To correct the leak, the sensor must be inspected, properly sealed and installed, or replaced with new.

2006 Acura RSX RecallsReduced Braking Performance
The braking system uses an assist device called a brake booster. These vehicles use a brake booster that is operated by engine vacuum and in certain cases the booster may not be able to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed. This will result in reduced braking assistance, requiring additional force on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the brake booster and replace it as necessary.
