yes it could be. brake fluid will collect moisture over time and the whole system should be flushed. check the power booster for air leaks and all the rubber hoses, when they get old they can expand reducing pressure applied to the rotors and drums.jilly said:Ok, ya guys - I have a major problem.
I have a 93 mustange 5.O and a big problem braking. The car is with a brake specialist right now (been there for a week) and they can't figure it out.
The problem is the car won't stop when I put on the brakes - it slows and eventually stops but that's it.
They have replaced absolutely everything - calipers, master cylinder, brake pads - not once but 3 times.
They've replaced other things which noone has ever heard of having to replace - can't think of them off hand.
Has anyone ever had this problem? I was reading another post and someone suggested that the brake fluid be changed. Could it be as simple as that??
