Question about 1992 Ford F250
96 ford windstar van I have been told to replace the master cylinder. But I am not sold. Now I have brakes not even half the time.you can pump them and have them & sometimes they will work just fine for A little bit. I am having to add brake fluid but have not noticed any bad leaks. To me it sounds like wherever the brake fluid is going out air is coming in and keeping the lines from being bled. It could be a wheel cylinder, master cylinder, cap or gasket on the master cylinder or a tiny hole in the brake line.I just dont have the time and money to buy new parts & it not be fixed.So mechanics saying replace the master cylinder without even seeing it or hereing any more than brakes go to the floor does not sell me .Please help!!
Quick tests to do to see if your master cyl is nackerd.
pull the valve on the brake buster out ( the 1 with rubber hose attached, and be gentle so as not to brake it)
check for moisture/ brake fluid on the valve. if there is mosture you will need a new master cyl.
you can also undo the master cyl from the booster and gently slide it forward and see if there is any fluid behind it and on the back off it if there is fluid you will need a new master cyl
good luck these checks are very easy and you should be ok to perform them
