Rear brakes moan on 2003 Chevrolet venture van

Both brakes moan whenever I hit the brakes. It is very loud and happens everytime I put the brakes on. I have never had them replaced. I have about 70,000 miles on them. Someone told me that she heard that they need to be power washed every so often. That seems like an easy fix, but I'm not sure if I believe it. Any help would be much appreciated...

    I believe they are drum brakes on the rear of these vans....would that make any difference in the mileage put on them for changing them?

Replace them.Ask your friends for recommendations on trusted mechanics or shops, then get them done. 70000 miles is more than enough for a stock set of brake pads.

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running


Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.

Help! My parked venture van alarm goes off whenever a motorcycle,heavy trucks or any noisy car passes by beside it. How can it be fixed?


had our van for 8 years, it did the same thing when a loud vibration triggered the sense alarm. Pretty bad when it went off while in church. Never happened while parked in garage at house though. Could be sensor is worn out and needs replaced.

A light came on in my van it is the (P)with an!mark right above it,I know it is the emerg brake light but my brakes seem to be fine, and the light will come on then go off etc...it has happened a few times...


This may indicate that your rear brakes are wearing out.

Go somewhere and have the rear brakes checked for run out.

Rear brake service is usually reasonably priced. Your van is old enough that it might be overdue for new shoes and some drum machining.

Good luck and be careful.

2003 Chev Venture Van Moaning Noise


hi from uk from your symptoms re moaning frm drivers side ? assume front?? best advice at this stage is to raise the front wheel and check for any undue wear in the wheel bearing by rocking the wheel top and bottom there should not be any tilting of wheel ? also make sure the wheel is free to rotate with no noise /roughness if so ? then you have a front wheel bearing failing however whilstyou check drivers side? also check the other wheel for same and it would be a good idea to check brake pads for wear during checks as you can do these if/when it becomes apparent the wheel bearing req's attention? all the above is subject to assuming you have checked tyres and pressures are correct ? you could pop car into local tyre depot and they could do checks on above for a quick diagnosis? hope this help check it out ASAP as this could be serious best wishes

Right rear is making a sound of medal scraping medal. I believe it maybe the wheel bearings.


If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.
