Correcting Brake fade

Post by dph03 »

Sometime back you all suggested I had Brake fade, my pedal goes limp. Especially when there is a lot of down hill use. Is there a fix? I have a 1982 Interstate and imagine the brake fluid is probably old. Should I try replacing the fluid? If so, is there a good how to on that subject?
