Please someone help me with Hydroboost problem!!!
I just had the worst day ever! It's my birthday and I was supposed to be in out St Patricks day parade. Untill something happend to my brakes on the way there!!!
I Installed a hydroboost unit with braided lines and a NEW Tuff stuff pump. Everything worked fine until I backed out of my driveway, put it in drive and the brakes were locked up. Now every time I turn the wheel the petal goes down and the brakes lock up. I have to wait like 10 seconds before I can move again. The pump makes a whining sound and its hard to turn the wheel just standing still. Pressing on the brakes standing still the petal jumps up and down.
Could the pump have gone bad? Or is there something wrong with the hydroboost?
I'm going to get a 6 an fitting and bypass the brakes first and see if the pump stops whining.
(UPDATE) I bypassed the Hydroboost unit and the whining stopped. Looks like it may be the brake unit????
