Default 1997 sw1 brake mysterio???

Hello All!
PROGRESS on 1997 Saturn SW1 automatic,

HOORAY IT STARTED and is engine is running steady and sounds strong.

To recap it was sitting 3 years under shelter in mountain Rainforest, ran well when parked, then would crank but not start.

New fuel pump and now it starts. I drained and replaced oil and filter before starting also.

I also drained and replaced Transmission oil and filter.

Radiator is starting to corrode so I Am ordering a new one before it goes, meanwhile temp gauge working etc.

Then I noted the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. I checked the master cyl. and it was NOT low. SO I pumped the pedal about twenty times and checked again and the m/c was EMPTY!


Refilled the m/c in order to find any leaks, pumped pedal again and the m/c was EMPTIED faster than Rosanne Barr could inhale a large cheezy crust pizza AGAIN!

Got under car again and checked for leaks at wheel cylinders ot ANY evidence of leaking fluids and found nothing?

Dad retired as mechanic, we lived on rural farm, and did all our own vehicle and appliance servicing. I started on cars around 1971.

Never seen this..

ALL help is greatly appreciated.
