Q: Leaks of brake fluid

asked by on

Pedal like sponge, after hours

My car has 207000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello - it sounds like despite your efforts to bleed the system, there is still air in the lines. ABS makes this more difficult on some models, and a power bleeder may be your only solution. I would recommend having a Brake System Flush Service completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who can come to your location, and flush both the old fluid and air out of your brake system.
