Since they are new pads, they may not be worn in or the backing plates are not in and causes movement of the shoe when pressed hard or you may also notice the sound when you are stopped and let off the brake.

Toyota surf brake problem


If you replace the wheel cylinders or brake calipers and did not bleed them properly, you most likely have air in the lines, If the rear brakes are drum brakes they need to be adjusted (if taken apart or new parts put on) or the pedal may sink when pressed.
1. If the brake pedal is soft when pressed down, the brake lines have air in them and need bleeding to remove the air.
2. a soft brake pedal can also be a bad master cylinder. Replace the master cylinder if the lines have been bleed correctly but the pedal is still soft or sinking when the pedal is pressed.

I was backing out of my lane way and I heard a clunk that came from the front left side. A few minutes later my break peddle when the floor and I needed to pump the peddle to stop. If I push down hard on...


Unless you have a leak in the brake system the only reason your brake fluid level master cylinder would be empty is that your brake pads are worn out. As they wear the fluid level goes down. You need to check for a leak at all 4 wheels and the complete system. If you find no leak then inspect all brake pads and replace as necessary. I would also bleed the brakes as you let the fluid get very low. More than likely a new set of brake pads will solve your problem. The only thing that is suspicious is the clunk you heard. Make sure a trusted mechanic gives your brake system a good inspection. It can be very dangerous if your brakes fail.

My rear brakes grabbing on 2000 sunfire need help


Grabbing drum brakes are usually caused by moisture on the shoes. This can be oil, water, brake fluid, ect. Most likely unless it's been raining really hard for a while you probably have a wheel cylinder leaking brake fluid and they will need to be replaced.

Replaced rear drum brakes on 98 chevy cheyenne k1500 and brakes worked fine but e brake seemed way too tight, i didnt want to even try but my father in-law said aww its suppose to be that way so he pressed...


check the cable, if its corroded, rusted, the spring in the drum isnt strong enough to pull the cable back, to release the brake. You may need a new cable for the drivers side.

98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car. Rear brakes okay, adjusted cable to 3 clicks. What am I looking for?


If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

My 2005 dodge neon made a clunk noise and then the passenger rear tire locked up. Up until this point it drove fine. Help!


Your problem would appear to be something amiss in the rear brake on the locked wheel. If a wheel sylinder was leaking the brake shoes would become "sticky" and cause the shoes to "lock on" to the drum. Or if the brake was out of adjustment, the assembly could come apart and pieces of it jamb the wheel. This problem is fairly common with drum brakes. You need to have the rear brakes serviced, & checked for fluid or grease on the braking surfaces. All leaks fixed, backing plates cleaned, the wheel cylinders overhauled, & the brake shoes replaced.

Rear brakes locked up


is it drum brakes or dis brakes system? if drum brakes then you can take the wheels of then remove the drums to see if the brake hard wares are ok.
if it's disc brakes then you may have a problem with the brake caliper, then you need to replace it. I would recomment to do both sides because one side goes bad the other side will soon

Will clunk hard when accelerating slowly, and then


Is the clunk noticed as soon as the brake pedal is released? Your brake shoes engage in the rear drum when the brake pedal is pressed and then release as the brake pedal is released. Your shoes may be worn and might be "hanging up" for a brief period, that would make a clunk sound your describing

I bought a used 93 ford ranger and the guy who sold it did a ,ot off the repairs himself halfass. the brakes feel spongy thru the first half of the pedal. and the brakes arent very poweful. the kid said he...


first, dont buy any car from some DIY yahoo thats too cheap to pay for brakes, that can get you killed. About the rear clunk, theres a problem so take the drums off, and the problem should be obvious. you may need a hardware kit and a picture of what the brake shoes are supposed to look like properly mounted

Can't get rear drum off 1996 Dodge Caravan


First make sure the handbrakes are off.
When you jack up the wheel, block the other wheels.
Turn the wheel to be sure the brakes shoes are not pressed against the drum. Else release the brakes.
Take the wheel off. Sometimes the drum can rust and freeze to the hub. The only way to remove it is to keep pound it on the edge of the face really hard. Large hammer is good. Sledge hammer is better. If you could hit it on the back that's good too. That's how the mechanics will do it.
