Just as the title states. What broke on you today?

Brake pedal in my Tahoe decided to go all the way to the floor this morning on the way to work. No brakes FTW, No idea why as I'm sitting at my desk eating sun chips after using my e-brake to get to work.

That exact same thing (pedal to the floor) happened to my coworkers Yukon about 2 months ago. He steered it into the ditch to avoid hitting another car at the intersection, and totaled it into the embankment.

Sounds like my Nissan pickup today. Parked my truck on a hill. Pull the e-brake. And bam. starts rolling. luckily I had some wood blocks in the back and can leave it in gear haha.

I just got done removing the water pump/timing belt and all of those goodies from my CRV because the last owner did the belt (junk parts store piece) and didn't do the pump. I'll be working on that, then the oil pan leak from a local shop replacing the gasket and using RTV with it........wtf......
