I have a 98 lexus ls 400. Brakes stoped grabing firm then the pedel would go to the floor. Replaced the master cylinder but did not bench bleed it. I am getting clean fluid with no air to all corners by starting car pushing pedel to floor and opening bleeder New fluid, coming out clean. No noises, Did not bench bleed master cylinder before install but after bleeding there is no sign of air at wheel bleed points. Pedel is firm but you need lots of pressure to stop. No warning lights

Rebleed the brakes and check the brake booster if okay-double check the master cylinder for internal leakage-
