I have a 1986 escort 1.9 liter; when you bleed the brakes (engine off), brake pedals is fine. When you start the car, pedal goes near the floor feeling spongy. When bleeding again, I notice air back in the brake line. I bleed RF-LR, RR-RF. What could be the problem? Fluid is not down, doesn't appear to be any leaks.
