1998 Mustang V6: Brakes Catching Too Late
I have a '98 Mustang Coupe and I've been noticing my brakes are catching too late. Let's say hypothetically the pedal depresses 6" inches, they start to catch after 4" inches. At first I thought it was my pads, but I put them in sometime in August or September... maybe November. So, they aren't old (at all). I looked earlier and they looked in good shape from the outside.
So, I'm thinking it's my brake fluid? I checked it after I had my car off for an hour or so (if that matters) and it was showing some white thing in the shape of a cross. I'm going to go get more brake fluid now... but if that doesn't work I need some help! 'cause I don't feel safe driving with brakes that aren't catching. I had my hand on the e-brake the whole way home today.
