177,000 miles, 6 cyl, full size bronco. I just bought this a month ago and drove it minimally. Brakes just started going to the floor and not stopping me. If I pump them they will build pressure back up and start slowing me down. Then they will loose pressure and go back to the floor again. One time while doing this the brakes and/or tires locked up. According to my fiance (who's been the one driving it) there doesnt appear to be any fluid leaking from the lines or wheel wells. And he said the pads or whatever is in there look o.K. He is not by any means a mechanic however he is good at repairing things if people tell him what to do. I havent replaced anything yet. I was going to start with the master cylinder, But the guy at Auto Zone said that with the brakes locking up as they did that one time he was concerned that it was something else and said to look for leaks. I dont have the money to trial and error the problem or I would just take it to a mechanic. I had a chevy once upon a time that did something like that and was told it was a brake/vacuum booster. Some guy also said that it could be the boot? I will donate a dollar, I WILL donate MORE when I know that someone out there will try to help me. Thank You Cindy
