Going over $300. is very easy to do. I could be more specific if you could tell be exactly what was told to you (what the car needs to be repaired).

Got a problem with my brakes

Need more information about the brake fluid leak and what you needed to do to rectify it.

Brake pedal feel should be fairly consistent and when it isn't it does indicate something mechanical is sticking and freeing itself intermittently.
I suggest you inspect all aspects of the braking system systematically and thoroughly to ensure everything is serviceable. Pay attention also to the correct adjustment of the pedal linkage and if the master cylinder or brake booster servo has been changed at any time, the master cylinder clearance should be checked.
Check also wheel bearings for excessive free play.

Now for my brakes. The right rear brake locks up so badly that it even pulls the rear of the car down. I have completely rebuilt them and bled the entire system.

If the brakes are locking in that way I would suspect you have a partially blocked flexible brake line on that wheel. When you apply the brakes you can force the fluid through but when you release them the fluid will not flow back up the line and is locking your brakes as a result.
You will not see deterioration from the outside of the hose because brake hoses deteriorate from the inside especially near each end.

If you cannot fix it yourself take it to a brake specialist to diagnose.

Look forward to a civil law suit and a criminal prosecution if you disconnect your rear brakes and have an accident which I can absolutely guarantee you will.

Brakes going to the floor will not stop master cylinder full no leaks around car what could this be

Sound like you have a Master Cylinder failure, you brake fluid is full, and no pedal resistance, if the brakes feel spongy then you may just need to have your brakes bleed, and got air in you brake lines, if you found that your brake resivoir tank low and added some recently, then maybe it pulled air into your lines. Good luck. Rick.

Cant get brakes to work

Hydraulic brakes are quite simple in their basic operation, but can sometimes be difficult to troubleshoot.
Basically, a piston presses on a hydraulic fluid, which presses other pistons against the brake shoes.
Total failure is rare, but usually indicates where you should be looking to find the problem.
Typical points of failure are:
  • Brake shoes/pads. Shoes are used on drum brakes, pads on disk brakes. While they aren't typically the cause of total failure, they can be a problem.
  • Low brake fluid. Sometimes worn brake pads can result in significant piston movement inside the caliper. That can cause low brake fluid inside the reservoir. Check the fluid level.
  • Leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder. Usually you'll see fluid leaking around the inside of the wheels or down from the master cylinder.
  • Air in the brake line. If there is a poor seal on the master cylinder or if the brake fluid has been allowed to run out, it's possible that you may air in the line. The hydraulic line must be purged of all air for hydraulic brakes to function properly. If you haven't done it before, enlist the help of a mechanically inclined friend who has a little experience with bleeding the brakes.
Of course, it's always possible that a flexible brake line has ruptured or been cut or some other damage has occurred, but that's rare.

Both front brakes are leaking brake fluid/Lexus es 300 1993

probably not. you won't know though till it is taken apart. the worst i think is the calipers are frozen. but most likely you can swap the hoses out and it will be fine. good luck and if you have any more question please ask

Drivers side rear brake line has a hole in it near a bend just after the axle. Is there a repair kit with a flexible hose and clamps or compression fittings availabe?

The best, SAFEST, and cheapest way to fix anything that has to with your brakes is just replace the brake line.

The brake fluid you're losing doesn't only affect that brake it will affect al four of your brakes and if the leak expands you could mash the peddle one time and have absolutely no brakes at all.

Brake lines aren't that much and it shoud take you under an hour to change it.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for letting ya

Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

1997 Saab 900 Turbo SE Brake Issue

Have you put the correct caliper on each side?
Are bleed screws facing upward?
If so you will probably need to have brakes pressure bled to push through air in ABS system.
