Question about 1997 Ford Contour
We were driving on the highway and heard a metal ping sound. The emergancy brake light came on. The car stops, but the petal is harder to push and has to be all the way to the floor to stop. No sweaking or squealing when stopping. Not shaking like a caliper is stuck. Power booster went or what?
Chk. for vacume to booster, or loss of vacume like a break in vacume hose, do you hear a hissing noise when you step on break peddel. If you don't hear anything chanses are its the booster. When peddel gets hard to push you either lost vacume or booster went bad.
