yes it is most likely the master cylinder take one of the brake lines off and hold your finger over the port on the master cylinder and have someone slowly push the brakes in slowly if fluid doesnt spray out you either need to rebuild it or have it replaced a rebuild kit is cheaper than the cylinder but its your decision

SOURCE: How to change a master cylinder on 99 e250

i do agree with the haynes manual.

First off, pb blaster is your best friend for brake line bolts. You want to **** as much of the brake fluid out of the resivour as you can, Then you need to get the brake lines off the master cylinder that is on there. make sure you use the right size flare nut wrench when you are taking the lines off. rounding off brake line bolts is not fun, trust me. once the lines are off, ( turn counter clockwise) Just make sure you have a towel to put under the brake lines. for excess fluid. then with a ratchet, and extension, and socket you need to take the master off the brake booster. Also disconnect any electrical connectors and keep them clear ofthe brake fluid. When you have the 2 bolts out of the brake booster, the master should pull out and then your ready to work on installing the new one. when you get a new ,master, you can either bench bleed it, or if you want to, you can also install the new one, line up the hole in the brake booster, put the 2 bolts back on, then you need to bleed the master. Most come with instructions.

  1. Begin by removing the cap.
  2. Follow the directions that come with the kit to select the suitable adapters, and then connect the adapters and tubes to the ports on the cylinder. The other ends of the tube extend down into the master cylinder, and are held in place by a plastic clip.
  3. With the bleeder kit installed, fill the master cylinder about halfway with new brake fluid. Use a large screwdriver to depress the valve assembly inside the master cylinder. If you do not have a vise you can mount the master cylinder on the vacuum brake booster and bleed the master cylinder.
  4. Small bubbles will appear in the fluid. Continue working the valve assembly until no more bubbles appear. This indicates that the cylinder has been thoroughly bled.
once it is bled then you hook up the brake lines, and bleed all the brakes. starting with the furthest from the master cylinder. Passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front. make sure you check the brakes to make sure there is no air, better to be safe then sorry. also, check anything you had disconnected, to make sure it is not leaking.

In simple terms, by just looking at it, you can figure out how to do the master cylinder, but to be safe, get a repair manual.

it sounds like your still not getting all the air out of your lines. it helps to have a brake bleeder but they are expensive, it also could be that the gasket inside the master cylinder is inverted even if it is a new master cylinder this could be the case, ive had four bad remanned ones in a row, before i got a good one... hope i could help

SOURCE: 1997 ford escort brake line diagram

The LF and RR are in an independent circuit of the RF, LR wheels. The master cylinder already has the lines hooked up in a way that if you trace the lines, you can make your own diagram.

Whats wrong when the brake warning light stays on on a 2004 ford f150

Might be a short in the cluster, or your brake sensor switch in master cylinder may be bad, try a savage yard for cheaper parts. And last suggestion is to check for air in the brake lines.

Fix 1993 ford f150 right front brake hose

You will need a couple of spanners, one to fit the hose and one for where it attaches to the steel brake pipe.
Unscew the pipe connection first and then from the brake caliper, if it a disc brake.
Fit the new one to the brake first and the other end second. You will have to bleed the brake after. For this you will need a glass jar with a little brake fluid in it. Run a little hose from that to the bleed nipple on the caliper. Loosen the nipple and get someone to gently press down on the brake peddle while you watch the jar. Continue this until there are no more bubbles coming out of the little hose, hold down the peddle and tighten the nipple. Make sure that you have fluid in the master cylinder all the time.
You may have to repeat the prosess on the other side but if you do this right then you should not have to.
You may be able to buy a brake bleeding kit which should make the job easier.

I have a 1996 f150 4x4 5 speed v 4.9 engine that the clutch mastercylinder has to be pumped up before you can put vehicle in gear. It has a new clutch mastercylinder should I change out the slave cylinder?

did you bleed the slave cylinder? On the slave cylinder there should be a bleeder screw just like a brake caliper, perform the bleed procedure just like a brake, pump clutch and open slave bleeder, repeat untill all air is no longer noticed. keep master filled with fluid and top off when completed
