I have a 98 Chevy k2500 and whenever i lightly press the brake pedal my rear brakes lock up, and my front brakes dont do anything and i go sliding down the road, brake fluid, and lines are good, and i...


Do both wheels lock or just one. If you have a bositive rearend this may be hard to tell. With that age of truck you may have loose rubber in the flexable hoses that connect the pistons to the tubing at the wheels.. this aged flexable hose or hoses my be causing your problem. Just a suggestion. I have had this hapen on older vehicles

Did complete brake job on 1997 Ford Escort wagon no abs rear shoes, drums, lines, wheel cylinders,even changed the block at the rear were the lines go in & out of. Front lines hoses pads, caliplers...


is brake pedal hard to push down without engine running ,if so proceed to step two and thats to start engine and then push on brake and if pedal softer to push then the servo is working ,now if excessive pedal travel with engine running then remove the rear drums ,make sure the outside lip is cleaned out and then adjust the brake shoes manually till they rub when you turn the drum ,this will cure it but remember that it has to bed in of course new pads brake disks ,new shoes and drums it has to bed in so give it a chance .

I replaced all 4 brakes on my 98 chevy malibu. for some reason i am not getting pressure back. but am being told i dont need to bleed the brakes. should i anyway. or could the adjusted on the rear drums...


Both air in the brake lines and rear drums too far out of adjustment will cause the pedal to go to the floor repeatedly.

Bleed from the wheel that's farthest away from the master cylinder first, typically driver's side rear. Then bleed the others, ending with the one that's closest to the master cylinder. Generally, right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

Adjust the rear brakes until you hear them rub a bit as you turn the wheel, then back off a couple of notches. Be sure to use the brakes when backing up at first, let them adjust themselves up to where they should be.

IM WORKING ON A 88 OLDS 98 I REPLACED THE MASTER CYL. TWICE BOTH HOSES PADS ADJUSTED THE REAR BRAKES AND BLED 2 QTS. OF FLUID THROUGH IT AND STILL I HAVE A CRAPPY PEDAL IT FEELS LIKE THERE IS NO PRESSURE...


Have you changed the brake hoses on the front going to the brake caliper?If not,this could be the problem,also,when bleeding,only pump the pedal one time upon releasing the bleeder screw,do not pump the pedal,start at the master cylinder,then the right rear,and the left rear,and the right front and left front in that order,adjust the rear brakes to where the brakes are dragging pretty good,but are not locking up,

I have a 98 Nissan Pathfinder. I noticed that the brake light keeps on even while driving or even parked and keys out and car is locked. WHen i press brake pedal, i hear a click noise once. Just one click...


check the brake light switch. when you step on the brake pedal, it allows the 'normally open' switch to move to the 'contact position'. If it's not broken, it may just need adjusted, or a shot of WD40 if it sticks.

No brakes


Hi Robert!

When bleeding the fronts and the pedal does not go down all the way, stand on the pedal HARD and see if it won't go down then...

The proper sequence is to bleed fronts FIRST... if you had done this, you probably could have avoided this problem... but no worry, it is just a nuisance!

If you still have a problem after trying this, you might have a master cylinder problem... the seals to the fronts might be leaking, not able to build pressure...

So try this and let me know how it goes, and DON't FORGET: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for helping you!

Thanks!
