I only experienced that problem once in all the repairs I've performed. It was the wrong master cylinder replacement. I literately had to get out of the car and release brake pressure by bleeding off the pressure. I only got back by using the emergency brake to stop because using the pedal was only good for a few stops before I had to bleed the pressure
