    Well definitely stop driving the car, it's obviously not safe. It either has air in the system, a leak or a bad master cylinder. I suggest getting it towed to a qualified mechanic if you are unfamiliar with braking systems.

IT COULD BE A LEAK SOMEWHERE IN THE LINES. LOOK FOR WETNESS ON OR AROUND THE WHEELS. I WOULD NOT DRIVE THIS CAR ANYWHERE UNTIL YOU FIND THE SOURCE OF THE BRAKE FAILURE. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS. IF THE FLUID IS LOW, THEN ALL OF THE AIR NEEDS TO BE BLED OUT OF THE LINES, AFTER THE LEAK IS FIXED. IF YOU ARE UNSURE, THEN HAVE IT LOOKED AT BY A PROFESSIONAL. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATINGAND FOR USING FIX-YA.

Hello first if you can'tell by the wording of the question I am about to ask I am a woman.. I have a 97 Neon and recently my car started making a noise now what I do know about neons is that the brakes...


Sounds like you know cars better than many others:) How old are your front brakes? Yes new brakes can make noise on any car if cheap parts or incomplete parts are used...Your brakes are actually designed to make noise when they are not right:) The squeal can be the front pads are worn down to the safety sensor...causing a grinding sound that comes and goes...as they continue to wear, they will squeal more frequently. Also as they become dirty...(bad weather) the dirt trapped on the pad to rotor contact area causes this same sound...sometimes a good automatic car wash can clear this up...as the rotors are wearing they can also generate noise, and vibration when you are stopping...The front brake pads and rotors are not complicated to change on your Neon...If you decide to replace the pads...the quietest and cleanest are the ceramic pads...These are available at most parts stores for good prices. Hope this helps:)

Inspite of changing new brake pads and the rotor of front and rear of the brake paddle gets harder and brake gets failed.please give me the solution or sujjestion


really dont understand what your saying but, i would look into the master cylinder as a failed diaphram vacuum. If your break pedal is real hard to push and you really dont have alot of beaking it is the master cylinder

I drive a Chevy Venture 2004. in the mornings, when I start up the engine, the brake pedal goes down when I push it. Sometimes, when I am driving slow and I push the brake, it goes down, more than normal....


first check brake fluid level
if fluid is low, this is a good indication that pads or shoes need replacing
check brake lings for wear
check that pcv valve from engine to brake booster is not clogged
to check this pull it out of valve cover and shake it
if it rattles it is good
if it dont rattle it is clogged,replace it
if pads and linings are good and no obvious signs of brake fluid leaking anywhere,(wheels cylanders etc>then the brake master cylander or brake booster is bad
more likely to be booster

Rear brakes screeches


you will be needing to replace the brake pads very soon. the pads have a metal tab mounted to them that will actually make contact with the brake rotor when the pads wear to a certain point...this makes a loud screech everytime you brake, and sometimes when you dont, to let the driver know that the brake pads are worn out.

Front brake pad light comes on, but the pads are new


It is not the brake computer. The front left inside brake pad is the noly pad with a sensor in it. If the light is on it is usually because the wire connector broke and is now causing an open signal, cauing the light in the cluster to come on. Remove the front left wheel. Remove the connector for the brake pad attached to the shock assembly. Check the terminals for corrosion. The pins must be clean and not blackend or green. The female side connector terminals must be straight and not widened. If you want to be sure you can do 1 of 2 things. Check the resistance of the the 2 pins going to the brake pad. It must be 0 resistance meaning not open. Or bypass the female connector temporarily with a paper clip or wire and start the car. If the light goes off it means the pad is the cause or the connector. I have often seen the wire still holding and not broken completely but when you remove the pad the ridge of the inside of the disk has worn the wire to the point where it broke prematurally. Sometimes just a light tug and it'll break.

Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag


i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably shoes..is it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together wrong..id say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!

Replace rear brake pads on a 2003 honda civic


break pads are easy to replace......this is what you should do

things you need: hex keys for if the bolts are socket like....or a good pair of plyers if they overlap.......

1. open you cars hood
2. remove the cap off you brake fluid reservoir.
get some fluid out of it first.
3. now its time to remove the tires.
4. ok look at the rotors and you should see the calipers.
5. its time to get the calipers out.
6. unscrew the bolts "there should be two only"
7. now that you have taken the calipers off take the break pads off aswell.
8. make shure you dont twist the hoses too much or they will break.
9. now its time to compress the caliper cylinders...
10. if you have a "c-****" get it out get one of you old break pads and place it on top of the cylinder, then get the c-**** on it and start twisting until it compreses back,"be careful not to go to far"
11. if you are successful compressing them...now its time to get the pads on.
12. make shure you put them right "the one that clips goes in the cylinder and the other one goes in at the front of the rotor.
13. dont missplace them or they will not work well.
14. if you are succesfull puting them back were they belong, now its time to get the calipers back on the rotor.

15. make shure that your calipers move freely, because if they dont them they will produce excessive friction and perhaps even rotor wear
16. its time to check the fluid. make shure you dont over fill just a little bit below max line is good. because as your brake wear and so will the fluid go down.

17. put tire on and start driving just a little bit...make shure that your brakes work and you should be good to go...

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
