Did you check calipers for sticking, lube pins & lube areas where caliper slide properly? You may also have flex hoses at calipers defective inside the hose where you can't see. When checking that calipers are releasing properly, if you discover they are not, try cracking bleeder screws and if they release good then, I'd replace those hoses, and see if that doesn't cure it.

They are probably dragging on the rotor. did you replace the rotors or have them turned down.If not that has an impact also. more than likely it
s your calipers not sliding smoothly on the slide bolt therfore not retracting like the are suppose to.

Brakes are making a grinding sound


If your brakes are grinding I would take the tires off and check the pads and rotors for extreme wear. The grinding sound could be the pads are so wore that the metal pads are digging into the rotors.If this is the case before putting the pads back on replace or cut down the rotors if there not to damaged.

Break smell


Hi

is it back or front? sounds like a caliper is sticking so the brake pad is rubbing on the disc, it would be easy to see which one as the disc would be glowing red or red-er than the others, thats assuming it is a brake disc and not drum version as on the rear.

please clarify, any fault with the car noise etc still driving ok?

Regards

Sounds like your belt is slipping. Weather it is loose or a bearing is going bad and locking up in the alternator, ac, ps, or waterpump I don't know. Have someone check these items.

Long, slow braking is producing noise intermittently. Doesn't happen every day, but when it does the car has been driven for about 15 minutes. Dealer hasn't heard it, therefore 'no problem'. They say the...


If i understand this right the brakes skweeks,and if so you remove the pads and mount anti skweek plates between the pistong and the pads,i guess you kan find this at the local dealer and are fixed in 30 minutes.

Skweeking brakes


Several possible causes:
  1. Did you use copper-based brake grease on the brake pins and the back of the pads?
  2. Did you clean all the old gunk off the brake pins and after doing so, where they deeply grooved? If so, you must replace them.
  3. Wrong brake pads. Some pad manufacturers list a patricular pad as being OK for a vehicle. They fit OK but the pad characteristics are wrong and they squeal like crazy or wear out in no time or give lousy raking performance etc.
  4. If the pads you removed had anti-squeal shims on the back of them did the new ones? They almost certainly should have. IIRC, they are held to the pads by some double-sided adhesive tape.
  5. If you get squeak-silence-squeak-silence... at low speed (i.e. just before coming to a halt) then the disk(s) is/are distorted. They will have to be replaced. You must not machine the discs on these brakes - there is no thickness available to do that. If you do tthey may well collapse under the heavy braking of an emergency stop with very unfortunate consequences!
  6. As someone said, the disc may be badly worn and/or grooved -check and replace if necessary.
  7. You may have a stone or piece of grit stuck between a pad and a disc. If so & it's worn a groove in the disc,you will need to replace both disc and pad.
  8. Make sure you torqued any brake bolts correctly and that you put thread sealant on them. Failure to do so can lead to them loosening in normal use. The brakes may squeak for a while if this happens but then things can get much worse...

1994 Dodge Caravan rear brakes won't wear out.


Yes, this is very normal. You'll replace the front 3 times before you'll have to replace the rears. The reason for this is because 80% of your braking is in the front. There is nothing wrong with your brake system.
