Brakes and Tires

Parent Category: Auto Parts and Repairs
Vehicles require brakes and tires to be steered and controlled. Tires allow better vehicle performance by providing a flexible cushion to absorb the shock, while brakes control the spin of the tires, thus controlling the speed of the vehicle.
If you need to replace the pads only, it can cost about $20 and  more depending on state and city. If you need to replace rotors  or/and calipers, it might cost $400 to $500 on average and more.

If I had to just go from memory, and I haven't seen a neon in years... I would say 19mm for the lug nuts, 6mm or 7mm Allen for caliper bolts, flat screwdriver to aid in caliper removal and use your preferred method of pushing the caliper back ie C-clamp, channel locks, caliper depressing tool etc

Goodyear is my guess. There is no best tire for everything. It depends on what you arelooking for and how much you want to pay. You can get the longestmileage warranty or the smoothest and quietest ride or the beststopping power but the same tire may not give you all of them. Thetire that works best...

Lots of pictures. Be careful. Use side cutters to grab the springs. Don't worry they won't cut. You can use vice grips too. Make sure you reset the star wheel adjuster so that the drum is somewhat hard to put on so that you know the pads are adjusted to the point where they will actually work. If...
yes as long as you buy a 12'' tire, and have more than enoughclearance, or raise the torch keys all the way up
You should get a manual before you start, removing the shoes will require the disassembly of the brake hardware and it all needs to go back together the way it came apart, if you do not get a manual at least do them one at a time so you can refer to the other side if you forget. jack it up, block...

Unfortunately, there is no "fix" for a leaky brake line other than completely replacing it. Brake lines are under extreme pressure and NOTHING will stop the leak. Attempts at patching a brake line only endanger the occupants in the vehicle when it busts free (and it will)posing a crash hazard. If...

If the vehicle is a rear-wheel drive, the tires should be able to  rotate when not in contact with the ground - unless the brake is  set to stop the rotation. If it is a front-wheel drive, the tires  should not rotate unless the vehicle is in neutral - likewise if  4-wheel drive is engaged.
  == Answer ==   Most are self-adjusting   Try backing up and stopping vehicle using the parking brake 3-4 times
That would depend on the size of the tire.
Hey Bob==Ever since 1982 tires have had a tendency to cup and I really don't know of what causes it. I have heard all kinds of diagnoises but none that I find are true.

Hey Andy=I presume the handle will release the brake but the rear wheels still won't move. The problem is that rear shoes rust to the drums when you run through water or if your car sits a long time in humid weather. Sometimes it is hard to get them unstuck.You may have to take the wheels off and...

Grease three flat washers and a new nut. Put on first the three washers, then the nut. Use an impact wrench to tighten...

Answer . \nDepends on 2 things, Do they shake when you step on the brakes or are there grooves in your rotors? If you answer yes to either of those 2 questions I would say yes
  The quick answer is no. Off the top of my head the reason is this. The bolt pattern from the Pathfinder is probably not the same as the Suburban. And the tires on the Pathfinder are probably not rate high enough to carry the weight of the suburban safely.

The only other thing I can think of is a problem with the master cylinder. Something inside that isn't holding the pressure as it should.
in older cars with 4 wheel drum brakes riding the brakes down a hill will heat up the drums causing the brakes to fail. another cause is brake lines failure another cause is leaking wheel cylinders shall i go on? The most common part that fails in a braking system is the Master Cylinder.

  == Answer ==   Who's at fault with a tire blowout?
  Just something to add, if your replacing the rotors, damage by hammer should be of little concern. But DO be cautious of studs and other things in that area.     == Answer ==       Use lots of WD40 on the studs. Let it sit for a while. Get a rubber mallet or a deadblow hammer...

If you are repairing spongy brakes you want to inspect for any leaks in the lines first. Look for oily spots on the break lines and callipers. Check under the master cylinder as well.

If the outdoor temp is around 35*or lower, it probably means nothing other than you are near the balance point when the unit should switch to auxiliary (electric) heat. At 35* or so & lower the heat pump alone can no longer extract heat from the ambient air effectively and you may also develop...
== Answer ==   NO! When rotating the tires, look closely at the tread. If you see any abnormal wear, such as uneven wear, feathering, or dipping. Have an alignment performed. Otherwise just rotate.   Toe adjustments are common, and is the fasted tire-eating adjustment. An alignment should be...
Sure it can but this is a swap I would not recommend at all. Reason being the 60 series tire will be 6% smaller in overall diameter and this would be a horrible swap. Your speedometer will read 63.8 at a true 60 mph. Your fuel mileage, handling, and ride will suffer. If you wish to go to a 60 series...
