Sounds like your brake booster could be bad. It is the round fat disc shaped part behind the brake master cylinder against the firewall in front of the driver's seat in the engine compartment.

It wasn't clear from your listed problem, but if the car also pulls to one side or the other while you are braking, then the problem could be a seized front brake caliper.

Nspect brake pads if disc front, inside and outside pads both sides and rear lining condition both sides. Worn out pads and shoes heat up fast causing brake fade and become increasingly inefficeint as you approach a stop and apply more pressure.

  • before pulling wheels, do this isolation tes.
  • At about 5 miles per hour or less in a safe paved area, let go of stering wheel and brake hard.
  • to locate the more efficeint side. It will pull/steer in that direction then pay attention to the brake componants of the oposite side..
  • to test the reasr, at samt speed, let go of steering wheel and apply the parking brake gradually bring car to a stoppay attention to which way the vwhcle tens to go. the efficeint side will try to stop and the bad side wants to keep going, causing steer to side that is trying to stop.
  • Sticking or binding disc calipers or pistons will cause premature lining wear and brake overheating. The pressure hydraulicly appled will overcome a any piston (disc) resistence when being force out of it's bore. With the mileage indicated, A complete brake job is advise. If these are all drum brakes the wheel cylibers probably won't hold a cup seal for very long. I would bet they are already leaking. I recommend turning "resufacing" rotors if equiped and turning rear drums. Wheel cylyders aren't worth honining so if needed, just repace them. To complete and ensure a thorough job. Have the master cylynder remove and check for cup leakage where it bolts up to vacuum assidt. Replace if needed and have tech flush all old brake fluid through the sytem when bleeding. I believe in replacing all return springs and hardware and have caliper if equiped serviced replace o rings and libricating slides and guides. Sounds like alot, but most rear end collisions could be avoided with just one more foot of rfficiency. Sorry this was so long. Good luck, give yourself a brake from worry. Tire pressures also affect brake longivity and eficiency. Happy trails,Co 7196

In my toyota sr7 1993 3.0l pickup when i turn it on it wont shift from park to any other gear, do you have any idea why it would do this and a solution for it?


You have a problem with the shift inter lock when you put the key in the ignition and step on the brake pedal a signal is sent not only to the brake light but also to the shift interlock so the problem can reside in the brake pedal or the shift interlock itself step on the brake pedal see if you ahve brake light if you dont check the fuse for brake lights, for a 1993 there is the engine junction box in thhe engine comparartment and one under the dash also safely with ebrake on turn key on go to the brake pedal do you see the brake switch press it and have some one see if the gear will change.if it does replace the brake switch if it doesnt the shift interlock itself has to be addressedcansmo_134.gifcansmo_135.gif

I suggest replacing the master cylinder assuming that you bled the system properly. You sound competent so it seems likely that the seals in the MC might be failing. That being said the brake lines can hold a lot of air :)
