I have a 1996 Chev Cavalier with 110,000 miles on it. The brakes up to this point have been very sharp and responsive. The front pads and rotors are only a few months old. When I left to go work this morning, brakes seemed fine and normal. Traveled on the freeway in stop and go traffic for about 50 miles, still fine and normal. As soon as I went to exit the freeway, brakes were not as responsive. I had to push the pedal much further down then normal order to get some braking power. The pedal didn't drop to the floor, I just had to push it much further then normal. Once I got to work, I looked at for leaks, didn't seem so see any. Master cylinder fluid was also at the full mark. Do I need to replace the master cylinder, maybe just a bleed? Is it safe to drive home tonight?
Thank you for any help.
have the same problem?
