SOURCE: I have a busted rear

Disconnecting the line won't stop the fluid from leaking out. Your best bet would be to use a pair of Vise-Grips and pinch the line off where it is broken. You'll probably have to pinch it a couple of times to get it to stop leaking or only seep a little and make sur the pliers are as tight as you can get them usung the square flat part of the jaws to cover the line. Hope this helps.

I have a 97 chevy malibu the frpnt brakes are sticking . i have changed the pads,rotors, and brake lines. of u let it sit for a couple hours there free bit once u start to drive it they start to have drag...


Replace caliper slides and hardware grease with high temp or caliper grease. Clean caliper mounts if problem persists mounts could be warped or bent. Or worst case both wheel bearings are bad. Also check master cylinder by using block off plugs (remove lines at master cylinder and replace with brass plugs) if the pedal doesnt return properly the problem is the master cylinder.

How do i turn the ABS light off of a 2001 chey malibu?


Yes, you can bleed them. But unless you opened the lines when you changed pads, you shouldn't have gotten air in the lines. Are you sure both brake reservoirs are full? If they are, then try bleeding. Start at a rear tire and move to front, with the driver's side being last one bled. Check carefully for any signs of brake lines leaking.

I just changed rear brakes and rotors and now I have no brakes. What's the problem


Try pumping the brakes...this is necessary after re-positioning the brake pistons...You either have a brake line leak...or your master cylinder is bad...try bleeding each side to remove any trapped air...be sure to recheck brake fluid level after bleeding...you can bleed at the brake line connection to each side...on each rear caliper...Hope this helps.

I replaced all 4 brakes on my 98 chevy malibu. for some reason i am not getting pressure back. but am being told i dont need to bleed the brakes. should i anyway. or could the adjusted on the rear drums...


Both air in the brake lines and rear drums too far out of adjustment will cause the pedal to go to the floor repeatedly.

Bleed from the wheel that's farthest away from the master cylinder first, typically driver's side rear. Then bleed the others, ending with the one that's closest to the master cylinder. Generally, right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

Adjust the rear brakes until you hear them rub a bit as you turn the wheel, then back off a couple of notches. Be sure to use the brakes when backing up at first, let them adjust themselves up to where they should be.

Is the emergency brake on a 2005 malibu maxx lt a disc or drum brake


The emergency brake is just a cable that runs to the rear brakes of the car to actuate the rear brakes, so what ever your rear brakes are.
