Odd Brake problem

Post#1 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:19 am

I had the brakes and hoses replaced about a month ago and i discovered an odd issue. The week that got her back i would be driving along and press on the brake and it would be VERY hard but almost nothing would happen. If i pressed REALLY hard she came to a slow stop. This happened 2 times and then no problems, until last friday when the same thing happened again. What the heck is going on??

Thanks Fellas,
Doc

Yes that was my first inclination Doc, was check the vacuum pressure going to the vacuum booster.

if you have good pressure, then you need to possibly replace or rebuild that vacuum booster unit.
