Re: Brakes hard to engage
First thing that comes to mind is a vacuum leak, but does it happen only in the morning?
If it was a small leak, the pedal should be normal (soft) immediately after starting the engine. The pedal should only be hard after the engine is off for a while.
With a big leak, it would take some time for the pedal to feel normal but it would feel hard again every time you restart the engine.
If that makes sense, check you vacuum lines. Check also the vacuum valve attached to the brake booster.
