    P1780 is related to a fault with your O/D switch; P0455 is an evaporative emission system leak (like - make sure your gas cap is secured). Neither concern really apply to your symptoms.

    I would concentrate my diagnosis on your brake system. Your master cylinder could be suspect. Have your hydraulic and power assist brake systems checked immediately by a professional who can really drill into what's going on with your truck and keep you from having a serious safety issue.

    it acts like a vacuum modulator ,but I don't see one is this vehicle supposed to be equipped with one. I checked the brake master and the vacuum booster both are performing correctly
