Did you replace these all by yourself or have them installed ?
Brake master cylinder has to be bench bled and the entire system has to be bled when installed. Or there will never be any brakes. If this is not the problem I need more information in order to diagnose correctly.

1991 PATHFINDER Does this car have a proportional valve and would this cause front calipers to lock up?


Need year make and model. In most newer vehicles the valve is located in the master cylinder. It will not normally lock up the front wheels. It usually controls one front and one rear wheel at a time in the event of a brake fluid loss. If front calipers are locking up you could have seized caliper pistons/slide assemblies. The flex hoses may be deterioated internally due to contaminated brake fluid or the master cylinder may be defective

02 Ford Explorer sporttrac xlt. New rotors calipers pads and master cylinder. Bled it twice stream looks good new fluid. One day breaks stick then the next no breaks Break light on Proportional valve?


For some reason these vehicles you need to bleed brakes several times, had same problem, so air hangs up in lines somewhere it apears. When you say brakes sticks, describe it better, locked up, or dragging on rotors?

2006 toyota tundra sr5 crew cab 4x4 losing brake fluid in the booster ? What do I replace there seems to be some kinda control valve maybe for the abs in between the master cyclinder and the brake booster...


Take Off Nuts That Hold Master Cylinder To Booster. Pull Master Cylinder Away From Booster--Do Not Damage Lines--Feel With Finger At Rear Of Master Cylinder For Fluid--If Found Replace Master Cylinder And Booster With Total Unit Combo For Better Warranty. DO NOT FOOT BLEED--Pressure Bleed Or Gravity Bleed Only.

Toyota 4 runner brake booster noise


if you can see brake fluid around the booster then yes it is most definitely not right, but sometimes these can fail without any fluid noticable, the visible fluid could mean that the brake master cylinder is failing & this will have an adverse affect on the booster power & performance, check your brake master cylinder first as this is a much simpler & easier repair than the brake booster & can be done at home on a flat drive or or street even, a Haynes manual is invaluable for the home mechanic & i recommend you get one as soon as you can as this will help you diagnose the problems with your vehicle before going to a mechanic/garage, if it is the brake booster at fault then i suggest you go to your local scrapper/breakers yard armed with tools & the Haynes/Chilton's Manual (Depending on which side of the pond you are from) & remove the brake booster from a now deceased Toyota 4Runner & remove the brake booster & master cylinder in one should only cost you a few Quid or Bucks & replace the part once your vehicle is back at home, once the parts have been replaced the brake system will need to be bled so that there is no air in the brake lines, this can be easily done with two people at home, Jack up one corner, remove that wheel & then just crack off the bleed nipple of the brake line Putting a bit of clear hose over the nipple to catch the excess brake fluid in a jug etc & have a friend push down slowly on the pedal, when only fluid comes out with no air then the system is bled for that wheel, Check the level in the brake master cylinder & repeat the process for the other 3 corners/wheels Once done your brake pedal should fell firm & Not spongy, If you get a spongy feeling when braking after this then there is still air in the brake lines & the system needs to be bled again, of course if you have done it right then your brakes should feel firm underfoot. Please don't forget to rate me, regards, Paul.

Brake problem hard to press on 1995 toyota 4 runner. replaced calipers and pads rotors and bleed the lines three times. Is it the master cylinder or power booster


When you expeirience a hard brke pedal the first thing to diagnose is a bad or inop power brake booster. First thing to check is the vacume check valve on the booster housing that is connected to a vacmue hose. Be sure you do have vacume from the hose first before replacing check valve.

I have a slow brake fluid loss. I think it may from the master cylinder. Are there any seals in the lines that go into the master cylinder unit.


no they are inverted flare fittings no seals check all lines and calipers/wheel cylinders if all are dry remove the vacuum hose from the booster if there is brake fluid in the hose the master cylinder is bad

Replced front brake pads and calipers adjusted


Bleed the master cylinder first. You have to do that before you belled any calipers or wheel cylinder.

2002 Toyota Sequoia power brake booster % master cylinder are bad


Mr. Clark:
It would be extraordinary for a technician to recommend a booster and a master cylinder with no previous mention from you of a possible problem in this area. In other words, the technician had no business looking at the m/cyl or the booster, unless you told him that your braking was deficient.
Here is what REALLY happened: Somewhere, I'd bet, your brake light came on, and somebody "topped off" the master cylinder, to shut the light off. Now, please understand that the brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir DROPS PROPORTIONALLY to the wear of the brake pads. When the tech replaced the front brake pads, he obviously had to squeeze the caliper pistons into the housings to allow the insertion of the new pads. This action forced the brake fluid from the now-compressed caliper pistons BACK into the master cylinder, and it sprayed out from under the cap, coating the cylinder and the booster. Tell that repair service that you do NOT need a booster and a master cylinder, THEY caused the problem with the fluid being everywhere. I am confident that I just saved you a significent amount of money that you do NOT need to spend. Have a great day.
