Question about 1998 Nissan Quest
I recently bought a 1998 Nissang Quest with 80K miles. The previous owner had replaced the right caliper and put on new brake pads. I didn't think much of it until I drove it a few days and the front brakes started roaring and rumbling. I pulled the wheels and checked - it seemed like they had been fairly hot and were glazed. So, I installed new rotors, Wagner pads, brake hoses, and a left caliper (the right is already new remember). This worked great for a short period of time, but now the brakes will squeal and sometimes grind, especially when the are cold. After I drive it a little bit it seems to go away (especially the grinding). Any ideas? Thanks!
This is a head scratcher! My first thought is the rotors. They have an oil film that needs to be degreased before being installed. That may be only part of the prob! My guess is that you hit open road in a short time?? The grinding, jack each wheel and rotate by hand, have your helper gently apply the brakes,[just slightly], this should lead you to the prob. Also check for movement in the wheel bearings. Check that the dust shields are clearing the rotor. If all this fails, remove the wheels and check the inside of the rims for any wear marks. This may be ever so slight. This is the best I can come up with at this time! Frankster016
