GTV TS Brake Problem
I have just bought a 1998 GTV TS which has been lying up for a while but seems basic ally sound. Some history suggests the 75k may well be correct. Strange problem with brakes-after about 3 miles of driving brakes begin to bind and gets progressively worse-seems to be all the brakes and pedal gets hard. When left for a while seems ok again. I checked all the calipers/pistions and when cold they seemed free. However is losing fluid but no sign of leak. Some white smoke on start up but no evidence of head gasket problem-doesnt overheat- makes me wonder if this is servo fault and fluid going into engine? When cold basic servo test suggests its working OK and ABS seems to work ok and ABS light goes out. It seems that getting at the servo is quite a job so I want to rule out other potential faults before embarking on this.
