I was told about a possible shut off feature on my 96 villager for brakes so the fluid is stopped from leaking now unsure of what to look for wondering if there might be an image for this or if anyone can...

Many cars used a duel master cylinder system where there are 2 pistons in the master cylinder body. the systems are arranged so that there is brakes on 1 front wheel and a diagonal opposite rear wheel so if there is a loss of fluid from say a broken brake hose then only 1 set of wheels would be affected
If you look at the master cylinder you will see 2 pipes . These go down to a adaptor block and off to the relevent wheel sets.

After bleeding the brakes on my 84 mustang I noticed that one of the bleeder screws was not tight and fluid spilled out on the driveway. I tightened the screw and re-bleed the brakes but, the peddle goes...

Yes and No...Replacing the master cylinder is a good idea, however, giving the vehicle that much pressure with old lines attached may blow out the old rusted lines. If you are going to replace the master cylinder, you may just want to replace the brake lines as well.

I dont know were the clutch cable ajustment is.

There is no clutch cable. The single, dry disc type clutch uses a hydraulically operated master cylinder and a release cylinder mounted on the clutch housing. The clutch release cylinder is not adjustable. Clearance is automatically compensated for by internal design of the cylinder.

If your clutch is not releasing properly, the most likely cause is a worn out clutch disc, which will require more travel to disengage than the hydraulic system is designed to provide. It is either this, or your master and/or slave cylinders need replacement.

Tried to bleed brakes after replacing caliper-no brake fluid will flow out- is the master cylinder the problem?

Well, if you change a caliper or a brake line the fluid in the master cylinder should remain, even if the fluid leaks out.

However, if you are having trouble bleeding regularly, then use a vacuum pump with a 'can' or use a pressure bleeder (I prefer this method) that costs about $55 or so available on the Internet.

If you use a pressure bleeder, you'll need an extra master cylinder cap that has a hole drilled in it to accomodate the fittings of the pressure bleeder.

I know someone who had a Lincoln Continental that changed a brake line and had trouble bleeding it, and they used a vacuum pump and it bled easily using that method.

Some cars require that when you change the master cylinder, a brake scan tool is required to bleed the master cylinder that has air in it. But, if you did not replace the master cylinder, you should be able to use either the vacuum or pressure method to bleed the brakes easily.

Good luck on this repair.

1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra, brakes went to the floor with no warning and the Brake light came on-previous day there was a stange smell while stopped at red light . What could the problem be?

I'd be willing to bet that a brake line has rusted through, somewhere near the brake rotors or the exhaust. The smell was probably burning brake fluid. Check the fluid level in the resevior, If it's low, top it off and with the car off, pump the brakes and look for the puddle under the car. That should point you in the direction of the leak. Also check the wheel cylinders. This would require removing the rear wheels and brake drums. A bad master cylinder could also be the cause. If you don't have any fluid loss, i'd suspect the master.

My 1996 Espace has had 3 new master cylinders in the last 9 months also 3 new wheel cylinders.each time it worked for a while but then brakes go soft again and i mean nothing no brakes at all, so i had a...

the brake system is a duel system if you are loosing complete brake failure that points to the master cyl. but a faulty servo can damage the seals in the master cyl.if the diaphram is leaking. pull one of the old master cylinders see if the seals have been partially been turned inside/out if its the front brakes full of air sounds like the primary circuit master cyl piston/seal closest to the servo if it was me i would change that servo

Sounds like the master cylinder isn't releasing pressure after you remove your foot... Usually the calipers hang up, but you replaced them so...replace the master cylinder and bleed the brakes

Brake pedal goes soft when engin is running on 1998 chevy 1500

If your rubber brake lines are from the factory those hoses can stretch when the brakes are applied. This same thing happened to me. I replaced the master cylinder, with little to no change. So then I changed the brake booster. And if you read the fine print if either the brake booster or the master cylinder go bad it can take the other with it. So if the rubber brake lines don't fix this I would look at replacing both the master cylinder and the brake booster at the same time. But if you would like to trouble shoot this issue a bit more you can clamp off just the rear brakes or just the front brakes or even clamp off 3 of 4 or if it might be a issue before it even hits the brakes them self you can clamp off all 4 of the brakes to see were the problem is. This is to test fewer components at once and to see if the issue is with the cylinders / calipers or hoses. This will help you determine the location of the problem faster and with out throwing parts at your truck and hopping it fixes the issue.
