Hissing sound brake related

hissing sound is a vacuum leak somewhere on the power assist part of the system as in a bad booster..try this test..with the car off..push the brake pedal down a few times and release all the vacumm and see how far the pedal goes down..after a few pumps with your foot it should become hard and drop just a bit..once it feels"solid' or hard..hold the pedal down with moderate pressure.. and start the car back up..the pedal should drop a bit further but less than halfway.. if it drops further it needs attention..good luck especially if it goes almost to the floor..

No brakes pedal goes all way to floor and jerks

sounds like a bad master cylinder, bad wheel cylinder or broken brake line
if your not a good mechanic get one brakes are not what a beginner should learn on or at least go and buy a repair manual for your car at any auto parts store for about $20.00 remember safety first.

I drive a 1995 Cadillac Seville SLS. My brakes have become unresponsive. they feel stiff, and I have to put both feet on the brakes and stand on it to slow the vehicle. pressing the brakes is...

I wouldn't install a used brake booster,but you could

You don't need instructions & a list of tools

If you & your friend together need that,you shouldn't
be doing that job

You will find 4 nuts in plain site, on the firewall holding it on.
You know enough to remove the brake tubing on the master
& can unbolt it ,to swap to different booster. Not sure
you can leave the brake lines in place until you try removing
the booster.

Before you do all that ,remove & check out the vacuum
check valve on the booster with the hose going to it

They are a somewhat common replaced item. You may
only get a couple in your life time,but they do fail somewhere
every day.

My 1984 Ford rangers Emergency brake will not go down. It feels as if it is stuck in place and I need to fix it for it to pass inspection

Your emergency brake wires are rusted and need to be replaced. While you have the rear wheels off it won't hurt to clean and lube the mechanical brake parts.

My parking brake release is broken. I cannot release the parking brake. How do I fix it?

For the time being, you can crawl down under the dash, follow the parking brake cable and see where it connects to the brake mechanism under the dash. You will be able to pull or pry on that part in order to release the parking brake. To replace, remove the cable from the points where it's attached (dash, brake release mechanism) and reinstall the new one.

97 maxima brake pulseing problem.

I will assume that it is not the ABS kicking in and that you get this pulsing when just slowing down and not jumping hard on the brakes. An unevenly worn or warped brake disc (rotor) or drum is the cause of most pulses felt back through the brake pedal when slowing down. The main cause for warping is due part of the brake mechanism having seized so just changing the disc or drum might only 'cure' the the immediate problem in the short term only to have it return in a few months time. A seizure on one corner of the car usually indicates that all the brake mechanicals could well benefit from a timely inspection and overhaul. Most of brake's assemblies only move a fraction when operating, such as the pistons in the callipers moving a tiny distance to apply the pads to the discs. Corrosion of parts will eventually stop this restricted range of movement. It is a dirty job and not one of my favourites but when I overhaul these items I do it wheel by wheel stripping everything from each hub. I make sure that every part is cleaned, that every joint and piston is forced repeatedly through its full range of movement to remove any restrictions and then I lubricate, where needed, with 'copper-ease' grease.

The emissions test may vary from one state to the next. For example in NY the 1990 model would not have to have an emissions test, which for newer vehicles is part of the Inspection.
The safety inspection includes:
front and rear brakes
parking brake for a manual tranny
All lights on vehicle, turn signals, brake lights
Horn needs to work
Wipers need to work
Tires need to have adequate tread
Any cracks in glass (windshield) need to be within safety limits
on older vehicles, mechanic may also look at steering linkage, brake lines for severe corrosion.
And basically any malfunction or damage to the vehicle that would place it in an unsafe condition. That could anything from a bumper that's ready to fall off to a gas leak at the gas tank.

What all do i need to replace seeing how i bent my control arm and my tie rod i dont the names of the other parts.... but i need help

You'll need to replace your drive axle, your control arm, the knuckle, ball joints, brake rotors, brake calipers if necessary, change out the brake pads while you're down there too. If you're not too keen on what you want to purchase and can't really do it yourself, take it to a certified mechanic.

If you want more help, i.e. purchasing parts online and taking it to your local mechanic shop; send me a message to -- for a small fee I'll help you find your parts.

Emergency brake pedal will not stay down when i press it.

The parking brake actuator (the mechanism you press with your foot) works like a ratchet wrench. The pedal has a cresent shaped plate with teeth on it. It pivots on a mounting plate. There is a pawl with a small spring also on the backing plate. This pawl engages the teeth on the pedal assembly to hold the brake engaged (against the large return spring).
Stick your head under the dash and look carefully at the parking brake actuator mechanism. See why the pawl is not engaging the teeth on the pedal assembly. Most likely causes are that the release mechanism is jammed "on" or that the light spring which attaches to the pawl is missing (usually from being kicked by some one with large feet) View this mechanism on another GM vehicle with the same style parking brake if you suspect that parts are missing.
