75 that doesnt want to stop..
hi everyone...got an issue with my v6 75. my brakes are attrocious lately, and its becoming hard to work out why they are so terrible. its kind of hard to explain what its doing, or not doing, but here goes.
it has a weird vague pedal, like a 'wooden ' feel to it, and just has no stopping power. its not like a typical master cyl failure, (theres no real dramatic pedal sinking, etc..), it just feels like it doesnt want to stop. they work reasonably sufficient on light stopping duties, but if you roll on more pedal pressure for harder braking, it doesnt seem to respond to the extra pedal pressure..and it just has a weird, awful feel to the pedal, (which kind of transfers through the whole car), and doesnt want to stop. ive had the front calipers apart, no sticky pistons, ive replaced the front brake hoses too, and the rear calipers i rebuilt maybe a few years ago??? No fluid loss anywhere either, it has decent pads in it, and has near new rotors on it..(it just doesnt seem like a friction material issue either), more like a booster problem (although it does appear to be working ok ), or a hydraulic problem of some sort...???? anyone struck this before?? any thoughts on this rather annoying problem would be much appreciated!!!
