My parents have a 1996 ford taurus v6. They havn't driven it in about 2-3 months. They went to move it and the brakes were non-existant and the car went through my garage door. Could it be a brakeline or master cylinder? Anyone have issues like this? I just want to know where to start. Brake pads/rotors/calipers were good. Thanks!
If it is a bad line there should be a puddle of brake fluid under the car. I don't believe the master cylinder will completely fail maybe only one side. If the section of the cylinder fails the pedal will travel further but will still supply brakes. If it was close to the door they may not reacted in time to prees harder.
Yeah, I'm going to check it out on sunday on my day off. Just trying to see what I am walking into. haha I am driving out to nj from pa just to look at it so i wasnt sure if i should be prepared with anything. Worst case probably a MC. best case..needs fluid and a bleed lol
