confused Break Issues

Is anybody aware of any break issues with the EB series Falcon/Fairmonts? I own a EBII Fairmont and it's a great car except for a break problem. Every 4 months or so the car just seems to surge forward and the break pedal becomes stiff. There is a also noice from the left side where the abs unit is. i had it checked and they can't find a thing wrong with it. I have had the break booster replaced, but the problem is still there.

Re: Break Issues

Hi Jay
What you're describing sounds more like a vacuum leak than a brake issue. This would explain why the car surges forward, because the PCM will try to increase the engine RPM to try to compensate for the vacuum loss. This leak will also cause the brake pedal to become hard and the climate control unit to revert to the windscreen position, regardless of the actual position you have selected (face/feet/etc). The noise you hear from the left, if it's a hiss, could tell you where the actual leak is coming from. Hope this helps, cheers
