    caliper does not appear to be leaking, flex hose seems fine, do you think metallic brake pads could cause this effect

Have the brakes bled and checked for a sticking caliper or bad flexible hose leading to the caliper.

    yes, I use a type of Wagner brakes that have the shims built in. They are silent and effective brake shoes for a car that are simple to install by even the simplest minded technicians.



    Since there is a built in shim, the shim can't be left out when installing this brand of brake pad.

My 03 Monte Carlo ss swayed left up right when it rains, when not wet out i have no swaying issues


With the exception of too much power and bald tires on takeoff, there is little to affect straight line performance once you are underway and rolling. If the car is pulling to the left read the following.

The exceptions to this are the traction control system and the ABS braking system. The wheels in particular have controls which count the revolutions of each wheel and make adjustments.

Either system uses the brakes to synchronize the spins of the wheels from side to side. The front brakes would be most likely cause the greatest pull to one side or the other. If the sensors are getting wet and shorting, then it could cause the loss of a spin sensor getting its information to the master controls. This does not mean the rear wheels can not tug at the brakes and cause the car to veer to one side, but it is less prominent.

You need someone to examine both the ABS and the Traction Control systems. Many have scanning machines to evaluate problems. Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance autoparts can scan for FREE. But there are difference in the scanners and only the most expensive will do these functions.

Most likely the brakes on the left front will be more worn from dragging due to the brake being applied automatically.

If you mean to say the car wanders left to right when wet, then tire condition and worn suspension parts can show up when ground friction is reduced. This would be a little like hydroplaning and is caused by thin threads and loose suspension. When dry, one tire holds the direction you point to and keeps the other tire in line, but when wet the two sides battle for direction. Your good side loses its dominant grip.

You probably should try to get a scan from one of the autopart stores and tell them what you want checked. The ABS and the Traction Control as they may not have the better scanner.

An Alignment shop which can offer full services(some can't) would inspect all the joints, tires and brakes. Some give estimates in advance of repairs.

Brake noise squel when pedal is applied


Usually squealing brakes are caused by sharp edges worn on the brake pads that set up a vibration when they pass over the brake rotor-like fingernails on a chalk board. It can be cured by filing the edges of the pads at an angle.

The abs and trac lights stay on when the engine is running. how do I fix the problem ?


Something as simple as a different tire size can cause the abs to go nuts. I even had it where the two tires were the same size. But a different brand name. Each manufacture has their own tire sizing so not all tires a equal in size. Even though it says on the side of the tire that they are the same size.

Sometimes the cooper inside the insulation of the wires going to the sensors corrodes. Especially on the front units. It reads more ohms than normal but not open and is very intermittent. However moving the wires my make it work for a while. That's why replacing bearings seems to fix the problem but it comes back after a while.

You can test the speed sensors yourself...
Front sensor specs:
956 to 1240 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
at least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand
Rear sensor specs:
950 to 1300 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
At least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand

Here is some information from service bulletins that could be related to the problem. The traction control, antilock brakes, and tire inflation monitor all use wheel speed sensor input.

This first bulletin seems like it could be the problem because engine movement is involved:

GM Corporate Bulletin 00-06-04-049B
This Bulletin covers a problem that can cause multiple failures, one of which is an Antilock brake problem, and covers 2000-2003 Impala and Monte Carlo built prior to 2/03.
Check to make sure the wiring harness adjacent to the AC accumulator/dryer is not rubbing against the ac accumulator chaffing through the insulation of the wires in the harness.

GM Corporate Bulletin 03-05-25-008 overview:
GM front wheel speed sensor harness replacement - 2001-2003 Buick Century, Regal; 2001-2003 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; 2001-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue; 2001-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
This bulletin is about inspecting the harness going to the front wheel speed sensor for wear from contact with front suspension parts.
Repair harnesses/leads are available that can be spiced onto the main harness.

2001 Monte Carlo - brakes squeal "whistle"


Actually - I had the same problem and replaced my brakes 4 times in a year. YES 4 TIMES because of the whistling. I switched from metallic to ceramic pads and works like a charm! Ceramic will not allow the noise, plus I have found to have much better control over braking and short distances.
