problem #1

Jan 082003

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
While slowly pulling in to my parking spot at work, I applied the brakes to stop.to my amazment, the brake pedel was extreamly hard. I had approx. 2 seconds to react before I rolled into an exhuast fan attched to a building. After a few taps on the brake pedel it was still hard as steel.by this time I had impacted with the exhaust fan. The damage to my truck was bad enough, however this outcome could have been far more serious if a co-worker walking out of the door next to the exhaust fan was not as quick thinking as he was.
