Use a good quality ceramic pad and make sure that your rear brakes are adjusted properly.Also,check your braking habbits.Do you keep a foot resting on the pedal.Do you do a lot of city driving(stopping and starting often)..Good Luck!!!!

Brakes dont work


I would pinch off all lines, then check the pedal, if you got good pedal then you know master is bled right. Next pull one clamp at a time and check pedal again till you find the one with air in it still.

6 months ago i replaced brakes on 2006 toyota carolla the driver side brake pads were faulty the toyota dealer said he has to change all pads, why do all the pads need changed?


you need a class in brakes. It's Brakes not bumper chrome.....
first of all ,
you do replace brakes by AXLE.
that is because, they both wear out at the same time!!!
and mixing brands of brakes left and right side (max dangerous, wow!)
and if you replace one bad set, say left. the right will fail soon.
so that means 2 times the costs. and more down time.
and 2 times constant pad checking, (and paranoia added, justified)
all this make senses.?
the rears will last 2 times front, so some folks do replace them only when near low end.

What causes the caliper on the front brakes of a 1996 dodge ram 1500 to stay closed? Just did the brakes less then 6 months ago by a mechanic.


Its a faulty brake caliper.Usally the caliper is old and rusty and corroded and sometimes it could be manufacture defect.

My car has 2 problems. I don't know if they are related. First I had "service engine " light on, test said "misfire cylinder 3" all spark plugs were change back on July 2010, 2 weeks...


You need to go to a differant mechanic sounds like he has no idea what he is doing.You should never have to change spark plugs three times in 6 months.But the brake problem is not related to the SEL light and I dont think the installed your brakes properly if the are worn out that fast also.

I am thinking about buying a 1996 Toyota Corolla sedan with 71,000 miles. In negotiating the price, I am concerned because it has the original TIMING BELT and while the front disc brakes were changed the...


Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.

My 2002 Buick Rendevous brakes have an occasional roughness.


I checked the wiring going to the front passenger tire. The clip located there was not holding the wires together tightly. I took them apart and made sure they were clean, then used a zip tie to hold the clip tight. I have driven the car for 4 days now and the problem is gone.

Rear Brakes


Brakes can vary in the amount of time that they last. For starters there are many diffrent grades of pads, the cheap pads last me about a month, but the good expensive pads last me 6-8months or so, and I drive really hard. So depending on how drive can determine how long they last. Usually you can replace your rear pads once for every two or three sets of front pads you replace as most of the braking work is done from the front. Pads are made intentionally to squeak when they are running down, so when you hear that squeak get em replaced, but if the rear's aren't squeaking just change the front and do the rears next time.

Good Luck
Hope this help
