No, but it is best to bleed the brake lines to remove any air that was let in during the brake pad installation.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brake pedal went out on me going about 65 on the highway, was able to pump enough to get it under control. Brake company said brakes and diaphragn were fine, needed new master cylinder. Brakes went out...


it sounds like you've got an issue with the engine vacume line going to the booster. there's an in line one way check valve that keeps vacume in the booster in case of a loss of vacume, like if your truck stalled while driving. but there should always be vacume with the engine running. so check the vacume line going to the brake booster for kinks obstructions, and leaks.

Anti-lock light comes on.


I had the same problem on my 2000 Blazer usually when I made a slow turn. I had the ABS system disconnected, you don't need it here in NY, problem solved. You won't notice any braking change except on snow and ice you'll get normal braking not the ABS back and forth. It took just a few minutes and the mechanic didn't charge me. The light will stay on but it still passes inspection. Hope this helps.

Brakes


Don't wait until the last moment to put your brakes on. When you know you're going to have to stop, get off the gas and LIGHTLY, apply the brakes to start the slow down process. Putting a lot of pressure on the brakes to stop a vehicle causes them to wear out. I normally get about 80,000 from a set of brakes. I've been driving this way since 1970.

Brake fluid leaking


It looks a faulty brake pump, to check it- have some one else with you to watch the pump fluid while you are pumping the brake pedal, if there is an air bubble come up the fluid then you should change the brake pump or kit.

Rear brakes grabbing on 95 Corsica


Itcould be that the brakes installed on your car were not the Original Manufaturers (OEM) recommended pads and/or shoes on the back and front. Or only two of the brakes were replaced. when installing breaks install the OEM's or original breaks for your Corsica.
If a given set of replacement linings are more aggressive than the original, the brakes may feel grabby or upset front-to-rear brake balance increasing the risk of the front or rear brakes locking up on wet or slick roads especially if the more aggressive linings end up on the back brakes. On the other hand, if the replacement linings are less aggressive than the original linings or have less fade resistance, the vehicle may require increased pedal effort and take longer to stop than before. And if these linings end up on the front brakes, they may increase the risk of rear wheel lockup, too.
