    There might be a bubble stuck in the lines.

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...
    I think you have a leak in one of your brake lines.

    If the problem keeps coming back even though you've bled the system time and time again, you should probably have your brake lines looked at. Unless you take care of the leak, air will keep getting into your brake fluid and you will still get spongy pedal feel.

    Check your underchassis for areas where paint has been stripped or melted clean off. That's where your leak probably is.

    i thought of that as well...i checked under the car for leaks but i found nothing...maybe i can just bring it to a shop...how much do you think they will charge for a fix if a leaky line is the problem?

    try checking the contct between the master ccylinder and the brake booster. the m/c might need to be reconditioned. there might be an internal leak too between the primary piston and the secondary pisto.
    is your brake system diagonal split or front/rear split? is it anti lock brake system?

    nung pinacheck ko ung brakes several years ago, i found out that only one side was working. It seemed that only one of the rubber thingies inside the cylinder was getting pushed forward when i stepped on the brakes, ung isa naiiwan.

    Apparently We ended up having the master cylinder replaced and a new repair kit installed. We also found a leak in one of the rear tires(forgot what that thingy attached to the drum brakes was called)

    I'm assuming it's diagonally split as it's a Honda.

    Di ba ang mga oto may dalawang diagonal connection naman ang brake circuit so that if 1 circuit fails may naiiwan pang isa.
