DON'T use DOT3 BRAKE FLUID! Plan on buying a quart of DOT4 fluid and thoroughly flushing the lines and calipers. Traditionally, Castrol LMA/GT fluid was what to use, but it has become near unobtanium.

You can consider switching to real DOT5 Silicone fluid, but it is scarce too. They want to peddle this DOT4/5 stuff that is neither DOT4 nor DOT5, and I have heard no reports on it, therefore I don't want to use it. The DOT 5 conversions I have done work well, except that it is very hard to get all the water/fluid/gunk out of the calipers.

Definitely master cylinder failure symptoms. Fluid is leaking past the cups on the piston.
