Question: Master Cylinder?

I just want some feedback before I start buying parts.

I was driving to my daughter's bus stop this morning (it's down a very steep hill) I had to stop on the hill and when i went to go again my car was stopped, wouldn't roll at all and the brake petal was stuck to the floor. I tried prying it up with my foot (no go) and finally got it unstuck when I put it in reverse and pressed on the gas. I could hear the vacuum booster hiss a little bit. I'm really hoping that, that is not the issue..... I replaced the booster 13 months ago.

I'm thinking that it is the master cylinder, it's relatively inexpensive and it looks easy to replace. But, I don't want to spend $65 and have it be the booster.....

Thanks in advance!!

I think your master cylinder push rod may be maladjusted. When you replace the master, did you adjust it? A brake pedal stuck on that can't be pulled back up is a very uncommon fault.

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
