I believe you are talking about the ABS system, some cars react differently but when you press on the brakes hard this is when it happins, if you are applying the brakes lightly and that is happining then you have an issue with the ABS distribution block valves, replacement is the only repair.

When I hit the brake pedal pedal jerks and makes a humming sound what causes


Could be power break system, Could be brake disks or drums, It could be ABS system, a part of the breaking system. Since breaking is critical for safety, I'd get it checked and fixed soon by your dealer or a reputable shop.

Just had a warning light come on a 2002 Rio. (!) Looked at manual; looks like a warning for low brake fluid. I looked at fluid level and it's at MAX??


Hello,

Sometimes when your light comes on or code comes on, that represents being low on break fluid ,does not always mean that your fluid container is low, it also means you could have a blockage, or a leak somewhere. But more often then not, it usely is a sensor that goes to your breaks, that when pads get worn, or close to warn, there is a sensor that activates your computer and meaning there is a break issue going on. Of course sometimes it is low on fluid, but most the time it is not that. What i would do ( and its free) is hit up a les swab and have them first check all your breaks and break sensors, most likely it will be found there. Thanks Mike

1993 Grand Am jumped timing. One valve is showing over 200 lbs of compression, the other three are showing none. Any suggestions.


I've had a few of these engines break the cam shaft after cylinder #4. meaning #5 & #6 have no compression, but also no oil pressure due to no oil pump drive from cam shaft. 2 out of 3 times the engine was toast. If it truly skipped the timing, then you will need a timing chain and sprockets. When the timing skips or the cam shaft breaks, the pistons will definitely hit the valves and bend them, thus no compression. I'd recommend tearing down the engine yourself and determine what went. To check the cam shaft, remove the front valve cover and watch the rockers for cylinder #6, if they don't move then broken cam shaft.

Wanting to know the importance of changing a timing belt and what can happen if it breaks or skips a notch


If it skips a notch it will stat running like you need a major tune-up, now if your timing belt breaks you will have major engine damage this is an interference engine which means that the piston will hit your cylinder head valve's and the head will have to be remove to repair, it is recommended to replace the timing belt every 105,000 miles, also I would replace my water pump due to it is driven by the timing belt, if you just replace timing belt and then water pump goes bad you have still have major engine damage, hope this was very helpful.

Abs ligth an breake turn on, the break fluid is Ok level up, the car is VOLVO S40 2002 1.9 Turbo, the car breake ok. what i do?


Very common problem on Volvo , ABS module is bad.
This is not effecting the brake system , meaning you'll still have normal brake operation , but on slippery road Anti Lock System won't work.
That system prevent wheels to be locked up by driver and prevent car going into spin.

If a waterpump siezed on a Daewoo Lanos would that break the camb


Yes. I think. A lot of cars have the water pump under the timing cover and you change the pump when you change the timing belt. They usually don't seize though, they just leak. Did you run it after it broke? How long before the engine quit? Did it start knocking? When you go to change the belt, look for a broken cam, or other damage that the broken belt would have caused. Some engines are free running, meaning they will turn over no problem when the belt goes, other engines are intermittent, meaning the valves hit the tops of the pistons and cause considerable damage. Find out before you go too far. Hope this helps.

Timing belt problem


No,the 1996 Mazda 626 is not a interfearance engine, meaning that the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt breaks while underway but the engine will not run untill the belt is replaced.
