well my wife emailed me saying the the bronco is having brake problems i asked her what type of brake problems she said that when she shifts to reverse the the brakes stick and wont release and sometimes when she puts it in drive. I told her it was more than likely the master cylinder am I correct to assume this. Its kind of hard for me to really know being deployed and all any info would be great before I tell her what to do

Has she recently applied the parking brake where normally it is never used? It could be a sticking e-brake cable. Get her to take it to a shop. They wont charge her for looking, then she can tell them she will get back to them after talking to you.

It's probably not the master cylinder.

I'd agree with Walt, ask her if she's used the parking brake recently.

Also, is she sure it's the brakes sticking? Could be a problem with the transmission not going into gear also... like you said, it's hard to guess over the internet...

One day the wife called me on her way to work to say her V8 explorer was making a wierd noise and just didn't feel right.

I went to check it out and turned out she had set the E brake earlier in the day and forgot to release it. The light on the dash wasn't glowing for some reason (not that she would have noticed it anyway!).

Well its not the trans it was just rebuilt before i left along with the engine but I'm thinking it could be the parking brake she says that it isn't making any noises I'm going to have her take it to a garage near her base
