No car should be hard to stop. go to dealer ask to test drive a newer Camry and see if it feels the same, some people who are not used to ABS or 4 wheel disc brakes may not like the feel . this could be just a condition to get used to , i know i had old cars that would lock up quick but newer cars are made not to do that. hope this helps.

Causes and solution of brake engagement at slopy or bumpy terrain when applied,camry 1998 v6 xle


It is hard to be certain, but your brake discs may have become warped. This causes a pulsating feeling in the pedal. They can be replaced fairly easily.

My brakes feel like they arent going to stop.


This is most dangerous for you. I think that your power brake boost has failed, possibly due to a split vacuum hose. You can test this...
With the engine off, pump the brake pedal hard a few times. Then press down hard on the pedal and start the engine. You should feel the pedal sink perceptibly under your foot.
If this seems OK then your brake pads may be down to the metal on one or more wheels even though you here no noise. Remove the front wheels and have a look, as on p22 here (a later model).

If the pedal feels spongy underfoot, and you can get better brakes by pumping the pedal vigorously, then there is air in the brake system, and it will need to be bled, as on p9

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Brake pedal gets hard when braking, no normal braking


If there is a malfunction in the brake servo assist system, and your assistance is reduced, the brake pedal will become hard and you will need much more pressure on the brake pedal to stop the car.

It is possible that there is a vacuum leak in the brake servo assist system and you are only getting 50% or less assistance when you are applying the brakes.

You need to have the vehicle checked out without delay because if you lose brake assistance entirely it will be very difficult to stop the car.

Brake rotors and pads recently replaced. Seem to


You could stop the noisy brake problem by applying special adhesive to the back of the brake pads. They are available at the autoparts stores.If you buy high quality brake pads, you would see the anti-noise shims included in the package.

As for the oil dripping issue: have the required quantity of oil in the crankcase-3.2 quarts to start when you change engine oil. Inspect the oil-pan gasket, drain-plug, oil-pump seal

Toyota Camry 2005-Brake pads noise problem


The rear brakes should last from 30000 to 60000 miles or 50000 to 100000 kms. So something is wearing out your brakes too fast. Are you doing the work or some shop. I also assume you have discs and not drums since you mention pads and calipers. I am not certain but usually you need a tool to turn the pistion in when putting in new pads. I would make sure the pads are releasing properly by raising rear of car, stepping on brakes a few times (with engine off and try see if wheels are free by spinning by hand, also try to use handbrake a few times and release it and see if wheels spin freely. Maybe rears always applied. Notice burning smell, are discs glazed from heat? Are you using really cheap pads. Also check the proportioning valve which will decrease pressure to rear brakes during hard braking. Do you notice rear wheels squeling during hard braking. Do you have antilock brake system? Also are you using good quality pads and rotors.

2002 camry breaks


take off brake caliper, take off your brake pads. check the sliders. sliders are on the side of the bracket. see if they are moving freely in and out. im pretty sure they are seized. that's why your pedal is soft and sinks down really fast when applied.

2005 camry tail light blows


Does it work when you press the brake pedal? If so, sounds like you have a faulty bulbs. IF it doesn't work when brake pedal is applied I would check the fuse under the hood or left kick panel on the driver side.
