When you say brakes checked by mechanic, I trust he has done the following:

-Spun the rotor around with a dial gauge against it to measure runout

-Measured the thickness of the rotor to ensure all is in spec

-Checked that there is no wheel bearing play or worn associated steering components

-Inspected the caliper slides and pad holder section for anything not as per normal

-visually inspected the rotors for hot spots/uneven surface appearance ( I have seen rotors where the hardness of the metal has varied across the surface)

-Checked wheel alignment and balance - rare for this to be a cause, but when combined with one of the above issues, can be a significant contributing factor

SOURCE: noisey brakes kia sportage

On assembly of disc brakes there is an anti vibration silicone place on the back of the brake pads. The two surfaces rubbing togerher at a centain speed creates a high frequency vibration that at first is above your hearing range at the higher soeed you are slowing dow from. A the speed of the rotor rotation decreases, the frequency vibratio changes and the frequency falls with audible range. Like wiping a piece of glass with a paper towel. Ever wonder why paper and glass would screech?
The sound goes away with harder application because you are actuallly dampening/altering the frequency out of the range of irritability.This dampening compound is used in assembly at the factory and needs to be applied to the brake disc metal side when new pads are installed. This ultra sound is coming or caused by the brake psd that is against the caliper piston. This is because the pad against the piston has more center pressure than full surface pressure as the pad hasand any vibration is telegraphed th to Caliper. The compound I mentioned is a silicone that actually absobs and dampens vibrations when it dries. A rubber (siliucone) vibration sponge. Alot of mechanics, but not all, will leave this compound out of the assembly because it just another step and a messy one to boot, Or to put it plainly, laziness and the lack of knowledge of purpose and importance> Good Luck, having the pads replaced and properly installed will get rid of your screeching.-Ned-

SOURCE: how much is it to replace brake pads on a 2000 kia

Are you going to install them are you taking it to a repair shop? Pads shouldn't cost too much to buy, but paying the shop to do it can raise above $500.

SOURCE: 2000 Kia Sportage Losing brake fluid. Is it a big

No it is not that big of a deal. It is normally 2-3 nuts and your brake lines. The things to make sure of is that brake fluid does not get on any of the electronics below the cylinder by using a towel. Also make sure to bleed the cylinder before hooking the brake lines in all the way. Basically you can do this by screwing in the brake lines about half way and hitting the brake pedal about half way down. Make sure the reservoir does not get empty. Bleed it until there is nothing but fluid coming out of both lines. Obviously this is best done with two people. Have them hold the pedal down while you tighten the lines fully and you should be good.

2002 dodge durango 2wd. brakes squeal when braking. i have had rotors and pads replaced.


There are 3 to 4 different compositions of brake pads--some are softer--others are ceramic or metallic---probably you have gotten metallic---which do have a history of squealing much of the time. therefore, check to see if that is what you purchased--if so--there is no mechanical problem. However--a tip--especially in colder, salt-using, (on streets)climates. Lubricate the brake rotor sliders with grease twice a year so they don't stick.

Brake light on console will not go out, plenty of fluid.


Check the fluid sensor inside the fluid or on lid. How are the brakes. Are they normal. Did you check the brake pads or brakes visually.?

Hi I put new brake pads on front disc of my 1997 kia sportage added brake fluid put back together , now when i apply the brakes it is making a screeching noise what could i have done wrong Thanks John


did u checked the disc? was is flat and nice? or did it had scratches along the diameter of the disc? the pads need very flat rotors for them to work,
it can be that the pads are too flat and hard because they are brand new and the disc may be deformed...have them checked
hope this helps

Losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)


Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.


I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were.  He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well.  If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied.  It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well.  That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly.  All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it.  Who wants to mess with safety right?  Good luck, hope this helps!
