Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.

The brake light on my dash comes on once in a while. what does that mean....fluid or emergency problem? It's a 91 ford ranger pickup


is the break pedal soft or spongy is so check the level if low then check the lines and wheel cylinders for leaks if no leaks and good brakes and if the truck has anti-lock breaks it is more likly to be a abs sensor but also if no leaks and soft pedal could also be the master cylinder. if hard pedal then check the lines on the booster but that does not make the light come on. hope this helps

Break pedal sometimes vibrates when the breaks are applied. Also some sort of knocking sound coming from the hood when slowing down at low speeds


They have ABS and when you press the pedal hard the pedal vibrates. its the computer doing a pumping action for your. It grabs and releases the breaks so they dont lock up and it allowys you to stear your vehicles while the brakes are firmly pressed.

Front Passenger brakes rubbing


Dis brakes have residual pressure thar keeps the pads in constant contact with the roter.It is very light contact, so not to worry. If left is not in contact with rotor then chk it for loose wheel bearings.

I HAVE A 1998 dodge ram 318 1500 two wheel drive the abs and brake light come on but it brakes fine when the brake light and abs light go out i have to really push the pedal down to stop the petal feels...


you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps

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.

Toyota Camry 2000, break problem inconsistent


Could be a number of things. A lot of times the ABS sensors at the wheels get dirty. This is due to them being magnetic and a lot of brake pads are semi metallic so the dust sticks to the sensors and makes them fuction a little weird. Have someone clean the sensors. I try to pressure wash them everytime I wash the car. Hope this helps.

Grinding sound when step on break


Sounds like your brake pads/shoes need replaced. When the brake linings wear out, you have metal to metal when you step on your brake pedal. You may have to replace rotors/drums due to severe scarring.
