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

  • Ok-
    Could be out of adjustment or you may have a broken spring on the inside.
    (Spring would pull the shoes away... which if it is broken... would cause the sticking)- not likely if it is BOTH sides.

    Has anyone replaced the master cylinder or brake booster recently?

1999 sunfire replaced left rear brake line now i can not get fluid to rear brake lines


There is probably an air bubble in there.
Get a partner to push on the pedal as you simultaneously open up the bleeder screw.

One shouldn't have to use the abs brake bleeding procedure if no air got into the abs braking master cylinder area.

Keep trying to manually bleed the air out of the brake line. May have to tilt the car backwards to get the fluid to drip out by itself,
although air in the line can sometimes be difficult to get out after changing the rear brake line.

Good luck on this repair.

When I apply the brakes(front disc/rear drum) on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire, it makes a popping sound with a shake.


The brakes themselves would not likely be the cause of a popping sound, but the problem may only show up during braking. The shake could be from loose steering parts or from distorted rotors. Rotors get quite hot during braking, and the faster you drive and the harder you stop the more heat they have to take. Have the brakes inspected by a qualified brake technician. (A lot of shops offer free brake inspections.) A tech will also note problems with the steering parts connected. Give the tech as much info as possible - does it happen during turns, only when braking, when accelerating, etc. The more information you supply the better the chance of catching the problem.

2004 honda crv brake won't release


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.
