need help bad

my brakes kinda failed on me today when i was driving around developments
glad i wasnt on a main road
they fail then i pump them to bring back pressure
pressure stays for a little but the more i drive they dont work

when it is just sitting the brake pedal has all of its pressure.

can anyone help me?

Re: need help bad

The seals in the master cylinder are probably bad. just replace it. dont forget to bench bleed it. then when your dont bleed the system.

Re: need help bad

Bleed the system then. If you're not leaking any fluid then try that.
