Brakes not working

So I have been driving down the road in town and hit my brakes and it is all foot pressure to stop the truck then after about 5 seconds it bleeds down and my truck stops with ease. Sometimes the truck will have no issues with the brakes and others it will. My Emergency Brake light has been coming on alot and my brake fluid reservoir is full. This all started happening after a repair shop put a new water pump and radiator in my pickup but since they wont look at my brakes i wont pay them for the radiator that they busted so i dont know what is going on.. Thanks

Sounds exactly like the vac. pump. If you wanted to you could put a vac gauge inline with the booster. JJ

I am going to try to get away from work enough to come and hang out. I would be ashamed if I did not get buy there. Esp. since I only live about 3 miles from the park. LOL On second thought I WILL be there for sure. JJ

was it suckin HARD on your finger or ehh?

if you got a buddy with a PSD feel the suction on his and compare to yours. also use a LONG screwdriver and BE CAREFUL and listen to the pump while engine running and watch the pulley also. if bearing is going out too pulley will wobble.

DON'T FORGET TO PUT BOLTS BACK IN BEFORE YOU PRESS PULLEY ON NEW PUMP!!!!!!!!!
