My brakes do not release immediately on my Rodeo

My brakes do not release immediately on my 2001 Rodeo. It feels like the brakes are "sticking" when I begin to accelerate immediately after braking, and then they finally feel them let go. It seems to be getting worse. My ABS light comes on intermittently, but not always on when the sticking occurs. The sticking occurs almost every time I release the brakes.

You need to find out if it`s just one brake that`s sticking on or if it`s the pair diagonally connected to each other or if it`s all four. If it`s just one, it`ll be the cylinder or associated components to that one brake or a crushed pipe. If it`s two diagonally opposed to each other, it could be the brake compensator located on or near the rear axle (May not have one due to having ABS) or the master cylinder to that circuit or a crushed pipe. If it`s all of them, it can only be the master cylinder/booster sticking pedal or again a crushed pipe. Ian

The front brake calipers should be replaced with a new set of brake pads. Also bleed out the old brake fluid.

How to fix car brake jam due to not used in rainy days & humid environment.


Sounds as if you have a sticking wheel caliper, or the brake pedal itself is not returning all the way. Try pulling up on brake pedal. If this works, lube all pedal movement points. Otherwise, jack up front of car and see which wheel won't turn, and fix caliper.

Either brakes stick or trans is not down shifting when i come to a stop there is a noise and thud when i release the brakes and push the accelerater it seems to shift fine while driving


COMPLETELY SAFE: put up on lift or raise off ground with stands with enough room to get under then have someone do the gear shifting going to speed that causes the thud ,let driver(person in car)tell you when brakes are applied so you're ready then see where noise comes from;could be transmission?????

Front brakes making noise


Could be that your rotors need to be turned (milled) to take out some of the unevenness. the pads on my last brake job never seated correctly and did not stop smoothly. I would have them checked for both conditions. If a shop did the work and this is what you got, they should fix it for free.

Brakes pulsate when you put them on. When I take off from a complete stop it feels like the brakes are not releasing immediately.


Pulsating brakes are often caused by warped brake rotors. In order to check for a brake that isn't releasing I would suggest lifting one wheel at a time, applying the brakes and immediately checking if that wheel turns freely. Repeat on all 4 wheels. If you find one that isn't turning freely you'll have to address the problem with that brake.

How to check the oil level in the transfer case of my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS.


You have to take out the fill plug. If oil comes out, put the plug back in. If oil does not come out, stick the short end of an allen wrench in with it pointed down. If the oil is within a half inch of the hole you are ok.

01 rodeo, Brakes work perfect then quit working completely. Then work again. has an abs rattle noise when not working. What is the problem?


Mine did the same thing. Usually at low speeds. Scary! Problem solved after many tries. The moulded vaccuum line running from top of power brake to passenger side of engine (across top of engine by firewall), had a valve in it that sticks. Should cost less that $100 + installation. Good luck

Brake lamp came on


The Brake System Indicator normally comes on when you turn the ignition switch ON (II). It is a reminder to check the parking brake. It comes on and stays lit if you do not fully release the parking brake. If it comes on at any other time, it indicates a problem with the vehicle's brake system. In most cases, the problem is a low fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir. Press lightly on the brake pedal to see if it feels normal. If it does, check the brake fluid level the next time you stop at a service station.
However, if the brake pedal does not feel normal, you should take immediate action. Because of the brake system's dual-circuit design, a problem in one part of the system will still give you braking at two wheels. You will feel the brake pedal go down much farther before the vehicle begins to slow down, and you will have to press harder on the pedal. The distance needed to stop will be much longer.
Hope this helps you.
