Brakes problem
1994 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 112000 miles

Break pedal hard (no assist at all). Engine runs fine, there was an issue with vacuum leaks but I think I have it solved. There is now vacuum at the booster. How much vacuum should be present at idle? Can the booster go bad from prolonged loss of vacuum to it? What should the vacuum system pressure be?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

Check that the vacuum check valve at the booster is not faulty, max idle vacuum is 21" mercury but often 18-19 is ok, I would be checking that there is vacuum at the check valve first.
