Re: Delco Moraine Powermaster ABS III

The rear wheels of this car do not brake at all; no brake fluid reaches them.
The front wheels brake properly.
On inspection of the master cylinder, I found out that when the brake pedal is pushed down
no fluid gushes out of the opening for the brake pipe of the rear wheels.
If left open however the fluid keeps dripping out of this opening.
Can this be due to a mal function of the rear wheels solenoid? If yes I could replace it.
Or could there be another cause?
As mentioned before, both front wheels brake perfectly and the fluid runs OK.

Your help will be appreciated!
Tks.
