It can be if you have to stop in an emergency --check fluid level if low fill and search for a leak ---if fluid good need the test master and brake lines [components for fault then bleed lines to get air out --also if brake pads/shoes are super low can cause low pedal

My brake pedal slowly losing pressure goes to the floor and then I have to pump it up again


If you break fluid level is correct and your break pedal goes down to the floor means that your master cylinder is going bad and you might loose your breaks completely if not checked or replaced. Your breaking system is down to the last O ring inside the master cylinder, once that rubber O rings goes you will not have any breaks at all. Master cylinders have a number of rubber O rings that work like a plunger or piston that produce pressure within the breaking system. When the first one wears down due to age, your pedal begins to loose break pressure and you have to pump your breaks several times to gain breaking. You are now down to the last rubber O ring and a warning that your master cylinder needs to be checked. You can still use your breaks but only for a few days before the other rubber O ring gives out too. Once both O rings give out you completely loose your breaks.

I have a 2004 Seville and the water pump is stuck I have to water pump socket, break bar and wd40 but it still won't budge. Any other ideas? Pls help


Apply firm pressure with one hand gripped around breaker bar, then use palm of other hand and hit in direction to break nut loose. If that doesn't work, find a "cheater pipe" that will fit over breaker bar to make longer and give more leverage. I'm a heavy equipment mechanic and use both techniques all the time.

LOSING PRESSURE WHEN I PRESS BRAKE PEDAL, BUT NO OUTSIDE LEAKS


check the brake pads. When they start to wear down, they can have extra play in the pedal causing you to have to press further or pump them. If they are still loosing pressure, check the fluid levels and check again for leakage all through the lines, both front and back.

Lost reverse in my 1995 GMC Yukon 4wd. Other gears are working. Is my tranny shot or is it something else?


Usually when you loose reverse in this transmission it it because the reaction shell strips or breaks do to high line pressure caused by a P01870 code being pressent.Another common cause is the needle bearing on the input drum/shaft breaks up and the pieces get lodged in the reverse input drum and keep those clutches from applying.Long and short is there is no simple fix,adjustment,or sensor that will keep you from having reverse.It is time for major transmission repair.Let me know if I can help in anyway.Thanks David@FIXYA

How to bleed front brakes?


hello, your going to need a buddy in the truck pumping the brakes while you bleed them. With that first you need to verify that the master cylinder is full, if it is you can get started, there are two ways you can do this, the first is called a non-pressure bleed, this is when you break the bleeder loose and have your assistant push down on the brake pedal and when it is all the way to the floor you tighten the bleeder up before they release the break pedal. The second method is the pressure bleed. this one is a little bit more messy, you will have your assistant pump the brake pedal several times and hold firmly while you break the bleeder loose, the pressure will force the fluid and air out quickly. you will have to bleed both wheels untill there are no more bubbles in the fluid coming out. be sure to keep checking the master cylinder to verify that the brake fluid is full.

Serpentine belt keeps coming off or breaks it on my jeep


If you didn't have the gauge problem before you replacved the pump it's likely that you either damaged the float mechanism or have a bad harness connection there. (could also be a gauge problem if it began before pump change)
Serp belt will either break or walk off a pulley if either a pulley bearing is bad or something is out of alignment ( look from the side and make sure all pulleys are not too far to the front or rear) If a pulley or bearing is bad (applies to alt, a/c and p/s as well) it can cause the belt to "shock" when it binds and can throw it off. You need to remove the belt and turn each one and feel if they are either loose or rough turning (you can't exert as much pressure as the belt does so what feels slight is far greater under belt pressure)

ABS and loss of break pressure


Yes you can disable ABS. First, You said you loose brake pressure. Does your brake system have a vacuum booster and a master cylinder or is the master cylinder abs hydraulic assembly all built together?
