No brakes

Today while driving I would push down on the brake pedal have brakes for a second then the pedal would hit the floor. Eventually the pedal would go all the way to the floor and I would have to push as hard as i could to get the truck to coast to a stop. The brakes would also take a second to disengage and the pedal was slow to come up. All levels are good with no leaks. Can anyone point me in a direction of what may be wrong with the truck

Break booster might be bad.

You could have a pin hole in one of the brake lines.

My vote is also on the brake booster. You noted that your fluid levels are good and steady so that would, to me, eliminate a leak in a line or at the calipers.

If he had whole anywhere in the system he would be losing fluid.

How do I tell if the hydroboost or the master cylinder is shot.
