I have a friend who has a 86 honda accord with just under 300,000 miles on it. It'* his only mode of transportation. He has 2 problems with it. One is that his brake pedal is really really really stiff... and when i put my hand on the brake buster when the brakes are applied it shakes and makes a clunking noise. I'm assuming this is either the booster or the master cylinder. What do you guys think.
Also this one is just weird. When you turn on the car it runs ok for about 30 secs. then the car starts to drop power then rev back up. It goes from about 2000rpm to 1000 rpms then revs up agian to 2000, then drops back fast to 1000. You get the point. I have no ideas on this on. As always thanks for the help. I would go to one of those other honda forums, but in my experience you guys know a lot more than them. Thanks again for the help.
1 It sounds like the brake booster is fried, so your brake system isn't getting the boost.....In the end means he only has manual brakes....Not power.
2 This one sounds like a leaky or broken vaccum line on the engine or carb some where....My frined had an '88 and it did the same thing.
Thanks for all the help. I had already told him to check the vaccume lines, so i hope he did that. I shall also inform him that he needs a brake booster, becuase when i drove it, it felt just like there were no power brakes... thanks agian.
