Brake Master Cylinders
Most late model vehicle brake systems are in two locations, with each axle as its own location. If a fluid leak occurs in one area, only one of the axles will lose their brakes and your vehicle will still be able to stop. The brake master cylinder supplies pressure to both areas of the car. It uses two pistons in the cylinder usually with a spring between each one. This way if one fails or the spring breaks the other piston will be able to push into the other piston creating the pressure needed to apply pressure to the brake calipers. The valve will typically have an electric sensor that will warn the driver if there is a problem with the brake system.
When you press the brake pedal, it pushes on the primary piston. Pressure builds in the brake master cylinder and lines as the brake pedal is depressed further. The pressure between the primary and secondary piston forces the secondary piston to compress the fluid in its area.
