I did not have a "popping sound". That might mean its a cable. Rather, my key would not turn. This happened to me today on my 97. I had to let down the rear passenger seats, climb in the truck, remove the trim screws on the truck lid, push the liner back, and use a screwdriver to release the latch--it was at where a little green tab was near the upper part of the latch mechanism. Then the lock still did not work. The lock is now at the locksmith for repair. I'll post tomorrow to say if this worked. I suspect it would be not too expensive to have a bodyshop do this if you don't feel like it. Actually, a body shop suggested I give it a try. Best, David

What about the master cylinder? They go out, ha. That's all I can help you with though.

You have to install the master cylinder that is compatible with your truck otherwise if will not work. There is really no difference in a 2wd & 4wd when it comes to the master cylinder.

If you mean the brake master cylinder, then squealing might mean that you have a vacuum leak.

In the clutch master cylinder next to the brake master.

The fuel filter is located by right side of the engine...It's in front of the master cylinder..

Remove clutch cable connection and then remove slave cylinder line from master. Then unbolt slave master and remove it. Follow same procedure in reverse order.

User Avatar

Remember, keep the master cylinder full so you don't suck air into the slave cylinder. Then you put the fluid in the slave cylinder.

a heater does not have a master cylinder; 'master cylinder' goes with assisted braking.

Logically if the Master Cylinder keeps failing there are only a certain amount of things coming into play here. Either you are buying defective products or the brake fluid is contaminated and causing the Master Cylinder to fail prematurely. Let's start with the Master Cylinders you are installing. I will not name suppliers but not all Master Cylinders are created equal. Some rebuilt Master Cylinders are defective right out of the box. I suggest you buy a NEW master cylinder. Before installing the new Master Cylinder flush all old brake fluid out of the entire system, install a new master cylinder and install fresh fluid from an unopened can. With a new master cylinder and fresh clean fluid, you should have no future problems.

It's on the slave cylinder which is mounted on drivers side of the transmission right behind the bell housing.

It is located on the firewall between the brake master cylinder and the wheel well. It should be have a round black cap on top. It is about three by an inch and ahalf. Do not confuse this with the brake master cylinder.

The clutch master cylinder should be attached to the firewall, nearest the drivers side, inline with the clutch pedal. In the engine compartment, look for a smaller version of the brake fluid reservior.

In most vehicles it's a small reservoir on top of the master cylinder.
