car   Power Assist Brake Vacuum problem of Honda Odyssey

The vehicle involved was a 2000 Honda Odyssey. This is a brand new minivan, purchased with only 9 miles in odometer. After a week of driving it, it began to feel like it need it more rev in order to pick-up speed, specially when driving in freeway conditions (traffic). The van did not downshift as expected for about 10 minutes, in order to gain speed, I had to press the accelerator until the engine reached 3k rpm, and even then the transmission noise continued. It is not a continuos occurance, it is doing it every four to five days. I took the van to the dealer where I bought the van and service inspected the vehicle through a computer, which detected nothing wrong with the van, although the service manager had noticed the problem. In the first instance I was given the van back without anything done to it, except for a transmission fluid flush. Five days latter, on April 17, 2000 the noise and train problem showed up again, this time more serious. I took the van to another dealer, and they performed a computer test that again showed nothing wrong with the vehicle, however the new service adviser did notice the problem when he took it for a test drive. Honda was contacted and the company adviced a complete replacement of the transmission. Being such a popular model the needed transmission is not available and according to Honda it will take up to 30 days to get a replacement , hopefully new. Another area of concern is the brake pedal, one can hear the booster when pressing the pedal and at times the brakes do not engage inmediatelly. So far service has not been able to look into the problem since the transmission matter is of more importance. I really appreciate this opportunity to inform your agency of the problems I have encounter. Sincerely, rene rodriguez. This power assist brake vacuum problem happened on Monday, April 10, 2000.

car   Power Assist Brake Vacuum problem of Mercury Mountaineer

Recently, the pcv valve in my 2002 Mercury Mountaineer had a leak (vacuum system leak). As the vehicle began to stall as a result of this leak, while traveling 55 mph, and decelerating towards a traffic light, I lost all function of my brakes. When I stepped hard on the brakes, there was no response. However, because I equated this to possibly being tied to the pcv valve, I stepped on the accelerator to increase airflow into the engine so that I would have brake function. This gave me brake function, temporarily. However, this move was very risky, as I was approaching cars in front of me and accelerating towards them instead of decelerating, just so I could slam on the brakes and have functioning brakes. There is an apparent link between the brakes and the vacuum system. . . Which poses a deadly situation. Had I not been aware of vacuum system issues and how to mitigate them, I would have plowed into the stopped vehicle in front of me with no brakes. This occurred in the evening. I had to use this method to complete the remainder of my trip to get home, accelerating every time I needed to use brakes, because the stalling vehicle every time had no brake function. This condition put me in a very bad situation, as I also had my 5 year old in the car with me. This system should be recalled as it is unsafe. Replacing the pcv valve corrected the problem. There is also no notice in the operating manual for this vehicle about this vacuum system problem, especially since the operating manual that came with this car is for a prototype software system, and doesn't even match my vehicle. I have complained to Mercury/Ford about this incorrect manual, but they did not offer to send me a new one, and simply took the information and didn't even respond to my concerns. This issue happened on Wednesday, May 20, 2009.

car   Power Assist Brake Vacuum problem of Toyota Sequoia

My wife and I got our 2002 Toyota Sequoia brand new in 2002. Just this past week, the vsc and abs light comes on. We took it to the local Toyota dealer and found not only do those lights need replacing but also the brake booster. Total cost about $1900. I've done research on this problem on the web and found on a website, tundrasolutions. Com, there were a number of people with the same problem. Anywhere from 50k to 80k miles on their 2002 Sequoia and the same problem happens. When we took it to Toyota, they said that was a very rare problem for a car with that mileage. Toyota, the manufacture, or the local dealer would not take any responsibility for the parts and that it wasn't faulty parts. We got it fixed today. The local dealer knocked off 25% of the price. We feel like this is a problem Toyota needs to pay in full. If this many are having this problem, then there's a problem. It was July 27, 2007 when this power assist brake vacuum issue happened.

car   Power Assist Brake Vacuum problem of Volkswagen Passat

The car was a 2002 Volkswagen Passat. In August of 2013, while backing out of a driveway, I experienced a total loss of braking. After examining the car, I discovered that the plenum that holds the battery and brake booster was nearly filled with rain water. It was necessary for me to remove one of the duck-billed drain plugs in the plenum as all were clogged with debris, preventing water from draining out. The flooded plenum appears to have resulted in water being drawn through the vacuum lines when attempting to brake. This, in turn, caused a significant amount of water to be drawn into the crankcase. Water was also drawn into the cylinders resulting in misfiring. After removing at least one drain plug in the plenum for proper drainage, and double flushing the contaminated oil in the crankcase, I experienced no further braking problems until freezing weather in November 2013. In November, while braking near the bottom of a hill, I again experienced a hard pedal with no depression and almost no braking ability, resulting in the car going into the intersection before fully stopping. The car was towed to the Volkswagen dealership for repair. Two weeks later, there was again the symptom of a hard pedal? with no depression and near loss of all braking. The car was again returned to the Volkswagen dealership for repair. This time, the vacuum booster, the vacuum pipes, and their related items were replaced. As noted in the dealership invoice, evidence of water was found in the replaced vacuum booster. The dealership acknowledged that the plenum had a significant high-water pollen line, indicating flooding of the plenum. It was believed by their service department staff that the brake failures in November and December 2013 were likely the result of residual water freezing in the vacuum booster, causing the booster to be inoperative. Also, the ignition coils were replaced. Updated 01/30/14 the consumer stated the insufficient fix during the 2008 campaign did not resolve the problem. It allowed for continued flooding of the plenum compartment and subsequent brake failures. Updated 02/19/14 updated 03/13/14 updated 05/12/14. This power assist brake vacuum problem happened on August 14, 2013.
