Ford E150 Brake Pedal Seizing When Pressing
Ok, so my brake pedal keeps sticking when I'm pressing it. I just spent
$2,600 in repairs in the last 3 weeks (all new brake lines, brake bleeders, U-
Joints, and an ignition coil replacement.) The mechanic thought that the
brakes sticking was due to the misfire from my bad ignition coil and that I
was losing my power assist.
I checked the hose to my brake booster (looks good.) I followed some brake
booster tests I saw on youtube and it seems to be functioning properly too.
The problem is I press the brake and it moves a little bit then it's like it gets
stuck. Not hard to press but impossible to press. If I let off of the brake and
press again it feels like it's breaking loose from something. I can also hear it
near my foot on the brake pedal.
My thoughts right now are maybe a bad piston in the master cylinder.
I've been trying to search for this but everything I can find on about pedals
sticking down and not coming up (which is not my problem) and brakes that
are hard to push. But mine is impossible to push, again it moves a little bit
then I feel it seize and it won't move at all. Almost like the bar my brake
pedal is pivoting on is getting stuck or something.
Bad brake booster? Master Cylinder?
Thanks for your input.
