Brake Master Cylinder

Hey,

Gotta sec, cause I gotta nice story?!

As I was pulling onto a very busy highway and coming to a stop, I press my brakes to slow down. As I was pushing on my brakes, I realized that the brakes were already pushed to the floor. I had no brakes, they failed, and I almost caused a major accident scene.

I drove it to my mechanic using my ebrake as a regular brake (you give that a try on ur own and tell me how you like it) and he told me that my master brake cylinder went bad.

I have a 1994 MGM, anyone ever heard of this happened before. Just happened out of the blue, and its only got 50,254 miles on it.

Its costing me $200 to replace it, was I ripped off?

Update: I went back and now they are saying that the booster is broken now. Another $120 f-ing dollars. Never going back to them again. The brakes are rock solid. Don't understand it.

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

Well, as for the master cylender, yes, I've replaced 4 of them for freinds, 93, 94, and 2 95s with 4.6s and ABS. $200 is a good price, new ones are $100 or so. As for the booster, I have not had to replace one of those, and $150 for a booster replace is a real good price, there a real pain in the butt.

Also, its a good idea to go with new when it comes to brakes, I say that because of the people that go to junkyards for brake parts, why I don't like those people, the stories I hear of people getting killed cause a used brake part failed. People with used tires is bad enough.

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

Ok, nice nice, I have one more question. I know for a fact that I have a bad ABS sensor, but I don't know where, Ill figure that out later, but if I were to order a new sensor, is it easy to reinstall and where would I buy one?

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

Well, if your talking the speed sensor for the wheel, its a pain. As for getting one, murrays, autozone, advanced auto, pep boys are places around here I got prices from for a 95 T-bird rear abs, it was $45 cheapest for the car. You have to pull the wheel, rotor, caliper, back plate, and some times the dust sheild. But I never got to do the job, the car got T-boned in the passenger side 2 days before he was supose to come in, it was the other drivers fault, didn't yeild.

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

No, he still paid, why you think he was out that day? He was getting the part. He would have returned it, but it got crushed in the accident. This guy just has bad luck, crashed his other 94 TB and before that his 84 ranger. But hes a good guy to get wrecks from :)

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

Ouch, I was out doing a little dragging with some friends, when someone pulled in front of me, I slammed the brakes, they locked and I skidded. It was the best feeling ever; darting towards a buick full of old people with my tires screeching all the way. No accident tho, they caught just in time, but it was still fun. I have no ABS for some reason, can't figure out why, the computer ain't telling me shit, so I can't figure out why they aren't working. I get codes 625 and 334 or something. Weird.

Re: Brake Master Cylinder

If there were any places to drag, I would be there, but I can't find any.
