Hi guys. I am a new owner of a 97 E350 Van with 7.3TD and 36K miles (orginal pump). I have read posts in the archives about loosing their brakes and almost wrecking because of a bad vacuum pump. Is there a way to tell when it is starting to fail? The reason I am asking is I live in a very hilly area and I don't want to lose my brakes completely especially if I am driving down the mountain as I don't think the E-brake could stop the car fast enough. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
