Question about 2006 Kia Rondo

2 Answers

It is a "straining motor or actuator sound" only when at idle with brake pedal pushed. As soon as the bake is off it goes way. This started about 3 weeks ago with 10,000 miles. Obviously still in warranty. What could this be? My local dealer is unrespective of having to take time off work to bring in a vehicle.

You should try to adjust the drum brakes,

  • Locate the brake drum for the side you will be adjusting. The brake drum is located directly behind the wheel hub. The wheel hub is bolted to the brake drums via the lug nuts.
  • Locate the adjustment window. The adjustment window is located in the back of the brake drum. There is a black rubber stopper inserted into the window that keeps water and road debris away from the brake assembly.
  • Remove the rubber stopper using a flat head screwdriver and applying outward pressure to the stopper.
  • Locate the adjustment wheel using a flashlight. The adjustment wheel will have teeth cut into it all the way around that are used to engage the brake spoon and allow for adjustment.
  • Engage the brake spoon with one of the teeth on the adjustment wheel and rotate the wheel clockwise until the shoes just contact the drum, moving from tooth to tooth as the wheel turns.
  • Reinstall the rubber stopper into the adjustment window by hand.

    Sounds like you have a defective vacuum assist brake booster... Make sure you have a good vacuum supply with the engine running before condemning booster. If vacuum supply is between 17-20" of vacuum at idle and it is properly concreted to booster then the booster is defective

    well aside from the boosters you may also want to check the possitioning rotor and calipers. there is a possibility that something slipped, or leaked, check for brake fluids and try to trace where it is comming from.

    the picture below shows how to disassemble the brakes of an Accord, the only special tool you will need is a ball joint fork to seperate the upper and lower ball joints. You have to remove the whole steering knuckle assembly to get to the bolts in back of the rotor and hub assembly.

    Hissing sound brake related


    hissing sound is a vacuum leak somewhere on the power assist part of the system as in a bad booster..try this test..with the car off..push the brake pedal down a few times and release all the vacumm and see how far the pedal goes down..after a few pumps with your foot it should become hard and drop just a bit..once it feels"solid' or hard..hold the pedal down with moderate pressure.. and start the car back up..the pedal should drop a bit further but less than halfway.. if it drops further it needs attention..good luck especially if it goes almost to the floor..

    This problem, without a complete diagnosis of the vehicle, may be indicating a problem with the brake pedal position switch, which is located on top of the brake pedal. When actuated (or on), the switch will draw power from the system and leave the brake lights on. It is entirely possible that the vehicle had been driving with the brake lights constantly on. It is also possible, and I have seen this happen, that the switch develops a short and draws constant power while at the same time leaving the brake lights out completely. It is often evidenced by melted wires at the connection to the switch. Then again, any other item can be causing parasitic current draw.

    In order to rule out other issues, a complete charging system test is needed. It could be just as likely that the system is so low on battery voltage and any noise under the dash is a motor or actuator drawing a small amount of power trying to start. Pushing the brake pedal closes a large circuit, which can drain the remaining power and stop the actuator or motor in question.

    Sounds like the master cylinder is bypassing ! It would need to be replaced ! Make sure none of the brake lines are damaged and flush out all the old fluid ! Another possible cause is the abs actuator dump valve could be leaking but most mechanics start with the master cylinder and be sure and bleed them very good : it only takes a few small air bub les to give you a soft pedal ! Good luck

    What are the proper steps to bleeding your brakes on a 1990 vw golf deisel


    For left hand drive vehicles: (If the car does not have ABS system you do not need any diagnostic equipment!)

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You need using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car in order to bleed the ABS block. Follow instructions by scantool equipment for bleeding the ABS block.


    1. This bleeding procedure requires two people. Remove the brake system reservoir cap, and fill up with new brake fluid until "MAX" level is reached.
    2. Lift the car, or use a channel for access under vehicle.
    3. Put the gearbox in "N" - Neutral position, or in "P" - Parking position for automatic transmission.
    4. Start the engine and push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor.
    5. Begin with the rear right wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
    6. Repeat steps no.#4 and no.#5 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

    7. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
    8. Continue with the rear left wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
    9. Repeat steps no.#7 and no.#8 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

    10. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
    11. Continue with the front right wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
    12. Repeat steps no.#10 and no.#11 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: All the time check the brake fluid level in the brake system reservoir, and fill up if necessary!

    13. Push the brake pedal firmly for 4 - 5 times to the floor, and maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling.
    14. Continue with the front left wheel. Another person remove the dust cap and loose the brake caliper bleeding screw until the brake pedal goes to the floor. At this moment maintain the brake pedal pushed to the floor, engine idling, and tight the brake caliper bleeding screw. Use a plastic hose: one end connected to the brake caliper bleeding screw, and another end inside a recovery bottle for used brake fluid.
    15. Repeat steps no.#13 and no.#14 until no air flows through the brake caliper bleeding screw. Tight the brake caliper bleeding screw, and put the dust cap in their place.
    16. Now the brakes are bleeded. Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. Fill up with new brake fluid until "MAX" level is reached. Put back the brake reservoir cap.
    17. Test the car brake system. The brake pedal movement no more than 1/3 of total stroke until the floor, when brake pedal is applied. Maximum admissible is 1/2 of total stroke.
