2000 Taurus Brake Problems
Hi there, I'm working on a '00 Taurus at the moment and I've got some questions. First off, just pulled the wheels off and there seems to be nothing wrong with the brakes. Pads and shoes look good, caliper seems to grab nice, and the wheel cylinders don't appear to be leaking.
Here's the issue. The peddle isn't soft but when you push it, it doesnt really do much (like there's a lack of hydraulic pressure). The fluid level is fine but it's black (I'm going to replace it with some new stuff).
My question is: Is it normal for these master cylinders to fail in this way? Usually they give you a squishy peddle. Also, does anyone have any ideas on what it could be?
BTW I also have driven my parent's 03 Taurus and it brakes like it should.
