1996 993 "vaseline" in brake system question


Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 44000;

I am experiencing some of the same problems posted earlier with the brake pedal fade. The car is at the dealer now for the problem. The prior history of brake fluid changes is unknown, despite the proper stamps in the maintenance book. (Reason to doubt due to other services that don't appear to have been made. Disreputable former dealership.) The mechanic found the vaseline substance in the master cylinder. After flushing the system, he drove the car and the master cylinder is not working at all... the abs pump starts right away. Obviously not driveable.The plan is to start by changing the master cylinder, then test. If that does not work, they want to change the ABS control unit. $$$Do you agree with the plan? No way for me to get second opinions as the car cannot be driven. And this dealer is reputable.Any updates I should know about?Thanks.State/Province: AZBody Type: TargaTotal Mileage: 44000Car Use: Street use only
