Question about 1993 Chrysler New Yorker

2 Answers

Had a backyard mechanic replace the rotors and brake pads on my 93 New Yorker. Prior to job my left rear brake was metal on metal. Immediately following the job, that same left rear brake pad won't release from the rotor(disc). Note...I didn't see the brakes bled when mechanic completed job.What might be the problem? God bless, Doc

Most likely, and especially if that pad wore completely out and the other pad had substantially more material left on it, the caliber needs to be rebuilt or replaced. The piston inside the caliber can not release and that has nothing to do with bleeding. When you do a pad replacement and dont have to open the brake line fittings there is no need to bled.

What could be the problem with my car when there is a grinding noise as I turn my steering wheel to the left while driving


Brahe shoes wore and metal to metal rubbing, check wheel bearings, I would think you have the right size tires and are not rubbing.

New brake pads and rotors installed at 70,000 miles Now at 86,000 brakes squeak Shop owner says rotors cracked due to heat Replaced rear rotors pads cut down front rotors and new front pads. Any ideas why...


Your rear brakes do very little in stopping your vehicle since the front do almost all the work. For the rear brakes to crack is almost never and it gives me the idea that someone has left the emergency brakes on and drove it around like this until they over heated and cracked. One other thing also to think about. When you overheat a rotor disk, usually the first thing you will feel is a pulsating as you come to a stop. Heat will warp a disk before it cracks. I can't recall ever seeing a cracked rotor before, but I have seen many warped ones. Always be sure the mechanic shows you parts he replaced. Double check his repairs to be sure they did the work. If your not ******* your brakes, then they have done a shabby job. Check the shops review information with the BBB. They maybe have had complaints before and your just one of their many. No mechanic alive should send a customer out with a car that is unsafe to drive. If I were you I would get a second opinion and maybe a third. It seems more and more these days people are getting ripped off by mechanics. As much as it cost for car repairs, mechanics need to be kept in check and if they don't do it right, don't be scared to file a complaint on them. The next customer of theirs will be grateful if they see the report filed about them.

Driver's side front brake became suddenly stuck ( and mildly smoking) on my 1991 ford aerostar xl that has been excellently maintained. The 'Rear Anti-Lock' brake light came on yesterday and stayed on, and...


yes baby it to him and replace both calipers and rotors as they will work better with your new brake pads. Do Not Do a half a job when it comes to brakes. its your family you are dealing with. calipers are cheap rotors are cheaper and pads are also cheap. its 3 hours labour to do a complete front brake job and rear brakes take 2 hours. with new shoes turn drums replace wheel cylinders and new rear brake hardware price in Canadian for front brakes under 400 price for rear under 250 American parts prices slightly different but labour times the same

Rear wheels lock up on my dodge dakota


What year Dakota? Drum Brakes?

Lock up when?

If you use the parking brake,then the cables
have to be replaced because of rust.

With proper brake maintenance once a year, there is no
reason to say they lock up while driving

My brakes sound like they are grinding


check rear rotors and front rotors for rust buildup (flahlight helps). does the vehicle shake when you come to a hard stop? You will either need to have a front or rear or both brake job (rotors cut or replaced and new brake pads) If the vehicle is shaking when coming to a stop, its probably your front pads. If your hearing the noise from the rear its the rear pads or it you hear it from the front its the front pads. If there significant rust build up or your pads are low a brake job is recommended.

I just got an estimate have all 4 rotars "machined" and brake pads replaced - parts and labor were quoted at $542.40. Does this seem like a fair price.


These parts are brand new from autozone...Front brake rotor=90.00 for 2...rear rotor=60.00 for 2.....brake pads front=30.00/set...brake pads rear = 25.00/set...total = 205.00 parts
so the labor is 337.40....and the parts I looked up are not machined but NEW!!!...maybe you should do the work yourself....337 seems like alot of money....I do brakes for $50.00 labor per axle...especially if you are replacing all the parts...it's not very hard to accomplish...the front rotors easily pop off when you take off the caliper(which has to come off to do the pads) and then the rears are not really too difficult either...My opinion...either do it yourself or get another estimate...maybe there's an out of work backyard maechanic on your street you can give the job to..or if your in the indiana area...call me ...i'd be happy to do the work for ya 2196972613jeffrey

350z Rotors need to be cut at only 10K miles


Your rotors should be fine but it also depends on who turned the rotors and how they were done.Considering the dealer replaced the pads they probably used a metallic pad which have been known to be a noisy .Id suggest you have a repair shop resurface your rotors again and install some ceramic brake pads.

if your strapped for cash i would suggest doing it yourself as you will not have to pay for labour and all that other BS, not sure on prices on pads but if go to a car parts store they should be able to order specific ones for your car and they arnt hard to change that would be your best bet

Rear brakes overheating


Just a backyard mechanic myself, so we both know that the calipers float around on the bolts that hold them on. I know if the bolts dont slide in easyley they should be cleaned up with fine grit sand paper and a thin film of grease on them. Pry your shoes back and see if your caliper slides back and forth easyley. The calipers have to slide back and forth (float) or the pads will get hot and wear out prematurely. Let me know how this turns out.
