    I just had a brake job but the pedal seems to go all the way down to the floor. The technician said he was unable to get a code to display for the problem

    I also have a 07 sport trac with pedal fade that has been in twice to the dealer. They bled the lines according to on tsb and then later replaced the pedal assembly according to the next tsb. It seemed a little better for awhile and now is back to fading to the flooe at stop lights with moderate pressure. I have not been back to the dealer because of no faith. I mentioned that it could be the master cylinder on the first visit and they said that there were no tsb's for that, only bleeding the lines and replacing the pedal.

Sounds like ether you have air in the break line or master cylinder is not working right. see if there is a vacuum line that ma have come off the master cylinder.

What could be problem if my 1994 1500 suburban brakes are locking on a sudden stop.

If the vehicle does not have ABS brakes, The wheels will lock on a hard/panic stop. This is why ABS was developed so the operator can maintain some control during hard/panic stops

My 2005 gmc envoy is vibrating only when my foot is on brake or when I stop

If you are not a heavy footed braker... then you have an ABS module problem. There are several sites on line that will do an exchange for a rebuilt one for around $100. If you are a heavy footed braker, your car is behaving normally, Just don't press so aggressively and the vibration won't happen. ABS brakes are supposed to shudder and vibrate when activated, they apply pressure to your brake calipers at roughly 15,000 times a sec, off and on to prevent the brakes from locking up and the car loosing control. In a panic stop, press a car with ABS brakes ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR as hard as you can, use the steering wheel for leverage and push the pedal down a bit more, RIGHT BEFORE IT COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP.

Slow drag starts, stalling and surging when at a stop

you could have a brake booster issue. you can do a simple test on another car by leaving the engine off and press the brake repeatedly 3 or four times will use up the vacuum in the brake booster. Once you have done this does it feel like the brake pedal in your van?

Excessive brake pedal travel and 'soft' brakes
