Question about Cars & Trucks
New brake lines, new brake fluid and brakes bled, but have no pressure when I press the brake pedal and I get this whooshing sound from under the dash around the brake pedal area, why? and how can I fix it?
You have a bad vacuum booster. The diaphragm in the booster is ruptured resulting in vacuum loss and no power assist to the brakes. Do not drive in this condition, loss of control (stopping) hazard exist.. Replace Power Brake Booster. Since replacement of the booster requires removal of the master cylinder, replace the master cylinder as well, It is old (2003) and time for replacement

Maybe the vacuum booster behind the master cylinder. is the vacuum hose hooked up to it?? it could be leaking internally. you need a vacuum pump to test it though.

Well, now being 60, might be a bit of a challange for me , but if I had to..... anyway dress comfortably, push the front seat back as far as you can. Now lay on your back looking up UNDER the L/S of the dash where you hear the noise and LOOK. for something loose. Open the hood, look for something loose under the L/S of the windhield. Nothing to lose. Hope this helps

You may need to do a code scan,this will reset the computer and reset any codes if the brake problem has been taken care of.Autozone Shucks/Kragen/O'Reilly's will do this for free.

When installing the trailer break controller, 4 things must be considered carefully and objectively . 1.Safety regarding the mounting of the controller with respect to the drivers ability to control the vehicle without any hindrance whatsoever . 2.The dirvers ease of access (and control) of the coltroller while actually driving.....not sitting in the driveway....and lastly.... 3. The expected and assured 100% faith in the controllers ability (by the driver) to function without failure (no exceptions allowed) AND as designed to function (not ***-u-med), by properly mounting the unit and performing the correct electrical aspects of the installation without "shortcutting or jerry rigging" (no exceptions allowed)
4. The trailer brakes themselves. Ie. Shoes, drums, actuators, mechanical and electrical components etc. And last.....but too often forgotten....axle bearings maintenance / checkups / and tires condition and proper air pressure attained with a reliable tire guage....Did I mention checking the trailer lights functions ??? Good Luck...Happy Safe Motoring..
