NO as long as vehicle is running the pedal will get soft, by using the vacuum from engine. Good Luck. I have had several BAD master cylinders in my shop. You have all the symptoms of a defective master. If it comes down to it you can actually get one from the Junk/salvage yard a used one. It should be fine, alot of re manufactured one are NO good. especially the ones that you have to re-use the old reservoirs.

I just had a simalar problem on a suzuki sidekick.. It turned out to be a bad piston seal inside the Master Cyl. I went through about a gallon of fluid before i took the master cyl apart.. because it was a "rebuilt" cylinder from a trusted brand name company.. So i called the rebuilding compang and they sent me one that they had checked.. It worked great and fixed the problem.. by the way did i mention that i had received 3 units from the parts store all with the same problem.. finally i took one apart and discovered the problem.

Need to install brake booster

Does it have one to begin with? If it does, it's as simple as replacing the part. Unbolt and replace. There is a rod behind it that must be in place when installing. If not, there should be instructions with the new one you buy! Remove Master cyul. Do not spill fluid anywhere as it eats paint... Have to get the proper rod length and install it behind the booster. Hook up a vacuum line from the manifold intake to the booster with a one way check valve pointing towards the booster. Rod can be adjusted by pedal feel, but there are specs which I do not have on me! Mount master cyl. back onto booster and that should be it! Make sure there is room for the hood to close.....

Ford ranger pedals went to floor booster was leaking changed booster and now when I tried 2 prime no fluid to back wheels and pedal sticks half way on way back up? Is my master cyl bad??

If the brake pedal sticks on the way up then i would have to say there is a problem in the master cylinder, even with other brake problems the pedal should always return,
also when installing the booster make the linkage to brake pedal and brake switch is installed correctly.

I REPLACED THE BREAKS AND CALIPERS ON MY 97 RAM AND NOW i HAVE NO PRESURE At all. I have no idea what to try next please help

When you open the hydraulic brake line air enters. You will have to bleed the air out before there will be any brake pressure.If the master cylinder is empty there will be air in it to, it is a dual cylinder. Remove both lines at the cylinder you will need a bleeder kit (from auto parts store) or make your own, the way to bleed it is to connect a tube to each port on the cyl. then take both tubes to enter the fluid in the top of the cyl.Slowly work the cyl. till all air is out of the cyl.If the vacuum booster has not had the vacuum released you must do that or the master cyl. will be ruined (with air in the cyl. the booster will drive the piston cups to the end and destroy them) After the master has been bled reattach the lines. Use the tool (from parts house) to hold the apportioning valve open. Keeping the master cyl. full at all times,open the bleeder screws on the calipers one at time and bleed all air out.

Is the master cylinder good? a bad master can cause this also did you bleed the master first before bleeding at the wheel and also make sure the bleeder screw is clean, if the hose is good then theres only a few things, a bad master or a master that wasnt bleed, try bleeding the master first then try rebleeding the brakes.

Bad brake booster

If you know for sure that the booster has failed, you need to unbolt the master cylinder from it, (sometimes you can move it away enough to not even disconnect lines.) Then unbolt the booster from the firewall, disconnect the pedal linkage if connected to booster. Remove & replace booster assembly and everything else you you took off. If you didn't have to remove master cyl you are done. If removed, bleed master before putting back into service!
