SOURCE: 1998 honda civic front rotor replacement

Varvah, front rotor: Jack up the car, put on safety stands, remove wheel, remove caliper mounting bolts (2), hang caliper in place w/ bungy cord, rope, etc. so you don't stress the brake line, remove caliper mounting bracket bolts, remove bracket from rotor, remove retaining screws on the front of the rotor, remove rotor. If it's stuck, get 2 - 8x 1.25 mm screws (longer version of what u removed), tighten them in the rotor, they will push it off easily. Reverse to install, tighten bracket to 80 ft lbs, caliper to 20 ft lbs. Let me know if u need more info. Countrycurt0

2002 chevy trailblazer front brakes activating while driving


check the clearance of the brake pedal rod into the master cylinder. Should be about 1" movement before the rod moves the piston .
The master cylinder has a blockage in the compensating ports so replace the master cylinder. As the brake oil is heating from brake application, it is not getting back to the reservoir so it is pressing the pads back onto the rotors which is heating the oil even more.

Burning smell from drivers side rear wheel


This happens often on Fieros. It turns out that the clamp that holds the brake hose rusts. The rust presses against the hose, restricting it's flow. You don't notice when the brakes are worn and basically not working, but after repairs you get locked up or overheated brakes. Remove or replace clamp and or hose.

When i press my brakes my wheel shakes, what is this problem?


The brake rotors are warped. This is a common occurrence. It can be caused by numerous things; excessive rotor wear (too thin), uneven brake pad wear, sticky brake calipers, riding the brake pedal causing excessive heat buildup in the rotors, and over-torque of lug nuts are just a few causes. Having the rotors checked and re-machined may help, but normally they require replacement. If you replace rotors, it is advisable to replace the brake pads at the same time to avoid a poor wear pattern.

Need to repace front brakes and rotors, the car only has 31000 miles on it!!


The brake pads are well within a good long life. Brake wear life depends on a number of factors, the most significant is the driver. Most people feel that they are easy on brakes and that is usually not true...

Rotors are damaged by: normal wear; waiting too long for pads and damage from metal to metal contact; and HEAT. Heat damages rotors and causes them to warp. Cars now days have less material on the rotors and therefore they have shorter life.

On some vehicles it is only slightly more to replace rotors, versus resurfacing them. A resurfaced rotor has less material, so warping happens faster.....Some shops just routinely replace rotors, rather than resurface for just this reason.

Other shops routinely replace calipers, which can be agrued either way, but a caliper that hangs slightly will cause rotor warp. My preference is to replace calipers when they need it, by leaking or binding....

After a head gasket replacement the car is burning oil on 3 cylinders i was told the oil rings may be stuck from when it overheated and to drive it to see if it clears up. is this possible


Anything is possible but I think it more likely that your rings where damaged when the engine got hot.Rings have a great deal of spring to them which holds them out against the cylinder wall. Drive it for a couple of weeks to see if it clears up and then do a compression test.Don't forget that oil also has to get past the compression rings as well before it can be burned.I've got my fingers crossed for you.Good Luck

Premature brake wear on my 2005 Honda Civic


What it sounds like is you have very poor quality pads on the car. The subject of brake pads can go on for days. If it was me I would buy a top of the line name brand pads , if the rotors can be turned the turn them or replace them. Also struts and shocks that are old affect the brakes and stopping distance. I think someone has just sold you poor quality brakes. and if your rotors are warpped this will cause the wiggle you feel when stopping.

Front end vibration


We're on our second Sedona and have had this problem on both. In our case it was the front brake rotors. The dealer told me that they're not made thick enough to handle heat loads. They are super-sensitive to heating and warp easily.

With my Sedonas the pads were not retracting completely, sometimes dragging on the rotors (not enough to notice this while driving) causing them to heat even when the brakes were not being applied and causing this front end shaking in the steering wheel when braking. When it got worse, the brake pedal would vibrate too. When we would take it up the mountains the long braking periods on the downslopes would make it much worse as the rotors heated up. The dealership had them machined but the issue persisted and ended up replacing the front rotors.

Replacing rotors is not a difficult task if you're mechanically-inclined and have the right tools. I've done it on many vehicles (though not my Sedonas as they were warranty jobs) and it's usually less expensive to replace them with new ones from your parts store than to have a brake shop work on them.

Hope this helps.
