Need Tech Advice for brakes on 4x4 Highrider
I posted this in the Sonoma section too.
I had stop real quick and hard from someone running a red light in my 94 Sonoma Highrider 4x4. So I stomped on the pedal real hard to stop and the very next time I had to stop, the pedal went to the floor and I had to pump the brakes to slow down and stop. They never recovered.
No leaks from the wheels cylinders, master cylinder, lines, or booster. No brake, SES or Anti-Lock lights are on.
In the off mode, I can pump the brake until the pedal is hard and it holds. Once the engine starts, bam, to the floor. So I replaed the MCylinder with the same results. I bleed the system from the LR -> RR -> LF -> RF, twice. Same results.
My next move is the booster but the symtoms don't act like a typical booster. I did notice a vacuum (hiss) sound (not a loud sound, but loud enough) in the cabin when I first press the on the brake pedal.
Is the booster the logical part to replace?
All answers welcome.

Check your flexible brake lines for any distortion or signs they may be ready to blow out.
