Hi!
From your brief description it would appear you need to have your brakes serviced immeadiatly and I would suggest NOT using the vehicle until you do.
The screech is the sound made by Metal to Metal contact in the braking system and could be very dangerous, the Brakes have Disc pads which when applied push together against a disc/rotor and therefore slows your vehicle down as you apply them.
Over time these pads wear out and the surface then becomes Metal, so now when you apply the brakes you are in fact wearing through the discs/rotors as well and reducing severely the braking efficiency/safety of your vehicle.
Continuing to do so will damage these components so much that the whole braking system will fail or need to be replaced.
I would be very very cautious if you intend driving this vehicle.
I hope this helps, please remember to rate my effort?

My scenic megane will start but only if clutch pedal is depressed (not brake pedal), and as soon as brake is applied when running, it stops. What is the matter with it?


Sounds like you have a standard transmission if it has a clutch.
Start requires the clutch to be pressed in for safety reasons.
If you have it in gear when you press the break the engine
will stall without your feathering the clutch. Sounds like you may not have learned how to drive a standard transmission car yet.
Otherwise there's a short between the clutch safty switch and the brake light circuit.

1996 Buick Park Avenue Ultra making a hissing noise when I press Brake Pedal. Have to Press super hard to stop or slow down.


Sounds like a possible air pocket in the braking system. Do you know how the bleed the brakes? They may need to be bled. Also, if you've added brake fluid recently, and didn't put the cap back on, it could create a suction. Another note is to check the cap to the brake fluid reservoir. It's rare, but, it could be bad.

My brakes randomly lock up on my 2004 chevorlet impala


If your brakes were "locking up" as you describe, it would be interesting to see. Brakes rarely self-apply. Lockup may occur after you apply the brakes as they may stick and won't release, but to have them just apply while driving is almost impossible. What you are describing sounds more to me like a massive vacuum leak. What this will do is reduce intake vacuum and steal all the power from the engine, and the brake pedal will go stiff as a result of the power brake booster losing its vacuum assist. You need to find the source of the vacuum leak and correct it.

Will clunk hard when accelerating slowly, and then


Is the clunk noticed as soon as the brake pedal is released? Your brake shoes engage in the rear drum when the brake pedal is pressed and then release as the brake pedal is released. Your shoes may be worn and might be "hanging up" for a brief period, that would make a clunk sound your describing

Spongy brakes


working on a similar problem myself , if vehicle equipped with rear anti lock brakes , look into the rabs module along the frame with all the lines going to it.. deposits have possibly gotten into the dump valve, have read tapping on it may revive it.

Brake problem (squishy sound)


A sound like that that you can hear inside has to be the vacumn assist tank leaking air. Did you bleed the new master cyl ?

Hissing sound from brake pedal of Renault Scenic 2001


Hi,
From your description this appears to be a Brake servo issue.
The brakes are assisted by a vacuum created from the draw off the inlet manifold, it gives assistance too the brake pedal pressure by a large tank/cylinder mounted on the Bulkhead/firewall.
I feel that the sound you a hearing is air being draw into the Brake Servo from the foot pedal seal and the reason for fluctuation in the engine is the vacuum from the inlet manifold is being upset.
Attention I suspect should be addressed to the Brake servo/pedal seal or gaitor.
I hope this clarifies your thoughts?
Please remember to rate my effort.
