Brakes

I put on new front brake pads like I normally do any other car and after I put it all back together I pushed on the brake pedal and the pedal went straight to the floor and it feels as if there is air in the lines but I never opened any brake line on the car and there are no leaks anywhere and the pedal was fine before I put the new pads on. Does anyone know why the pedal went straight to the floor and will not pump up back to normal

Yes I drove it and when I push the brake pedal the nose of the car dips down but it comes right back up as the pedal goes to the floor each time I push the pedal down

Last Summer I had a master cylinder put on it and the brake pedal was nice and firm never went down very far and slowly overtime the pedal went down farther and farther to the floor so I put new brake pads on it and now the pedal goes straight to the floor

If you don't have a leak at the calibers or any where else, I would suspect the master cylinder is bad.

Try bleeding them first and see, its possible, but unlikely to get air in the system while changing pads. The symptoms you describe and the slow steady feel of softer pedal and the changing pads and now really soft sound like a bad master cylinder or a bunch of air trapped.
