Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Brakes grinding Just bought it for my son. I gave it a test drive and all was smooth. As soon as we got it home the brakes started grinding when you put the brakes on, and sounds like something is rubbing all the time whether the pedal is pressed or not.

Hi Jamal:
I'd be taking it to a brake repair shop right away for a safety check.
Sounds like you're describing worn out brake pads grinding on a rotor.

Tip

How to inspect a used car


Most used cars come "as-is" or with a limited warranty. Evaluate the price against the cost of needed repairs.A car should start easily and idle reasonably smoothly. Check that all warning lights come on when you turn the ignition and after completely starting the car, go off. Test drive the car for at least 10 miles show any warm-running problems.
Reject a car if:
  1. You hear the engine knocking.
  2. The oil or coolant warning lights come on or gauge readings are abnormal.
  3. An automatic transmission slips on acceleration, grinds or whines, or does not shift smoothly up and down.
  4. The clutch shudders or the manual transmission grinds, squeals, or jumps out of gear.
  5. There is more than 2 inches of steering wheel free play, roughness when you turn the wheel, or car wandering on smooth roads.
  6. The body shakes objectionably at speeds under 55 m.p.h. on decent roads.
  7. The exhaust blows blue smoke (oil) or it blows white smoke (water vapor) on a warm, dry day or for more than a few minutes on a cool day. black smoke is usually a minor fuel problem.
Checking out a car:
Brake hard at 25 m.p.h; the car should come to a straight stop. A car that rides poorly on bad roads is because of worn shock absorbers or that has poor braking will need work, but this may be normal for it's age. With the engine still running, look underneath the car/truck for an oil leak. Have a trustworthy mechanic evaluate any such leaks you find (prior to purchase). Check all accessories. Look for lubrication stickers on the door or under the hood for evidence of regular maintenance. Take the car to a professional mechanic, he can detect some problems, evaluate your road-test report, and tell you the cost of necessary repairs. If your state mandates an emissions test, he will be able to tell you if the car will pass or not.

Please rate the tip if you found it useful, thanks!

98 Ford Exp.4X4. Cranks fine but after in drive will start to flutter as I brake and cut off.


Suspect a brake servo diaphragm has faild so when you apply the brake its suckingf in air causing it to cut the engine out ,the grinding is possible the front brake pads ,or the disks or rotors as you colonialists call them are worn and the lip on the edge is so intense that the brake pads are now touching this lip ,common fault they dont make steel like they used too

There is a grinding sound when I press the brakes on my Hyundai 2010. What might be the problem?


Hi,
If it is a grinding noise then you have a problem with the brake pad area, it may have a stone caught in this area. Or it may have worn front brake pads.

Abs sensor light wont go off my 2005 polo


Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. ANTILOCK systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit. One or both warning lights may also come on while driving, also indicating a problem. If just the ANTILOCK warning light comes on, some ABS component has failed, but the car still has hydraulic brakes. The grinding noise could the the ABS pump or your brake pads could to worn to the metal backing and grinding against the brake rotors. I recommend a inspection soon for your safety.
