You might find info on this in the owner's manual -- but I'd say 65k miles would be a good lifetime for a set of brake pads/shoes. I would say it's time to check them.

I get brake squeel that seems to be coming from the rear wheels. 08 GMC Canyon IL 5 3.7L 4WD. I was told that my brakes were most likely "glazed over"? I never had the problem with my old chevy...


Did you have drum brakes on your old silverado? Mine has them, and they aren't as prone to glazing as the newer trucks with disc brakes. Or if you are doing more towing now than you did your Silverado that will cause it also.

We have found that if we have some weight in the bed, we have less brake problems, but less gass mileage also. So you have to decide which you want to deal with.

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

My 1999 chevy silverado is cutting out and dying. i've changed the fuel filter, it ran fine about four miles then stalled and won't start.it will start and idle then seems to run out of gas.


Wouldn't happen to be a diesel, would it? If so, do a search on ebay for a remote fsd/pmd module. Fixed my 95 'rado (in less than 20 minutes) with a 6.5 turbo diesel -it would stall wherever and whenever it wanted, without warning.

The brakes will pulsate on dry pavement


Do you have rear disc brakes?If so .the problem is in the rear brakes.This can happen also with drum brakes,so have the rear checked also.Check the front wheel bewaring assemblys also for movement .up and down.and side ways,any movement other than turning,if much at all could also be the problem.I hope this helps.>>roniecon@gmail.com

First try rotating the tires to the rear. Does it go away? If you apply the brakes does it pull to the left? Could be a draging caliper or the slides may be hanging up.

1998 chevy silverado brake problem


Sound's like the ABS common problem. Chevy has a recall that say's to remove and clean the front speed sensors mateing surface of rust. I would try that before I started spending money. If you can do you own front brakes you can handle this. Good luck

ABS control module "brake fluid pump" runs constantly.


I do not know anywhere that can repair the module, and yes one from a salvage yard is a good idea.

Rear brakes replacement


The Rotors would have to be Grooved Beyond Resurfacing to Change them. Check and see if they have very deep Grooves. If Not you just need pads. Some Places will do this for 75.00 and others will Charge upwards of 200 to 400 Bucks for Service. Just do some Calling and Check out Prices first.
