Do the early 240s mine is a 89 with 150k tend to have a soft brake pedal or is that a sign that my rubber lines are getting soft. cause my car stops fine just has a less then comforting pedal it seems like you push on it and it never firms up however the car stops. I had a chrysler that had the same issue but it was the norm for that line of cars. Any feedback is appreciated.

I've never really noticed my brake pedal being soft so the question is... is it always soft or when you step on it does it gradually get softer? cause if it gradually gets softer your master cylinder is probably goin'.

There may be air in the hydraulic system. Bleed all the lines to see if that helps.

do a complete system (fluid changeout) bleed and see if it improves. If the fluid has boiled at any stage or absorbed too much water its gonna feel spongy
bingo. motul brake fluid is really good if not the best. if the flush doesnt work, it may be a good exceuse to get SS lines. :)
