Ride: Falcon EBII Gli 5 Speed

Location: Newcastle

Hi, I recently got a new clutch installed into my eb2 falcon and ever since i have got it back, the brake pedal feels stiffer and less responsive. Also recently sometimes the car wont start and the brake fail light flashes on as if the computer isnt letting the car start. This problem goes away after pumpin the brake a bit. I have checked the brake fluid and all seems fine there, what could be the go?

Thanks

Pump the brake till it's really firm without the engine running. Put your foot hard on teh brake without the engine running. Then, with your foot on teh brake, start the car.

The brake pedal should go down another inch or so just after the car starts. If nothing happens, you've got a torn diaphram in your brake booster.... either that or the vacuum connection to your booster is disconnected/leaking.
