I bled and tested the master cylinder itself and it's not the problem, I'm just trying to find out what is.
