    Loss of power Brake and No Boost

    I have a 2000 T/A with a Vortech V9 Gtrim..Today I go to crack it up and notice my brake pedal feels strange...While backing it up I had to apply gorilla strength while simply backing up the car.

    I took it out for a spin and could never get the power brake to engage.

    No boost and No power brake?? leake perhaps where I have my -T- for boost gauge? Would this be an ideal place to look ?

    Help.

    Definitely sounds like a vacuum leak. I would check the boost gauge, as well as the brake booster vacuum hose that runs from the rear of the manifold to the power booster check valve. There is also a small hose that runs from the rear of the manifold to control the HVAC system, if that blew off it could cause similar symptoms. Reach behind the manifold and see if you can feel both hoses and make sure they are connected. PCV system would also be another suspect place for a vacuum leak, follow the hose on the lower left side of the manifold, directly behind the throttle body and see if its cracked or disconnected somewhere.
