Hi, got a bit of a problem in the mornings. Some mornings, but not all, the brake pedal is rock hard, usually it eases off within a few seconds and all is normal, but if it is colder it takes longer to start working. Yesterday it was a bit nippy and I ended up going about a mile before it sorted itself out. My mechanic friend thinks it may be the ABS system but I thought I'd ask here before trying anything else. It's a 54 2litre diesel. If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful, thanks.

Brake servo maybe ?

"Understeer" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"Oversteer" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"Horsepower" is how fast you hit the fence.
"Torque" is how far you take the fence with you.

I'm fairly sure the servo is OK, I've done the checks and it seems to work well.
