possible contamination in brk fluid or hydraboost could be going bad, i had that issue on a ford f350 diesel

so maybe because of the rust in brake line issue, it's blocking some port?might have to flush brake lines out? how would you test the hydraboost?

its very diff. to do most likely the valving is going bad internally,flush the brk sysyem completely with alot of new fluid 1st and see if that helps.don't forget to flush master cyl really good
