Yes...its either the caliper or the brake hose which distributes the brake fluid from line to the caliper

I have 04 awd saturn vue my front driver and rear passenger brakes won't engage or something.


Make sure the master cylinder is full and that the vacuum line going to it is is secure wit no air leaks. If as you state the brakes not being applied only at the drivers front and passengers rear wheels, but the other two wheels are working fine you will either have a leaking/blocked master cylinder, leaking/blocked brake lines feeding each of those wheels, or a bad proportioning valve. To trouble shoot raise the bad wheel and crack open the bleeder valve, have an assistant apply the brakes if a nice clean steady stream of fluid comes out, MC is OK, and valve is OK, any bubbles of poor flow indicates leak in system. Very little flow bad MC or blocked lines/valve, etc.Do the same for the rear wheel and you should be able to determine the fault.

Pulling


Possibly a under inflated tire or a wheel balance weight got knocked off. A wheel alignment shop could repair this for under $100. If tires are balanced try tire rotation by putting the rear wheels on the front and front wheels on the rear. If it pulls to one side during breaking it could be worn out brakes or a leaking brake caliper. check inside of tire sidewalls for brake fluid streaks in the inner sidewall

1991 buick park avenue brake problem had busted brake line on drivers side rear brake so i fixed it then bleed the brakes.aint getting no brake fluid comming out of the passenger side rear so took of the...


Hi Chris, The brake system is basically very simple. If you have duel braking on your vehicle, the usual method is having two brakes operate on the front with for example the left rear and the other system will also operate two front and the right rear. This type of system will have two calipers on each of the front wheels. The tandem system works in a slightly different way, having the forward part of the cylinder pressurizing the rear brakes and the rear part of the cylinder pressurizing the front. I think under the circumstances you are describing, I would have a friend sit inside and pump the brakes repeatedly until the system becomes pressurized (maybe twenty thirty times of pumping the brake pedal) and then ask him or her to keep it pushed firmly down until you find out where its leaking. The amount of brake fluid you report having been sed would indecate a severe leakage. Check the lower parts of the rear wheels for signs of leaking wheel cylinders and then dito for the front wheels. Any signs of wetness at these areas and along the brake system (the plumbing or pipe work) will indicate where the leakage is. If you cannot identify a wheel which is leaking, carefully inspect around and blow the master cylinder and if this no sign go along the fluid lines, taking special note of where the damaged pipe was repaired. If there is a blockage in the line, air may be trapped at that point causing difficulty in pressurizing. Once the place of leakage has been identified it must be attended to before bleeding the system. When bleeding, begin with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder, and work your way back to the master cylinder one wheel at a time, until you reach the closest.Keep in mind that you may find it required to pump the pedal many many times before opening the bleed nipple.Regards John

My brake light has gone on and stayed on twice in the past three months. When I take it to the garage, they add brake fluid. Why does the car seem to be losing brake fluid?


well if you are losing fluid you definatly have a leak as brake fluid is not a "topping off fluid". you could have a leaking master cylinder either externaly which can be seen on brake booster or it can be leaking into the brake booster filling it with fluid. other than that you also may be leaking from your brake hoses(one hose at each wheel), calipers(front wheels and rear if all wheel disc brakes), wheel cylinders (if you have rear drum brakes), or metal brake lines due to rust and corrosoin (run from master cylinder to each brake hose). please rate 4 thumbs if helpful.

Fluid is leaking on all four wheels. 2006 GS300


Check your brake fluid reservoir if you are low. Other than that, the only parts with fluid are the shocks.

Saab 95, dirty front wheels (brake fluid?)


Is this oily or a dry dust? I suspect that since it is both wheels, it is caused by 'brake dust' which is just residue from the linings as the brakes wear. The solution is to install ceramic brake pads to eliminate the unsightly problem, however, if this is the problem. it is only visual, it does not affect the performance. Washing the wheels thoroughly, then applying wax to them will make future clean up easier. If the residue is oily or greasy, you probably have issues with an axle seal leaking. In that case it should be checked soon, as wheel bearing failure can result if too much grease is lost.

Brake line leak


start from the farthest, right rear, left rear, right front, then left front, take some time in bleeding your left front since it has more air induced during line replacement. good luck!

1991 Acura Legend No Brakes


The only common issue I know if is the master cylinder leaking, but if you changed the booster you would have found your leak.

Check for fluid at the brake pedal under the dash.
