Bad brakes ,can't stop in a hurry

I have a 90 model jeep Comanche and the brakes were getting a little weak so i changed the front pads and set the rear brakes up a little and bleed them, but they still suck they stop pretty good if i ease down on them but if i get on them hard i can\'t even make my wheels slid ,my question is could it be my power brake booster?

    i bleed the brakes when i put the new pads on, but found no air. at all in the lines, to be honest the pads i took off were not even half wore ,thats why i'm thinking maybe the booster has went bad,but i'm just guessing at this point.

Brakes dont stop suburban till I push real hard


Check brake system. Resurface brake rotors. Replace pads. Check drums and shoes. Fush system. I use cross drilled rotors and carbon fiber pads. Stop in a hurry. Some Suburbans (94 and up) have slow ABS units that take their time to allow brakes to activate.

What age? What Mileage?

Brake hoses go bad and either prevent brakes from operating or prevent them from pulling back after being applied. Had this problem too.

Also check for vaccuum leaks. TBI engines had a loose metal tube under the TBI unit. I had a vaccuum leak and had to tighten my tube 6 times @ 1/4 turn each. Solved problem.

Try to use some liquid around vaccuum hoses and see if idle changes. Non TBI engines have plastic intake issues.

Check check valve in vaccuum booster. My was bad too.

Molded hose neeed to be replaced. I used two hoses and a brake booster filter in the HELP section to make the 90 degree turn from the hard line to the check valve.

93 Suburban 2WD. Runs great now. 16 mpg city.

1993 Jeep Cherokee: hissing/weak brakes


If you are talking about when you push the pedal you hear an air noise and the pedal is real hard to push then you most likely have a bad power booster. If your pedal is weak and goes low to the ground you most likely have a bad master cylider as well. Best to just change both. For that year model shouldnt cost much and not hard to install.

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport. When making a sharp turn to the left I hear a rubbing sound coming from the left front tire area. There is currently a light squealing noise when stopping. Are the two...


Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.

2004 Jeep Liberty shaking when breaking at high speed


Some things you can check. 1 jack up one side at a time. Grasp the tire on each side and try to move the tire, if you can move it you have a bad inner tie rod on that side. You can also grasp the tire at the top and bottom and try to move it that way as well, this will tell you if you have bad ball joints. I suspect a bad inner tie rod here as you have replaced everything else. If you check both front tires and nothing is loose your problem lies in your front brake rotors. Hope this gives you some help and thank you for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

Jeep stalls



I had the same problem... frustrating.

I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it with throttle body cleaner spray. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. While I had the throttle body off I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. The manual will walk you through the steps. I had never done anything like this before. If I can do you so can you.
My Jeep has never run better. Good Luck
