Only the front brakes on my 2008 town and country appear to be applying


Have the proportioning valve checked on it. This valve reduces braking power to the rear brakes under hard braking to keep the rear brakes from locking up due to less weight on rear wheels. When malfunctioning it can cause the rears to not apply at all.

I have a 2003 4runner with 102400 miles. It has started to have a squeak somewhere. Sounds like it is on the drivers side. I changed the front brakes and rotors about 10000 miles ago. How does a person...


The rear brakes last a long time since 80% of braking is on the front wheels. This helps keep the car in a straight line in hard braking where the front wheel lock up. The rear wheels keep rolling to keep the car in a straight line much like a fin on a rocket keep its path straight through the air. If you have never changed the rear brakes then it is time to check it. The squeak is caused by a device mounted is such a way so that it touches the brake disk when the pad wears to a certain point. Letting you know it is time for a new pad.

Shaking front wheel when braking. Mecury Sable 2001 front wheel drive


If the front wheel shakes only when you apply the brakes, the most likely cause is a warped brake rotor. The rotor can be "turned" to make it flat and true again, but it will most likely warp again since it will be thinner and it gets hot when you apply the brakes. I normaly replace them and they are about $35.00.

I have a 2005 chevy silverado with drum rear brakes and it seems like i'm only useing my front brakes even though i adjust them it seems like they won't stay to wear i feel it in the brake pedal.....also...


The rear brakes normally only account for about 25% of your braking power. Due to engine weight being over the front wheels, and the way that the front settles down when braking, it's proportioned that way to get the best braking performance, especially in a pickup. Unless you change the proportioning valve, the amount of braking that the rear wheels do will not change. As for the brake dust, some types of pads do that more than others, and with disk brakes, this is normal.

95 G20 Chevy van: ABS light stays on, pulls right when braking


You actually have two separate problems. The brake pull to the right is indicating the left side brake is not working properly. You will want to remove the left front wheel, collapse the caliper piston and make sure the caliper is floating freely on its mounts.
With the piston collapsed you should be able to slide the caliper inboard and outboard of the rotor. If not, you will want to remove the attachment pins, clean and lubricate the pins. If they are grooved or worn you will have to replace them.
The second issue of the ABS light is indicating the system has detected an electrical sensing or control problem. Take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes. They will scan it for you at no charge.
Chances are you will find a wheel speed sensor problem at one of the wheels.
Write the codes down and respond back, we can start diagnosing the problem,
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Volvo 850 GLT's brakes??


if the pulsating in the steering occurs while braking this is an indications that the rotors are out of round and need to be turned or replaced. if they are causing a pulsating while driving without braking it could be the calipers sticking.

your back brakes will be cooler than the front brakes as the majority of braking is done ith the front brakes even on four wheel disc brakes. hope this helps.
