    My minivan feels like it is braking on its own when I initially accelerate after I start it and put it in drive.
    It hasn't done it from stop after initial acceleration. My abs light is on. It's as if it's stopping on its own or the brakes are locking up and it only does it for a short distance and then it's gone.

      Faulty brake master cylinder, or faulty power brake booster. Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the brake master cylinder from $32.00 (without reservoir), and the power booster from around $103.00 for your vehicle.

      These parts are easily replaced - use the 'How-To-Guides'feature on the AutoMD website for details.

      The brake booster helps when braking so the pedal isn't so hard to push and does a better job stopping . It is run off vaccum from the motor . Check for vaccum leaks . Or maybe a bad booster .

    Replaced master cylinder & both front calipers & brakes! Pedal still feels spongy
    I adjusted the rear brakes also the adjusters are fine move freely! Fluid in master cylinder doesn't go down! I bleed the front brakes and replaced the fluid! The brake pedal seems fine while car is off but once you start it the pedal seems to go away

      There is still air in the system.Bleed in sequence. Better to use a pressure or vacuum bleeder equipment.

      First question - what is the brake master cylinder fluid level? Does the fluid level go down without evidence for any external leakage? If yes, the fluid is likely escaping internally past the master cylinder piston and plunger (worn / faulty brake master cylinder).

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities. In fact, they (RockAuto) list the master cylinder from around $11.50 (remanufactured) for your vehicle.

      The master cylinder is easily and inexpensively replaced - check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to replace and bench bleed the brake master cylinder.

    Brakes loose vaccum! Some times when stopping need to pump the brakes to keep pedal firm! What should I check first?
    Don't see any brake fluid leaking!
