This sounds like the abs system is coming on, this may be due to a bad wheel sensor, the best way to see if the noise is the abs is to remove abs fuse and drive, the abs light will come on but drive to see if noise is gone. by removing the fuse the system will shut down. the way it makes noise when close to a stop means the abs could be the noise, a bad sensor at the wheel would cause this. it looses the signal for a sec or two and the compuetr thinks the wheel is skidding and the rest are moving, so the noise you hear is the abs unit release the wheel. if the abs is the problem then the next step is to have a garage scan the abs module for codes. the codes will tell you where the problem is and which wheel. good day.

Why is it so hard to apply brake pedal?


_______power brake booster, check vacuum to booster and the check valve for brake booster. primary symtom is high hard pedal that requires greater then normal pedal pressure to stop car. testing booster= pump brakes several times with engine off to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on brake pedal. you should be able to feel the pedal fade away a bit, and then become firm. But not hard. if you feel nothing at the pedal when engine starts. Brake booster is not working. Good-day! make sure vacuum is going to booster with engine running. it may just be a bad vacuum line or check valve.

We find ourselves on the Alaskan Hwy, at Ft. Nelson. Yesterday we noticed a whistling noise coming from what appears to be brake compartment and when you apply the brake or turn the steering wheel, it...


Hi,
A whislting noise would make me suspect a cracked or broken vaccuum line. Whistling as it sucks air into the system. I would check the biggest one first, on your brake booster. It is a large line coming from the engine to the brake booster assembly located behing the brake master cylinder. I would check all the lines with engine running, have a helper rev the engine slightly while you listen in the engine compartment to see if you can locate it. Also work the brakes simultaneously. Cold weather can make older lines crack which can cause a serious problem depending on which line cracks or breaks. Check all your air lines first and see if you find it in that system before assuming something more major. A crack in other engine system lines will usually produce a fluid leak of some type.....Good luck!..Mike

Power brakes aren't working. hissing noise when braake is stepped on.


Sounds like the vaccum hose is off to the brake booster. Check that its is right behind the brake fluid rev. were you put the fluid in for the brakes. If the line is fine it could also be the booster its self.

1991 chevy lumina euro 3.1 - motor stalls and conks out when comming to a stop and applying the brake - just made it home holding the gas pedal and the brake and keeping the idle high enough not to stall...


It sounds like it could be your brake booster starting to fail. The brake booster is Vacuum operated so it requires suction/vacuum from the engine. When the booster fails it allows the engine to **** all that air and it bypasses the carburator / fuel injection system so then it wants to quit as the wrong fuel and air mixture is getting into the engine.

Quick test - Remove the vacuum line from the brake booster and hold your thumb over the end of the line/ hose. You will feel the suction but when the hose is closed off the engine should run just fine. When the thumb is removed it will idle very rough and maybe even quit. DO NOT drive the car withouth the vacuum hose removed.

Your booster will look something like this When you open the hood and are looking at the firewall on the back of the engine compartment you will see it directly in front of the steering wheel area on the right side. The hose that you want to remove will have an end like this. It could be black or white.

If the booster is your problem, you may want to have a local shop do the install as it is involving your brakes. That is a huge safety factor and you want it done right.

Good Luck.

Engine rumbles hard


Sounds like it maybe a vaccum leak because when you apply the brake you brake booster uses vaccum to assist in braking so maybe theres not enough vaccum (air) going into the engine so its causing it to stall. Thats just a guess

check 2 things first one is their is a plastic check valve that is inserted into the booster (under your hood) then goes to a vaccum line ,then to the engine, pull it out of the booster and check the valve it should be L - shaped. it might have a hole in it causing a vaccum leak. be carefull pulling it out not to break it just pull straight out. if that is ok put it back in. then your problem is going to be the brake booster the big black round case. sometimes the diaphram inside the booster rips causing a vaccum leak which causes a hard brake pedal and you have to stand on the pedal to stop. then you will have to repace the whole thing but not the master cylnder unbolt master cylder with the brake lines connected, the lines will give then disconnect brake pedal arm under dash inside of trk their should be 2 nuts or 4 buts under dash on inside of firewall near brake pedal then remove booster pulls out from under hood. there is not much to replacing them.
