To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

It usually is not necessary to relace e line all the way back to the master cylinder. There is usually someplace along the line that can be flared and a barrel connector used to add new line. If you really want to replace it al the way to the master than it would be a good idea to bring the fittings with you when you go to pick up the new parts. This way there will be no communication issue between you and the parts people and you can make sure you are getting the correct parts before you leave the store. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

If it's a rusty brake line that's leaking you'd best replace the whole brake line system (all 4 wheels) for your safety. Fuel lines have the same problem. These are made out of steel and rust fast due
to calcium chloride used on the roads in winter.
Unless you're familiar with routing and installing connectors on these lines I suggest you let a pro do the job. It ain't as easy as it looks.

Rear brakes lock up very easy


leaking brake fluid or lining dust causes locking. take drums off and check brake cylinders for leakage at rubber boots. If leaking, replace cylinders and clean shoes with brake cleaner. If no leakage, clean out all dust with brake cleaner. Adjust shoes up tight to drum and reinstall. Let me know if you have questions or need instructions.

1999 sunfire replaced left rear brake line now i can not get fluid to rear brake lines


There is probably an air bubble in there.
Get a partner to push on the pedal as you simultaneously open up the bleeder screw.

One shouldn't have to use the abs brake bleeding procedure if no air got into the abs braking master cylinder area.

Keep trying to manually bleed the air out of the brake line. May have to tilt the car backwards to get the fluid to drip out by itself,
although air in the line can sometimes be difficult to get out after changing the rear brake line.

Good luck on this repair.

How do you replace brakes on 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


The engine size don't matter except when you order the parts. First you will want to chock the rear tires. This is a front wheel drive, when you jack the front, park wont work. you should also set the parking brake.
You will want a metric socket set and rachet, and a fairly large flat head screw driver.
Remove the wheel.
When you look at the brakes, you should see 2 bolts holding them on, If they have a star shape that looks like a screw driver might fit in it, it is a torx bit, you will need to replace the wheel and go get one. The guy at the parts store should be able to tell you what size.
I'm pretty sure it is going to be a regular hex nut, probably 12 or 13mm.
You can loosen them, but don't remove them yet.

First you need to depress your caliper. This can be done a couple ways.
I just insert a screw driver between the pad and the rotor(the shiny thing that the pads make contact with.) Carefully pry the inner pad slowly away from the rotor. Don't scratch the rotor, you can dig into the pad all you want, your putting new ones on.
Once the inner pad is all the way in, then you can remove the bolts and the caliper will slide out.
Remove the old pads and replace with the new.
Put the caliper back on, make sure you get the bolts tight.
Do the other wheel the same way.
The other way to get the caliper pushed in, by the way.
Remove the bolts, remove the caliper from the rotor, Use a large "c" clamp to depress the cylinder.

P.S. Do not under any circumstances remove your brake lines.

When you are finished with brakes and have tires replaced....

Caution!!! Before you start your car, pump your brakes a few times. Check your brake fluid. You more than likely wont need any, but you should always check it.
Also, do not add brake fluid before replacing pads, the level is going to be higher with new pads.

Back brakes will be similar if it is disc, if it is drum, do your self a favor and have some one else do it or get a service manual. I could walk you thru it, but you need more tools and you have to adjust them....
Better to pay $100 or so and have it done right.

I own a 1997 pontiac sunfire back right tire locking.


It seems that the backing plates are dirty and not allowing the brake shoe to return to it's proper position, rust builds up while not in use and causes the wheel to lock

This is a dangerous situation. You need to get it to a repair shop pronto.

Rebuilding brake cylinders is not a normal do it yourself job. Leave this to a pro.

Broken Brake line


It's the same as any other car or truck. Simply cut the rubber off & there's a nut,like any other brake line. Loosen the lines as you would for any job. Now you say the lines are rusted,if they're that bad then you'll need to replace them from front to rear. This requires a tubing bender(hand held) & a doulble flare tool & unions. You can forget about that "expensive" part. It's a brake balance controler & never goes bad.
