Re: brakes

I have no clue. it is a stock 89 brake system it is rwal computer it has a booster but i have no clue about brakes. if this helps when i push the pedal and look at the resivour the fluid splashes around it did this before when we were trying to bleed them it would shoot out i dont know if this is normal. i checked the code but it just stayed solid light and i dont think i have ever got a brake code from it before correctly. when the truck is off and i pump the pedal it builds pressure but it never stays solid i cant see anywhere that it is leaking. i am going to stop by a brake shop in hopes for a free estimate but any help here would be more useful. thanks sorry i have no clue about anything dealing with brakes.
