More than likely it's air getting into the system via a leak. If you are able to, check for a brake fluid leak at the rear brakes, brake shoes should be clean, if they are oily you have a leak.

I have an 04 Pacifica FWD. I have a rubbing/grinding in front end. Put car on stands and let it idle in drive. Something is causing front wheels to randomly stop rotation. CV joint or tranny goin bad?

what you describe on the stands is normal differential action
rubbing /grinding noise can be bearings ,brake pads or calliper stuck on the slide pins

How do i bleed the brakes on my 1984 ford mustang never done it before

same as any nother car. take off mastercylinder cap. get a helper set in the drivers seat. apply pressure to the brake peddle. with a box or tube wrench break the fluid *** on the top of the calliper/back of drum loose. foot pressure on peddle should push it to the floor -hold it on the floor! tighten the *** on the caliper/drum tight-ish. not over tight. then let peddle up off floor. pump till you get resistance/tighteness. hold pressure on peddle, loosen *** again and peddle will go to floor again tighten ***, lift up peddle pump for pressure. repeat untill all air is out of line/ or fluid runs out clear. never let the master cylinder get low on fluid. have plenty on hand. repeat for all 4 tires.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down

Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

I cant push my brake peddle down ?

sounds like the break booster or master cylinder. Also maybe a vacumm issue with the break booster make sure the line is hooked from the booster to the engine intake

We replaced pads& callipers, bleed lines/ brake peddle goes to floor.brakes work but peddle still goes to!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check the vacuum hose going to the brake booster mounted on the firewall in front of the driver in the engine compartment. If that is intact and connected with no holes then the problem is the Master Cylinder.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and after bleeding the brakes (after doing some brake work) we can't seem to get the peddle to stay hard. When taking it out for a drive the first time you press on the...

Bleed them again, and don't leave the bleeder open, every time the person lets up on the pedal. close on the way down and open and close next time etc. Your letting air back into the system. Don't let the master run dry.

Changed the front brakes and now the peddle is mushy and has to go all the way down to stop.

you have air in the system and you will need to bleed the brakes. Also it is a good idea if not essential on some cars to rotate the pistons in the callipers as you retract them or damage to the seal can occur, check you have no sign of leak!
