Having problems with your 2006 Hyundai Sonata ?

Front brakes feel mushy after being replaced

\015 Well my 2006 sonata had a bit of a shake when braking with the original brake pads about 60,000 miles old. So I had the front rotors resurfaced, and replaced the brake pads as you would with any other car. Now the car brake petal feels mushy and sometimes it feels like the the petal sinks to the floor. The brakes work fine except for the fact that the petal does not feel like it did before, it actually got worse in my opinion. Please let me know if there is a trick or if I am going crazy. Thanks : )\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

You have air in your break lines. The two ways you can solve this problem is have the breaks blead to get the air out of the lines, or you can take the top of the break reservoir and pump your breaks to the floor. DONOT DO THIS With the car moving. What this will do is force the air to the reservoir.

How can I diagnose a clunking noise in the front end of my car? It's a 13-year-old Lexus GS400. Sometimes there's a light clunk associated with braking. Other times there's a similar clunk when rolling at low speed but not braking. It could be two different noises from two different sources, but they are similar. The car feels and sounds solid going over bumps and small potholes, and the steering feels secure. The control arms were replaced with new bushings about a year ago. I'm hoping you can

After wearing the brake pads to much, after removing the front driver brake caliper and old brake pads the caliper piston had come all the way out destroying the dust boot. I used the caliper repair kit and replaced the boot and o-ring. After re-assembling the caliper with new pads and bleeding the system of air the brake pedal feels solid then will lose pressure and drop to the floor. While driving pressure builds but will drop to almost nil when applying brakes.
