Re: Overheating brakes

After changing the brake pads, the brake pedal was all spongy, goin all the way down and not braking properly(full travel to brake just slowly). The pads seemed to be properly inserted, and afterwads, i changed the fluid and bled the system , but the problem persisted. after reinstalling the previous pads, the brakes seem to be owrking fine again. Any ideas as to why this happens?

I should al;so mention that visualy at least the entire system looks fine(no leaks)
