It could still be worn seals in your master cylinder but that wouldn't cause noisy brakes before it failed. Point is you do have a leak somewhere in your brake system.

If this mechanic doesn't tell you he found anything and indicates that the refill and bleeding should do it, it's not true and you wouldn't be out of the woods on this issue yet. It would just happen again only the sudden failure may not happen when your starting up in park.

Let us know what your mechanic said! Maybe he thinks it could be a loose bleeder valve so he made it sound simple? He can't really think refilling your brake system will prevent this from happening again.
okay thanks, will do.

here was the problem, master cyl was bad. and my front left bearings were shot. so bad to wear the guy took it off and the bearings crumbled in his hand. that would be what the squeeking was.

thanks for your guys help though. =]
