    P38 Brake Problem

    Hello everyone

    I apologies if this sort of thread has been made before.

    I have a 2001 Range Rover with pretty mushy breaks. The other day I decided to take the front tires of to check the pads. When I did, they all still had plenty of padding left. So then I checked the back, and it was the same. I checked the brake fluid and it was right in between the MAX and MIN. line. I am a little confused on what is happening. Help?


    Thanks in advance,

    Best Regards,
    Pulaski

    SOunds like your accumulator may be failing. do you hear or feel the brake pump running almost every time you step on the brake pedal?

    Problem solved! I let the vehicle sit for about a week or so, and after that the brakes were way better. Thanks for the help.
