    Re: brake problems

    Describe "do not work". Is the pedal hard? Does it go to the floor? Are there any leaks? Is the reservoir full?

    reservoir is half full. filled it up, brakes work some what. stoped the car. hissing sound coming from under hood when applying brakes. looks like some kind of leak down front of the booster.
