You have brake fluid leaking past a seal in the system. If it was spongy at first, that'd be air; sounds like you got that all out. Are you losing fliud anywhere? Check all 4 corners. If not there, then I'd suspect (strongly) the master cylinder. > (When the car is turned off the brake pedal is full and solid with > no movement. The only difference between "on" and "off" is that there's vacuum at the power brakes servo, but I'm at a loss to explain why it would change your leak. Anyone? I've got 50 (checks headers) dollars on it being your master cylinder. Any takers? Dave Hinz
