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

Break pedal slowly goes to the floor


When this happens you are in a dangerous situation. If you have a leak, once the fluid runs out you will have no brakes. If another reason, like a bad Master Cylinder, you may not get the pedal to return to its top position and will not have full braking efficiency.

If you are unfamiliar with the term "bleeding the brakes", you should probably pay someone knowledgeable to repair this. Some of the Autoparts stores sell videos showing "How to" do a repair like this.

I have a 98 ford F150 4x4 and the brake pedal lights had been staying on after i stopped and shut down the truck.Had to pull pedal up to shut them off. today i noticed a shaking in rear brakes and pedal...


you may have a bad master cylinder that is not pushing the brake pedal to the stop when not breaking.in other words the master allows the pedal to rest lower as it doesn`t have sufficeint residual pressure to push the pedal back,or the pedal is catching on something not allowing it to return to its rest position.this can cause the rear brakes to apply slightly as the pedal not being all the way in the rest position is applying just enough pressure to the system.if the pedal is going all the way to the floor then you need to check for a fluid leak in the system including the master cylinder(internal leak)if no external leak is found.

Replace rusted brake lines for ford van F150 1998. How i bleed the brakes


There is a bleeder screw at each caliper/wheel cylinder. You looosen this screw (don't remove it) and have someone depress brake pedal and hold it down. Tighten bleeder screw, release brake pedal, and repeat until you get only fluid (no air) from the bleeder.

Catch the fluid in something to kep it off the ground. Make sure you keep the master cylinder reservoir full of fluid during this process or you'll get air back in the lines.

You may have to do this several times for each wheel.
