Question about 1997 Ford F350 Crew Cab
My brakes were fine and suddenly when I attempted to stop, the pedal went all the way to the floor with no brakes. I tried to pump them and got a little brake but no where near enought to stop. Afterwards I noticed a warning light on the dash.......something regarding brake failure''.
With no leaks and a little braking action returning by pumping the pedal I would suggest looking into a master cylinder. Low brake fluid level in the master cylinder will cause the brake warning light to illuminate (possibly, also the ABS light).
If the truck has the 7.3L diesel, it will have a vacuum pump which supplies vacuum for all vacuum accessories. I believe if the vacuum level drops below 10 in. of Hg, the brake light will illuminate. If the vacuum pump fails you'll know it as the brake pedal will require quite a bit of effort to effect any braking effort.
