SOURCE: feels like the brake is always on & gains no speed

When was the last time you open the transmission ? Is it a standard, or automatic transmission ? When was the last time you change your breaks ? Jack the wehicle up, and try to turn the tires with your hand. your breaks might be too tight.

Brakes fail traveling at15/20m makes a grinding sound, but brakes ok at speed.


A grinding sound usually suggests metal to metal contact but, as you say, you have changed the pads and disks.

What springs to mind is that that the brake backing plate - the metal disk on the inboard side - are being touched by the spinning disk, or the noise is being caused by a driveshaft or bearing.

However, there are other possibilities. Are there any shims in your braking system? Shims hold the pads in place and stop squeal/rattle.

It also could be that the pads are not being fully released from the disk when the brake pedal is pressed. Depending on your calliper set up it may be something as simple as a slide that is sticking and needs cleaning.

Brake pads are released from the disk by what is nothing more than the spinning of the disk 'knocking' things back. Assisted by rubber sleeves on 'slide pins'. Something may be sticking and need cleaning and a smear of copper grease added.

It would be too easy to say that you have a vacuum leak (or internal seal) problem in the brake servo. A servo problem usually results in a 'hard' brake pedal at all speeds. You don't have this problem.

It may well be that your brakes feel 'spongy' at low speeds because the pads are not being shoved back from the disk because of sticking slides (depending on your system).

It also may be that the pistons in your calliper are sticking.

You obviously can work on cars and use tools - consider overhauling your brake callipers (look on Ebay for overhaul kits) but bear in mind that doing this also means you have to bleed the brakes.

1986caravan want gain speed


when caravans have been stood over winter try not to leave it with the hand brake on. if it has been stood with it on then you willhave to release the brakes yourself. it could be dragging because of this. do the wheels get hot after a run ? that will point to brake pads stuck on. get under and bang the drums with a hammer to release them

Either brakes stick or trans is not down shifting when i come to a stop there is a noise and thud when i release the brakes and push the accelerater it seems to shift fine while driving


COMPLETELY SAFE: put up on lift or raise off ground with stands with enough room to get under then have someone do the gear shifting going to speed that causes the thud ,let driver(person in car)tell you when brakes are applied so you're ready then see where noise comes from;could be transmission?????

Rear brakes on my 1999 sunfire stick and don't release after stopping. What is the problem???


Check your rear calipers (actuator calipers - the parking brake side will stick and will cause them not to release!)

Brakes do not want to release as quickly as they should


It is likely a bad brake hose. Jack up the wheels and have someone push the pedal. Have your helper release the pedal and see which brake doesn't release right when the pedal is released.
