The brake bias valve can cause your symptom.Are the outer part of the brake calipers able to slide in and out freely .Jack it up take a wheel off and get someone to push on the brake pedal while you check for correct movement.Lube the slides so it is easier for calipers to return.a chunck of 4x2 wood is useful if you find them too hard to move by hand

SOURCE: Can i swap the Brake master cylinder over without "reprogramming"

honestly sound more like the abs unit, it is the alloy box that the brake lines go into from your master cylinder, this will cause directional braking and awkward braking and DANGEROUS braking, it is more than likely the abs junction box and no the computer will not need program, just disconnect battery for 15 mins while doing the work. hope this has been helpfull

it could be that the master cylinder is bad or the brake booster is bad also check the vacum hose going to the brake booster if it has a hole in it it will lose pressure and make the engine lose rpms

It could be either. If the leak is roughly under the firewall on the driver's side then it's likely to be the master cylinder. If it's the master cylinder, it will probably cost you $75-80 for a replacement.

Antilock light came on in my 2000 Ford Expedition. I am told it may be a fuse or fuses I need to check. I am not seeing anything on the fuse diagram which ones to check. Any thoughts?


I don't I have ever replaced an ABS fuse. Most likely you have a bad wheel sensor. Have the codes read. You will still have brakes until you get it repaired. Just not anti lock brakes. Meaning that the wheels will stop turning if you hit the brakes hard enough.

I have a 2000 ford windstar sc and just changed spark plugs put everthing back togather and noticed a small red hose disconnected one end is connected to firewall where the other end go my air vents...


beckman alan, What you have done is inadvertently disconnected the vaccum line that controls your air box for the climate control in the vehicle. Look at the brake booster next to the brake master cylinder. There is a junction for the vacuum line at that point. If not here, look at your intake manifold for any open vacuum ports, With the engine running listen for any hissing noise and track if down. This is the easiest way to find a vacuum leak. Good luck with this.

Leaking brake fluid at the clutch pedal?


You have a leaky clutch master cylinder, or a leaky brake master cylinder.

The fix to to find out which one is leaking and to replace it. The new fluid will need bleeding out at the slave cylinder, but first pull back the rubber boot on the end of the slave cylinder (assuming it's the clutch). If there is fluid there as well, the the slave cylinder must also be replaced. if it's the break master cylinder, then you'll need to check the seals on the rear wheel brake cylinders and the front wheel caliper pistons. If any leak, they must be replaced.

If you're an experienced mechanic (your question suggests not) then you may be able to dismantle, assess, and if appropriate rebuild any leaky parts using new seals/pistons. The parts are usually cheap, but the very high labour costs and higher chances of a post-repair fault mean that most garages just replace the entire assembly with new and guaranteed parts as it's far quicker, easier and less likely to come back for remedial work.

My clutch pedal one day got all loose and wouldnt get tight then i pumped it 4 five min and then it would get tight it goes back and forth between tight and loose and when loose wont go in gear and when...


Sounds like the master or slave cylinder is not right. If it gets tight when pumping it up, that's a hydraulic issue with the rubber parts not sealing, or air in the system.

Good luck on this repair.

Brakes squishy no leak


Mushy / squishy brakes are usually caused by the brake master cylinder seals failing. You can buy a rebuild kit or a re-built replacement master cylinder. I would recommend the rebuilt master cylinder as all the detail work has already been accomplished and it is not a huge expense. The key is to make sure that your use a bleeder kit to "Pre-bleed" the master kit before installation. Your making sure that the master cylinder is free of air before installation. If you instal it with air in the system it wil take you the better part of a quart of brake fluid to bleed the whole brake system via the wheel cylinders. What will happen is after you install the master cylinder the brakes would still be mushy and until you got the residual air out of all of the lines it would appear and act just like it did before you changed the master cylinder.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Can break master cylinder (kit) do as good job as a new master cylinder?


This is a Yes, and No reply.

YES,
if the mechanic insures that the bore of the brake master cylinder, is free of rust pits, and if not, uses a brake hone to smooth out the bore. Closer inspection will reveal if the pits are too deep, and the master cylinder is unusable.

YES,
if the rubber components that go into the bore of the brake master cylinder, are installed in the correct direction, all the components are assembled in the correct order, and are pre-lubed with a little bit of clean brake fluid, before installing.

NO,
if any of the above criteria is not met.

The main thing is that the Brake Master Cylinder is in good repair. In good shape. If we are discussing the original brake master cylinder, for a 1981 Ford F100 pickup truck, we are discussing a master cylinder that is 28 years old, and has seen a lot of wear.

As a metallic object, such as a brake master cylinder heats up, (Engine heat, or even just the sun shining on the vehicle), then cools down, the moisture that is always present in the air, will form in the master cylinder.

Forms in droplets, at the bottom of the master cylinder's reservoir. This moisture creates rust, when it touches the cast iron brake master cylinder casting.
The rust clogs the ports at the bottom of the reservoir, and goes down into the bore of the master cylinder.

Makes rust pits in the bore, and harms other master cylinder components, then goes into the brake lines, and onto the rest of the brake system.

Me?
For the cost of a rebuilt or new brake master cylinder, compared to the expense of the master cylinder brake kit, and your labor time, I would go with a rebuilt, or new one.

Also this is part of the Brake System, and there's no fooling around with brakes! Your life and/or someone else, Depends on those brakes!

How to change a master cylinder on 99 e250


i do agree with the haynes manual.

First off, pb blaster is your best friend for brake line bolts. You want to **** as much of the brake fluid out of the resivour as you can, Then you need to get the brake lines off the master cylinder that is on there. make sure you use the right size flare nut wrench when you are taking the lines off. rounding off brake line bolts is not fun, trust me. once the lines are off, ( turn counter clockwise) Just make sure you have a towel to put under the brake lines. for excess fluid. then with a ratchet, and extension, and socket you need to take the master off the brake booster. Also disconnect any electrical connectors and keep them clear ofthe brake fluid. When you have the 2 bolts out of the brake booster, the master should pull out and then your ready to work on installing the new one. when you get a new ,master, you can either bench bleed it, or if you want to, you can also install the new one, line up the hole in the brake booster, put the 2 bolts back on, then you need to bleed the master. Most come with instructions.
  1. Begin by removing the cap.
  2. Follow the directions that come with the kit to select the suitable adapters, and then connect the adapters and tubes to the ports on the cylinder. The other ends of the tube extend down into the master cylinder, and are held in place by a plastic clip.
  3. With the bleeder kit installed, fill the master cylinder about halfway with new brake fluid. Use a large screwdriver to depress the valve assembly inside the master cylinder. If you do not have a vise you can mount the master cylinder on the vacuum brake booster and bleed the master cylinder.
  4. Small bubbles will appear in the fluid. Continue working the valve assembly until no more bubbles appear. This indicates that the cylinder has been thoroughly bled.
once it is bled then you hook up the brake lines, and bleed all the brakes. starting with the furthest from the master cylinder. Passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front. make sure you check the brakes to make sure there is no air, better to be safe then sorry. also, check anything you had disconnected, to make sure it is not leaking.

In simple terms, by just looking at it, you can figure out how to do the master cylinder, but to be safe, get a repair manual.

I have a 1997 ford f150 . when i give it brakes my pedal goes all the way down . could it be my master cylinder?


yes it is most likely the master cylinder take one of the brake lines off and hold your finger over the port on the master cylinder and have someone slowly push the brakes in slowly if fluid doesnt spray out you either need to rebuild it or have it replaced a rebuild kit is cheaper than the cylinder but its your decision
