At 125,000-150,000 miles, the Brake Master Cylinder may need replacing. It is critical to adjust the brake pedal to Master Cylinder pushrod clearance or the brakes can drag and over heat.

    Sometime the brake pedal would slowly go down when stopping, with a loss of braking power. This problem would come and go, with months in between occurrences. Pumping the brake would increase braking power.
