SOURCE: Brake pedal goes too far

You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid

SOURCE: brake pads

on the caliper there should be 2 bolts holding it on. loosen one and pull the other out. lift the caliper up or down remove pads open the master cylinder so that you can compres the piston on the caliper. if you dont open the master sylinder cap it will be very tough. replace pads. tighten bolts nice and snug. then with car off pump brakes till tough. make sure you fill the master sylinder up that way no air gets in to it. if you do you gonna have to bleed the brakes. if that happens start at the passenger side rear then driver side rear then passenger front then driver front. please lemme know if you need help or if i helpd at all

SOURCE: Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

SOURCE: 2006 toyota landcruiser brake goes limp, pedal goes soft

Replace your master cylinder. It is leaking out of the back of the master cylinder and into the booster. If you unbolt the master and carefully look into the booster, chances are you will see brake fluid. Replace it, bleed the entire system, and enjoy your truck again.

You may have a bubble in the ABS. You can try bleeding there by loosening the lines one at a time, like bleeders. I have read that you might need a special rig to bleed some ABS systems. :-(

2004 f150 soft brakes

New to FixYa-not sure how this works.Soft brake are typically associated to a fluid/ master cylynder issue. Without viewing & knowing particulars via driving habits, mileage, etc, it is hard to duduce specific issues. Your front brakes have greater stopping pressures than the rear brakes which means they wear down quicker than the rear brakes. If you have a soft/mushy pedal, you may have worn brake pads which also leads to the brake fluid resevoir being low (shoe diminishment to increased fluid use-ratio)-you can fill the resevoir and pump up/ solidify the pedal but when you replace the pads, the fluid will overflow the resevoir.There are also indicators on brake pads that cause a high pitch squealing when the pads are low-again, without a visual or specific info like "do you hear any squealing while braking, how many miles on vehicle-the current set of brakes, do you tow anything, etc...", it is hard to diagnose; kind of like a doctor diagnosing a belly ache over the phone - there are so many factors/variables from the vagueness, it makes the situation a "guessing game"..If you can include more definitive info, it may narrow down the issue without a visual inspection. There are a lot of other components that could be the issues but the pads/low fluid will be the most common.Hope this does not cause more harm than good. G2

2003 chevy impala brake pedal goes to floor when sitting at a complete stop

First, check your brake fluid levels, if it is low then that enplanes your problem. Also, when was the last time you had the brakes changed? if the are worn down, then this will also cause a low fluid level. if the brakes are fine and the fluid level is good and you still have the same issue, then your problem is probably your master cylinder. Brake boosters hardly ever go bad.

Take the wheels of and inspect your brake pads and rotors.It sounds like that your brake pads are down to metal. replace brake pads and brake rotors.

Just changed front brake pads and still feels like brakes go to the floor. What is wrong?

check that fluid level is ok, by changing pad and opening calipers you may have lost fluid our of resovoir.

if your discs where not changed or skimmed at the same time you will have ridges, that do not match to the smooth pads, when you drive for a few miles eventually the pads will wear down and form the shape of the discs.

if they continue to be soft, bleed the fluid to make sure there is no air in it, if the brakes are still soft after this you should replace the brake fluid completely if it has not been done for a while as brake fluids absorbes moisture and that makes the brakes feel spongy or soft.

i hope this was useful.

1996 Suburban. Does the brake pedal gradually go all the way to the floor if the problem was worn brake pads ????

no worn pads do not cause a sinking pedal, you have a defective brake master cylinder, the seals inside the master cylinder are leaking

Calipers need to be replaced.
Brake fluid needs to be flushed completely through 4 wheels.
If you are not comfortable to do it your self then have a shop to do it. These calipers can be rebuilt, but I would go with new ones.It is recommended to have brake fluid flushed every 3 years. The brake fluid is subjected to absorb moisture over time. When it has moisture, it combines with dust causing some clogged up at moving surface locations as cylinders inside calipers. New brake fluid in the line can maintain the brake performance as it is designed to do so. Flushing is not the same as filling up. Good luck.

How to change rear brake pads for a honda 2007 ridgeline

The 2007 Honda Accord is equipped with four wheel disk brakes. Disk brakes wear down and require regular maintenance. Worn brake pads can cause squeeling and grinding noises, as well as reduced braking power. Improperly maintained brake pads can cause damage to the brake rotors as well as brake failure. Save on labor costs by replacing your own brake

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:

Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

Soft pedal brakes 1977 silverado

You will may want to check your calipers to make sure the pistion or pistons depending on your truck are pushing the brake pad against the rotor> While you are down there you might want to check out the rotor and brake pads as well. To check the rotors make sure there isn't any hot spots due to over heating your brakes as well as an out of round rotor. To check the pads just have a quick look at them to see if there is any scoring or uneven pad wear. remember that uneven pad wear can also be caused by the calipers

Soft brake pedal after rotor replacement

If they rebled the brakes and the pedal goes to the floor, chances are that the master cylinder is bad. Probably cost about $80-100 for the part if you could do it yourself
