It sounds as though the diaphragm on your vacuum assist has ruptured. This will cause a hissing sound and less brake you may also notice a change in the engine idle speed or a rough idle until the hissing stops.

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and recently replaced the rear break pads. I've noticed that randomly; while, driving and pressing on the break petal, it sinks in slowly. What can I do to fix the problem?...


Check to make sure that you put brake grease on the back of the pad where it meets the caliper. Also, for the brake petal slowly sinking, this is most likely caused from air in the brake line. Make sure you bleed the brake lines and check for any possible leaks.

It's the break switch under the break petal there should be two. The one that the break petal rest on it more than likely it it's maybe 10$-25$ to fix it

if you look above the break petal under the dash you will see a little switch attached to the petal. on most cars the switch is adjustable by pulling the pin out of the switch a bit and then putting it back in and pressing the break petal to re calibrate it. if that dosent work it may just be broken and needs replacement. also look around the break petal area under the dash and make sure nothing is keeping the petal from coming all the way back up

Once in a while the brake pedal will be low, normally after a 15 -20 highway ride! Seen when your usually getting of the highway!! This was first seen two month ago. Then after changing master cylinder I...


well all clues lead to the master but if you replaced it then that opens another can of worms...

when you push on your break petal a series of evens happen

the break boost assistants you in pressing the petal
the master cylinder plunger forces fluid around the break system and to each caliper/drum

you have to see if you got a re manufactured master ore a brand new one.. the problem sounds like the plunger in the master is allowiungnfluid to go past it.. faulty master,,,

the vibration in the break petal can only be 2 things...

warped rotors causing the caliper to osculate.. or theirs a steering component going bad

have a safty check done on your front end

Front brakes feel mushy after being replaced


You have air in your break lines. The two ways you can solve this problem is have the breaks blead to get the air out of the lines, or you can take the top of the break reservoir and pump your breaks to the floor. DONOT DO THIS With the car moving. What this will do is force the air to the reservoir.

I HAVE A 1998 dodge ram 318 1500 two wheel drive the abs and brake light come on but it brakes fine when the brake light and abs light go out i have to really push the pedal down to stop the petal feels...


you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps

if you have not fitted brake pads to it [as these can take time to bed in ] and give the pedal a soft and extra travel feeeling you have air in the brake system the simple check to do is look behind all your wheels see if you can see brake fluid sepping down the back plates or any damp patchs which would inply there is a problem if not pick your bonnet up have a look around your master cylinder to see if theres any sign of a leak that was the easy bit if you can,t see anything you will have to take the wheels off to find out what is leaking don,t forget if you change one of the seals or calipers or cylinders on that axle change the other side yates210456

Most likely your vacumn power brake booster has failed. It is not rebuildable. You will need to buy a new one.
