Ok, I've had my car for 3 weeks, when I got it the brakes were a little spongy and I figured it might be an ailing MC. But, I've had the car for over 1,000 miles already and it is fine ( probably stupid for not getting it checked), but the brakes stop fine, there is just more travel in the pedal than normal. I live in a city that doesn't have hills, it is a hill, and the brakes still work fine, I never feel nervous about em stopping. They haven't gotten worse and work like any other car, could it be something else? The lines have been bled once and it made it a touch better, but I didn't totally replace the fluid. The car has 153,000 and the MC looks original (corroded), what do you think? Should I replace the MC or try something else. Oh yeah the pads just started to squeel so they do need replacing.l

At a stop, does the brake pedal slowly sink all the way to the floor? If so, the MC is bad. I am on my third MC with only 107k miles.
I had those symptons and i just changed my MC at about 125,000 w/ a remanufactured MC from autozone- Real easy to change w/ my brother, and I haven't had a problems yet (about 3 weeks) knock on wood !!!!

No it doesn't move once the car is stopped. Everything about it seems fine other than there is more travel to begin braking than most cars I've driven. Although on the highway it seems there is a little less travel. Never does the pedal hit the floor, or sink any farther on a stop, even when I'm pointing down hill.

I would change the pads and play it by ear.


Good luck
