Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

The brake pedal will always be hard without engine running because there will be no vaccum in servo assy.

Have you had the battery checked and is the vehicle out of warranty.

Please keep me informed.

The brake pedal is never really hard to press. It's required to press to start the car
Chrysler Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 9 months ago

It is designed to be hard when engine not running , thats how we check if servo is working.

You hold your foot on the pedal and when engine started the pedal should drop slightly.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
