1992 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
Driving the vehicle home one day I found that it was increasing harder to stop. I had to really apply a great deal of pedal pressure to get the van to stop. Since the problem I cleaned the driver side caliper bracket, (wire brushed clean) and replaced the pads. Verified caliper piston moved when depressing the brake. Passenger side cleaned mounts, replaced pads, and replaced caliper since I couldn't compress the cylinder into the caliper. After reassembling the breaks still tough to depress the brake pedal. I suspect the power assist is the problem. Is there a fuse for the pump that drives the power assist? Is there any way to narrow down the problem (i.E. Master cylinder assembly, power assist pump, cogged lines, etc).
Not sure how to proceed.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
