Have a soft pedal that goes to the floor when I step on it. I have to press it several times to get braking power. I am not losing fluid and there is no booster. It seems to be worse in stop and go traffic. Ideas?

master cylinder leaking past seals, or air in system. That's all I can think of.

I am leaning in that direction also. Found some fluid leaking down the inside of the firewall.

it might have metric fittings so you might have to change your fittings out on your lines the power booster will sure feel better
