There are 2 things that can use vacuum near the brake pedal. If you have cruise control, there is a safety switch on the pedal to shut off the curise when you apply the brake. This switch may be leaking.
The other part is the brake booster, which is actually in the engine compartment but bolts to the firewall, and your brake pedal mechanism pushes into the booster. You will need to get your head under the dash with the engine running and press on the pedal to locate the leak--on the switch or on the wall.

Engin starts revs to 2500 then drops and dies, also brakes very difficult to come to a complete stop.


This sounds like a bad vacuum leak, the brake system uses vacuum to power the brakes, if theres not enough vacuum to brake booster then the pedal will be hard to push and stop the car, open the hood and start and listen for a hissing sound, follow vacuum leaks and look for broken or aff vacuum lines. hope this helps.

My brakes on my Mark 8 have become hard as the brake pedal takes longer to come to a stop and there is a hissing sound. I presume that is the master cylinder power assist..What would that cost to replace...

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

Brakes


Hissing or scratching sound is usually related to consumed brake pads/ shoes or deformed disks.
Usually you fix it by replacing brake pads, in some case you also need to change the disk, but this is less frequent, and happens when you keep circulating with consumed brake pads for many miles.
If you have a vehicle with brake shoes instead, you need to replace and calibrate brake shoes .
