Have a 1979 international dump/ scissor lift truck with regular brakes not air brakes, the problem is that when I get on and press the brake the pedal goes all the way down but only one the first pump the second time it grabs and the pedal stays up and if you stop pressing it it'll do it all over again we've changed the brake booster, master cylinder and bleed it lots of times but still has the same problem! Can anyone give me some other ideas as to what ells to do? Thanks

I had my wheel bearings replaced 2 days ago. After getting the car back, the brake pedal seemed too easy to press. Then the following day, I could hardly press it in at all. It felt as though the brakes were constantly grabbing. Then it stopped. Today, it happened again. I called my father, he asked if I could drive in reverse, and I couldn't. Then, again, the brakes seemed to release after a while. I have an SL1.
It sounds like the brake calipers are not releasing properly, no matter what that is a safety concern and you should have the car taken back to whomever worked on the bearings-the way to check it is to jack the car up and turn the wheels by hand (car ... 2002 Saturn S-Series
I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and after bleeding the brakes (after doing some brake work) we can't seem to get the peddle to stay hard. When taking it out for a drive the first time you press on the brakes the peddle goes way down (will stop but peddle moves farther then it should) and fist time putting pressure on the brakes the peddle will be harder... until your next stop.. first time applying pressure peddle goes way down... release and press again and it is much better. Is there someth
Bleed them again, and don't leave the bleeder open, every time the person lets up on the pedal. close on the way down and open and close next time etc. Your letting air back into the system. Don't let the master run dry. ... Dodge Durango
Pulling up to a stop light the brakes start to grab really bad. Just before stopping they seem to lock up. Have to give the van extra gas to get the van moving again. The right brake seems to be the worst with some grinding noise after getting started again. The brake pads were replaced three months ago. 1998 Plymouth Voyager
Sounds to me like you might have a bad proportioning valve.I would try front first then back. Jack the front tire up off the ground. pump your breaks a few times and get out and see if your wheel spin free. If it dont spin loosen your bleeder screw ... Plymouth Voyager

ABS PROBLEM? It happens maybe once in a 12 month spam, it lasts inconsistently, (at the longest), for about a day and 1/2?. My ABS brake light appears and I get a less than full performance from the brakes. It feels just slightly less than 100% when I first apply the brakes and when I get just about stopped, it feels, (in the peddle), like it slips into a groove, slows more and then a slight feeling of?,,? grabbing,? or jumping,?,.. like the pads are down to nothin? and the attachment rivets, (o

Put my foot on the brake it starts again. put thr car in reverse no problem put it in,drive it starts back up constantly. I have noticed that the noise is worst when not not moving in,drive. Like when stopped at a light...get up to speed around town bout 30 it stops but as soon as I hit the gas or the brake it starts again. But if im at a light and put in park as long as im not pressing the b

I have a 2005 Mazda 6. If I take my car on the freeway for more than 15-20 miles with out stopping it will start to **** and feel like its going to die.i have to press the gas a little harder to make it feel like it wants to go again. Now when I get off the freeway and have to stop, my car won't stop. I'll slow down and my breaks feel really stiff but last time I had to pull the E-brake so I wouldn't hit anyone. Once I put it into park the brake pedal will become soft and go all the way down. Bu

My brakes are not stopping and they sound like air when pressing on them. I got new front brakes pads 4 months ago. The scary thing is that the brakes would not stop when I was driving down a hill. What could be wrong? my car is a 1995 Dodge Intrepid with a 3.5 engine

Brake pressure lost all pressure when press on brakes, have to tap the brakes to stop, nothing is leaking when I look, please help? I have the same problem but have checked the brake fluid and it seems to be holding in the system, but I still get no brake pressure. No evidence of it leaking anywhere either. The brakes need to be replaced, I know that...could worn brakes cause a loss of pressure somehow?
Yes, when your brakes are worn the extra heat can boil your brake fluid and put ait and moisture into the system, which will give you no or a soft pedal. you need to replace the worn brake pads and rotors, flush and bleed the brake system- you should ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
My 1997 Honda Accord makes a grinding noise when in motion. When I press on the brakes it stops, when I release the brakes it starts again.

How much do you think it will cost?

Cranking the car I have to press the gas for it to start. In addition, once it is cranked I have to keep the gas pedal pressed sightly to keep the engine running. To be able to drive it I have to use both feet, one for gas and one for brake. Once I am going down the road and make a stop (red light or stop sign), it gets suggish but does not die. Only when I put the car back in park and kill the engine and try to crank the engine, will it start the dying when cranked.

I have a 1987 Buick Century. The hazards flash like they should except when the brake pedal is pressed, the hazards stop flashing. Is there a way to get the hazards to flash while the brake pedal is pressed.

While driving my 1994 Honda Accord the brakes went out. I can only get the car to stop if I press the brake pedal all the way down to the floor. When the car is shut off and I pump the brake pedal, I can still push the brake pedal down to the floor with no build up in pressure. The brake fluid in the reservoir is below the minimum mark but I dont see any fluid leaking onto the pavement. I had new pads/rotors installed about 1000 miles ago and the brakes were working fine after that.
There may be air in the lines. Bleed all your brakes starting at the farthest wheel from the resevoir, and finishing at the closest one. Try the pedal after its bled. If the pedal still feels soft or travels to the floor there may be a pinhole lea ... 1994 Honda Accord
I have a problem with my brake light appearing above my speedometer. I recently got stuck in the snow and had to dig my way out. Ever since then my brake light has been showing with the (!)(P) symbols showing. I can still stop however when I press on the brake, I have to almost touch the floor. whereas it us to be so sensitive that I only had to go half way down with the brake pedal. I checked for leaks with my break fluid and seems to be ok. Anyone have an idea what might be wrong. Do I need to

I have an intermittent problem with my brakes and my mechanic can't find anything wrong (of course the problem won't happen for him, so he doesn't really know what I'm talking about). What happens is that sometimes when I brake, I get a crunchy kind of sound, and the pedal seems to depress a bit further than usual. On one outing, this may happen at every stop sign, or not at all. My brake system is new (a year) and everything appears to be in order. Any suggestions?

When coming to a slow stop-2mph- brakes go into antilock mode. Lately when I press the pedal its like stepping on a brick-I have to slam them a couple times to get them to work. Is this the antilock brake sensor- and is it a difficult repair.
I have the same truck and it did what your describing, it's the front wheel speed sensor, one in each wheel bearing. What happens is rust gets under the speed sensor lifting it up enough to send a false volt reading which causes the ABS to come on an ... 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
