brake failure

Hi my niece has a 2005 tj, she lost her brakes< there was no fluid in the resevoir but, there was none on the ground and no wet spots in all the usual places, I put fluid in it, pumped them up, had a good peddle then started the jeep and they went to the floor with no loss of fluid, so, I replaced the master cylinder with a new one and it still does the same thing, does anyone have a suggestion , we both thank you....Al

Your probably gonna need to bleed the brakes. If you have someone to help you it's alot easier to do. Not much to it really.

I just hate when people just replace stuff without knowing how to do the proper work.

Assuming he did bleed the brakes, is it possible that the diaphragm in the brake booster is shot and the fluid is syphoning into the I take via the vacuum tubes?
