SOURCE: Brake pedal goes too far

You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid

SOURCE: Hard Brake pedal in '93 Dodge Caravan

Is the engine also running poor such as tries to stall or the RPM is high? Is there an unusual suction type sound? Check the vacum hose to the brake booster, if loose, cracked or a hole in it.
This is about a 1/2" diameter hose and goes to the booster from the engine for power brake assist.

SOURCE: squishy brake feel with long pedal travel but brakes stop the car

You have to remove the air trapped in the hydraulic system. Look at change of brakefluid in a repair handbook and perform it as described.

Useful to change the brakefluid at least once every five years anyway.

Testimonial: "Saved me time, money and most importantly, perhaps my life!"

SOURCE: How do you get the rear caliper to retract when

Need to buy a tool at auto parts store ,that
fits the rear caliper piston,so you can turn it
clockwise. ( Looks like a cube) $8.00

What your doing is actually turning in or back -- the
parking brake adjuster.

The tool will be turned with a 3/8" extension & ratchet

Opening the bleeder valve will help as you have to
push the piston in as well as turn it in.

Need to bleed all 4 wheels every 2 years anyway.

You may have to file the tool to get a combination
that will work
I had to do that with the Lincoln LS

Once the pads are on,you ratchet up the parking
brake,bringing the pads in contact with the rotors.

Press the brake pedal a few times before going into
rev or drive, to seat pads

The notch on the caliper piston, goes to the top
so the pin on pads will fit

My 2007 Lincoln MKZ gear shifter is getting stuck in park and comes out after trying a little while, not every time but its increasing more and more.


On your vehicle there is a shifter interlock system ,it's a safety feature . Doesn't allow shifter to be put into gear if your foot isn't on the brake pedal .

My 2007 Lincoln MKZ will not go in gear . Everything else is working fine what could be the problems?


Most newer vehicles have a safety feature which prevents shifting out of park if the brake pedal is not engaged. If you are holding the brake pedal down and still won't shift into gear, this pedal sensor could be malfunctioning.

I have a Lincoln mkz 2008. sometimes I have to double pump my breaks to put my car in drive


Replace the brake pedal sensor, located under the dash on the brake pedal arm. It may be defective, causing the transmission linkage to remain in the locked park position until you jolt it by double pumping the pedal.

2007 MKZ key turns but shift lever stuck in park


Next to the shift lever is a small square cap flush with the console pry it up and out with a small screw driver. Under the cap is a button, push it down and put the car into gear. This will get you going, finding out the cause is another problem, a blown fuse can cause the problem or a broken neutral safety switch (located above the break pedal) or as in my case none of the above, it just kept working after that. Good luck.

Where can i find my 2007 lincoln mkz default door code


There is a tag to the right side of the fuse box behind the emergency brake lever. You will have to remove the plastic cover by sliding the latch back first. I just purchased a 2007 MKX and had the same issue. The 5 digit code was there and worked perfectly.
