Having brake issues with my truck. (in Off-topic)
July 21 2005 11:46 AM EDT
All of the suddon I can push my break peddle to the floor with little effort. I do slow down, but there is no suddon stopping, so if a car was to pull out in front of me I have an issue.
The brake fluid is full, and there is no fluid on the front discs, no leaking under the vehicle. It seems to me that the rear brakes are engaging but the fronts never do. This was not an over time problem, it was a suddon one.

- Avoid any mountain roads
- Make sure your claxon is working properly
- Consider equipping an anchor

Id say its your master cylinder.

I just took it over to the shop, and they agree it is the Master Cylinder.
If it's not one thing it is many.
Don't buy an H2, I have more problems out of this...well I don't want to get fined for expressing my feelings towards it.

It should still be under warranty though right? If not, it's not too bad, its was a couple hundred bucks when it went out on my Acura.

Yes it is under warranty, and the dealership that does the warranty work is in another state.
So I can either pay for it myself and have it done today, or have it towed (which is bad for cars) to the dealership, get a loaner from them which will be some sub compact piece of crap, then have to drive back to pick up my truck and put needless miles on something that already has a resale value of toilet water.
Yes, I am irritated today.
Point of clarification: You drive the H2 and get your news from FOX?

Yes, not all H2 drivers are liberal ;)
There are those who will get this, and those who will not.

I guess I don't get it...I would guess more conservatives/Republicans drive the H2... But that's just me being a stereotypical Liberal.

Apply the computer method. If your brakes fail, just switch off your truck, restart, drive on and see if it happens again.
Chet, he was being sarcastic.
And doing it well! ^.~
