Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

Rusted Brake Lines

I have a 1992 park avenue and at least one or two of the brake lines are corroded, causing a leak. Is this a problem I should take to a mechanic or is this an easy fix?

    Unless you know how to bleed the air from brakes and have someone to help you do so , it is a garage repair.

Yes pi is avery serious problem. If you are unfamiliar with shaping steel lines and double-flaring steel lines, leave it to a pro. After repairs are completed, brake system will need to be bled of air . Hope this helps

How do i bleed a 1996 buick park avenue

Right rear first, do with engine running. LF next. left rear to right front. you may need to manually reset the proportional valve located under master cylinder. your brake lines go to this first before heading to the wheels, one side will have a rubber protector on it push it in to reset it.

Well my e brake light wont shut off it dings and wont caused my brakes to hit the floor and its hard to brake when driving.

you have a problem with the brake system. it could be a broken line, bad wheel cylinder etc. this will cause brakes to go all the way to the floor. that is probably why light is on. also check condition of brakes. have a good day !!

No brakes I think the booster was going out because my peddle got soft but would still stop me then i changed my brake pads shortly after the brakes completly went out and can now only stop with the...

The problem is not the booster, the job of the booster is to make braking easier. If the booster went out the brakes would be hard to press.
Your soft pedal is likely due to air in the brake lines. Bleed the brakes and go from there.

There are no leaks and the brake fluid is full the pads are good but the brake pedal goes to the floor and pumping is required and doesn't want to stop the car.

If you're POSITIVE you don't have any rusted brake lines, I would first bleed all the brakes to get rid of air in the lines. If not, the master cylinder cap may not be sealed correctly. They are cheap to replace and available at any auto parts store. If you still have the problem, your brake calipers could be going bad, letting air in and possibly fluid out of the piston(s) while moving. Your ABS system might be to blame (if equipped) but highly doubtful. Hope this helps.

Rear brake line started leaking

yes, i agree. you must replace the brake line. i replaced all the brake lines in mine. it was not that bad. the line was cheap but the fittings from the dealer was pricey. if you can save your it. no problems with brakes since. you will need a flairing tool and pipe cutter. hope this helps
