Q: Brakes don't work good in my 1996 Honda Accord

asked by on

I have 96 Honda accord, the brake must be pumped in order to work seems to be worse on hotter days but I'm not 100% sure on that, also the brake fluid doesn't seem to be leaking as their are no puddles under the car and the fluid in the master cylinder is dropping faster than normal. I have had it checked out by a mechanic before and they bled the brakes so there shouldn't be in air in it unless air has gotten in it since then. They saif the problem is most likely with either the master cylinder or the antilock brake system. Although I dont really trust their competence, so what do you think?
My car has a manual transmission.
