I need to know which brake line at the master cylinder controls which tire on a 1997 ford escort with out abs or a brake line diagram. I can not trace them from the master cylinder to the bottom of the firewall after that it's easy peasy.I have four lines on the master one in the front on the top, one in the front on the bottom, one in the back coming off of the side and one in the back on the bottom. I know which one is the problem from the brake to the firewall however I can't trace from the bottom of the firewall to the master.

fill master cylinder, start at right rear. the way I do it is make sure cap is back on master cylinder. pump the brakes a few times then hold them. have another person open the bleeder valve at the tires until brakes go to floor. hold them down until bleeder is retightened but be sure master cylinder is not out of fluid. then go to left rear and do the same procedure, then right front, then left front. check fluid and if air is all out there should be brakes. good-day ! THIS IS HOW I HAVE ALWAYS DONE IT ! heres a little trick of sorts. you can change a master cylinder, and if you bench bleed it first. and no fluid is lost from the master cylinder lines you do not need to bleed the whole system. but make sure cylinder is full of fluid before putting on vehicle and all air is out of master cylinder.
first thing have some one push the brake for you. every time thay push. look very close at each tire to see if you see brake fluid then look from passenger side looking at the driver side frame if you find no leaks any ware all ales its the master cylinder
i shall help u by telling the procedure.
first remove the brake cable from the caliper.
now check for the dusts if any and re insert into the disc caliper
now bleed the brake master cylinder.
strongly kick the brake.keep it in pressed condition and pour in the brake oil.
now release the brake pedal and push it for two times and then release.now the oil will be evenly distributed into your master cylinder.
To be noted that connection goes directly from brakes master cylinder to the brake pedal. from the brake master cylinder the connection goes to the two wheels(front).check for any oil leakage.
Make sure it is full of brake fluid first. If it is, check for leaks around the clutch master and slave cylinder. The master cylinder is mounted on the firewall below the brake master cylinder and towards the driver side. Follow the line to find the slave cylinder on front of the transmission. If you find no leaks, either the master and/or slave cylinder is bad or the clutch fingers are broken.
I AM SURE IT DOES NOT ..BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE BRAKE LINES COMING FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER AND THEY ALL GO TO A BLACK COLORED BOX THAT IS THE ABS MODULE..ALOT OF SMAL CARS DO NOT HAVE ABS BECAUSE THEY ARENT AS EFFECTIVE ON THE SMALLER CARS...
