Brakes Good Morning! I was headed down my driveway this morn and realized I had no brakes. My neighbor came and poured brake fluid into the res and I watched under neath when he pumped the brakes the fluid came swooshing out with each pump, This is happening in the rear of the car. Can you tell me what this is and about how much it should cost me to get this fixed? Many thanks your kind assistance. Regards, Nancy

You have a leaking brake line or a bleeder valve is open. if it is the bleeder valve than all you have to do is close it. if it is a broken line then you will have to buy new line. if you do it your self it will only cost around twenty with about four hours of work if you know what your doing. other wise a shop will prolly charge around 80-150$

My brakes on my 2000 528 are freezing-up. I know I need new pads and rotors to the rear. Thought I was putting fluid in k it is the brake res. but I think it is the ATF res. Please help

As you apply the brakes the rotar and the pads wear down and your flued level goes down also, if you keep going the pads will drop out and the rotar will also get thiner the pads will actually fall out and you will have no brakes at all, so it is advisable to replace the pads it will cost you less money in the long run.

2003 dodge neon my brakes are not working, i do have break fluid

If he just poured brake fluid in the system will need to be bled of air. Air, unlike liquid, is able to be compressed and accounts for the "weak" feeling in your brakes.

To bleed the brakes, you'll need two people. One person to open the bleeder screw at each wheel, and another to pump the brakes from the driver's seat. When bubbles stop coming out of the bleeder port, close it back up and move on to the next wheel. Make sure the reservoir doesn't run dry while you're doing this.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL V6 with 4-wheel disc brakes, the brakes are very ineffective until the car warms up. It doesn't matter how hard I push down on the brake pedal, they slow the car down but not...

at 60 F it is starting to get close to freezing
as brake fluid is hygroscopic ( absorbs water from the air) it is very possible that the brake fluid is starting to get too thick to move in the brake lines from the water content in the fluid
I would be flushing out the entire brake system and replacing the fluid from a new unopened container of brake fluid
ensure that the cap seal on the reservoir is in good condition
discuss this prospect with your brake people especially if it is some time since the fluid was replaced

I have a 1994 Roadmaster. Brakes were fine yesterday. This morning brakes need pushed to the floor to stop and they make a LOUD grinding sound. How much for brakes or is it the brakes?

Don't drive the car, it's too dangerous! 1st check the fluid level. For the brakes to go to the floor, you must have a fluid leak somewhere. Any drips or puddles under the car? The grinding sound most likely indicates the brake pads are down to metal, and would explain the noise you hear. So, yes, it is the brakes, but as far as how much, a visual inspection is needed, as well as checking rotors for thickness to determine if they can be cut and used again, or if new ones are needed. Calipers need to be checked to make sure they are operating properly. If one is hanging up (not fully releasing), it could result in advanced wear to just one wheel. Always change brakes in sets, that is both front, both rear, or all 4 at once. Bleed the system well enough to flush out all lines, as old brake fluid can damage brake calipers and cylinders causing premature failure. The visual inspection will determine if you need calipers, pads, rotors, and how many wheels need new brakes. Good luck.

Grinding noise when backing up Jeep Liberty'06 only in the AM..

Have your rear brakes checked. It might be a brake wear indicator. Or your rear brakes are stuck on the brake drum.

Brakes are still spongy after changing the pads, one caliper, and master cylinder. bled front brakes.

I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?

Brake Light

to narrow things down... park the vehicle in the driveway over night... when you move it in the morning ... note the area of the spill on your driveway as it would apply to the car.
Two quick things... what is the level of your brake fluid and what colour and smell was the spill ?
