Brakes problem
2007 Suzuki Esteem 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 16000 miles

my car's vacuum pressure leaks out when it is parked in stopped engine position. Resulting leaking vacuum, brake paddle goes hard. Brakes cannot stop car without putting extra pressure by my foot. On starting engine it starts working normally.

1 should I keep my car driving in this position?
2 what you suggest I do?

Hi there,

Do not drive with the brakes like this as it is very dangerous, I would be checking that the Vacuum check valve at the booster in let is ok, and then have the booster check for vacuum leaks, start here.

Your safety is in danger do not drive the vehicle. The brake booster could be leaking or also the hose to it
