How do I adjust the parking brake on a 1988 Suburban?


First, adjust the brakes manually. The cable that runs to the rear end has an adjustment near the frame on the drivers side.

Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

Brake system


You have a leaking brake line or Caliper. You need to fix the hole by replacing parts.

Brakes loosing pressure


Well first of you need to take it to where you got it done if you had pressure prior to taking it in to get the brake job done. If you had drum brakes done, it sounds as if the brakes were not adjusted. It is possible if anything to do with the hydrolics like whell cylinders or caliper replacement, you could be dealing with air in the lines because the system was not bled properly. Not sure what all you had done for $300 so just going with possiblities. Drum brakes have self adjusters. They adjust themselves when going in reverse and applying the brakes. You can kind of adjust them yourself by going at a pretttty good speed in reverse and applying the brakes kind of hard. Don't slam on them to lock them up. Just get going at a pretty good (safe) rate of speed in reverse. Try to come to a prettty quick but smooth stop. Do this several times. If this seems to help the pedal not going to the floor, adjustment may be the problem. If you had any work on the hydrolics and it wasn't bled correctly or there is a leak, this procedure will not work. In any case I personally think you should take it back to where you got the work done and have them correct it at no cost to you.

1999 corolla, brake pedal goes to the floor. how can we fix the brakes?


is the abs light on?the abs system only effects the pedal when you are stopping quickly to activate the system. you still have a hydrualic brake pressure problem. are the rear brakes shoes or pads? rear shoes out of adjustment can cause a low brake pedal.even though the master cylinder has been replaced doesn't mean you got a good part.if the part was a remanufactered part very likely it is bad. to determine if it is the master cylinder, plug off the lines from the side off the master cylinder and hit the brake pedal. if the pedal stays up look for a problem elsewhere in the system. if the pedal drops the the master cylinder is defective.

if something goes wrong with abs the brake system it reverts back to standard system!! If you can pump brake pedal up and hold it and start engine and it drops thats normal.You say low pedal if you go 15mph on road and check where pedal is when brakes apply.Power brakes will push aLMost to floor while stopped but while moveing you`ll almost go to slide or will go into slide if pedal is pushed to floor.Get on some gravel at 10 mph and hit brakes to a complete stop get out and check to see if all 4 tires slid or 2 front or only 2 rear. this will get you closer to problem good luck.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 2003 kia spectra? It feels like you have to push the break pedals down to the floor in order for the car to stop. They seem to need tightening, but there doesn't seem...


The rear brakes on the Spectra will always engage less than the front brakes. If you have to push hard on the brake pedal then you probably have air in the brake lines from the last brake pad replacement. The brakes need to be bled with this method: Use 1/8 inch 2 foot long hose from parts store and attach from bleeder valve ball on the brake caliper to a bottle partially filled with brake fluid. End of hose should be submerged in bottle. With second person holding brake pedal to floor, slowly turn bleeder valve counter clockwise (loosen tiny bit) with wrench and watch for dirty brake fluid to create bubbles in the bottle. When bubbles start, quickly tighten bleeder valve back to tight. Second person lifts foot while valve is tight and then pushes pedal to floor again and THEN you again open bleeder valve slowly turning counter clockwise and watch for bubbles. Repeat until no more bubbles can be created in the bottle where the hose is submerged. Move to next caliper and repeat. For a firm brake pedal you will need to repeat this on all four calipers. My 2003 Kia's rear brake pads "fell apart" and never wore out in 190000 miles because they do not get used. The braking power is primarily in the front disk brakes on this model. Removing and replacing the rear drum brake linings did not even require me to bleed the brake lines. They weren't that tight before or after the replacement procedure.

Parking brake pedal goes to floor


Hello;
The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
Thanks;
