If you are driving a 1992 Ford EXPLORER, or if you are planning to purchase one, then it is important that you review reported Service Brakes, Hydraulic Power Assist Vacuum Hoses, Lines, Piping, And Fittings problems and defects. Total reports: 1.
Engine Backfire Causes Sudden Loss Of Brakes. Seven Vacuum Hoses Tie Into The One Pipe And Then Into The Intake Manifold. Only The Brake Vacuum Assist Has A Clamp On The Hose. When The Engine Backfires Into The Intake Manifold, It Blew Off Three Of These Hoses Resulting In Inadequate Vacuum For The Power Assist Brakes. The Engine Funs Very Rough But Maybe It Will Smooth Out When Driven A Little. So, You Drive And Suddenly Find No Brakes. If You Are Lucky, You Have Time And Room Enough To Stop.
