1997 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200, 00 miles
I have the Grand AM SE model. I am having brake-fading all the way to the floor at stop signs, and lights, or just slowing down. I have no noise from the brakes, no warning lights, no apparent leaking from the brake fluid reservoir. I am able to eventually put it in Park to keep from rolling further. The ETS stays on all the time. I have taken it to two different chain brake-specialist stores and they both say my Master Cylinder is leaking and one of them said my Master Cylinder and ABS Module are an all-in-one unit, and it appears that way because I see no bolts holding them together but there are a couple rubber lines between them. I called a Pontiac dealer Service Manager and he said he hadn't heard of that before. I am afraid of driving it to too many repair places to get a third, and fourth opinion because of a possible accident. The brake-specialist stores say that my brakes appear to be ok. I have researched, online, the Master Cylinder for my car and saw no all-in-one units. Have you ever heard of this unit, and from the info I have mentioned, does it sound like it is the Master Cylinder that is the problem?
have the same problem?
