Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88

1 Answer

'93 Olds 88 brake reassembly. Very stiff spring.

I have a 1993 Olds 88 with a blown rear wheel cylinder. While replacing cylinder and brakes on the drivers side I had a major problem getting the U shaped spring bar back in place. It took a lot of force and a friend to hold the brake pads in place and spread the spring arms. Is there an easy shortcut to getting the brake assembly back together?

Put the bar on the shoes before you attach the clips and springs.

Help with installing brake shoes on 1993 buick park ave


Your Buick has front disc brakes...and rear drum brakes...the usual concern is the front pads as they are used more...these are the easiest pads to replace...as you only need to remove the caliper from the rotor with 2 bolts to lift off...Be sure to push the piston all the way back into the caliper to install new pads...rotors are pop offs too...The rear drum is different...the brake shoes are held on with clips and springs...try keeping one of the shoe assemblies intact while you switch out the other shoes...be sure to inspect the rear wheel brake cylinders for possible leaking...usually an oil build up inside the brake drum...these are inexpensive and should be switched out on a 93 Buick...:) Hope this helps.

On my 93 e 150 van if i have to hit the brakes hard,say for a red light the left rear brakes start to drag and after 10 miles they start to smoke.had new brakes put on and checked emer cable,still same...


Possibly a wheel cylinder sticking. Also a possibility that the rubber brake hose in the rear is damaged internally. (This will normally cause both rear brakes to stick, however) The only other thing I can think of is weak return springs or a brake shoe catching in the groove of a badly worn backing plate.

You did remove all the brake springs

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

I had someone change my brake pads without bleeding the brakes and now my warning light is on


Start at the master cylinder and bleed ,then the right rear,then the left rear,and right front,then the left front wheel.You should not have to bleed the brakes to install brake liners.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

Sometimes brakes goes to the floor .


if you suddenly loose brakes like that it usually an air block in main pipes, or badly overheated fluid, either way you will have to replace all fluid out of system by bleeding one at a time.
