It could be worn out brake pads or a small rock can sometimes get lodged into the brake mechanism. Try putting the car into reverse and tapping the brake repeatedly while the van moves. This will sometimes kick the rock out. Hope this helps!

You have a iar leak on the vacumn pipe which is most likely or the diaphragm inside the servo has split so ask a local mechanic for a opinion

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

I have to push the break peddle all the way to the flood and it's still hard to stop do I need break fluid or break pads??or something else? Please help ford taurus


I would start by checking brake fluid. However if it's that low, it's leaking somewhere and should be repaired. If the pads are due, you'll hear a squeel or if there really bad grinding.

check the vacuum line to the booster for leaks a loss of vacum will cause hard breaking listen closely for a hissing sound when aplying breaks if you hear this when breaks are hard to press you will probably need a new booster.

Brakes brake pedal is hard to push


Chk. to see if you got vacume to break booster, If there is than i would say the booster is bad. When you have to push hard on break peddel means either the booster is bad or there is no vacume to booster. I really don't understand the secound part of your question, Do you mean there are no bleeders on the rear breaks? or you can't get fluid to bleeders in the rear? If you can't get any fluid to the rear breaks, you could have a master cyl. problem too.

Brake light on, power brakes seem gone


Chk. for vacume to booster, or loss of vacume like a break in vacume hose, do you hear a hissing noise when you step on break peddel. If you don't hear anything chanses are its the booster. When peddel gets hard to push you either lost vacume or booster went bad.
