That price is ridiculous. Have them scan for codes again and give you a list of the codes and what they mean, and the parts affected by the codes. If the brake booster is at fault, it is most certainly covered under the warranty, if your warranty has not expired. If this estimate and diagnosis was from a dealership, take your car to an independent garage and get a second opinion. As far as I can find out, there is no recall on the brake booster.

Why does the mass air flow code comes back after replacing the sensor?


Mass Air Flow sensor just measures incoming air flow at a predetermined rpm/load. The computer is saying the flow measurement is not correct. This can be caused by mechanical faults within the engine like a bad valve seat or timing chain but would generally be accompanied by backfires through the intake. Usually its caused by a vacume leak between the sensor and the intake valve,like the intake manifold,loose intake pipe clamps, broken vacume lines,a leaking vacume brake booster [it will hiss loud when you apply the brake],bad spark plugs/wires, a clogged catalytic converter, stuck open egr valve or pcv valve,bad oxygen sensor or even a very clogged air filter. I know there is a lot listed but the MAF or MAP sensors show general flow through the engine that can be affected by several things. A vacume tester from your local auto parts store is about 30bucks and usually has instructions how to test for vac. leaks within the engine also to determine a if thers is bad valve seat or clogged exhaust.

How do I fix a vacum leak on 2002 nissam sentra gxe


You have to find the leak and seal it up, hey. It may help to picture where vacuum originates in the engine: As the pistons move down in the cylinders they pull air in from the intake manifold. This creates a pressure drop in the intake, a vacuum that is maintained as the engine is running. New air that is pulled into the intake is measured by the Mass Air Flow sensor mounted in the big boot between the air filter and the intake. If extra air is pulled into the intake manifold from a vacuum leak, uncalibrated air, the computer can figure it out from the oxygen sensors reading in the exhaust-mixture is too lean, so the computer will try to compensate by delivering more fuel, but can't deliver enough, mix is still too lean, so computer sets a code for the vacuum leak.
The intake will have a few vacuum taps with hoses running to engine or car controls that require vacuum to operate. If one of the hoses comes off or has a leak, that is extra air into the intake. Your power brake booster has a large vacuum tap. That may be the problem. With the engine running, pull off that line and plug it, and see if engine speed changes. If the idle drops that may be your leak-a failed power brake booster.
If nothing yet, keep engine running and spray some starting fluid around the mounting area of the intake manifold (maybe the intake gasket has failed and sprung a leak) and listen for a change in engine pitch or speed. The fluid may get sucked into the intake and cause speed to change. If it does, you would need to remove the intake manifold and fit a new manifold gasket.
Also check the big boot from the air filter to the throttle body for tears or loose fit. Good luck, Rev!

Nissan d22 navara 06 no vacum to brake booster??


if you are sure you have no vacum at your brake booster it could possibly mean either you have a leaking vacum pipe or if you have a pump fitted then the fault is that. If you are not sure if you have vacum at the booster end than it could also be a booster fault. Check the pipe first at the booster end (engine running)

Brake booster appears not to be working properly. brakes work ok for 1 or 2 apps then pedal gets hard. cannot hear any vacume leaks. the car does have a vacume switch in the booster


the booster is the problem, or a hole or leak in vacuum line to booster check the check valve also ! from manifold. heres the symtoms of a bad brake booster. primary symtom is a hard pedal on application, to test booster. pump brakes several times with engine off. to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on brake pedal. you should feel the pedal fade away abit and then become firm. but not hard. if you feel nothing at pedal when engine starts, brake booster is not working! check the vacuum lines first!!

New rotors and calibers, with pads replaced and now every three to four days must add brake fluid and brakes work fine no sponge feeling.


Check for leaks around brake calipers or cylinders, check for leaks around brake master cylinder, may be leaking from master cylinder into brake booster, remove vacume line from booster and see if you can detect oil inside, if your adding oil to brakes every three to four days a leak should be easy to find.

Windstar 2000 no vac at the booster-have great vac at the carb. just have regular brakes , no power brakes. don't believe to have a leak or at least one that I can hear engine runs fine


Check vacum at brake booster if you have vacum there bad brake booster, if you don't follow vacum line check there, vacum line should go to intake, if you do have vacum replace vacum hose.
