so i bled and serviced my power steering cause it was whining. it helped but now my brakes are acting kinda funny. if i step on the brakes slowly it doesnt do it. but if i do it fast my pedal jerks a little and there is a delayed reaction to the brake. did i somehow get air in the brake system? what could it be and how do i fix it? ideas?:help

No worries...I had the same issue.
Just a little air in the system. It will go away in a day or two.

With that pedal feel appearing after all the foot action with the PS/HB flush, I would suggest to also flush your Brake fluid...how old is it?

Yearly is good, never more than 2 yrs...you may be overdue, I'll bet the Master is full of black/green fluid.
