Im driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M> I just had the break done and know I'm hearing a hissing noise when I break. What could this be and will it be very expensive to fix?

First, your question has to be translated. Do you mean brake(s)?

If so, and the person who did the brake job resurfaced the rotors, then you're probably hearing the pad lining rubbing the rough rotor surface when you apply the brakes. This is because the machines they use to resurface the rotors don't put the same smooth finish on them like a new one has. The rough surface in contact with the pad lining will make a noticeable sound until the rotors are burnished (worn smooth) from use.

On a side note: It's really not a very good idea to resurface brake rotors. They end up thinner, which makes heat dissapation more difficult. Rotors aren't that expensive. It's always best to replace them rather than resurfacing them.

How to stop the squeaking in the rear of my jeep?

The noise could be connected to the parking brake, or it could be a loose brake pad. When you engage the brakes the pads strike the rotors and then can not move around.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied

This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

Thanks for your answer. I am wondering though. If my car was shuddering prior to my replacing the pads and rotors and the shuddering occured only when applying the brakes and usually happened when I braked...

Take a look at all the rotors now since you have replaced them. If you notice any unusal wear on one or more rotors, then i would say either the rotor is defective or the brake caliper is at fault. Even with new rotors it does not mean that they are perfect. They may be out of round or they was cut wrong. The problem would even get worse with a caliper piston trying to stick from time to time. Take a little time and inspect each roter inside and out for any kind of unusal wear. Hope this will help you.

Rear brake noise after brake replacement

probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.

scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.

but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.

I have been changed the new rear brake pad but it still make noise/gnashing sound when apply to it. Changed the rotors last year! Please help! thank in advance

depending on the climate where you live, and the quality of the rotors you installed, the noise could definitely be the rotors. run your hand along BOTH sides of the rotors, they should be smooth and have no rust on the pad to rotor contact area. look closely at the inward side of the rotor, it tends to rust on that side the fastest. also, ensure that the brake pad abutment hardware is in place and not contacting the rotor.

When I apply the brakes on my 2001 GMC youkon about 2/3rds of the time I hear a grinding type noise that I can feel in the brake pedal. The truck stops fine the pads rotors etc. all look good. Any ideas?

When you say the pads and rotors look good, did you actually remove the wheels and check them? A lot of times the outside pad will look ok, but the inside pad can be right down to the metal backing plate. If you can get under the truck, run your finger across the rotors on the inside of the rotor. It should feel smooth. If it feels rough, the inside pad is gone. There really isnt any other reason you would both hear and feel grinding in the brakes.

When at higher speeds and when I brake the stearing wheel shakes. Why?

warped rotors. it is caused by braking too much and the metal rotors heat up and warp. nothing to be concerned about but is also a simple fix. change the rotors.

1994 Honda Accord- squeaky brakes

Could just be cheap brake pads. If you don't want to squeal, get a good quaility brake pad, and make sure the rotors are smooth.
