no break pressure, but no leaks. Newer breaks

Asked by Nov 25, 2015 at 10:07 AM about the 1993 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello! I am not getting any break pressure right now. I checked my break lines, no leaks, lines look fine, and there are no leaks visible at the master cylinder. Fluid is full as well.

Any idea why I'm not getting any pressure? All breaks were replaced not this summer, but last summer, and the vehicle is lightly used, only back and forth to work.

If this happen out of the blue,i think you may have a bad brake master cylinder.

Master cylinder is bad. Easy enough to change. Just get a u-tube video on how to bench bleed the master cylinder. If you do not get it right, you'll have to do it all over.
