SOURCE: need to replace brake line from rear axle forward

Chanses are it broke behind the gas tank wear it runs along the frame rail. You don't need a diagram to fix that, just unhook it at both ends and break it off or cut it off buy the tank and take the pieces with you to a auto parts store and they will match it up with new line, just take a tape measure and measure from the rear axel to the front block or perportioning valve, and don't worry about the piece behind the tank, just run the new line alongside the old one behind the tank unless you want to pull the tank out.

How long does it take to change a breack booster for a chevy s10


I can't remember what book says but I can't imagine it taking more than 3 or 4 hours taking your time even if you mess up and spill the fluid out of the Master cylinder and have to bleed the system. BTW, it's "Brake" Booster and sits on the firewall between the brake pedal linkage and the master cylinder. Oh and there are big differences between a 96 GMC Sierra and a Chevy S10 but the job is about the same and should take about the same length of time

Removing the factory clip on the brake booster pad for a 98 GMC Sierra


This is a little tricky, if it is the round type as I recall...
The best way to remove it is rotate the clip till you locate small hole/opening. Insert a small punch into clip and open it up/spread the clip apart. It best to purchase a new clip (cheap) before removing the old one. Install the new clip with a flat blade screwdriver by pushing straight onto pedal rod. .

95 sierra 5.7 suddenly has rough idle and brake pedal is hard to push at times checked booster hose& made sure still connected. runs fine at high speeds


If you have a hard brake pedal the most likely cause is the brake booster has gone bad, this can also cause your rough idle situation as well because of the vacuum issue that will be a problem because of the bad booster. there are 2 nuts that hold the master cylinder to the booster and 4 bolts on the booster under the dash, not a difficult job to replace you can leave the brake lines attached as well which will save time from bleeding the entire brake system. I hope this helps

Brakes problem


jcakey: My name is Roger and I will answer your question for you. From what you describe the problem sounds like a bad vacum brake booster. A simple way to check is to do the following. With the engine off. Press on the brake pedal 4 or 5 times. This will deplete all vacum in the booster. Next start the engine while holding your foot on the brake pedal. The pedal should drop a couple of inches. If the pedal does not drop. The problem is the brake booster. When the booster is bad you will hear a hissing sound inside of the truck when you apply the brakes..
If the master cylinder is faulty you will wave mushy brake to no brakes.Your ABS and brake failure lights will be on. Should you need further help please just ask. I will be glad to help you. Please rate this answer as this is how we know your answer was useful.Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
