Got 130kmi and it appears that my brake master cylinder is going out. When sitting at a red light and holding the brakes the pedal fades and I begin to roll. I can pump it back up and the pedal is hard again for a little bit. Also when coming to a quick or hard stop, the pedal fades. I am going to bleed it tonight just make sure that there is no air causing this, but I am afraid that it is the master cylinder. Opinions or ideas are more than welcome.

Thanks.
Donnie

I would bleed and check all of your lines to make sure there is no damage to the system. And then if it still is soft I guess I would change the master out. I had brake problems for a while and I couldn't really figure it out, so I just finally replaced the cylinder, after 95K, and all has worked well since. Easy job and it's cheep with the core charge. Good luck. Maybe take a look at the calipers as well for any signs of extreme wear around the dust boots.

Check to make sure there is no leak in the brake booster line.

Thanks for the info. Does anyone have a diagram of the brake system that will help to identify all of the parts? I am fairly mechanically inclined, but new to brakes.

The first car I owned did that at first and then it got to the point where I had no pedal at all and it was the M/C.
