If you are putting fuel in the brake booster vacuum line then the problem is that there is no fuel being supplied to the injectors or the injectors are not being activated by the ECM
Get the fault codes read before sometjing like a backfire blows the booster off the car

99 Mazda Premacy automatic difficult to start and idles very rough (max 500/600rpm). Also brake pedal goes "hard" when at low revs (like braking unboosted) but returns to normal whilst driving or under...

industry standards for compression is no more than 10% between cylinders which makes the 90 lb/sq" should be 117 at worst.. If the head job was done properly then a replacement engine is indicated as there is a ring problem in the low cylinder. Rough idle is an indication of a vacuum leak and if the brake booster is not assisting I would be looking at a leaking hose connection between the manifold and the booster Idle rpm is around 900 for a mazda. Check for faulty pc valve allowing excessive air from the sump and not shutting off correctly.

Power brake booster

get a new one but perhaps this is not the problem brake boosters seldom go bad. press on brake pedal a couple times until firm. then start engine while holding brake pedal the pedal should move down towards floor upon start up. if this is not true then check to see if the air line from the manifold to brake booster is in good non cracked and make sure you are getting good manifold pressure as well. repair hose or manifold if your not getting good pressure then check booster again as described above

It's a vacuum issue. Check the brake booster check valve and grommet. Could be the brake booster itself or the line going to it as a starting point.

Power brakes aren't working. hissing noise when braake is stepped on.

Sounds like the vaccum hose is off to the brake booster. Check that its is right behind the brake fluid rev. were you put the fluid in for the brakes. If the line is fine it could also be the booster its self.

When i step on the brakes the engine idles fast, I think I need to replace my pb booster, is it a tough job?

it should when you push the brake pedal but only for a second or 2. if idles up and stays up then yes its bad, start,push pedal, and put ear under dash and you should hear it **** air. its not too bad, unbolt the master cylinder, has braided steel lines going to abs modulator, flop forward outa the way. undo vacume hose, then go under dash, take out rod to pedal pin, 4 nuts, and pull it out of the firewall. you do not need to bleed brakes if you do not undo a hydraulic line and be delicate with brake light switch on the pedal

93 lantis brake lights.

It could be the brake light switch that is bad. that is located under the dash behind the pedal, the pedal presses the switch and turns the brake lights on.
