1996 toyota camry having problems with brake system?

Answer:

sounds like they didn't bleed the system while they refilled it.I'd go back and tell them to do it correctly.(air in the lines.)
Hello, it is purely a brake bleeding problem.As per your version the air is trapped in the brake lines which gives you a spongy effect while braking. A simple way to cross check your brakes without even getting down from your seat is just start the engine and press the brake pedal hard.It will stop in one position and it should stay there if there is no leak in the master cylinder or any other place. It the pedal slowly moves downthen there is a leak. Properly bleed your brake system. The brake fluid has the capacity to absorb moisture and if it absorbs it will corrode the lines.I will strongly recommend to change the brake fuid once in two years and also use the recommended ones may be DOT3 brake fluid in your case.While refilling with new fluid always use a new one dont use the fluid from a opened container and dont frequently open the brake fluid reserviour as it may absorb moisturethat is why all the brake fluid reserviour are translucent to check the level of the fluid without opening the lid Give prime importance to this brake issue and drive safe.
The brakes need bleeding. There's air in the lines. If this doesn't help, then the master cylinder needs to be replaced. To prevent needing new wheel cylinders in the future, change the brake fluid. This is just like engine oil and when it gets contaminated with water, it eats up the seals.
