I have a 1998 chevy cavalier and I just replaced brake booster, master cylinder and abs box and my back brakes. When I put on brakes and my abs light isn't on it gives a loud clicking noise and feels like...


It sounds dangerous, frankly. If it were an artwork, and I was a critic, I would say you did a masterful job with the broad brushes. Now let a master complete the finishing touches.

The equalization of the brakes is all wrong. Normally, the front disc brakes carry the brunt of the braking force, and then the rear brakes will begin braking. I think the shaking is coming from maybe just one brake working? Did you bleed all four brakes, beginning at the rear? The clicking could be a rear brake out of adjustment, too.
I would let a shop do the finishing touches to get your brakes back perfect, and the abs working, if any problems in that. Nice job so far, though. Any relatives or friends could help you with those finishing touches? It's not rocket science, just experience or training.

HAVE A 2000 FORD EXPLORER THAT RECENTLY FEELS LIKE FRONT BRAKES ARE LOCKING WHEN I TRY TO STOP ...EVEN WHEN MOVING FEELS LIKE THERE GRABBING


First thing is are the wheels grabbing, you will need to drive and see if they are grabbing and then jack one wheel at a time and see which one is grabbing and go from there it could be brake hose or e-brake cable but first pinpoint the wheel or wheels. you said they are locking which ones front or rear?

Since lift kit install front brakes grabbing 08 titan 2wd


Did your lift kit come with new extended brake lines?
You mentioned the brakes feel like they are "on" and you can't pump up your pedal anymore.That makes me think that like most lift kits,nothing is provided to re-locate the rear rubber brake line that is mounted to the top of the rear differential. It may be stretched so far that it's kinked on both ends allowing fluid to the rear brakes thru hydraulic pressure but not being allowed to release on it's own. Just a thought. Good Luck!

ABS PROBLEM?


if this bothers you enough to spend money trying to fix it. and there are no abs codes a tech can find. i would replace the rear wheel speed sensor. located on top of the rear axle.if it irraticly reads a different speed than the front wheels. your abs will give you a drop in pedal and grinding feel or a pulsating pedal. i hope this is helpful. your problem is not one most people can figure out at home. trust your tech understands your prob and wants it fixed also. dont forget he is trying to get paid.good luck

95 Ford Windstar brake or ABS chatter


the ABS antilock braking system will if a fault occures? light up indicator light on dash but this means ABS is none operational thereby you will still be able to stop as if car not fitted with system i am conserned at your comment having to pump brake pedal? why? too much travel on pedal? but will pump up harder?? when you replaced front brakes? were the pads and discs replaced? did you bleed the brakes hydraulc system after ? from what you've said i am sure the ABS is working but a sensor /s is sensing premature brake lock up on either front or rear? so if you are certain front brakes ok? thencheck rears? if rear brakes are drums ? remove and inspect for wear or possible contamination ie cyl leaking fluid on shoes would cause brakes to adhese to drum on application also grabbing ? hope this helps some?
