1984 Honda Accord Brake Problem

MY 1984 Honda Accord made a pop sound and now when I push the brakes 2 things happen, 1.) I have to press really hard to get the car to stop and 2.) it pulls so much power from the motor that the car dies.

Is this the brake booster or what I replaced the calipers and master cylinder already.

Well aside from the boosters you may also want to check the possitioning rotor and calipers. there is a possibility that something slipped, or leaked, check for brake fluids and try to trace where it is comming from.

the picture below shows how to disassemble the brakes of an Accord, the only special tool you will need is a ball joint fork to seperate the upper and lower ball joints. You have to remove the whole steering knuckle assembly to get to the bolts in back of the rotor and hub assembly.

If the pedal is very hard does our idle fell good or shaking (BAD IDLE) check the vacuum line that goes from brake booster to motor if the line is not disconnect that will be why you have to press very hard and car died vacuum leak if its not disconnect block that hose or squeeze it with pliers so vacuum dont go to booster if car run nice dont stall no more but our brake pedal still hard thats normal because you cut the vacuum from motor its our brake booster that broken the diapham inside got a hole in it that why our pedal is hard and engine stall check it out let me know pierre

    im very sorry to add that voodomax its not that easy to remove the rotor i guest you never did a complete brake job to remove the rotor you need to remove the wheel hub that go inside the wheel bearing the rotor is between the wheel hub and bearing if it would be a oil leak the brake pedal would go to the floor it would not be hard its the booster i dont like to act like that but customer need to know sorry expert pierre

Yes this sounds like the brake booster.Start the vehicle and set the emergency brake,for safety.Squat down so you can get close to the brake pedal and push it as hard as you can with your hand and listen for engine vacuum,a constant hissing noise or if engine dies. You can also start the engine and let idle for a few seconds then switch it off.Wait approx10 to 15 seconds and pull the vacuum check valve out of the booster and listem for vacuum to escape.If you hear no vacuum ,there is a hole in the diaphram in the booster.If it fails either test,replace it..Good Luck!! Dont forget to rate this answer..ThankYou and have a good day!!!

Hi............

On your problem with the HONDA..
You are right the Problem is the BRAKE BOOSTER.
But before replace Inspect the Vaccum hose coming from the Intake manifold, Check for proper vaccum,
If everything is ok.
JUst replace the BOOSTER And the car will be ok.
Because the Brake Booster is LEAKING vaccum air.
And the ENgine will come at high IDLE..
Is why the engine will Run and DIE.

DON'T drive the car until you fix. Because is Danger for not Brake response.

OK.. I hope this help to fix your Honda.
GUILL....

I just got a new used 1995 honda accord and already i'm really unhappy. The gears stick terribly and the breaks... you have to push down really hard and they don't break fast. What can i do about the gears...


the gears are sticking? is the shifter just really tight and hard to move from one gear to the next, or even just wiggle around in neutral? if so, you may need new bushings for it. which are not very expensive. IF the shifter wiggles around easily in neutral, but hangs in a gear when you press the clutch in all the way, you could need a clutch, OR hopefully you can just try bleeding the clutch line. at the master cylinder on the transmission. the breaks.... do you have to push the pedal down really hard, or really soft and far? if you're putting a lot of pressure on the pedal but you don't have to push the brake pedal all the way to the floor, that would indicate to me that your pads and rotors are glazed over. you should replace the rotors, pads and have the calipers checked, and have the brakes bled. if you've got to push the pedal all the way to the floor, there's a good chance all you'll need is to have the brakes bled.

When I drive my honda accord 1995 2.2l and I make a stop, the brake pedal starts loosing pressure and goes all the way to the button.or if the car is running I have to push the brake pedal more than 2...


first thing to check is your fluid level. ensure you have enough fluid in your master cylinder. it sounds like you have air in the system. its not really hard to bleed. just get a friend to come over and one of you climb under the car with a bucket and a wrench and some rags. open the bleeder valve on the calipers and have your buddy press the pedal. once oil shoots out straight from the valve close it while its still squirting. if the oil has alot of air in it have your buddy keep pumping to until its not. also make sure you watch your master cylinder level as you are just squirting it all out. do that to all the brakes. as far as it being the master cylinder thats a way later thing. you check the fluid level/air in lines first. as far as the abs. is your abs light on? problem with abs is that it requires specialized work so your best bet is taking it to a shop. but if there isnt air in the lines and there is plenty of fluid then start looking at your brake adjustment. if that is good then possibly the master or slave cylinder

Tail lights stay on until fuse is taken out brake lights work fine


It happened to me 2 weeks ago, check your brake pedal. there is what we call a pedal stopper (rubber) that pushes the stop light switch everytime you release the brake pedal, and that makes the brake lights shut off. your pedal stopper may be destroyed already. (it looks like a push pin)

hope it helps.

Is it the brake light or the tail light? Does it go out when you pull back on the brake pedal?
