Customer Question
My 1994 Monterey has...

My 1994 Monterey has brake problems. The brakes are getting no power from the booster which has been replaced twice. The lines are clear, master cylinder is okay. My mechanic has given up after months of going through everything he can think of.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistant

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Monterey yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had it to my regular mechanic who has been caring for it for years. This has him stumped. 2 power boosters, clear brake lines...she will stop, but with heavy foot power.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My guy says he has talked to others and there may be a part or tool (?) that could solve the problem. She runs too good for me to give up on her.

Does yours use a vacuum booster?

Rats, I don't know. Guess I should have brought the manual in before I started this.

Can you send me a picture of the booster?
