Hi all - apologies for asking for help as a newbie :$
I have owned my lovely iveco 5610 for 11 years it is now a horsebox previous life I think was a royal mail van !
I had all my brake lines and cylinders, etc replaced about 2 years ago.
I was driving it home a few days ago when a dog ran out , I had to do an emergency stop...(dog is safe) all good, however about a mile further on went to stop at T junction and pedal hit the floor :'(
I got back by creeping along and using engine braking.
If I pump the pedal it comes back to normal for about a second and then goes to the floor again..
Any thoughts to make sure I don't get ripped off at the garage or I might try and fix myself...
Is it just air , is it the cylinder etc
Thanks a million

Could be air, but if it hasn't had any work done recently and you don't have any leaks I would suspect master cylinder/servo. Just replaced my servo/master cylinder (comes as one unit on mine) wirh same symptoms.
Not a cheap fix if it is.....sorry
