It only has 30,000 miles on it and the rear brakes squeal when applied when first driven cold. Does not do it after it has been driven and warmed up.

Thats usually because the factory uses metallic pads/shoes and metal to metal grinding will squeal until heated up. if its drum brakes in rear, put it in reverse and back up then hits brakes to adjust them.

Brakes typically only last about mas 30k miles. might be the brake lining warning shims letting you know its low or that plus glazed rotors/ drums needing to be replaced and or cut.

2012 Hyundaii Accent with 30,000 miles. Rear brakes gone,is this possible


Yes especially if you are heavy footed on brakes. Do you coast to a slow then apply or are you waiting till close to required stop point?
Brake pads can be of different grades and wear quickly if of low grade. Are your rotors gone too or just the pads?

Car shakes when brakes are applied after being driven for about 30 minutes. Brake pads (front & rear) are fine and tires have about 10 miles.


rotors are probbably warp from heat or corroded heavely (check inner surface harder to see)

I have a 2006 Freestar with a 3.9 Engine . When it is cold it has a miss when i step on it. But it gets better when it starts to warm up. Almost seems like a spark plug miss


Spark Plugs ---change at 70,000 miles
O2 Sensors--change at 100,000 miles (front 2 only)
Gas Filter--every 3 years/30,000 miles
Air Filter ---every 3 years/blow off once every year
MAF Sensor---Clean once a year or more often

Ignition Coils--- most definitely will go bad,at
least 1 a year. (Any Check Lights or Codes ? )

When cold, it isn't in closed-loop, and runs on
Long Term Fuel Trim--not on O2 Sensors ,until
warm

Let it warm up at least 4 minutes in cold weather,
go light on the gas for first 2 miles

The brakes on my '05 350z needed new rotors on the front and new pads all around after 30,000 miles. Midas did the work and the brakes have squealed ever since. I would like to do the brake work myself...


My brother in law is a mechanic and he did the barkes and rotors in less than 30 minutes on mine. They are fairly easy to do as I sat in on the process.

I have a 2008 Honda LXP purchased Novemebr 2008. It has 21000 miles on the clock. From and since 15,000 miles I heard a grinding sound when I applied the brakes after the car was stationary for over 10...


from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material

Hyundai elantra 2006 Squealling but stops when applying breaks.


Easiest way first.....if the belt is squealing (at idle), spray it with belt dressing or WD-40.....if it stops....may be the belt or the bearings in the alternator....if it continues only with driving.....brake wear indicator letting you know...brake job due!

Please let me know if this helps!!!

When backing up and sometimes turning right my brakes(?) make a squealing sound. Almost as though a pebble is caught and grinding on something. Honda 2004 accord-50.000miles. I was told I needed new brakes...


Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.
