my earlier post never made it, telling me that I was not a subscriber. This
might have to do with my 2 e-mail addresses: Christoph at Casati.org and
cjcasati at hotmail.com. PLease post this attempt, thank you very much:
On my 5000 CS TQ something odd happens with the brakes: Every once in a
while the brake pedal gets very hard and I have to really step into it to
get brake action. Pumping doesn't help, it feels like the brake boost is
gone. Someone told me that the power steering pump also supplies the brake
boost but my power steering stays active all the time (I think). I ordered
the bomb and will replace that regardless since the car is up there in miles
and has no known service history.
Could someone give me advice on what else to do? I am also losing Pentosin,
hopefully through the bomb that I am replacing that will be taken care of
but I have a feeling that that's not the cause for this intermittent brake
Thank you very much! BTW thanks to all your support as of this morning I
have a new heater core installed including a rebuilt blower motor!
