Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab
Okay i was told by my uncle and dad that they think the master cylinder is bad on my truck and i have a 96 dodge turbo diesel 2500. How can I check it for sure but stay within my spending limit of less than $100?
First if there is no oil loss it may be ok . Do the following with the engine stopped press the brake pedal several times ,now hold the pedal down, start the engine the brake pedal should move down a little , brake booster ok. release brake then apply light pressure to brake pedal and hold , if pedal slowly moves down oil is bypassing the buckets repair cylinder , if pedal remains still master cylinder ok. If need be check all wheel cylinders and adjust brakes.

If you talking brakes not clutch. you can pump the brakes all day long and they don't build pressure and you not losing fluids the master is out. now if you pump them up and they are rock hard your hydrabooster is out.now if your mechanically incline you can order a master cylinder rebuild kit for like 20-30 bucks which is basically orings from local parts store and only tools you need are snapring pliers. or you can change the master ,bench bleed it first then bleed out the rr,lr,rf,lf in that order.hope i help.all under 100 bucks
