What happens when air gets in the braking system?

Air stuck in the brake lines cause the peddle to feel "spongy". Your braking distance will dramatically increase with air in the system. When you apply the brakes in a vehicle that has no air in the system, that pressure added with the pressure from the master cylinder presses the brake pads against the rotor or drum causing you to stop. When there is air in the brake system and you apply the brakes some of that pressure is used up by compressing the air in the system and the rest is trying to stop the vehicle.
