This needs to be inspected in person, the brakes are a very important safety issue. Sometimes when you work on the Brakes and the Master Cylinder is the original, just working on it pushes it over the edge, I have seen this problem in person. here is a link to a site with repair manual info for your vehicle, there is a small fee but it is well worth it. http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
