Need more info I think. Things like when they stopped working, was it gradual or out of the blue, if you are losing break fluid, could you have a leak at one of the wheels, how the pads look, etc... My daughter's car had a bad caliper that caused the same problems.

Try bleeding it backwards ie from the caliper up into the reservoir. If the pedal goes to the floor it has air in it or a bad master cylinder, which you've changed. Did this all start after changing the calipers?

I don't think Cactus knows. He is a drunk, not a vampire.

if you are able to build up pressure its not your master cylindar.you should start at the back brakes first and then the front.i assume you have a helper when bleeding the lines
