I have a 1999 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 and it's makes a humming sounds from the front every time I try and put on breaks


Hi Kenneth:
If this problem has only started since the brakes were serviced, I would be suspicious that they may not have been bled. That would mean there may be air in some of the brake lines or cylinders. When you push on the brake pedal, does it feel "HARD" or "SPONGY" ? Spongy would make me more suspicious of air in the lines..
Cheerfuls.

Brakes are spongy


Did you also bleed the rear brakes? Also try the gravity bleed method working from the right rear wheel, then left rear, right front, then left front. Be SURE to keep the master cylinder full at all times while bleeding.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado, the front left brakes keep getting stuck and i just change caliper for the second time so i know its not that.


It may be a bad rubber brake line that connects to that caliper, preventing brake fluid from exiting the caliper. Older rubber brake lines can collapse internally and prevent fluid passing through. If the rubber feels spongy, it needs replacing.

Break alarm goes off when I take anything more than a slight right turn.


Not real sure. If there's nothing wrong with your brakes or your emergency brake then I would probably say it something electrical.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

2002 camry breaks


take off brake caliper, take off your brake pads. check the sliders. sliders are on the side of the bracket. see if they are moving freely in and out. im pretty sure they are seized. that's why your pedal is soft and sinks down really fast when applied.
