Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Hydraulic Control Valves -> Master Cylinder
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Master Cylinder

Some vehicles use a conventional tandem master cylinder with two hydraulic pistons operating inline. The primary piston controls the front brake system and the secondary piston controls the rear brake system.

Other models use a master cylinder that operates the same as the conventional master cylinder, but also incorporates a quick take-up feature in the rear chamber to reduce excessive pedal travel which may result from increased fluid displacement required to move the low drag caliper piston out against the rotor.

The quick take-up uses a spring-loaded ball check valv...

Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

The braking system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment. If bleeding manually, check fluid level frequently.

Brake fluid should never be reused. Before driving the vehicle, check brake operation to ensure a firm pedal has been obtained.

Brake fluid will damage electrical connections and painted surfaces. Use shop cloths, suitable containers, and fender covers to prevent brake fluid from contacting these areas. Always seal and wipe off brake fluid containers to prevent spills.
