I have a 2002 Nissan Quest, when I'm braking the pedal it's hard to press and I hear
inside the car like air sound coming out, the first 1 or 2 inch is hard then I can feel the
brake engaging to stop the car, but doesn't sto[ like it use to, it sort slows it down and stop,
but if press harder it stop harder and feels like you slammed the brakes..Is the the master
cylinder going or do I need to bleed the brake? The brake fluid level a little low but normal,
i filled it and it still feel the same.. Also I have changed the front brake pads myself about a
year and a half, I had no problems then and I had bled the brakes when i did it.

The cheapest and easiest thing to do is bleed the entire brake system. There are a host of you tube videos to show you gow to do this. You could also have a air leak in the booster and fulid could be leaking back into it snice you said you were low. Check for leaks on the brake lines.
