The cannister is an accumulator, it contains a high pressure nitrogen charge to keep brake system pressure, do not try to remove it before depressurizing the system

Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper


Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

I dont know where to add brake fluid on a 1989 jeep wrangler?


you should be able to add fluid by unscrewing to top of the master cylinder. Check for leaks around the brake lines and calipers, or a leak at the master cylinder(where you check the fluid). If a leak is found you will have to repair it. the rubber brake lines in the wheel wells are susceptible to cracking. then you will have to bleed the brake system with new fluid. I would recommend having a professional do it for you.

How to replace master cylinder on 1989 century


You have to Remove the brake lines going to the cylinder, then remove the 2 nuts holding it to the brake booster.

Make sure u bench bleed the new master before you install, the new one should come with a bench bleed kit, u must attach the 2 hoses to both ports on the master cylinder where the brake lines connect to, then run the 2 hoses into the top of the reservor and fill it with fluid, use a screw driver and pump the master cylinder until you can see no air bubbles running through the hoses

Brake pedal goes all the to the floor. can not


Check the reservoir to be sure the fluid is full. If not, top it off and try it again. If there's still trouble building pressure, pump the brakes a bunch of times, and then check around each wheel for fluid on the ground. If you see none, it's possible that you have a break in the line somewhere through the chassis and that the fluid is leaking out inside. If you see no evidence of leakage, and the reservoir is still full, you need a new brake master cylinder - what will have happened is that the diaphragm around the plunger inside the master cylinder (which moves through the cylinder when you push the pedal, and forces fluid out to the wheels) has a hole or tear in it, so instead of pushing the fluid out to the brakes, the plunger simply moves through the fluid. It never builds pressure, and your brakes don't work.

Loosing pressure to brakes. no leak in line or master cylinder but some dripage near back side of engine/ front of tranny. I didn't know it even ran anywhere near there but it's deffenatly brake fluid.


Sounds like it is either your master cylinder, or a combination valve leaking. Unbolt the master cylinder and see if it is wet behind it in the booster.

Fading brakes on 1989 T-bird


Sounds like all your basic brakes functions are covered. I ran into this intermittant problem before, it turned out to be the brake proportioning valve..it's that block type valve with the electrical connector in the center. The steel brake lines from the master connect to it. The valve regulates the pressure between the front and back brakes. The valve maybe malfuctioning internally.

Broken slave cylinder for a 1989 AT Ford Telstar


  • the slave cylinder is mounted on the bell-housing of the transmission. 
  • next to the brake master cylinder (where the brake fluid goes) is a small master cylinder. follow the fluid line coming off it and it will lead you to the slave cylinder.
