Question about Cars & Trucks
When driving home at highway speed my jetta will start slowing down with no pressing the brake pedal. have replaced the break booster and master cylinder and had the break fluid flushed. I'm at a loss trying to figure a solution. the rotors are extremely hot by the time I get home
They will get hot, which means your back brakes are binding up, so get those check out. at the same time check the pistons in the front wheels as well as they can seize to work.

SOURCE: Loss of brake pressure
you might check your brake fluid. if it looses preasure than regains it after a second it may be low on fluid allowing air to get into the lines. you might need to blled the breaks to get all the air out of the line. if you need instructions on how to do that let me know.

SOURCE: brake pedal dropping to floor
do u have the antilock brake bleeding tool? if not you will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, the ABS control valve must be electricaly held open to bleed the brakes there of course is a special tool for this.

Testimonial: "Thank You"
SOURCE: brake pedal has alot of
The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.
