94 s500 coupe brakes

when i start the car, my brakes are very soft and go almost to the floor, then as the car warms up and i drive the brakes come back up to normal position, they still work at the softest stage but it seems wrong. any suggestions?

RE: 94 s500 coupe brakes

not a total expert on this topic, but i can tell you that this car uses a hydraulic brake booster set-up instead of a vacuum assisted system, sounds as if though pressure is bleeding out and it needs to regain it after start-up, but you would think with a loss of assist pressure the pedal would be harder at first???
