Default Spongy Brakes

The brakes on my 92 Integra go very spongy after having been driven for
about an hour. The brake pedal travel is fine at first, but then the
travel goes right down to the floor of the car. It has been extremely
hot here (34 degrees Celcius) and it may be a temperature related
problem though I doubt it. I'm not leaking brake fluid either. Any
have the same problem? Is it the master brake cylinder? The brake
fluid was changed 2 years ago. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rick Shaw

Seems like I had the same/similiar problem with my
'91 Ingegra and a friend had it on a '91 Accord.
As I remember, Honda warrantied the Accord and
replaced the master cylinder for the cost of the
labor, but on mine I had to buy a new master
cylinder AND pay to have it put on.

FWIW, both of our problems happened in the
Summer....in Texas. VERY hot.

Sounds like a failing master cylinder.
