If the wheel cylinder blows out you will lose your brakes. I would say that is dangerous.

A Mechanic told me my breaks in the rear arnt getting the fluid so therefore my back break arnt working only my front.What do i have to look over?


The rear wheel cylinders may be bad. They receive the fluid to put pressure on the rear drum brakes. It is an inexpensive part and something you can easily do yourself if you have mechanical knowledge, otherwise a shop will stick it to you for the replacement. Also check the actual brake lines for any leaks.

make sure you are bleeding them by doing them as an abs system,do the right rear then the left front,then the left rear then the right front,the opposite wheels are how the system brakes.

Our 1997 GMC Sierra locks rear wheels suddenly


More likely to be a rear end issue. If the brakes have been checked I would have your rear end checked. Could turn into a very dangerous situation.
