Question about 1988 Toyota Camry
When I apply the brakes there isn't any noise but it feels like the car isnt going to stop and it takes a lot longer to stop
This is most dangerous for you. I think that your power brake boost has failed, possibly due to a split vacuum hose. You can test this...
With the engine off, pump the brake pedal hard a few times. Then press down hard on the pedal and start the engine. You should feel the pedal sink perceptibly under your foot.
If this seems OK then your brake pads may be down to the metal on one or more wheels even though you here no noise. Remove the front wheels and have a look, as on p22 here (a later model).
If the pedal feels spongy underfoot, and you can get better brakes by pumping the pedal vigorously, then there is air in the brake system, and it will need to be bled, as on p9

your brakes will function normally, you just will not have abs until you solve the problem, the most common solution is a wheel speed sensor, if you can get the codes from the abs computer, it generally will tell you which one is faulty. If you can't get codes try unpligging each sensor and replugging them. could just be a bad sensor. Hope this helps!

Check your brake hardwares make sure its in proper places and not loose. you would also want to check the caliper sliders, clean and lubricate with silicon lube. and lastly make sure that rotor backplates are not touching the rotors, you can do this by spinning the rotors while the wheel is off, if it is, then pry the backplates a little. hope this would help, goodluck.!

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..
