I have a 1999 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 and it's makes a humming sounds from the front every time I try and put on breaks

Hi Kenneth:
If this problem has only started since the brakes were serviced, I would be suspicious that they may not have been bled. That would mean there may be air in some of the brake lines or cylinders. When you push on the brake pedal, does it feel "HARD" or "SPONGY" ? Spongy would make me more suspicious of air in the lines..

When I stomp on my brakes let's say in an emergency the pedal is very hard and the brakes don't realy work at all but if I use them normally they are perfect it's on a ford au xr6 ute

to test your brake assist is working. stop the motor. Press w few times the brakes, till the pedal feels sturdy. Then while pressing the pedal down firmly, start the engine. When you feel the pedal going down, like feeling "soft" you know the brake assist works. If nothing changes it is defect.

Car is hard to start and when starts chugs and brake becomes hard to push

Sounds like bad vacuumed leak because of brake being hard.check that the hose from power brake diapham on fire wall to intake manifold in on not got a hole in it and if it seems ok pull hose off brake unit and plug and start.good luck.if that solves it replace brake booster.

I stoped driving my car for about for one month and recently started again, but since i started i noticed there was a problem every time i braked the pedle jumps a little stearing pulls alittle to right...

run the car in reverse for about 100 yards with your left foot on the brake,then run the car in forwards gear also with your foot on the brake,then run upto 30 mph and brake hard,you are trying to derust the rotors.

Most likely the power booster conncted to the master cylinder (on firewall under hood directly in front of you) is faulty or there is a vacum leak in the hose going to it.

Grinding noise when braking hard + noise continues when i releese my foot off the outo pedle

maybe brakes are bad ,if not then you would have to replace pads and rotors to rid noise.always allow new brakes to break in,(no hardbraking or sudden stops or riding brakes for 100 miles or you may get more brake noise.
