Question about 1994 Ford Taurus
Hi, I have a 96 taurus and the brakes will fail occasionally. Sometimes the brakes feel fine with good pedal pressure then the next stop they'll go all the way to the floor. The next stop they're working again. I've checked the fluid and it's full. I'm thinking its the brake booster or a vacuum leak but i'm not sure. Any ideas??
Presuming you have NO leaks in the hydraulic system,it would be a bad brake master cylinder.What's happening is,the piston inside the master cylinder has rubber seals,and when the pedal goes to the floor,the master cylinder is leaking internally,past the rubber seals.If the brake booster was bad,the symptom would be an extrememly HARD,unresponsive,brake pedal,and the engine would idle terrible (vacuum leak).Good luck.
