2002 SC1
Default Brakes going to floor

Havenít driven my car for about 2 months due to AC compressor going up. I tried to drive it about a week ago. Since it sat for a while, I checked fluids and everything and pumped the brakes and all that. All seemed to be ok. Brakes did feel a bit spongy And so I kept pumping them here and there as I drove. But then when I came to a red light I put them on just a tad bit harder and they went to the floor. Whatís going on? Master cylinder bar? Brake fluid looks full on reservoir

...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Where you're parked, are there any oil stains on the ground from the four wheels? Did you jack up the car to inspect each brake for brake fluid leaks?

Most of the times it's lines, especially in the salt belt. When I can't find it I pump the brakes until I see the puddle.
