Check the brake lines. On one of my Impala's I had a similar problem and it turned out to be a pin-hole in one where it's coiled under the master cylinder. It only leaked (squirted out) when I pressed the brake pedal. Hope this helps.

still cant find any brake line leaks,I guess sooner or later I will figure it out.

I would check the proportioning valve. Its located way under the frame on the drivers side front quarter panel. You may have to jack her up to find it. The prop valve is where the six brake lines connect and distribute the fluid. Most of the brake like on the vette will be attached to the frame.

I did not think of inspecting the proportioning valve,but soon as I do I'll let you know how it goes,thanks.
