Loss of braking ability

I had the front driver side strut replaced on my Honda Del Sol and immediately lost all braking ability at random times, especially when I first start up the car.

What most likely happened is when the strut was replaced the brake line/hose was open to be removed from strut. when ever the brake lines are open the entire braking system needs to be bleed. This can be done by pumping brake pedal and holding in the down position and with a 10mm wrench opening int brake caliper bleeder screws and letting the air out of the system. Repeat this until the only a stream of pure brake fluid is seen coming out of caliper. Make sure to keep brake reservoir full at all time. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

How can I tell for sure that the Struts are bad and How difficult is replacing Struts on the Honda Del Sol


If you see any leaks they are bad. If the car has over 100,000 miles then rest assured they need replacing. Unless you have the proper tools and knowledge this is best left to a pro. You can get seriously injured or killed when compressing the spring to remove the strut.

Yesterday I noticed, on my 1997 Honda Del Sol, that the CHECK (yellow) lamp came on. I immediately checked my manual and it stated it had to do with my gas cap. The last time I got gas was about two...


the vehicle randomly runs a test on the vehicle to test the emissions, if the cap was loose it will trip the light. if it is tight the next time it runs the test it will turn the light off.

Why do my brake lights remain lit on my 1995 honda del sol?


There is a little plastic piece in your brake pedal that hits the switch to turn the brake lights off. These pieces wear out over time and need to be replaced, they should cost $5 or less at the Honda dealer. They pop in very easily. Good luck

My Del Sol is pulling hard to the right.


Rotate the tires front to rear, see if it solves the problem. Unless you bent something on the front end, it should cure the pulling.
