    here is my story...

    i was driving the other day and all of a sudden my brake pedal went soft. so i decide to pull over to a gas station and checked if i had any brake fluid in the reservoir...it was empty!!! i then i fill it up to the max level...and still my brakes were spongy. when i get home...i check the reservoir...it was till full. so i figured i needed to bleed my brake system and so i did. STILL SPONGY!!! what seems to be the problem? should i change my brake master kit? or could it just be my brake lines? thanks in advance...

    hindi ba parang may mas malalang problem sir ang brakes mu. the brake fluid canister can't go empty without a major problem. in the gasoline station, did you just top up your brake fluid or did you check for problems?

    yes i just filled it up and never checked for problems...i figured it was just empty...cause it happened to me before. BTW, when i brake, my car veers to the right...its seems so that the brake on the left is not working...also, when i bled my brakes...the left brake had alot of air in it...

    There is air in your brake lines.

    You will need to have to bleed all the air out of your entire brake system before the spongy feeling disappears.

    a/t ba yan sir or m/t? if m/t, isa lang ba ang fluid canister niyan for brake and clutch? if isa lang, might as well bleed the clutch
