Question type: General

I am just wondering what it is, it does not come out of the master cylinder - it comes out of the reservoir and goes into a metal tube and disappears into the bowls of the engine compartment

J im- I can barely figure out the typing and have no idea how to post a picture. It is just a hose that comes right out of the side of the plastic reservoir at the front of the reservoir,it joins a thin metal tube that heads straight down and I can't see where it goes to.

That's fine. I looked up your master cylinder on rockauto.com. There's 2 listings. One with the hose and one without. The one with, like yours, is for vehicles with traction control. Vehicles with traction control have the antilock brake system tied into the traction control. The two systems work together to help you maintain control if you go into a skid. So that's what the hose must be for. HTH. -Jim

Jim- THANKYOU ! I do not take my 1994 to a dealership for service and my guy didn't know what the hose did and it was bugging me to know.

You desire a best answer click - I didn't mention that not only my mechanic didn't know the answer but neither did about 5 other car guys and none of them went to the trouble of finding an answer. Now I can inform them so that they'll know what it is for and that might help out someone who is having a problem that might relate to this hose.
