I have a 2001 chevy tracker lt 4wd 2.5v6---when you press on the brake pedal to stop the brakes almost go to the floor they also feel a little spongy.I've had the brakes bled does no good 1 mech. Said the master cyclinder is bad another said the brake booster is bad can you shed some light on this?

Usually with a bad brake booster you get a hard pedal not a soft pedal. So do you have drum or disc brake in the rear?

Alright if you had drum brakes I was going to tell you I would try adjusting up out of adjustment drum brakes can cause a low brake pedal. Can you pump the brake pedal up and make it hard?Do you have abs?Did you or a shop bleed the brakes?

Sorry I have drum brakes also I have ABS. When you pump the brakes you do get a better pedal.I have had the brakes bled twice they also looked for any leaks and didn't find any.
