Brake issues with my 2000 chevy blazer?
So I have a 2000 chevy blazer, 2wd with a 6 cylinder that i just replaced the brake pads on. However, I've repeatedly tried bleeding the brakes but everytime I turn the car on the pedal goes straight to the floor. My dad said it might have to replace the master cylinder but that was over a phone conversation and he actually looked at the problem so I was hoping for any other advice for my problem?

If you had a good brake pedal before you started replacing the pads, I suspect you installled something wrong or still have alot of air in the brake lines.Normally when you change the pads you never have to bleed the brake system. Only when you open up the brake line system do you ever need to bleed them.Maybe you are bleeding the brake system incorrectly,too.
Idk if this will help, nor should i be responsible for your actions. lol, but when i changed the pads on my car i didn't bleed them, and the petal went straight to the floor the first time i drove it. but after a few min of driving my car around the block the petal slowly went back to normal. Driving just involved alot of stopping. I would try to drive it around ur neighborhood slowly so u could still use your E brake just in case this doesn't work. But if this didn't work, then more than likely your dad is right. Hope i could be of some help. Be careful if u try this.
Sounds like the master cylinder.
