If the brakes work but you have to push very hard, try checking the vacuum supply to the brake booster with the engine running.

Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them.

How to change the master cylinder and brake booster on a 1988 ford ranger?


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg_uRf78Jyo

This is showing how to do the brake booster and not the master cylinder and it is for a 1983 which is only 5 yrs older but basically the same procedure is performed on both the '83 vs. '88 models. You just have to go one step further to do mastercylinder but you remove the brake lines first and the proceed in removing it. Before you put master cylinder back on, you will have to bench it to insure all the air is removed so you won't get air into the brake system.

Abs brake system


Best case scenario bad vacuum pressure to the brake booster. Worst case bad abs control module or valve body/motor the abs system works by add and removing hydraulic pressure through valves and electric motor. Try using block off plugs at the master cylinder( remove lines plug outlets at master cylinder) check if brake pedal position and pressure is good(if there is no change problem is master cylinder or brake booster/ vacuum) if plugging at master cylinder solved issue repeat procedure at abs valve body after reinstalling lines from master cylinder if your problem returns your issue is in the abs valve body if plugging at the abs solves problem reconnect at the valve body bleed each line one by one testing between each line until you find the problem

Abs is still on. i have new pads and master cylinder.


The ABS system is separate from the normal braking system (pads, rotors, master cylinder, etc.). It's essentially a computer that pumps the brakes during heavy braking to prevent, or at least reduce the possibility of a skid. The ABS system needs to be tested and repaired by a qualified mechanic.

Having trouble with the brakes on my '90 Ford ranger. Replaced the master cylinder and still have very little braking power. Any help would be appreciated!


***Seek out professional help this vehicle is not safe to operate.***


Check the vacuum line going to the brake booster.

This is the big round chamber behind the master cylinder.

Hope this tip helps.

Ford Ranger 1994 breaking system just stopped working. No tension on pedal and on checking no brake fluid.


2 places to check 1. look at the rear wheel backing plates for moisture 2. pull the master cylinder back and look for fluid in the vacuum booster. if leaks at the rear its going to be rear wheel cylinders which will require replacing wheel cylinders and shoes. if the vacuum booster is full replace the master and booster.

How do i change manual to power brakes on 1988 ford ranger


Not sure exactly but I love to do stuff like this. First thing I would do is go to a salvage yard and rob the pieces form another truck with power brakes. You know you need the booster and the master cylinder, but you might also need the pedal and the pedal bracket. All the lines and the combo valve and calipers and wheel cylinders should be fine.

Replacing my brake booster


go to the master cylinder and remove it from the booster, disconnect the vacuum line from the booster, then disconnect the brake plunger from your brake pedal inside the vehicle, then remove the booster mounting bolts from inside the vehicle then remove the booster, install in reverse order, once you install the master cylinder, you will need to bleed out any air in the brake system, hope this helps, let me know
