Question about Mitsubishi Passenger

1 Answer

I have two problems, the first being that randomly when i apply pressure to the brakes it has a very brrrr sound like a train stopping i guess is the way to say it, secondly i had my gear box replaced at the local mitsubishi dealer its now been 8 months and it still grabs, i have taken it back to the dealer and they are telling me im imagining it, however i have had a number of people drive it and they are saying it needs to be fixed ASAP, i am unsure as to wether i should take the dealerships word as gosbel because if they had of done there service properly in the first place the gear box would not have blown up two days after it was supposed to have all fluids replaced/filled.

97 legacy front calipers locked up @random fluid not returning to the reservoir. Is there a valve that is keeping the fluid in calipers or can I bypass the hydraulic unit. If let cool fluid returns


Calipers do not retain brake fluid, you apply the brake ...the pressure is transmitted to the cylinders in the calipers and they act on the pads

Sounds like you need a braking system diagnostic of you are losing brake fluid and experiencing lock up. Sounds like it should be looked into immediately .....just in case

When coming to a stop, the brakes work fine until I get almost stopped, then the pedal will push down further and brakes will come on hard, and stop vehicle hard, what could be the problem?


Sounds like your master cylinder is bad on your brake system. If you are stopped in your driveway(not on the street) leave the vehicle in park. Start the car and place your foot on the brake with light pressure and keep this pressure on the pedal. If the pedal continues to drop slowly to the floorboard your master cylinder is leaking past the primary piston in the master cylinder. If this is the case have this repaired immediately. Your brakes could just all of a sudden not be there the next time you apply them when you need to stop.

I have a 2000 towncar wtih clinking noise under dash. Sounds like the blinker is on but it isn't. Apply the brake, stops the noise. Turning on a turn signal stops the random clicking. It stops after...


it could be in fact the turn signal sound since this is produced electronically by the cluster

pull the cluster and confirm its making the sound

I replaced quite a few at the dealer for similar concerns

I have a shimmy in mySteering wheel not all the time it comes on randomly.


In absence of more information, this is usually an symptom of warped brake rotors. A rotor can build up enough heat in a hard stop to be bendable especially with the high hydrolic pressure a brake pad can bring to bear. Simply, If you keep the brake pedal depressed hard after a hard/long stop it can warp the rotor. (NOTE: at a hard stop, as soon as possible let the car creep forward a few inches at a time so the brake pad won't be on any one spot too long, plus keep light brake pressure --only enough to keep the car from rolling). The warped rotor causes the brake pad and caliper to float too far from the rotor and you won't feel the shimmy until you apply brakes. Under brake pedal pressure each time the wheel rotates under brake pressure the rotor and caliper will rapidly vibrate a few millimeters to each side giving the sensation of a shimmy in the sterring wheel. Most of the time this can be corrected by having the rotors resurfaced( aka Turned)

Out of balance or out of round tires can also cause a shimmy but should occur at a given speed range. Warpped rotor shimmy occurs during deceleration.

2008 rav-4 toyota brake pedal continues to go down after you stop while holding the brake pedal at a red light.


If you own a Toyota with (BA) Brake Assist, it may be out of adjustment. It is adjustable on the 2010 Highlander and I would guess that it might be adjustable on your Toyota vehicle as well. (Assuming this is actually your problem, you have had it checked out by your service department and they said there is nothing wrong or that it was normal.) If the brake assist is out of adjustment it may be coming on too soon or when minimal brake pressure is applied. This causes a long brake pedal (brake fade or the pedal travels longer than normal before resistance is felt) and/or jerky brakes. As far as the Hill Climb Assist or DSC, this feature is activated when the brakes are applied after the vehicle has come to a stop and then you continue to press harder on the brakes for a couple more seconds. It also comes on if you drive with two feet. If you have your foot on the brake and you press slightly on the accelerator (when the vehicle is completely stopped), the DSC will come on and you will hear the chirp.
