If I recall the rules correctly:
- hard pedal = bad vacuum pump or vacuum leak
- soft pedal = air in lines, bad fluid, leak in brake lines, bad master cylinder
I've replaced the vac pump several (3,4,5 times?) in the 101k miles I've owned the truck. Would love to go to hydroboost brakes but no room in the budget right now...
