I have a 2000 Taurus, I think the master cylinder is bad. The pedal travels all the way down, barely having any brakes. Any ideas on what this could be? If it is the master cylinder, how hard is it to replace? Thanks for any help you can give.
Thanks
Terry

P.S. Great forum by the way.

IT could definitely be the master cylinder but for me this is an indication that you have a leak, and that could be just anywhere in your brake system.

First I would fill the fluid reservoir with the appropriate brake fluid and I'd drive straight for the shop unless of course you'd like to tackle that yourself.

It could also be a rear wheel brake cylinder. Even if it's the smallest leak, as soon as there's a hole it sucks in air. Then your brake system will be full of air which would make your brake peddle feel very moochy! <_<
