Brakes problem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

the brake pedal is very soft and down to te floor. In order for it to brake I have to press it down all the way and the brakes go from hardly braking at all to locking the wheels. I replaced the master cylinder and the problem remains the same
