Is my brake booster bad? (I think) Sign In

Hey guys, I am new to the forums and this is my first post, hoping to receive some help and find out whats wrong with my brakes and any other future issues I may have haha.

I have a 2006 Dodge Dakota 3.7L V6 with 152k miles on it.

I have noticed a noise when I press my brake pedal and it only happens now and then but recently I hear it more frequently. The link below is the video I took, if you can get any information from that. Its almost as if air is leaking from the brake booster, but I am not 100% sure how brake boosters work, so any insight would be awesome. Thank you in advance!

Not typical to me. Try this: Shut car off so there's no more added vacuum to booster from engine and see if the booster works (softer feel) than gets firm when vacuum is exhausted. Now does it make noise or did it when you did that test? That will help the noise to me was more of squeak than a leak of vacuum any always difficult unless right there. See what it does and let's narrow it down,

Are you taking about the whine or the clicking noise.

HT - my hearing was like you said. To me the wild maybe is more likely some mechanical something where pedal pivots. Best I can do like another thread and noise today these are always best witnessed in person by a profession and experienced tech. Still important NOT to ignore noises that are not explained and verified then fixed in a vehicle,

No it only makes the noise when the truck is on. But the noise doesnt start right away as soon as I turn it on. Only after driving a little while.

Yes, that noise sounds like it is coming from the booster but won't necessarily have any effect on the brakes.
