Brake lockup. due to tight torance from the brake padle to the master boot. loosen the nut on push rod behind the brake padle and decrease the rod travel.
as far as the clutch, you may have the same problem.
do a serach in the Internet for the tolerance. usually is 1/8 to 1/4"

Brake pedal hard


Hi P, The most usual cause of the brake pedal action becoming hard is a defective return seal in the brake master cylinder. When the brakes are depressed fluid is pushed into the wheel cylinders, activating the brake pads and shoes. After a few operations of the braking system the fluid fails to return to the master cylinder and with each further action the brakes become tighter. After the vehicle stands for some time the pressure gradually releases and frees the brakes. Have the brake master cylinder checked. It's good policy to replace the brake fluid once or twice a year as part of the major service. Regards John

How do I replace the feul pump on my 1988 BMW 735i 6-cyl?


Remove your trunk mat and spare tyre. You can access fuel pump through plate in the trunk. Don't need to drop tank. Check fuses and relays first.

Adjusting brakes 1988 mazda capella


You are adjusting brakes, or need to know how to adjust brakes. In general, in between the two shoes on the back there is a screw with a star wheel on it that gets turned with brake pedal is pressed. Sometimes this screw hangs up from lack of turning and needs to be taken apart and lightly lubed. There is usually a plug that can be knocked out in the backing plate behind the shoes so this star wheel can be turned from under the car. Most cars if this screw is turning free can be adjusted tighter by simply backing up and pressing the brake pedal several times. That will keep pushing the star wheel and adjust the brake shoes out. I am talking about rear brakes in general and am thinking that the Mazda has some simularities.

BMW E38 735i no reverse gear..????


Before you make any other moves, I would try having the transmission flushed and refilled and filters changed and if that doesn't work, you may have burned out the modulator so you may have to shop around for another transmission or have that one rebuilt, whichever would be feasibly financial for you.
