Brakes problem
1998 Acura Integra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

I bled my brakes and refilled the reservoir and did it all by the book. After that my brakes didn't work well at all. My pedal would go all the way to the ground, so I replaced the brake master cylinder with a brand new one and now I have no brakes whatsoever. Do I have to bleed the brakes all over again before I fill the sysem backup? I am totally stumped!

Every time brake system is interrupted (in your case, master cylinder replacement), you need to bleed the brake system. Even though you have bled, the system, that was before the replacement of M/C. Bleed the system again.
