        The Master Cylinder (Cardone Select New Master Cylinder - Part No. 13-2532) is connected to the brake pedal via a pushrod. The rod from the brake pedal pushes on the piston. It moves, closing off the compensating port and trapping fluid ahead of the primary cup. Any fluid trapped in the cylinder is then forced through a valve, called a residual pressure valve, into the brake lines. When the brakes are released, the master cylinder piston returns to its original position. An outlet port links the cylinder to the brake lines. An inlet port connects the reservoir with the space around the piston. A compensating port connects the reservoir to the cylinder, ahead of the primary cup. As we are not sure of the exact part you are referring we have provided the complete connections of a master cylinder.

Have pedal pressure when driven however if I have to use the breaks w/o time between (parking) do not have pressure to stop would this be amaster cyl prob or booster. Do not find any leaks in vac to booster.

        Sorry, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

        The most likely cause is a defective brake hose with a deteriorated lining that acts as a one-way valve and won't let brake fluid return to the master cylinder. As an alternative, there might be debris in the caliper's internal passageway performing the same undesired function to one or both pistons. Given the work you've described in regard to moving the pistons, it seems fairly unlikely that one of these would be sticking. Still, there's no piston return mechanism other than the wobble of the brake disk and a slight suction when the brake pedal is released, so with suitable rust in place, it's possible for a piston to stick in the 'brakes applied' position.

    • Q:

      When I apply my brakes I have no trouble stopping, but while stopped the pedal will slowly begin going down about two inches and becomes rock hard. I replaced the wheel cylinders and calipers recently and there are no leaks. Does this sound like a master cylinder problem ?

        I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
