How do i know if my master cylinder is bad?

Answer

You will know if your master cylinder is bad if you have no brakes. The master cylinder should have two reservoir one for a pair of tires. If the reservoirs is low or empty you have a leak. If the reservoirs are full and you still feel like you should have more braking power it could be the master cylinder. This part has a very low failur rate so you should have a good reason why you are targeting it.
