OK Jin, 1st I'd like to know if u know what kind of shape the brake pads are in, are they wearing evenly, (inner and outer, and both wheels) are they grinding metal on metal? If everything is wearing evenly, and u haven't gotten to the point of metal pads (brake lining worn off) grinding on the rotors, u can probably get away w/ just changing the pads, although to do a quality job, you should also remove the brake rotors, have them cut (ground down perfectly smooth and flat) by an auto shop (about $18 each in my area), and bleed the brake system to flush out the old fluid so u have new fluid in the system. You also may need calipers if break pads are not wearing evenly. Let me know condition of brake pads and other above questions, and I can give u more info. I'll be on the road tomorrow for 15+ hours tomorrow, so be patient for a reply! countrycurt0

1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra, brakes went to the floor with no warning and the Brake light came on-previous day there was a stange smell while stopped at red light . What could the problem be?


I'd be willing to bet that a brake line has rusted through, somewhere near the brake rotors or the exhaust. The smell was probably burning brake fluid. Check the fluid level in the resevior, If it's low, top it off and with the car off, pump the brakes and look for the puddle under the car. That should point you in the direction of the leak. Also check the wheel cylinders. This would require removing the rear wheels and brake drums. A bad master cylinder could also be the cause. If you don't have any fluid loss, i'd suspect the master.

Just put new brake caliper on front driver side


Gravity bleed caliper, just open valve and have a coffee break and close it. Did you buy a loaded caliper with new pads on it? Check the rear wheel cylinders they may be the cause of your mushy pedal. They are cheap too.

Of course, check the fluid first. Running, pull the stick out, wipe it and put it in, pull out and read it. If fluid smells burned, it probably is. (indicating an internal problem) If low, add till full and try to move vehicle. Check for evidence of leaks underneath & repair before driving. Even if it does move, it's likely that something has been damaged somewhat from driving with low fluid... At the least, have the fluid changed, to prevent burned fluid from causing more damage.

Transmission problems


sounds like the bands in the transmission are burnt up!! I would say try changing the tranny fluid first and filter to see if you get any metal in the fluid and see if new fluid helps!

How to change the brakes of a 98 cutlass


Some noise is normal for all disc brake system, they have wear indicators that touch the rotor and make a very loud and annoying noise, if this is your case then you need new pads, remember to have the rotor checked for thickness and abnormal wear, all of that can cause brake abnormal noise, if you do replace the pads use quality parts from Know suppliers such as WAGNER and BENDIX, use there new quiet line of brake pads, they produce far less squeak than cheap no name pads that many chain parts stores sell, remember that safety is an issue when changing brake pads, use jack stands and block the wheels.
