Several possible causes:

  1. Did you use copper-based brake grease on the brake pins and the back of the pads?
  2. Did you clean all the old gunk off the brake pins and after doing so, where they deeply grooved? If so, you must replace them.
  3. Wrong brake pads. Some pad manufacturers list a patricular pad as being OK for a vehicle. They fit OK but the pad characteristics are wrong and they squeal like crazy or wear out in no time or give lousy raking performance etc.
  4. If the pads you removed had anti-squeal shims on the back of them did the new ones? They almost certainly should have. IIRC, they are held to the pads by some double-sided adhesive tape.
  5. If you get squeak-silence-squeak-silence... at low speed (i.e. just before coming to a halt) then the disk(s) is/are distorted. They will have to be replaced. You must not machine the discs on these brakes - there is no thickness available to do that. If you do tthey may well collapse under the heavy braking of an emergency stop with very unfortunate consequences!
  6. As someone said, the disc may be badly worn and/or grooved -check and replace if necessary.
  7. You may have a stone or piece of grit stuck between a pad and a disc. If so & it's worn a groove in the disc,you will need to replace both disc and pad.
  8. Make sure you torqued any brake bolts correctly and that you put thread sealant on them. Failure to do so can lead to them loosening in normal use. The brakes may squeak for a while if this happens but then things can get much worse...

If are the rear pads making noise check if the spring holding the pads is placed on the correct side.

Car goes dead when slow down to stop or pull up to red light


The throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean. Make sure to clean the front and back sides of the throttle body. Also, disconnect the battery during the cleaning process to allow the computer to reset and relearn to the cleaned throttle body.

Audi a4 making a skweek noise in front when braking + making a kadoef noise in the back weal


get the front breakes checked incase they need replacing if they are ok you can try cleaning the rust of around the disks also taking the pads out and putting a bit copper grease on the backs of the pads might stop them from sqeeking some time a harder pad will make the sqeek any way but try the above it should stop hope this helps ivan

I have a 2004 alero and when I press on the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign a vibration occurs and it's loud but when I put it in park it stops vibrating. What can I do about this problem?


Sounds like you have warped rotors and or a lose caliper mounting bolt . When you stop do you feel a vibration in the brake peddle or in the steering wheel or both ? IF you feel the pulsation in the brake peddle I would suspect a brake pad / brake rotor problem . Now if you do not feel it in either and the vibration is through the whole car with out the brakes being applied i would think it may be related to and engine/drive line problem (motor mount /trans mount /axle problem)

1998 dodge caravan replaced brake pads because they were skweeking and now they wore back down in 1 week and they skweek and smell like they are burning ?


They are probably dragging on the rotor. did you replace the rotors or have them turned down.If not that has an impact also. more than likely it
s your calipers not sliding smoothly on the slide bolt therfore not retracting like the are suppose to.

Long, slow braking is producing noise intermittently. Doesn't happen every day, but when it does the car has been driven for about 15 minutes. Dealer hasn't heard it, therefore 'no problem'. They say the...


If i understand this right the brakes skweeks,and if so you remove the pads and mount anti skweek plates between the pistong and the pads,i guess you kan find this at the local dealer and are fixed in 30 minutes.

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

It's possible the caliper is frozen and has worn one pad down completely. Get it checked, soon

If you can feel it in the brake peddle when you push on it, then your brake rotors are warped. Putting new pads and rotors in will solve this. Is caused by braking too hard (driving really fast to a stop sign and stopping in the last few feet). I have heard a few times that some people upgrade to a better brake when they increase wheel size, but I do not think that is a problem in you case.
