What would cause the brake pedal to be hard and not go to the floor and still engage the brakes?
You could have a clogged brake line, most likely one of the front rubber ones.
The Brake booster might not be working correctly. Run the engine for a few moments, then turn the key off. Once the engine dies, press the brake pedal a few times. You should hear a hissing noise each time you press the pedal. Then hold the pedal down and start the engine. The pedal should move and get softer. If none of this occurs, verify that the booster has a vacuum source. If the booster has a vacuum source, and still does not boost the pedal effort, the booster is more than likely bad. One other alternative would be a bad check valve. Simply remove the valve and blow into it. It should blow easily in one direction, and not at all in the other.

After changing the brakes the first few times you press on the brake pedal it will go to the floor; that's because the calipers haven't been pushed back to position.

First, make sure the master cylinder is filled with brake fluid. If it is low, there may be a leak somewhere in the brake lines or a brake cylinder. If the master cylinder is bad, you can normally pump the brakes up, but the pedal will slowly sink to the floor again. The master cylinder needs to be replaced or repaired.

2000 Plymouth Breeze Brakes you bled them bled them They still go to the floor and hardly is any brakes What is wrong with it you are stumped with the brake system?
The brake pedal will go to the floor but will have absolutely no effect on stopping the vehicle. When you push on the brake pedal it moves the fluid through metal tubes (called brake lines) to force the brake pads against the rotor which slows and stops the car. No fluid means nothing is in there to make the brake pads engage the rotors.
you either have a bad master cylinder or you need to replace your brake pads if you hear a lot of squealing when you push down on the brake peddle in most cases that means you need to replace them unless you did recently then in most cases I would recommend bleeding the brakes there could be some air bubbles that are preventing proper pressure in your brake lines

But then, sometimes power brakes do that when they're working properly. It could be from either a hole in the diaphragm of the brake booster or normal operation. If the sound is new, and was not there before, and your brake pedal is going to the floor…
They do. Every time you back up and step on the brake, it activates the self adjuster. It has it's limitations. If you don't know how to manually adjust your drum brakes, have your mechanic do it for you. If you feel your brake pedal is mushy or you have to push it almost to the floor, it may mean your rear drums need adjusting.
