Question about Ford Bronco
I own 1996 ford bronco with a 5.8 . The brake pedal is extremely hard and you need to use both feet to stop the vehicle. Once stopped the pedal will not return and need to be pulled up.

SOURCE: 96 F350 Hard Brake Pedal
My '96 f350 7.3 did the same thing. It was working fine I drove to the store then came out and the brake was hard. Then it was fine then hard again......turned out to be my vacuum pump. $100 fix now it brakes fine.
Hope this helps!

You should have a hydraulic brake booster. a common failure item on fords and also would cause your symptom. the burning smell, I would go back and recheck all the brakes. Maybe a problem with the e-brakes, or an issue with the front or rear calipers. Possibly a damaged steel or high pressure brake line. Good luck.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)
