Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have had terrible brake problems since I bought the 2001 chevy cavalier, had brakes replaced 4 times...last yr replaced rotor and pads for $500 bucks...now my ABS light is on with the repair wrench service symbol, also my "Trac off" light is on...the brakes pulsate, stick and also slide when I put the brakes on, very hard to describe (not just when it's raining...scary
Any advice is greatly appreciated on how to deal with this...I also had the ABS lights reset and they went back on....the problem is getting worse. I don't want to pay a lot to fix this but want to be safe driving.
You don't say what brakes.
I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.
Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.
My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.
You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.
