I've noticed something different about my brakes. When I'm going to stop I press the pedal in and it goes real far utill i can feel it stopping but if I pump it right after that while i'm stopping I can feel it pull at a pretty short distance, the same thing every time I stop. could that be a problem with my master cylinder, and if so would there be any leaking?? I cant see any at the master cylinder or any of the wheels. Thank's
for the help

------------could be air trapped in the lines---bleeding the brakes would correct this

-----------Some Sears auto centers give free brake inspections, they will take all the wheels off and check the calipers and wheel cylinders for leaking. If there isn't any, it means your master cylinder is bad and needs replaced or repaired.
