First thing to look at is the brake fluid, is it brake fluid? If oil or tranny fluid was added to brake fluid reservoir, the rubber inside the cap will swell, and not fit. Remove a small amount of the fluid, swirl it in a cup of water, any white oily beads floating in it? If yes, fluid may be contaminated. Next and the easiest, check rear brakes, could be low, or out of adjustment, either condition will give you these symtoms, if your parking brake works, push it down a few clicks, does the pedal improve? If yes, rear brakes need a look! Last, check the master for a swirling action when the brak is pressed and released, if no swirl, the compensating port is clogged.
