Brake pedal goes all the way down, however it still brakes B12
1991 B12 Sentra ('87 equivalent to the U.S. I believe, carburated E16S)
Ok here is the situation:
I press on the brake pedal, it brakes fine for about 1 second, and then the pedal goes all the way down, but I can still brake, an observation I made is that if I press hard when the pedal is all the way down, the right front wheel will lock up.
Letting go off the pedal makes and pressing again restores the pressure which is lost again almost inmediately.
My mechanic told me it was "The pump" (I live in mexico, and he just tells me I need a new "bomba" which is a pump) but I fail to see where the hell does my braking system have a pump!
I have a service manual, and the closest to a pump is a valve that goes from the master cylinder to the intake manifold and I checked it and it works fine. What else could be wrong?
My nickname has nothing to do with the italian accesory company of the same name.
