Question about 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

HZJ79R Toyota Landcruiser brakes.

Hi The brakes on my 2001 Landy Ute.are OK except when I apply then harshly,as in an emergency when they are firm on the pedal but the car stopping distance is excessive. I've checked the discs and pads and all are in good condition. The vehicle hasn't worked hard,having travelled 68000 K's only. It has had an exrra leaf added to the rear spring,(could the load proportioner be the problem) Are the vacuum pumps reliable or prone to trouble? The vehicle was laid up for two years before I bought it.
Regards Dave. Brisbane Australia

You could be correct regarding the proportioning valve,

This allows more fluid pressure to the rear brakes when the vehicle is loaded, otherwise it will mainly brake using the front most. Adding the extra leaf may have altered the setting.

Another thing is that the pads may be contaminated with rust, or be a compound too hard. Cheaper replacement pads are often not the same material as OE parts. Make sure the calipers are free to move and not siezed.

When I stomp on my brakes let's say in an emergency the pedal is very hard and the brakes don't realy work at all but if I use them normally they are perfect it's on a ford au xr6 ute


to test your brake assist is working. stop the motor. Press w few times the brakes, till the pedal feels sturdy. Then while pressing the pedal down firmly, start the engine. When you feel the pedal going down, like feeling "soft" you know the brake assist works. If nothing changes it is defect.

Check that the intercooler is in good condition (no cracks or leaks) and the hoses are tight at the hose clamps . Next talk to a diesel pump repair specialist as you may have to re-tip the injectors and re-calibrate the pump for the extra air that the turbo produces. Check that you have the correct turbo for the diesel

I replaced my rear brakes. Does the emergency brake automatically adjust itself?


Yes.....and no. Emergency brake should have been checked during brake pad replacement.
Most do adjust to new pads...ie: return to factory adjustment setting due to new pads .

The E brake lever should be applying braking to the wheels after three clicks are heard during application of the Emergency brake.

Lift rear of car and apply emergency brake to the third click. Now both rear wheels should drag equally but not be locked up.
.
If not, adjustment required.

However, late model cars need a scanner to pull back the pistons and install pads.

Adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe


If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Newly installed brake rotors and pads. balanced wheels, but still shakes when brakes are applied. I can also feel the shaking on the steering wheel when driving on rough road.


Apply the emergency brake slightly while driving to see if the rear brakes are the issue. Other wise the rotors are warped or there is debris behind the rotor to hub surface
