I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder


Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

How to adjust parking brake on 1993 chevy lumina ?




  • Adjustments




  1. Apply service brake pedal three times with a force of approximately 175 lbs.


  2. Fully apply and release parking brake three times. Full application may require two pedal strokes.


  3. Raise and support vehicle, then mark relationship between wheel and axle flange.


  4. Check parking brake pedal assembly for full release as follows:






    1. Turn ignition switch to On position.


    2. If ``Brake\'\' lamp is illuminated, operate manual brake release and pull downward on front parking brake cable to remove slack from pedal assembly.





  1. Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies, then install two lug nuts to retain each rotor assembly.


  2. If two parking brake levers on both calipers are not against lever stops on caliper housings, check for binding in rear cables and/or loosen cables at adjuster until both left and right levers are against their stops.


  3. Tighten parking brake cable at adjuster until either the left or right lever begins to move off the stop, then loosen adjustment until lever moves back barely touching stop.


  4. Operate parking brake several times to check adjustments. A firm pedal feel should be obtained by pumping pedal two full strokes and rear wheels should not rotate forward when parking brake is fully applied.


  5. Install wheel and tire assemblies, aligning marks made in step 3.

I have a 2005 Tahoe and recently the SERVICE STABILITY came on the dash board. It makes a real high pitched squealing noise while driving and it's now constantly making the noise. And getting worse. I know...


This stuff is my specialty, sounds like POSSIBLY your abs pump motor failing (the abs module mounts to the abs hydraulic pump where all the brake lines go into) i.e abs module=brain abs pump=muscle to put it simply. get the fault code(s), its going to be something like C0265 or C1214 basically "C" then 4 numbers. I can tell you EXACTLY what your problem is WITHOUT having to throw a bunch of money away by replacing unnecessary parts.
found this:
  • BRAKES - SQUEAK NOISE ON BRAKE PEDAL APPLICATION
TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN
Bulletin No.: 08-05-22-002C
Date: April 07, 2009
Subject:
Squeak Noise On Brake Apply (Remove Brake Fluid from Master Cylinder and Refill)
Condition
Some customers may comment on a squeak noise when the brake pedal is applied or when released. This noise is normally heard when the brake pedal is slowly applied with the engine on or off, but can occur when the brake pedal is released. The noise may be isolated to the master cylinder area.
Correction
To correct this concern, remove as much of the old brake fluid from the master cylinder as possible and refill with a new DOT 3 brake fluid, P/N 88862806 (in Canada, use P/N 88862807). Start the vehicle and fully cycle the brake pedal until the noise diminishes to allow the new fluid to enter the system. hope this helps! -Tim

Front end rattle that goes away when brakes applied


the squeaking sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. And the pulling to one side is cause by unequal braking pressure caused by plugged rubber brake hose, bad calipers or wheel cylinders. Check the bearings by lifting the car with a jack, block the wheels, and use a jack stand for safety. now wiggle the tire around. If it has any play, the bearing is bad. Replace it. I would replace your brakes as well. Good luck

Break pedal squeaking


is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.

How do I adjust the parking brake


Under the car on the drivers side you will see a threaded rod that goes through a saddle that goes off with two cables to the rear wheels, adjust the cable there using the adjustment nut.

When braken pedal is applied vehicle does not stop but when pedal fully applied the brakes lock up


Check the brake fluid reservoir. If the front brake system is empty and the rear still has fluid, you won't get much braking but the rears will lock up.
If the front system is out of fluid, you probably have a leak somewhere or the caliper pistons have to travel too far because of worn out brake pads.
Either way, you need to have someone work on the brakes.

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.
