Brakes problem
1987 Honda Prelude 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

I've recently replaced the brake master cylinder and front calipers on this vehicle. The brake pedal went to the floor before replacing and fluid was coming from back of master. I changed the fluid and bleed all 4 calipers but the pedal still goes to the floor. Any ideas?

You have 4 calipers meaning a 4 wheel disc brake system. Does it have a ABS system?

Did you bleed the master cylinder? Before the rest

No it doesnt have abs.I opened loosened the two brake lines coming out of the master and had someone push down on thw brake and hold it while I tightened them back up.I did this about 5 times.

If its not a disc on the back open it up and inspect for leaky wheel cylinders no leak check the M/C thoroughly hydraulic pressure comes from there before the wheels.
