Rear brake lock up

I have a 1994 s10 pickup 2 wheel drive that i put new brakes on the front and checked the rear and they were ok but now every time you apply the brakes to slow down the rear locks up what could this be the master cylinder .thanks for any help, oh without it running their is not any brake fadeing and no leaks are present.

If you have drum brakes on the rear and I am pretty sure you do, and you had to remove the drums you will need to adjust the rear brakes back to the point of almost touching the drum while jacked up and spinning the tire. Not to tight. The brakes are probably traveling so far to hit the drum that they lock up. This will be more noticeable when raining or damp weather. Hope this helps.

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied


If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

Squeking wheel off and on while driving


get your car to a service centre immediately, squeaking usually indicates worn brake pads, most brake pads now have things called shims, that let out an almighty strange squealing sound that goes on and off as the wheel turns, as you get faster, it gets quicker, it might be front brakes or rear brakes, but make sure you get them all checked, i have had on more than one occasion, front left brake pads ok, front right low, or rear and vice-versa

ABS brake problem, 1994 Chevrolet Corsica


You have a bad master cylinder my friend, all the braking force is going to the rear hence the lockup, the front brakes most likely don't do anthing, all mdern brake systems are split, so you have at least 2 wheels working, in effect the car has 2 master cylinders in one unit.
