I believe your thinking of the porportioning valve. This valve supplies equal brake pressure to all the brakes. This is to prevent pulling or one set of brakes from locking up.

i couldnt find a propotioning valve just the abs control module.
i had to beat the master cylinder loose to seperate it from the hydro booster due too corrosion. i wanted to test drive with one bolt holding together and loosin it up when brakes were applied a , to see if hydro was doing the appliction and went 20 miles and no problem. so ill try imn am and see when cold. maybe knocked something loose in hydro. maybe dirt in an oring or something.
thanks for replys.

I'm going to say either clogged vent port or improperly adjusted pedal pushrod. Have someone press the brake pedal while you look inside the master cylinder reservoir (not directly, if it has air in the system fluid can shoot out when the pedal is released). You should see a disturbance in the fluid as the pedal is pressed, if you don't it is probably one of those two problems.

thanks for the help
saw movement in fluid when pedal stepped on.
i loosened the master cylinder bolts and tried to remove the master cylinder
and due to steel on aluminum the master cylinder was stuck so i took a rubber hammer and banged it free then reassembed it , went for a ride and no problem now. 50 miles and counting. fingers crossed. i figure some dirt in o-rings in hydro or master cylinder got knocked loose. i drained power steering and replaced fluid so maybe we'll be good
THANKS agian for replys
