FL wheel hot and RR wheel warm from braking. I could spin the RL wheel with the brake pedal to the floor. Luckily I read your post and tried to bleed the master cylinder. I put the plugs in that came with it and pumped the brakes. The pedal never firmed up and never changed. I have a replacement master cylinder coming tomorrow.

I am thinking that when the mc faile some fluid may have overflowed out the cap...creating the smell....brake fluid on hot motor/exhaust.

I will post tomorrow after replacing mc and bleeding all again. I might call this car rerun since I have to fix everything at least twice.

In reading up on the master cylinder I read a little about the proportioning valve. I guess that is why I have the lights on the dash. Is there a special procedure after installing the new bench bled master cylinder to assure the valve allows fluid to go to both systems? If I understand correctly it will block off one of the two systems if there is a bad leak. I am not sure why mine is lighting but I want to make sure I get this right so I don't have to do it a third time (like the starter).

NAJ has really helped outNAJ has really helped out
Way back in the day there were some vehicles that the proportioning valve needed to be centered or the brake light would stay on, this is not true on our vehicles.

Bleed the master cylinder, gravity bleed the 4 wheels then proceed to bleeding normally pumping the pedal.
