99 Accord brake problems


I have a 99 accord. My brake pedal was soft but I would stop fine and stay stopped with the pedal only about half way in but the pedal would sink a tiny bit when I was stopped. I could also push the pedal to the floor if I wanted.I took it to a honda dealer and another repair shop and both said it was my master cylinder so I had the changed. Now when I push on the pedal to slow down its much firmer and feels like it is stopping better. When I am stopped though I can still push the pedal to the floor. When the car is in park and I push the pedal it is very soft but when the car is moving the pedal is firm and I never have to push more than half way down on the pedal to stop. Does anybody know why I can push the pedal to the floor while it is stopped?

Do you
have the same problem?

You need to check closely the brake fluid and determine if it slowly going down. I suspect a small leak is a line or a slave cylinder of which you will have 4. Look around and see what is going on with the brake lines. Then as a last resort, you have been sold a defective master cylinder. I might add though that the mechanic that replaced the master may not have done a thorough job of bleeding. I would look at all of these. Good luck!
