I am a certified master technician with 12 years experience. i just took on a 2001 hummer h1 side job, i have fixed multiple coolant leaks on it, replaced almost the whole steering and suspension in the front, and that was all fairly easy and standard repairs. i figured i would save the back brakes for last since they would be the easiest, lol. if anyone out there can just give me some pointers on doing these rear brakes i am only doing pads, there just isnt any room back there, i am also doing

I need to replace a front brake line on my 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 duelly. This is an ABS system. The dealer's mechanic said it would be an easy fix...just unbolt at both ends and replace. My repair manual shows a much longer repair involving an extensive but not well explained system of completely bleeding out the brake lines before doing the repair and an even more confusing description of refilling and bleeding the lines afterward. It also mentioned a special tool that I do not have. Is it reall
No it is not that difficult you need to change the line then bleed the affected brake which consists of two people one pumping up and holding the brake pedal down and the other one loosening off the bleeder valve to let the air out depending on how ... 1998 Dodge Ram 3500 2WD
The handbrake on my 1997 audi a4 avant 1.8 petrol sport slips back down, the handbrake is having the desired effect however as you raise the arm (without depressing the button) there are no clicks and it simply falls back down, obviously releasing the brake again! Any ideas on what has broken and how to fix it would be much appreciated, Thanks, Mike

Tranny problem Was just coming home and was parking my car. Put it into park, but didn't have park. In fact i had no gears at all. Pushed it into parking space and had to set parking brake so it would not roll back. It is a 1999 Cavalier. Any idea the cost of repairs?
It won't move in any gear postion? And it rolls in park? Does the speedometer go up when you try to drive it? First check the cv shafts to make sure they aren't broke. ... 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
Failed inspection need exhaust pipe and cat converter - how much will this cost - i just spent $771 to fix brakes, 1 tire, tune up, axle, motor mount, some worn belts and thought all was good - thought the only repair necessary was to replace timing belt which i know is expensive. went to inspection and failed for exhaust pipe. i went back to mechanic who said he knew nothing about this even though my car was up on the lift and now he claims it will cost me $450. The timing belt is around $600 s
Cat converters are not cheap, if your exhaust can be fixed for 450 you are doing good. A timing belt at 600 is normal. The fact the mechanic didn't find an exhaust leak is here nor there. You now need it fixed to pass an inspection. ... 1995 Toyota Camry
2004 avalanche..46k miles..was making a noise that sounded like something was warped ..abs would engage below 5 mph..took to repair shop and they replaced both front hubs..said the abs was fixed ..sensors were rusted and left bearings were bad..said noise was now the tires..i do not think so.will not take it back there..still makes a warping sound like a warped disc..brakes feel fine though.what else could this be??
Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control. ... 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche

My 2001 hyundai sonata had the following work done: a new altenator, new battery, right front axel, left front axel, 4 new tires, oil change, tune up, serpintin belt, front pads and rotors (brakes), massive air flow sensor, egr valve, egr solenoid and waiting for motor parts to come in to fix two windows. With the expception of the window I would say that the car has been in the repair shop about two weeks. I got it back last Friday and it puttered as I was driving on a straight road. Then when
No. the ignition coil cannot affect the vehicle shifting. i would not take it back to them. i suggest calling a diagnostic specialist and taking the car to them. no matter how long the check engine light comes on, when it blinks it means that there i ... 2001 Hyundai Sonata
My 2002 Camry makes creaking noise when I lightly step in the brakes. I have changed the brake disks and pads twice. Initially, I had replaced by brake pads and disks with non-OEM sets and the creaking sound would come back every few weeks after I had my mechanic clean them. After a few months, I decided to go to the dealer and changed to a completely new OEM set of disks and pads. They even changed the clips as the previous was loose. And, the problem is now back again after 3days. It sounds li

I have a 2002 buick Le Sabre that pumps out hot air on the driver side and cold air on the passenger side. I took it to a repair shop and he said they had to go in the "back door" way and found 3 codes that could possibly show 2 different problems. One of the fixes he said would take a $600 part and the other would take a $300 part. He didn't want to start replacing parts unless he knew exactly which one it would be. I needed the car back and told him I would have to bring it back at a later dat

Just replaced back brakes on 85 chevey s-10 blazer and back brake line on passenger side. now there is no back brakes or preassure and fluid is full what would cause this and how do i fix
Cause is air in brake lines, correction is to bleed the rear brakes. Get a buddy to pump the pedal then open the bleeded scres on the rear wheels one at a time. Do this on each wheel 3 or 4 times and see if it gets better. Be sure to keep the brake f ... 1985 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
Right rear brake light doesn't work, on my 2001 Z-06 Corvette. Took it to the dealership a long time ago for the recall on the steering column. When I got it back the brake light didn't work and the dealership wanted an additional $700 or so to fix it. Then the column key control wouldn't let me drive over 1 mile per hour a few years later and the dealership charged me $700 but still didn't fix the brake light, they said that would be an additional $700.00 So how can i fix this without getting
Check it out. Under the passenger floor panel you will find two relays above the computer box. Pull them. Check them. One of these is to the steering lock bypass which is a $19.70 part at Napa. I went through this for a week and a half and refused to ... 2001 Chevrolet Corvette

Hi. I just bought a micra 2003 with 66,000 miles, but have had a tensioner on the timing chain fixed and an oil seal nearby fixed. I took it back to Charles Hurst and they spotted 2 more oil leaks one near the timing chain and one near the gear box - they said it would mean lifting the engine out to fix them. However, when I got back to them to arrange a time for repair, they told me it was the seal at the crank shaft and I 'd only need to leave the car in for a day. Do you think they're mess
Hard to say, it depends on how trustworthy you think they are. From what you say, it appears to be oil seals leaking, you can take a chance and add a Wynn's product to you oil that swells and softens oil seals and stops them leaking. I ... Nissan Versa
I have 2006 Dodge Stratus 4 cycl. It died on me while i was driving and wouldn't start back up. i had a mechanic check it out and he said it was the timing belt but he couldn't tell me for sure if replacing the timing belt would fix the problem or if i would need a new motor. would it be woth it to fix it or to get get a new car(that i can't afford)???? how much wouldthis cost??? the mechanic mentioned changing the timing belt, head job, or new motor...
The problem is that it depends on the mileage and the condition of the car and if it was kept up, the timing belt is what keeps the top and bottom of the motor in time, when the belt breaks the pistons come up and hit and bend the valves because the ... Dodge Stratus
Rust Repair I need to fix the cab corners on my truck and was wanting some opinions. Should I weld in the panels or glue them down. I was also wondering if I should just use a bedliner and go down the side to cover it up or should I paint it. Painting it would look nicer but is it worth the extra cost. How much do you think it would cost to do both of them and also how much of each will I need. These figures will help influence my decision. Thank you very much for your help.
I've asked several auto body guys this over the years and they have told me they like gluing better because if done right its as good or better than welding, You have less problems with distortion due to heat, don't have to worry about catching the v ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I recently got into an accident and it was due to my brake line and rear passenger brake. it caused damage to the front right side. the light, hood tire twisted and i think the axel as wel if you would like i can send a picture i would like to know how much it would be to repair?
Well I do not know about the brake line part. a brake line being out of fluid in the rear would nor prevent the car from stopping becasue all newer cars after 1775 have to master clyinders in them one to operate the front brakes and the other to oper ... Acura Legend
Parking Brake We took our 2003 Tahoe for inspection and failed because the parking brake didn't hold. We live in TX and the land is very flat so we almost never use it. I was told it would cost well over $1,000 to fix. Is it hard to fix ourselves or does it really cost this much to have it done?? Thanks! Pondroms
Hello;\015\012 Since you rarely use the parking brake, it is probably out of adjustment. Get under the drivers side of the vehicle after blocking the tires. You will see a cable running down the side of the frame. Follow the cable to the ad ... Chevrolet Tahoe

We were driving down the road and the speedometer did a little dance and then went down. All the lights in the instrument panel came on and then went back to normal except the ABS and the brake light. These 2 stayed on. We put it on a OBDII scanner and it came back with a P0500 code. Please tell us this is easy to fix and then tell us how to fix. Thank you so much. Trudy Smith

TRYING TO CHANGE MY FRONT BRAKE PADS ON MY GS300 LEXUS 1993. MY QUESTION IS WHEN I TAKE RIM OFF AND LOOSEN UP THE CALIPER TO RELEASE BRAKE PADS AFTER RE-INSTALLING I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO BLEED THE BRAKES LIKE BACK IN THE DAYS. CURRENTLY MY CAR BRAKE PADDLE IS LIKE IT HAS AIR IN IT. SO IF THERE IS ANY DIRECTION YOU CAN GIVE ME IN REPLACING MY FRONT BRAKE PADS I WOULD APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH
Frank, you are correct, as long as you don't disconnect a brake line at the caliper, or somewhere else, you shouldn't have to bleed the brakes. HOWEVER, you seem to have other issues with the brakes, besides just replacing the pads. Is the master c ... 1994 Lexus GS 300
My dashboard doesnt work. Everything is on zero. The car runs fine and starts fine but I have no idea how fast Im going or how much gas I have left. The service engine soon light is on and the ABS light. When this first started it would occasionally happen and both lights would come on but then for no obvious reason the dash would work again and just the service engine light would stay on. I have had this to five different repair shops and no one has any ideas on how to fix it.
