umm, i think thats what you call..."a bad thing". Check the fluid level. Add DOT 3 fluid if neccisary. Also, if the fluid is excessively dark or does not look clean, you might want to think about bleeding your brakes...Check techinfo at the top of the page for instructions, or if you are moneybags, you can have a mechanic do it. If your fluid is low, check the master cylinder for any leaks around the fittings and such and if nothing can be found, make sure to check your calipers and drums for any sign of leakage, as this could be the reason you have to press hard, pressure loss. My wheel cylinders are leaking and I will be rebuilding them this week, my car has some if any rear brake action because the seals on my wheel cylinders are worn out. You can check these by removing the wheels and just pulling the drums off. They come off pretty easily on my car, hopefully you will have the same result.
EDIT: Oh, and, just a friendly reminder, make sure to add your year and model to your sig. And a pic would'nt hurt. If you can provide the pic, I am sure some photochopper here will fix yah up with a sig
