Check for leaks on all lines and calipers.if there is no sign of leaks make sure brake fluid is full.if that is fine then have your brake system bled.if that doesnt solve the problem then it may be your brake booster.hope this helps.

How do i bleed brakes for hyundai fe 2001


If this vehicle has drum rear brakes then remove them and clean the lip on the drum then manually adjust up the brakes and see how it is ,if disk rear brakes then renew the master cylinder as the seal between the front and rear system has failed causing the spongy brakes,but if rear drums then adjusting the brakes up manually reduces the pedal travel which moves the master cylinder piston to less travel so often you do not need to renew the master cylinder ,unless you watch these so called car programmes that have a so called master mechanic whos total knowledge is less than what i have forgotten over the years ,or written on a postage stamp comes to mind

Clunking noise in rear end when reversing then going forward


The rear suspension has no drive parts as your car is a FWD, front wheel drive. There are parts on the wheel axles which have bearings and also Brakes.
If you have rear disc brakes, the inner part of the rotor has a drum for Emergency brakes and these linings often peel off their brake shoe. The loose lining can get ground up in the turning rotor hub. The Emergency brakes are pinned to the brake backing plate and can clunk when the shoes shift. If you have rear drum brakes the shoes may be out of adjustment or worn out leaving room to rock as vehicle direction changes.
Bearings, excess play can cause noise. Suspension brackets, bushings within the mounts for these components can wear out. When parts are moving in 1 direction a "set" is grooved into the rubber parts. Changing direction of travel will unseat the part and make noise.
Traveling sound. You may be hearing a sound you suspect is in the rear of the car, but is actually a cradle mount around the Firewall. Sound travels through metal.
You need to get the rear wheels off the ground and check for play in all the components. For the cradle mounts, have someone ride the brake pedal and shift the transmission forward and backward to see if noise is generated or excess play is seen.

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.
Mark

I've installed a new rotors and brakes. Bleed the master cylinder and lines. I have a nice hard pedal with vey little travel with the vehicle turned off. BUT when the vehicle is running the brake pedal...


On vehicles equiped with ABS brakes you have to have the vehicle running when you bleed the brakes if you di it while not running this is the problem you will have. Be sure you start it then check fluid then bleed the brakes really good it usually takes alot of bleeding when you have ABS.

Noticing a little more travel on brake pedal and handbrake lever and wonder whether some adjustment can be made to reduce this travel on brake pedal


your rear brakes are worn or the self adjusters are rusted, assuming you have drum rear brakes & not disc pads in the rear.
Try backing up several times with very hard stops to activate the self adjusters. If you don't back up much, the self adjusters can not work. Parking brake will be adjusted at the same time.

please rate.
