Question about 2008 Ford F-350

Brake and gas peddle

Brake peddle goes lower than the gas peddle,and if you miss having your foot all the way on the break peddle you hit the gas which overpowers the breaking. I have had a few very close calls with this problem and am trying to find out if there is a solution (maybe a way for the break to be fully engaged before meeting the gas peddle).

    I thought this was a FORD site and two different Ford dealerships and they both said there is no adjustment. Sorry for taking up your time but that is not the solution.

Most brake systems are power assisted via vacuum from the engine. Your brake booster is what makes the "power assist" work. There are some specific times when you will feel your brake pedal "fade" to the floor and it is normal due to the cycle of the brake components operation.

    There is a sensor inside most brake reservoirs that activates the
    indicator light in your instrument cluster when the level is lower than
    it should be. As your brake pads wear down, the system requires more
    fluid so the level at the reservoir drops setting the light. Same thing
    if there is a leak. The fluid level drops and the light goes on. This
    brake fluid leak would most likely be combined with a spongy pedal or a
    pedal fade every time you step on the brakes. A leak would also almost
    always have a wet area around the leak. Sometimes the leak can be
    internal to a part of the car you cannot see

    One easy way to check most brake boosters and the brake system for
    leaks is to turn the vehicle off and pump the brake pedal. Every time
    you depress the pedal you should feel the pedal "height" come up and
    the pedal get harder. After a few firm pumps of the pedal, hold it
    down. Leave pressure on the pedal for 20 seconds or so. Does the pedal
    move slowly (or quickly) to the floor? If so then there is a leak
    somewhere in the system. Keeping pressure on the brake pedal, start the
    vehicle. Does the pedal no drop? It should. That is the power assisted
    vacuum kicking in as the engine starts to run.


    The bottom line is that we are talking about your brakes. Your life,
    your passengers lives and the lives of others on the road around you
    depends on that system working properly. If you have any doubts, or
    feel uncomfortable, take it in to have it looked at. Know specifically
    what it is doing so that you can have your repair facility look at what
    you are feeling and tell you if it is serious or not.

The cylinder drum or the piston drum for the brake which is often called a power brake piston assembly has gone bad that needs a replacement.

If it is an auto then it is possible it is idling to high and the trans is still engaged despite you foot being off the peddle. Try lowering the idol speed as a first resort.

The breaks on my 1993 cutless ciera have gotten spungy just in the last 24 hours. The system dosen't appear to be leaking. What's up?


Hello, I would check two things 1: jack the rear of ur car up and spin the tires if a light spin allows the wheel to spin several times your brakes will need adjusted up... Also a good time to see if there's any wetness inside the drum from a leaky wheel cylinder.... 2: some times a master cylnder can leak on the inside of the brake booster and u would not be able to see it with out pulling the master cylinder forward u will not need to disconnect the lines if u r gentle with it... I hope this helps you!!! Good luck!!!!

I'm getting a vibration from the brake peddle when pressed on


Hello

What you are feeling from the break pedal is that the rotors are warped a little bit. So, as the warped part of the rotor goes through the caliper its pushing the break pedal back in to your foot. Most break shops can turn your rotors for you ... the price of turning a rotor around me is about 15 dollars, plus the labor to take it off. 50 bucks should get your breaks nice and smooth again.

Hope this helps

2007 chevy malibu, when brake peddle is engaged the brake lights go out but you remove you foot from the brake peddle the break lights come on and stay on untill you touch the brake peddle again, I am...


That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.
