Master cylinder is internaly leaking. If the booster goes out you lose power assist. It's only doing it started I'm assuming because with the power assist you now have enough force to overcome the seals. If the rear of the master cylinder is leaking into the booster then it is nessesary to replace both

I'm betting on the master cylinder, I think there is air in it for whatever reason. I will report back after replacing it. I doubt it is the booster.

repjlaced master cylinder and the problem remains. I may start looking at the ABS system for answers
