It is under the hood on the firewall and on the driver side of the car and is attached to the booster for the brakes, if power brakes.

02 Pontiac Aztek front passenger brake line to abs


Clean the surface of the ABS where the brake lines attach.Some are stamped beside each line connection with LF ,RF, RR, LR, master cyl input front, master cyl input rear if yours is a stand alone unit.Otherwise you will have to follow the line back from your RF wheel to the ABS unit to determine which connection is for the RF.

I have a 91 nissan d21 and cnt find the slave cylinder or master slave cylinder?


The master is beside the brake master cylinder, between the brake cylinder and the fender. Follow the line down to the trans, it ends at the slave. Now that you know where they are... why do you want to know??

Ford f250 diesel . front brakes come on when driving, don't have to use brakes. changed all calipers and hoses. if i bleed the calipers then they will start to release, sometime you can hear the brake...


sounds like a bad master cylinder, next time brakes are locking up , open bleeder screw and see if that releases brake at that wheel if it does then replace master cylinder, good luck.

Pontiac G6 read disk brakes not showing any wear, emergency brake is being used.


Proportioning valve is not centered and the rear brakes are not functioning. To correct..... have someone apply hard brake pressure on pedal and some else crack open the bleeder screw on the a frontwheel. A click can beheard. the bleeder must be oened and clsed quickly. Follow the brake line s from the brake master cyl and you will be led to the proportioning valve. There is a pin sting out of both ends. They must be equally extended out on bot ends. Good Luck, Ned

I replaced master cyl, bench bled,but have no pedal.


Did you bleed the breaks at the wheels starting with the one thats the furthist away from the master cyl.? Its either that or you did not get all the air out when you bench bleed the master, or you got a defective master cyl. witch is not uncommon.

Bleed brakes but no pedal


Good! You bled the master cyl. before installation! The proper order of bleeding the lines, is to start with the wheel the greatest distance from the master cylinder. Then work your way to the next greatest distance, and last, the closest wheel. Make sure all air is removed from the lines before you proceed to the next wheel, and frequently check the master cyl. level, because, as I'm sure you know, if you **** in air at the master, you have to start all over again. I'm assuming you don't have a power bleeder, so with a helper do this with car running (make sure it's on safety stands and not going to fall on you!) Pump pedal 3 times, no need to mash the pedal into the floor, just 3 pumps 1/2 way down, hold 3rd pump at half way down level while bleeder is opened, when flow is about to stop at bleeder, close bleeder and repeat til no evidence of any air. Let me know how it goes and if you need any help.

Hi.what is the name of the wires going to under the master cylinder at the front end of the master cylinder ,I have a ford windstar 1998


do you mean the wires that go to the plug on bottom of master cyl or the plug on the side of master cyl ?
the wires to the plug on the side of the master cyl are to the brake fluid level sensor.
the wires to the plug on bottom of the master cyl are to either a brake pressure switch or a brake pressure transducer.
