why are the brakes pushing to the floor to stop?

Asked by Jul 15, 2013 at 08:31 PM about the 2007 Mercury Milan

Question type: General

I have checked the brake fluid, which is fine. I pulled the front wheels and inspected the bakes pads. The brake pads are 1/4 inch. i could see no leaks.

Sounds dangerous- be careful- could be a fluid leak- look under the car at the insides of the wheels- back wheels too- are they wet? look around the master cylinder- just guessin', but if there's no fluid leak, sounds like a bad master cylinder- take it to a mechanic- towing would be safer- do you have AAA? let them fix it WITHOUT guessin'

Agreed. Your Master Cylinder has probably blown a seal internally. Don't drive it.
