1995 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 146000 miles
I recently purchased a '95 Altima gxe. When I test drove it the brakes were soft(didn't start to engage until 2 inches before the floor), but they worked. I changed the front calipers and bled them thinking that would solve the problem. In fact they got worse. Next I replaced the master cylinder and bled them again. No improvement. I tested the power-booster per manual instructions and it seems fine. So I replaced the brake hoses. No improvement. What could the problem be?
P.S.-. After the first repair the car also started stalling out every 1000 ft or so. I had also replaced the front right cv joint half shaft(no problems). I don't know if that's related.
