Hello. My brakes are going all way down to the floor and car will not stop but at times it will if you pump the brakes. I do not know what the problem is. Can you tell me so I could fix the problem? Also, I am sure if my car uses brake pads or drums on the rear but the front holds pads.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I am Danny,

It sounds like you are having trouble with the master cylinder. These will wear out with time due it being constantly used (brakes applied). I have attached a tutorial showing what is involved for its replacement. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
