It's not cheap.... i'd suggest that they bleed the air from the brake system first... does the abs chatter or is the light on ?

Car shakes badly


Front rotors are warped, you need to have them resurfaced, or get new ones and id suggest replacing the brake pads.

1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

Brakes uneven and jerky


this could just be "sticky pads" or there worn right down to there limit
you still need to strip the brakes out to check them out,,if there sticky put some copper grease on the back of the brake pads,,not on the brake pads!!!! only the backs fo them this stops then sticking and also from squealing,,

Yes sounds like serious problem, especially the harder to stop, If you mean the car just isn't stopping as fast and included with the pedal getting closer to the floor sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. Might be leaking from a line maybe the master cylinder or caliper or wheel cylinder, any which way probably should get checked out.

What tool do I use to change brake pads


Use proper sized socket to take out 2 bolts holding caliper on. Lift caliper up to remove. Open brake reservoir top and use old pad and large c-clamp to compress cylinder back in fully. Put squeek-stop on back of new pads and install the way you took them off. Remember where the wear bar on the pad was.Little metal tab on pad. Bolt it back on and you should be good to go. Shouldn't have to bleed system.

Brakes are burning up


Check the rubber brake hoses. Many times they internally fail and prevent calipers from releasing.

Sounds like a bad master cylinder. Possibly a bad power booster with the leak you are describing. Check for leaks in lines/hoses/wheel cylinders as well.

You could find the part for a lot less than a thousand dollars but you're talking about the dealership here. If you're not sure how hard it is to replace please take the car to a reputable mechanic, as the ABS is a safety control feature and if you and your friend install it incorrectly then you may have an accident in which you or someone else may be seriously hurt and it would be your own fault. On a lighter note check that you have the correct level of brake fluid and that all your brake pads have sufficient lining on them, bleed your brake lines of air as this will cause the pedal problem that you described.
