On older vehicles rust can be a major factor in how your brakes work. You probably have a problem with the calipers not floating properly because the brake pads are jammed in place by rust. You will probably need to purchase new brake pads, discs and possibly new brake sliders . Take the calipers off , knock out the brake pads, and carefully take of the shiny brake sliders. The rust is under the sliders. Two bolts hold the caliper mount on , it will be easier to work on if you remove it from the vehicle. Take a file and clean the rust off the iron caliper mount till there is only metal. Coat the filed surfaces on the caliper mount with anti seize and put the sliders and the pads back on. Make sure the new pads float properly (not jammed like before) and reassemble. I have had several old Mitsubishi's with rust on the caliper mount that did the same thing. Wear a mask, it is a dirty job but filing off the rust should fix the problem.

Knocking noise around the front passenger wheel area!?


Do you feel it in the steering wheel? if so it could be the intermediate steering shaft. If not it could be a sway bar link or bushing.

There is a squeaking sound coming from the front right side when the car moves forward or backward the sound is stronger when moving slower. The sound is there even if the engen is off and push the car by...


This may be the brake pads warning scrapper. The break pads have a scraper on them to let you know it is getting time to replace them. As you drive and they wear more and more it will get loader and loader. Pull the wheel and check the pads, depends on the wheels you have, with some wheels you can see the pads without pulling the wheel off.

The van smells and the lug nuts are gettign burning hot after it is driven for only 10 minutes.


my best guess would be a brake pad or caliper that is sticking on the "on" position. This will cause the brake to generate a high amount of heat and it will heat up the lugnuts. the smell should smell like burning brakes because that is what is happening. the smell itself is hard to describe . if it gets extremely hot you will see smoke coming from the brake that is not working correctly. if it is one brake doing it the steering should also "pull" to the side of the problem. right wheel brake dragging will cause the vehicle to "pull" or verr to the right side.

Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.
