Check your vacuum booster control unit its on the fire wall in front of the steering wheel the master brake cylinder is mounted to it . Its vacuum opperated off the engine vacuum and is what gives you power brakes Look under it on the fire wall see if there is brake fluid on the wall also check the connection to the vacuum hose that comes from the intake manifold for leaks its a large hose 1/2 inside dia .It could also be leaking inturnaly witch it would be harded to tell but this is your problem you can pick one up at a junk yard for 20 dollars or so

How to replace a fuel pump on a 1984 chevy camaro with a 5.0 carbed engine

The only trick to this is that there is a bolt in the front of the engine block just in front of where the pump goes which you can remove, then install a longer bolt to press against the pump actuator rod to keep it from falling out when you remove the pump. If you don't do this you will need to remove the rod, use some hard grease on it and try to get it to stay in place while you mount the new pump which can be a real PITA. Be sure to cean the old gasket from the mounting area and use sealer on the new gasket. Use "line wrenches" on both sides of fuel line fittings to keep from rounding them off and mop up any fuel you spill. On some cars fuel will pour from tank when you remove that fuel line, so it helps to have a short piece of hose with a stopper in one end (I use an old bolt) to plug the line while you work. DO NOT WORK WITH A/C TROUBLE LAMP AROUND FUEL AND FUMES. Use a flashlight and be careful.

I have a 05 diesel excursion an lately it's real hard to get into reverse even thou you press on the brake as hard as you can plus the cruise seems to be sticking after you set it if you press on

Make sure the brake lights are coming on when this occurs,i think you may have a problem there based on the symptoms of the gear selector and the cruise control.

I have a 1984 camaro an when i apply presure to brake its real hard to push down

You lost the power booster. Look at master cylinder (where you put brake fluid in) and behind it is a large, black, round module. There should be a big vac hose going into rubber bung on it. See if hose came out of bung or came off motor connecting point, or hose shot. If hose still OK and you hear loud hissing when brake on - then booster failed inside. It is large rubber plate that wears out. Either way when the hose off, or hissing when brake on, engine will run bad from loss of vacuum.

My 1984 camaro z28 keeps flooding. when i turn off the ignition key, the fuel keeps pouring fuel into the carb.

possibly a malfunction in the computer that controls the 1984 camaros carb would close the carburetor completely, cutting off the fuel supply or leaving the carburetor completely open, flooding the engine and causing it to stall or flodding the engine at shut off
