Brake master cylinder?

Ok when I press my brakes hard the brake pedal will go to the floor, feels like jelly, but when I tap on the brakes its fine. Im thinking this might be the master cylinder?? or could it be that I need to bleed my brakes? ( I have a leaking rear caliper)

sounds like the rings in the master cylinder are gone..i.e. letting the fluid pass without it applying the force to the rings which causes the car to stop...

i dont think u will see any leak from this...but i could be the way a new master cylinder is about $800 for our cars imported from japan hehe
yeah they are expensive to fix ... but with somethin as important as brakes...i would take it to a brake specialist..

thats what i did...and the problem ended up being nothing more than some air in the he bled it for me and refilled
= $50

goodluck mate :)
