Bought the car and after a week the brake pedal became more and more firm over about 5 miles. Finally the front brakes smoked and engine labored just to keep going. Pulled over and had the car towed to a shop close by. Mechanic replaced front pads, rotors, and calipers. He couldn't get the air from the system so he replaced the master cylinder, rear brakes and wheel cylinders. Got the car back and there was lots of travel in the brake pedal, lots of travel almost to the floor to stop the car. I adjusted the rod from the brake pedal to the maser cylinder to 2 inches of travel in the pedal. Felt fine until I test drove the car. Pedal became more firm until all travel was gone and front brakes seized again. Any help would be appreciated. Car does have ABS but there are no lights on to indicate a code needs to be pulled from the computer. Thanks again.
have the same problem?
