1998 S10 Blazer 4x4 Rear disc brake pads worn out so I replaced pads Now the brakes stick bad enough to smoke badly after just 2 miles on both wheels . I really thought this this would be just like front disc pads as ive replaced prob a 100 of those over the years. Never had a rear disc brake car. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help [email protected] Mo

Hi i have a 1995 cheverolet silverado 1500. For years i've had the problem of a really soft brake pedal that goes all the way to the floor before it brakes. It has abs, front disc brake and rear drum brakes. I have recently replaced the front brake discs and pads and rear brake shoes and drums. We then went on to replace the brake master cylinder and the brake booster but it still has the same problem even with numerous number of attempts to bleed the brake lines. There is no air in the system t

Brake Problem My sons 1998 Mazda 626 has had new disc & brake pads fitted to the front of his car & rear disc machined & new pads.

Front brakes (how to do it) I'm a novice about mechanics. I have a 2005 Ford Escape XLT. I recently had my back brakes done in which it cost me almost $400.00/ labor itself was $78.00/ Premium brake pads were $81.95/ Bendix Global R Disc Brake Rotor was $179.90 (whatever that was) They did replace left and right rotor. of course there was a charge for shop supplies, State tax and then the city tax. The mechanic told me that I had 10% front brake pads left. So I decided to try to do it myself. Bu

I have a Lesabre 1994, I was facing a defected front Brakes discs, so I repaired them & returned the old brake pads to the system since they were semi New! In the same day, I noticed that the break pedal is going very low when using the brakes1 I returned to the garage, and I told him the matter, so he told me to wait more days in order the discs and the pads to take their normal position. I did so, but the same low pedal still exist, so I returned to him and he pushed the air out from the bra

ABS braking My 1999 F150 ext cab 4x4 5.4 with 4 disc brakes has a spongy brake with a clicking feel in the brake pedal--the ABS goes light off and on--I have had all 4 pads replaced--the front rotors turned and replaced the 2 front calipers and bled brakes and still have a really bad spongy brake with that clicking or vibrating feel in the pedal---do you have any ideas? Thank you Dale

Hello, I have a 2005 lancer 1600 estate from new. At 27k miles a fault developed that when braking at 40 mph the steering wheel would vibrate. This was fixed by the supplier skimming the front discs. At 35k miles the problem re-ocurred, again fixed by skimming the front discs. At 38k miles the problem re-ocurred, this time fixed by fitting new front discs & pads. At 41k miles the problems has started again, always at about 40mph. I would be grateful if you can tell me if this is a common problem
Maybe the rotors are bigenuff and heat up too quick and warp but thats what they put on the car so youre out of luck,,,,you could put aftermarket rotors on it that are slotted and or crossdrilled which would greatly reduce the heat and your warping i ... 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer
I have a 99 grand voyager and the drivers side front brake is squeling. I'm not sure how to do brakes, but was told I have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes on the rear. Should I replace the pads and what else? Thank you so much for all your help!
These brakes are a pretty easy fix. For the job pick up some cheap gloves, you'll need general hand tools, proper Brake Fluid (DOT 3?)some brake cleaner, a large C-clamp, new pads (front) and I'd replace the front rotors too. Place the van on jack st ... 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager
Hello I have a intermittant red brake light coming on in my 116i bmw 1 series. It is a shape of a car, with two lines coming out underneath it, one going to the left, and one to the right. The book indicates it may be the brakes but it doesnt say specifically that it is. I have had it checked at the dealer where I brought it, and they have confirmed that the brakes were new (discs and pads) on the front when I brought it in June of this year, and the back brakes and pads were checked before I br

Front drivers side disc brake on 2001 dodge stratus. put on new rotor and brake pads. Get up to around 5mph it makes a noise, until brakes are hit. accelerate the noise starts again. outer brake pad is loose. What is problem?
The piston from the caliber will keep the inner and outer pads close to the rotor. If outer pads is loose, need to reassemble to find out if it didn't get installed right. ... 2001 Dodge Stratus

It sounds like something is vibrating or rubbing in the front end. I put new brake discs on about 2000 miles ago. I started to have this noise problem about 200 miles ago and it is steadily getting worse. I backed off the calipers and the noise seemed to go away when I test drove it. Once I pumped the brakes up the noise returned. Could I have a warped disc or vibrating brake pads or what? Thanks for your assistance. Dave

The knock from your passenger side sounds very much like a worn balljoint/bush allowing excess play in either steering or suspension components. A quick check at your local garage with the car off the ground should identify the offending item.\ ... 1993 BMW 5 Series
2003 suzuki aerio passenger front brake keeps locking up. i have replaced the pads, disc and the caliper,??????? drive about 5 mins and they get tight, then when used they lock up, right front only this is Not all wheel drive and doesnt look like it has and wires down there for anti lock brakes. someone said to remove the abs fuse and i did a test drive and it hasnt happend yet. so would it be the abs? and what would it be?
This problem is only caused by one thing on this late model car, that is a leaking hydraulic control valve in the ABS unit, this allows brake pressure to be applied to the caliper pistons without any input from the driver. ... Suzuki Aerio
I have a 1986 gm motorhome, with a P 3500 (1 ton) chassis, disc brakes all around. I have had issues with the back brakes "sticking" slightly on, resulting in a wicked metatl overheat smell and extreme heat on the rear brake components. The front brakes work and "ride" properly. I have had the whole back end done, (New axle seals, diff seals, calipers, rotors, and pads, done. The problem does not go away. It seems after about twenty minutes of driving, the brakes do not want to fully release on
Sometimes the rubber brake hoses will collapse internally and allow fluid to pass through to the caliper, but won't let the fuild return. The best way to check them is to crack open the hoses where they go into the caliper. If they squirt, then ther ... 1986 Chevrolet Camaro
