Yo Pedro, you say that BOTH brake pedal AND brake pedals are hard to operate? If that is the case, I would suspect there is something wrong under the dashboard inside the vehicle. Can you get on your back and look up at the pedals as you operate them with your hands to see if something is rubbing or in the way?

If you don’t see anything, go out under the hood of the vehicle and have someone operate both pedals while you watch under the hood….is there something in the way??? Do you see anything loose under the hood……do you have a vacuum operated power brake booster, and if you do is the rubber vacuum hose plugged into the booster?

A hard brake pedal is usually do to a bad brake BOOSTER, but the booster does not control the gas pedal operation and I cant think of anything that would be affecting both pedals except something under the dashboard that is in the way….maybe the floormat???

Blessings,
