Question about 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

Squeeking at brake pedal

Brakes themselves are fine on my 2004 Grand Marquis, but there is an annoying squeeking, almost groaning, noise where the stem from the brake pedal goes thru the firewall. I oiled the linkage that's visable, didn,t help. There's a small rubber boot where the stem (rod?) goes from pedal linkage to engine compartment. Does this boot come off? Should I even try to take it off? Thanks for any advise.

Yes that boot comes off. I would not mess with it. I would take a oil can and slide it under the boot and oil it. Or you can buy a new rod and stem that will work also. they are farely cheap and will already come pre-lubed

When i first start to drive my 2005 dodge neon the brakes squeek after about 2-3 times the brakes stop squeeking any ideas?


Probably just surface rust and or dust in drums if you have drums. Pretty common. Have had 2 Neons and both did the same. Especially after a damp night (dew) or rain, first few stops would squeek. Used to push pedal slightly when I first head out to clean them off and that seemed to help.

ABS brakes grunt, groan noise with brake pedal travel.


Joe it is common for the brakes to moan when they wear down and sometimes they will squeak, try replacing the front pads and lubing the shafts on the calipers install anti squeal on the back of the pads, the ABS device would not cause noise as they are just a ring with a magnet and the reluctor ring spins and the magnet detects the spinning of the reluctor ring, they don't even touch and are stationary in place where they are mounted. There is a possibility that the brake fluid is dirty and could cause the abs motor to groan but you would just have to flush the system, When you don't put your foot in it on the brakes it will make some noise even new, I have a 2008 ford ranger that makes the same noise and the brakes are fine. You will have to adjust your braking habits to stop the noise. You can change the pads and that will help but not for long, be sure when you are operating your brakes press firmly on the pedal until you stop. If the brakes make noise after you let up on the pedal then the caliper parts need to be cleaned and lubed, however it is not a safety issue.

Squeeking noise at slow speeds


If its squealing from the wheels at low speeds with your foot OFF the brake pedal, check the brake pads. There is an EARLY WARNING SENSOR that's squeals like chalk on the blackboard when the brakes get low. Could be totally off on this one , but hope it helps.

2006 chevy silverado 1500 front brakes are squeeking


on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry

My 2004 chevy tahoe makes a squeaking noise while driving and now there's brake dust forming on the rims.


If the squeeking is happening over bumps, and is not related to breaking, it could be a bearing in the steering linkage. My tahoe is doing the same thing, and my local garage says it is only a dealer fix. That is why I am searching this site now, is to find out if anyone else is complaining about this. I was told that GM is fully aware of this problem.
