Having problems with your 2001 Ford Taurus ?
How do you know if master cylinder is bad - 2001 Ford Taurus
Hello robj502My name is Roger and I will help you. A general rule of thumb is to pump the brake two or three times. Hold steady pressure on the pedal. Do this with the engine off. The brake pedal should hold firm. Should the pedal creep toward the floor board you either have a leak in the brake system or the master cylinder is by passing. Should you be loosing brake fluid look under the car at all 4 wheels. If you have fluid leaking on any of the wheels you most likely found the problem. If you cannot detect any where under the car. I would suspect the master cylinder. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya.Roger
