BRAKES

1999 Volvo S70 • 5 cylinder AWD •

The brake pedal on my S70Volvo is hard to push down and doesn't feel like they're going to stop the car. The fluid looks full. Any ideas?

Check the vacuum hose to the power brake booster. Pull it off while the engine is running. If there's lots of vacuum, (the engine might stall), replace the booster.
