Check for a faulty booster check valve. it is on vacuum hose to booster. you should only be able to blow on only one side, if you can blow through both sides then it is bad. the check valve holds the vacuum in booster. if bad you will lose vacuum. The check valve keeps the vacuum in the booster from leaking back into the intake when engine vacuum drops because of high loads or when the engine dies.
The symptoms would be no power boost when you turn the engine off or when the engine dies. Step on the brake with the engine running and note pedal position. Turn off engine and step again and the position should be the same. If the pedal is hard and higher then the check valve or booster is bad. have a good day!!

Why does the brake peddel sometime goes hard?


Sounds like the engine vacuum drops, incase being a petrol engine. If it's a diesel, the vacuum pump might be worn out, and need to be replaced.

Break lights won't go off


Hi there?
The brake light switch is faulty or is NOT secured. When the brake pedal is released it pushes the pin on the brake switch to switch the lights off. If the pin is not getting pushed in proparly then the lights stay on. check the switch. Good luck................

Had a clogged brake line changed it bled system no peddel changed calopper still no peddel changed master cylinder got peddel then i start truck loose peddel changed master cylinder again and the same...


You have to have the engine running to bleed brakes

Your need a helper to push the pedal while you crack
open the bleeders

Have to do all 4 corners

Just not bleed,have air in system

Never needed all those parts & you didn't have
a clogged brake tube.

Soft break peddel


Sounds like you have a vacuum booster issue or a brake master cylinder going out. If you know of an independent mechanic the Vacuum Booster test is simple. It is recommended to replace both the booster and the master cylinder at the same time.

Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced.  It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store.  If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch.  Hope this helps!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

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.
