double check that your brake fluid is full and that the bleeder screws are closed. Also, you can follow the link below and download the service manual for additional information/specifics on your brake system

sounds like its fine to me. When the engine is running the brake booster "kicks in" and theres waaay more pressure on the brakes.

When you changed the MC, did you carefully compare the length of the piston rod old-to-new? If they're not exactly the same, you have to adjust the push-rod at the brake pedal. There's a special tool for this.

If it's off, your brake booster can become a vacuum leak.

I always bleed brakes with the engine turned off. That's not it. Perhaps you didn't bench-bleed the new MC;then it just takes FOREVER to work all the bubbles out from the MC itself. It can improve byoperating the brakes for a bit & thenbleeding again.
