Make sure rear brakes are adjusted, 90% of brake pedal height relies on rear brake adjustment.

Fluid is leaking on all four wheels. 2006 GS300


Check your brake fluid reservoir if you are low. Other than that, the only parts with fluid are the shocks.

Brake pedal went out on me going about 65 on the highway, was able to pump enough to get it under control. Brake company said brakes and diaphragn were fine, needed new master cylinder. Brakes went out...


it sounds like you've got an issue with the engine vacume line going to the booster. there's an in line one way check valve that keeps vacume in the booster in case of a loss of vacume, like if your truck stalled while driving. but there should always be vacume with the engine running. so check the vacume line going to the brake booster for kinks obstructions, and leaks.

Electric trailer brakes are kicking out due to anti-lock brakes


The ABS will shut off the trailer brakes if it detects a problem. It sounds as if the problem is in the ABS control unit, or the trailer brakes may not be grabbing hard enough causing the trailer to push the truck when you are attempting to stop. This sometimes can be corrected by adjusting the gain up on the trailer brakes.

Poor gas milage


Check that your brakes aren't dragging (have them inspected), that the parking brake isn't partly on. Tires properly inflated? How's your air filter? Do the cheap, easy things first. Take the keys away from your teen-age son.

I have a Chevy Silverado 4 door Duramex diesel truck with 82,000 miles. Brakes seem fine, but usually when does a truck like this need new brakes?


You might find info on this in the owner's manual -- but I'd say 65k miles would be a good lifetime for a set of brake pads/shoes. I would say it's time to check them.

1998 chevy C-1500 brake problems


Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
Good luck!

1995 gmc 4x4 tbi/1/2 ton


I had a problem with the brakes on my 2005 GMC that significantly increased the fuel consumption. The calipers for the disk brakes were not moving freely and were causing the brake pad on one side to always contact the rotor. This problem is easily found by checking for heated brakes after a short drive or by coasting to a stop to see if the truck rolls easily without power.
