How do I change the brake master cylinder on a 2000 dodge dakota rt 360 magnum 5.9l v8 mopar


disconnect the front and rear brake lines, undo bolts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster. Bench bleed the new master and reconnect to booster and reconnect lines. Be very careful when undoing the lines from the master cyclinder as you do not want to damage them. Soak with WD-40 before loosening. Once everything is back in place you will need to bleed all calipers and/or wheel cylinders. Again soak the bleeder screws beforehand with WD-40 as they break off easily.

Losing brake fluid


if you have no indication of a brake fluid leak then you may have a bad master cylinder that has an internal leak that is losing brake fluid and being burnt (sucked into engine)by way of the power brake booster. if you undo the master from the power brake booster and move it ahead enough to see if it is damp were it bolts to the booster then you have a defective master cylinder.

2005 silverado brakes sticking front only after driving little


I had the same problem and replaced both calipers with no change, I figured it was the master cylinder. When I pulled off the master cylinder I saw the vacume booster had about 2 cups of brake fluid in it which leaked from the front of the master cylinder. I replaced master cylinder and vacume booster and brakes work great now.

20000 GMC Jimmy brake light came on, someone told us it's the booster. Is this the same as the master cylinder or something different. Also where is it located?


don`t just change parts because someone told you to without checking it out first.with the brake light on check the fluid level in the master cylinder if its down check the float in the cylinder as these will get stuck.also check for fluid leaks in the entire brake system and condition of the brakes themselves as when they wear especially the disc brakes the fluid will go down as the brake fluid takes up the worn brake material so the calipers don`t have to move as far to apply the brakes.the master cylinder is the component that holds the brake fluid under the hood that you would top up if low.the brakes booster is what the master is bolted to and gives the car power brakes as opposed to manual brakes.

2000 mercury cougar.....no brake paddle we replaced master cly,booster......what can it be


did you bleed all of the air from the master cylinder before you installed it, this has to be done. also when replacing the master cylinder, all 4 wheel cylinders will have to be bled, in order to get all of the air out of them. while doing the wheel cylinder bleeding , you will have to make sure that the master cylinder doe's not run out of brake fluid, check it each time you bleed a wheel cylinder , add brake fluid to the master cylinder each time or when it is getting low. hope that this has helped you.

I need step by step info to replace my front brakes for a 04 xter


I suggest that you visit the autozone.com website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to an online repair manual for the car. Pretty handy. The steps for replacing the brakes should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.

BRAKE BOOSTER?


A bad brake booster will result in a hard brake pedal, stiff and more effort required to stop the truck. Here are my questions to you, first, you said you replaced the master cylinder, did you bench bleed it before you installed it? If not, there IS still air in it, regardless of how much you bleed the brakes at the wheels. Second, when you bled the brakes, after changing the calipers and master cyl., did you also bleed the proportioning valve? Sometimes air can get trapped in the valve, and its almost impossible to get it out bleeding just the wheels. And lastly, when the brake light comes on, does the abs light also come on with it? Air can also get trapped in the abs control module too.

Hard to depress the brakes and when depress the engine idle chang


It sounds like you have a bad power brake vacuum booster.It is the big round metal cylinder behind the brake master cylinder where you add fluid.
