bd8134 Brakes are not something to take chances on, get them looked at before to need to stop in a hurry.

amc49 Looking at weather there it could be water pulled in by brake fluid freezing in there somewhere. Regardless, once hydraulic system quits partially the next stop may be the one with zero brakes at all. This site is aimed toward DIYers, but people, lots of time you have no dickering around time with brakes and going past that can often change your future and not to the good side. Far better to get knowledgeable people to fix that and RIGHT NOW rather than end up on the evening news......

sleepyboy There is a loss of pressure or power assist going on which needs attention asap.

Hmm... I don't think its a sticking caliper because even then you'll be able to break decently. I second that you should take it to mechanic ASAP!

This, it's clear your having a major problem and needs attention ASAP before you wreck into someone from not being able to stop.

Problem with my brakes

So I jumped in my car yesterday to head to work and I noticed that my brakes were really weak, I had pressure in my brake pedal but it was not stopping me at all. I pumped it slowly a few times and the brakes came back to life. It did this to me again when I went to lunch and when I drove home at the end of the day. I looked at the brake fluid reservoir and it is still full, maybe a little too full, so I don't think I have a leak in my brake lines. Then this morning when I was driving to work again I had to brake hard and I could feel a bit of a oscillation in pedal. If anyone has any insight or has experienced this problem before, please help!
