    I was wondering what's wrong with my brake...its like when i press on my brake it dont really want to stop...you gotta like floor it to make it stop...i was wondering if you bleed the brake...will it be better...cuz i thought it might have some air in the brake fluid.

    Does the pedal feel spongy?

    Does the brake pedal vibrate when braking?

    Check the pads first, then bleed away. In this order to make it completely effective RR, LR, FR, FL

    Have you done any work lately to your brakes, or allowed your reservoir to go empty? If not I would probably say its your pads, at least you should hope so.
