View Full Version : Braking question!

I have a braking question. Ok well this usually happens in the morning when I’m taking off for school. After the car is wormed up I would start driving to school and when I apply the foot brake, it started to brake on the bottom of the floor. My brake is parallel to my accelerator, and its usually all the way on the top. I didn’t see any liquid under the car, so I don’t think that I’m loosing brake oil. What’s going on? Is it that my brake booster is going out? After a few minutes of driving its fine, its returns normal then.

Thanks Ado.

Its not your brake booster, it sounds more like the master cylinder going out. If you change it out, go with a bigger bore master cylinder for better stopping power than stock. I did this to my V Dub, its a way cheaper brake mod than a big brake kit. Also, if you change it out, you must do a thorough brake flush afterwards.
