Brakes problem
1997 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Ok, my camry developed a spongy brake pedal, but you could tap the pedal and have plenty of pedal a friend of mine said it must be the master cylinder bypassing internally it made since because the fluid was kind of blackish I thought one of the o-rings had a bad edge so I purchase m/c bring home and bleed it take the old one off install new one and proceed to bleed the entire system, started at right rear it bled fine, went to the left rear and it bled but very slow got no air out of it so went to the pass. Front and it bled fine go to the drivers front and break the bleeder screw off in the caliper, wife goes and purchases a new one put it on and now cant get any fluid out of it or the line feeding it. I feel the pedal in the car and it will build pressure for about 2 seconds then goes to the floor. The car has bosch abs no trac control discs in front drums in rear, any help thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I think you have a problem with your proportioning valve. Do this test.
