Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Just bought this 2002 Camry. First snow and the front brake locked and wouldn't stop the car. Took it for service, but they couldn't find anything wrong with the brakes. Since then the same thing happened once in the rain/sleet and once on dry pavement (but the weather was very cold). Any ideas?

I'd have them re-check the calipers, especially the piston boots for cracks, or rips where moisture could enter and then freeze, and lube slides with proper grease, and perform a fluid flush. Moisture may have got in to fluid somehow and contaminated it.

My 2004 Camry is hard to stop when applying the brakes and its always been that way since we bought it new is this normal for a camry?

no car should be hard to stop. go to dealer ask to test drive a newer Camry and see if it feels the same, some people who are not used to ABS or 4 wheel disc brakes may not like the feel . this could be just a condition to get used to , i know i had old cars that would lock up quick but newer cars are made not to do that. hope this helps.

The brake fluid reservoir should be located on the driver's side directly in front of the firewall in the engine compartment . The cap that you remove to add brake fluid should be labeled brake fluid only .

What is a load proportioning valve

A load proportioning valve is a valve that is used in the brake system that uses an arm attached to the suspension in the rear and as the vehicle is loaded, the arm allows the valve to allow more brake fluid pressure to flow through to even the braking and cause the vehicle to stop more effectively even when there is more weight in the back. Usually used on pick ups.

Brake light is show up most of the time

Brake lite on? Check master cylinder. Low on fluid. Your front brake pads are probably low also.
Cig lighter/clock/mirror and probably the dome light out too? Check fuses under dash.
Took in for check engine light? What was the code and what did they do?

2002 camry breaks

take off brake caliper, take off your brake pads. check the sliders. sliders are on the side of the bracket. see if they are moving freely in and out. im pretty sure they are seized. that's why your pedal is soft and sinks down really fast when applied.
