Answers :

Check the wheel cylinders they could be leaking.they are located on the back break drums.
The first think I would do is check to make sure you have enough brake fluid to operate the brake caliper. Should be a simple fluid check under your hood. If it is low, then your brakes will be spongy and the car will take much longer to stop. If problem persists definitely have a mechanic or the dealer check this out as it is very dangerous when you can't stop!

1) I replaced the brake shoes on my 2005 Escalade EXT. 2) I made sure the cable all slid in the covers, 3) I cleaned the mechanical actuator and applied new grease. 4) I adjusted the shoes so that they just drag after the drum is adjusted. I adjusted the equalizer for the twin rear cables. The pedal still goes to floor when applied and the brakes do not hold the vehicle.

Sounds like air in the fluid or low fluid level. Check the brake fluid level under the hood and make sure it's adequate. If not, top it off. If it is, have the brakes bled and the fluid topped off again, and you should be OK, as long as nothing wa ... 1999 Saturn SL

1990 Buick Century custom, 3.3 V6, 4 door automatic. I have replaced the linings, wheel cylinders, both rear drums on this vehicle. When the linings are tight to the drum the brakes seem to operate correctly. I have often experienced a "locking up" of the right rear brake. It seems as if the brake shoes become loose (out of adjustment).I have used the parking brake to try and "self adjust the rear linings as it is my understanding that this is how they work.Since I purchased the vehicle used I e

I just got my front brakes replaced on my 2000 Toyota Camry. It has less than 80,000 miles on it. The mechanic said that there had been only 1/32nd" left on the front, but the back brakes were fine.

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable.

I have a 2003 L200 sedan. I took my car to one mechanic to have the rear brakes fix. He only put on the brake shoes. When I got my car back, the brakes were very low and soft.

I just want to make sure I wasn't charge for something I don't have.

The ABS sounds like it is coming on frequently in our 1995 Astro. It comes on when slowing even from slow speeds right before it stops. It has gradually gotten worse till now it is not stopping well at all. We are currently replacing the adjuster on the rear drum brakes as well as the hardware kit on the rear wheels.
