Many vehicle owners neglect to heed the warning signs of a spongy brake pedal and this is often the cause of serious accidents. When the brake pedal feels even the slightest bit spongy, take it to your mechanic immediately and have him check the brake fluid reservoir and the master cylinder. It could simply be a case of low brake fluid levels, or it could be something more serious such as a master cylinder that is on its way out.
This is a vital component in a vehicle. Any braking problems experienced could be a case of the master cylinder combinations being worn or parts within the brake/clutch master cylinder being broken. Again, if you detect anything unusual with the braking in your vehicle it is important to ask your mechanic to check it out. Be sure to ask them to fit premium parts to your vehicle if they need replacement and to check that your brake discs brake effectively.
When the slightest play is felt in the brake pedal it is often an indication that the master cylinders master brake housing is beginning to wear and this could ultimately be the cause of a serious road accident. The master cylinder reservoir could also be old and rusted, or it could have a minor hole in it. Ensure that proper parts are fitted to your vehicle, and that your brake pads brake optimally, and you will enjoy improved safety when on the road.
