Got in my car and the brake pedal went to the floor got it to a garage ( I have no tools with me here where I am stationed) and told them I had a broken brake line. They told me they would check it out but it would probly be th emaster cylinder even after I showed them the leaky brake line. They fixed the brake line then told me I needed a master cylinder because they could not blead the brakes ( no peddle pressure ) is this BS I have not heard of the master cylinder going out at the same time as the brake line braking.
