I just changed front and back brakes to much play in brake peddle


Adjust the rear drum brakes if equipped, too much distance between the rear drum lining and the drum will cause this, if it has all 4 disc brakes better look at the master cylinder for a leak internally.

Brake fluid leak on rear drum


If you have no evidence of leaking outside the drum, most likely your brake piston is leaking or the drive shaft seal is leaking. Pull off the drum and look for the piston which spreads the two brake pads normally situated at the top. Inspect for leaks. If the fluid is thin, it is most likely brake fluid. If it is heavier like oil and really stinks, it is gear oil from a leaking seal.

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

Rear brakes lock up very easy


leaking brake fluid or lining dust causes locking. take drums off and check brake cylinders for leakage at rubber boots. If leaking, replace cylinders and clean shoes with brake cleaner. If no leakage, clean out all dust with brake cleaner. Adjust shoes up tight to drum and reinstall. Let me know if you have questions or need instructions.

My Zusuki is a 2002 grand vitara.I just noticed a serious brake fluid leakeage from the rear (driver side) drum.What is exactly happening to the brake,what is the cause of this leakeage ? Thanks in...


Either your rear brake hose is leaking or your drum brake wheel cylinder is leaking. You will have to remove the wheel and drum to accurately find that leak.

Brakes have a mushy to floor response


usually an indicator of either a loss of pressure due to low fluid and/or air in the system (brake fluid leak) or extremely worn rear brakes (if drum brakes in rear). possible causes include master cylinder (internal fluid pressure leak), external fluid leaks (calipers, lines, wheel cylinders), rear drum brakes extremely worn down or severely out of adjustment. normally worn disc brakes may reduce pedal height SOME, but seldom "to floor". but the "mushy" quote combined with the "floor" quote suggests a hydrolic fluid pressure problem.

It sounds like you have air in the brake line(s). You need to bleed your brakes and that should fix your problem.

Wheel is locking up on 88 ranger


U need to pull the rear drum off to see what's going on. Check to see if the brakes and drum look wet. There may be a leak in the brake cylinder or axle seal. The leaking oil/brake fluid can cause what u describe. Does this happen all the time, or only after using the brakes for a while? If there is some type of fluid leak, it needs to be fixed, and your should replace the brake shoes and all hardware. Let me know what u find, or if u need further help.
