Question about 1997 GMC Sierra
My '97 Sierra 1/2 ton truck suddenly lost its brakes as I was driving yesterday. The brake pedal went down to the floor, and luckily I was driving at only 25 mph so managed to get it home safely. Transmission is manual. What should I have checked? Fluid, brake lining, drums? Would like to talk intelligently to my local mechanic when I tow it in. I am a woman, and in my town mechanics really take advantage if a "female" just drops off a car and says "Fix it."
You need to check the fluid in the master cylinder first. if it is empty you have a leak somewhere. if full then probably a bad master cylinder.brakes just being worn will not cause you to lose all pedal. while if they are worn should be replaced if they say you just need a brake job then be suspicous
