Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

You could have a problem with the master cylinder. The seal will sometimes leak fluid into the brake booster, this will cause air to enter the system. If it has abs you need a scan tool to bleed the air out of the abs module.

Here is the bleeding sequence.
