Hello, I recently had my friend change out my brake line hose in my car but now when driving it the brake pedal feels really loose and goes all the way to the floor when I push down so I have to pump it a couple times. Sometimes it will stop but mostly it just barely slows down even when I am pushing down as far as I can it slowly keeps going and I have to pull the e-brake up. I always check my brake fluid and it is always good. I also heard that he accidentally put transmission fluid instead of brake fluid but I am not for sure if that is the case. It just feels really easy to push with no pressure but hard to stop. Also, the plastic black thing that goes in the cap to seal it to the brake fluid area is broken and I feel like it is not closing well enough. He has also slammed on the brakes several times out of anger putting wear and tear on the peddle.
Could it be possible that he did put the wrong fluid and it caused a tiny leak or air in the hose or does it sound more like a problem with the master cylinder from him not putting the hose on right and being hard on the peddle to cause it to not have the pressure it needs to stop the car?
have the same problem?
