How do I install new break lines.


Replacing brake lines is a fairly difficult task and you will need some specialty tools to do the job properly. If you aren't very mechanically inclined, I would let a qualified mechanic do it. Get yourself a Haynes Manual for the truck (any auto parts store) and the basic procedure is in there. Look at that before attempting to do the work yourself. Remember IT'S YOUR BRAKES. It has to be done properly.

I have a 95 Villager with Anti Lock Brakes. I replaced the Pads, Calipers, Shoes and Front Brake lines. I bled the brakes according to the repair manual but, the brake light is on and the pedal still goes...


The brake bleed may not have been successful. Always bleed the right rear brake first then the left. Next the front right and then the left. If you are using someone to work the brake pedal make sure they hold it down until you have closed the bleed nipple. Make sure you use a little hose on the nipple and into a jar with fluid in it to watch for the bubbles to stop. Make sure the master cylinder always has enough fluid in it.
There is a brake bleeding kit that can be bought, this makes the job a lot easier.

Im hearing a grinding sound when i step on the brakes.


A grinding noise usually means you have sand, dirt, or some other type of debris stuck in your brakes. I would suggest taking it to a car wash and really trying to give it a good blast of water in around the brake drum or rotor. If that still doesn't do the trick and you are a bit mechanically inclined you can try taking the wheels off and take a closer look at your brake drum or calipers to see if there is anything stuck in them, otherwise I would then take it to a brake shop or a "trusted" mechanic to have them look at your brakes. I hope this helps.

Put brakes on a 95 Oldmobile 88 Royale


have you ever put brakes on any vehicle? thisi a job that requires them to be replaced properly and the drums or rotors may need turning as well if you arent very mechanically inclined i wouldnt attempt your life and the life of others will depend on your skills here that being said as a nocie I would go to the local library or book or auto store and get a repair manual for the vehicle and it will have written and illustrated directions

I would like to replace my brakes on my own. What parts do I need? Is there a guide for doing this?


If these are the FRONT brakes, it's not too bad of a job IF you are somewhat mechanically inclined. Jack, jack stands, metric wrenches and sockets, etc.. I'd suggest stopping at your Public Library and check out a Chilton's book on 'how to do it'.. Next stop would be to your local Parts Store (O-Reilly's, NAPA...) and tell them what you are going to do. They can help with the parts. I'd recommend replacing the brake rotors also. You CAN have them turned (machined) but if you do, you'll more than likely have to replace them before your next brake job. Once you get an idea of the cost of the parts (i.e. brake pads and rotors), compare prices (specials, sales) at some of your local repair shops. You might find that you aren't really saving all that much money PLUS if you screw something up, the only person you can yell at it yourself...

95 GMC Jimmy brakes are tight


The hard brake pedal is most likely a faulty power brake booster. Unless you suspect a faulty master cylinder, buy one with out it. In fact, if you suspect any other problems which might require opening the brake system (the booster does not) take it to a mechanic for repair. 

The brake booster will require removal of four bolts on the fire wall (from the inside of the truck) and the removal of the master cylinder (do not remove the brake lines, simply unbolt it from its mooring). You will also have to muck about with the connecter for the pedal rod. If you feel at all unsure about doing that job, have a mechanic do it.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Change brakes on 2006 mazda tribute


mcdevito75 here, That is a heavy duty job even for a good, good weekend mechanic, The truth is, as you know, you can run into a dozen problems that can and will leave you haveing to tow your vehicle to the shop. First you would need the TOOLs in American and Metric sizes as both American and Metric Nuts and Bolts are included on your Mazda, Then a Hydraulic jack that can hold at least 1 corner of the Mazda off the ground and--be able to with-stand the rocking motion as you did the job, Then you"d have to be concerned with parts, suppose you get the wrong parts, suppose you find a frozen or broken part, such as a brake hose, now you would have to bleed the brake system too. It"s very smart you are willing to do your own brakes BUT EVEN WISER TO KNOW, TO MANY PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE JOB. BEST BET, look for a sale on Brakes with-in you area, The tools, time and effort even if the job went smoothly, would cost about the same as the shop. Look for a sale, and have the shop do your brakes.

95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off


Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?

Traction control service light is coming on. Also when braking they feel like your on ice and the ABS is working.


sounds like sensitivity set to high you can take to any brake store or dealer to adjust sensitivity of tractrion control in which a computer program they have in there diagnostics will adjust

i hope this has helped you
