Way to Identify the Failed Brake Master Cylinder of Car

Slide2:

The brake master cylinder is an important component in the braking system and works as the main valve to push the brake fluid through the brake lines.

Slide3:

It can push a metal rod through the cylinder and force the fluid to pass through the braking system to the wheels.

Slide4:

One end of the rod is attached to the pedal and uses the hydraulic pressure to trap the brake fluid.

Slide5:

When you release the brake, the hydraulic pressure of the braking system reduces the brake fluid and return to the master cylinder fluid reservoir.

Slide6:

Like other components of the braking system, it also got damaged and cause dangerous issues. The below points define the signs of a failed brake master cylinder of the car.

Slide7:

Contaminated brake fluid

Slide8:

The brake master cylinder has a rubber seal which can be worn out or break down over time. It will contaminate the brake fluid and change its color.

Slide9:

The worn out rubber seals of the car can disable the master cylinder and sustain the amount of brake pressure available in it.

Slide10:

Lower level brake fluid

Slide11:

If you detect that the brake master cylinder of the car has a low level of brake fluid, then your car definitely faces a braking problem.

Slide12:

In this case, you will feel soft brake pedal when you leave your foot upon it. The fluid leaks and low fluid level of the brake confirm that the master cylinder has some problem.

Slide13:

Illuminated check engine light

Slide14:

If you find that the check engine lights of your car are illuminated on the dashboard, then it possibly the reason of damaged master cylinder.

Slide15:

The new cars have the pressure sensors that are used to detect the problem if something goes wrong with the brake fluid pressure generated by the master cylinder.

Slide16:

Irregular brake pedals

Slide17:

All the pressure of the braking system will eventually come from the brake master cylinder. When it is damaged, you will notice that the brake pedal is acting strangely.

Slide18:

When the brake master cylinder of the car is unable to seal or distribute the pressure, then it will provide you abnormal brake pedals.

Slide19:

Conclusion

Slide20:

The brake master cylinder is the vital part of the braking system and always reliable for performing the brake operations.

Slide21:

But the failed brake master cylinder will damage the brake and create an unsafe situation to drive the car.

Slide22:

If you find any types of issues in your master cylinder, then diagnosed the brake system by a professional technician.
