When doing brake check air is rushing out of a diaphram on the firewall behind washer fluid resevior


Sounds like the vacuum booster is leaking (it's that large round canister behind your brake master). You will have to locate the source of the leak; if it is the vacuum booster you will have to replace it. Do the brakes feel like they're not working? That you have to press on the pedal really hard to stop?

My brakes are not stopping and they sound like air when pressing on them. I got new front brakes pads 4 months ago. The scary thing is that the brakes would not stop when I was driving down a hill. What...


check your brake booster vacuum hose and check valve for leaks,if no leaks could be bad brake booster if pedal is hard when pressed with engine running.

Soft pedal almost goes to floor


If you mean your brake pedal than you have air in the lines either your brake fluid is really low or work was done on the brake system and air was able to get in. also check all the lines and make sure there is not a leak somewhere this would also allow air into the system. You will need to bleed the brakes to remove the air once you have determined that the system is leak free.

No braking assist, rushing sound (air escaping)wheng brake pedal applied.


HI this sounds like the vacuum booster has a leak in the diaphragm. That is why you hear that sound when you push on the brake pedal. With out the vacuum to help this leaves you with a very stiff brake pedal. You will need to replace the Booster which is located behind the brake master cylinder and on the firewall. Good luck

Why do i hear air when i press the brake pedal


well, you don't really hear air when you press the brake pedal. You might hear hydraulic fluid going through the valves in the master cylinder, that sounds like air flowing through a vent. But, I assure you, it is not air.

One can press and pump on the pedal when the car is off and hear the 'rush' of fluid which sounds kind of like air rushing out of an inner tube.

It's a common mistake to believe a rush of air is being heard when pushing on the brake pedal.

No brake fluid flow to right rear brake


the stratus is know for clasped rear brake hoses .This stops the flow off brake fluid. try opening the brake lines at the master cylinder that go to the rear.pump up brakes first! if you got fluid than check the brake line if this is rear disc brakes on the line at the rear will be a built in proportioning valve.if drum loosen rubber hose line before the rubber part to see if you have fluid. If you do replace the brake hose! On you 74 challenger by the way i love dodge! any way on the valve there is a small button on the front of the proportioning valve that pops out it needs to be tap in lightly. also hit the brake peddel kind of hard a couple off times if that doesn't work. thanks for your question


p.s that hex bar on the is a junction not a proportioning valve .
