SOURCE: brakes go to the floor and have an air sucking

You have a leak in the power booster diaphragm...the booster needs to be replaced. It's not a high failure item and can usually be located in most scrapyards.

BY THE SOUNDS OF IT ONE OF YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS HAS GONE BAD. WHAT I WOULD DO IS JACK UP THE FRONT END AND CHECK FOR PLAY IN THE WHEELS MOVE BACK AND FORTH TOP TO BOTTOM SIDE TO SIDE. CHANCES ARE YOU WILL FIND ONE OF THOSE WHEELS HAS ALOT OF PLAY IN IT. IF THAT IS THE CASE YOU WILL WANT TO REPLACE THE INNER AND OUTTER WHEEL BEARING AND THE WHEEL SEAL. TRY THAT GOOD LUCK AND HOPETHIS HELPED.

You must inspect ALL Brake lines, flexible and steel, and each corner brake. Look for fluid leaks. If everything below is okay, replace the M/C. I suspect damaged cup or bore. do not rebuild, get a new one. Unlikely too much vacuum.

not booster or master- you need to bleed brake fluid from each wheel cyclinder- you have an air bobble somewhere

How do I replace a brake booster on a 1998 Buick LeSabre? Brakes hold but make a whooshing when applied.


May not be the booster as some do make a noise when the brakes are applied. To test press the brakes several times with engine off, Press the pedal down hard and start the engine , the pedal should move down slightly and there should be no whooshing sound . if the above is ok so is the booster.

Hissing noise when i press the brakes sounds like air,but when i take my foot off the noise stops


sounds like its the power brake booster that is causing this noise. you don`t say what year make model of car. ford at one time had this problem but it did not affect braking. on other cars it was the vacume shut off switch for the cruise control at the brake pedal which indicated a bad switch and needs replacing.

How do you know that a brake booster is bad?


Booster problems are rare but they do go bad sometimes.
A bad booster generally causes the brake pedal to feel hard to push down, and a lot of pressure on the brake pedal is required to make the car stop.
Rarely, a vacuum brake booster will develop a vacuum leak, which can cause engine performance problems, hissing or whistling noise, as well as requiring increased pressure on the brake pedal to stop.

The first test:
With the vehicle parked, turned OFF, and the parking brake set, pump the brake pedal 5 to 6 times. If the pedal gets harder to push after several times, your booster is probably good.

The second test (To make sure):
After the test above, without making any changes, press and hold the brake pedal with light to moderate pressure.
Now with your foot still on the brake pedal, start the vehicle.
If the booster is good, you will feel the pedal go down when the engine starts.

Hope this helps!

Replace my rotors drums pads shoes on my 2002 Ford tauras.thinking wow this going to be like brakes on a new car. But was just the opposite.ive bledthe whole system a countless number of times because of...


I just had a simalar problem on a suzuki sidekick.. It turned out to be a bad piston seal inside the Master Cyl. I went through about a gallon of fluid before i took the master cyl apart.. because it was a "rebuilt" cylinder from a trusted brand name company.. So i called the rebuilding compang and they sent me one that they had checked.. It worked great and fixed the problem.. by the way did i mention that i had received 3 units from the parts store all with the same problem.. finally i took one apart and discovered the problem.

My car will start but I cannot move it into drive. When I push on the brakes to transition from Park to Drive the brakes make a hissing noise...


The hissing noise could be the power brake booster leaking vacuum. The inability to shift out of park is likely to be a bad SHIFTER INTERLOCK SWITCH attached to the brake pedal under the dash.

Your brake booster works off of engine vacuum. It's located behind the brake master cylinder. It may be the issue from what you describe.
