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.
no and maybe it not connected to your car motor and it motor.
No. The size, profile, and sidewall construction of the tire itself dictate the recommended pressure. The size and shape of the wheel itself will restrict the kinds and sizes of tires that will fit.
In my area it will average around $50. It depends on the vehicle.
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
1. block rear wheel so it won't roll; 2) loosen lug nuts; 3) jackup wheel with jack under cross frame; 4) place jack stand underspring support & lower jack to rest PU on stand but keep jackin place holding some weight; 5) remove lug nuts and wheel; 6)remove the 2 bolts that hold the brakes to the...
The min thickness should be stamped on the backside of the rotor,pull and examine.

No, 17 inch rims can not fit on 16 inch wheels.
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...
It is a special bulb available at the dealership and not many otherplaces.
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...
inertia If your vehicle does not have ABS (anti-lock brake system) and you brake hard, the wheels lock up and skid, now you know longer can steer the vehicle in the direction you want to.
If you suffer a tire blowout while driving, the type of vehicle youare driving will play a major part in your ability to maintaincontrol.Vehicles such as SUVs and vans are much more prone toflipping over after suffering a blowout because of their highcenter of gravity. Vehicles such as sedans are...
pull hard in the direction of the deflated tire
Answer . Ignition rotor and cap?. Remove distributor cap usually clips or screws. Rotor should lift off - replace in same position should have a "key" slot to insure proper position. Install new distributor cap and transfer wires one at a time to insure proper placement
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...
It depends on the quality of the pads you go with. They're generally around $25-35 for a pair, so you're looking at somewhere around $60 for all four pads. Rotors are around $45 a piece depending on quality and size.
The owners maunual for the MAXIM XJ650 is 32lbs Front & 36lbs Rear. If you are running stock size tires and keep your suspension stiff. I would run them 2lbs less for better grip and banking turns especially in damp conditions. If weather is ideal (DRY) or riding w/passenger, then keep them at the...
If they are disc brakes only and not bisc and drum brake combination. 1) remove the cap on the brake fluid reservoir 2) After removing the wheels open bleed screws and let the brake fluid pressure out (make sure the reservoir cap stays off during this whole procedure) 3) Them proceed to...
If the vehicle is a rear-wheel drive, the tires should be able torotate when not in contact with the ground - unless the brake isset to stop the rotation. If it is a front-wheel drive, the tiresshould not rotate unless the vehicle is in neutral - likewise if4-wheel drive is engaged.
Answer . Most are self-adjusting. Try backing up and stopping vehicle using the parking brake 3-4 times
Dot 3 or Dot 4. and if manual the clutch fluid is the same as the brake fluid (Dot3, Dot4)
That would depend on the size of the tire.
Either one of the four ABS sensors went bad, or most likely your ABS computer failed and needs to be rebuilt.
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. Some brands of tires are worse about cupping than others. I think the manufacturers changed the rubber compound formula but I can't...
After you remove the brake pads and break assembly, tap on thebrake rotors with a hammer or mallet. The brake rotors will comeloose. Slide the brake rotors off.
The brake fluid level gradually goes down as the brake pads , brake shoes wear

If the outside diameter changes, then the speedometer will change
Under the hood, immediately before the driver. The brake booster is immediately behind it, and it will be a frosted white/translucent receiver. If it is low, either there is a leak in the system (not good), or the pads are severaly worn and need to be replaced. Get the brakes looked at by a...
At the lever or at the brakes?\nThe Bently Manual for your year will tell all. I have a couple of Supers so not sure if they are the same.
Answer . Remove wheels. Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place. Remove caliper mounting bolts. Slide caliper off rotor. Use a "C" clamp to fully retract piston into caliper body. Replace inner and outer pads. Re-Install caliper. REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTOR PRIOR...
As a rule of thumb, once they get to about the same thickness or less as the backing plate-time to change, since they go quickly from there. Also there are rivets inside so you can't use 100% & those rubbing on rotor/drums not good. The rotors do most the work & wear faster. Many people routinely...
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...

Brake pads should last approximately 50,000 miles. The life of abrake pad is dependent upon the driver and the driving conditions.
Pros of Ceramic: - In general, they last longer than semi-metallic - They can take slightly more abuse - They leave minimal brake dust, and the dust that is left is less noticeable-a nice complement to chrome and alloy wheels. Cons of Ceramic: - Ceramic brakes need to warm up a little...
Are you talking car fires, forest fires, house fires? The amount of oxygen consumed in a fire will depend on many factors including their size and intensity. It is easiest to explain when we think of a house fire. Imagine a closed off room with a small fire burning in it, as the fire grows it...
I have a 1998 kia sephia and i would think they are the same. There are two rubber boots that have caps on the end that pull off. These give you access to the Allen head bolts that hold the caliper on. Once the caliper is removed you have to remove two more bolts that hold the bracket on.Then the...
The brake pads are actually shoes. The emergency brake relies on the rear brake shoes being applied by tension on the emergency brake cable against the rear drums to hold the car stationary. In other words, the rear brakes double as the emergency (parking) brakes.
Open the drivers door and you'll see a little door in the side of the dashboard. Remove the cover and you're there.
Answer . Stabilizer bar or bushings. Could also be stabilizer bar end links.. Answer . If it is a 1/2 ton and acts like an older car with a bad idler arm - have the rack and pinion checked. A recall was quitely announced in late 2000 regarding the factory use of improper an rack - too small for...
You will need to remove the tire and wheel. You can remove thebrake pad and break assembly, by removing the brake spring andcaliper. Loosen the rotors with a hammer. The rotors will slideoff. Reverse the process to install the new rotors.
The calipers are part of the brake system that applies the brakepads to the rotors by means of hydraulic pressure applied from themaster cylinder. They have any where from 1 to 4 pistons thatsqueeze the pads together against the brake rotors creatingfriction that slows/stops the vehicle. . ++ . The...
Answer . Remove Wheels. Remove caliper mounting bolts. Slide caliper off rotor. Slide rotor off hub
Open the drivers door and on the end of the door is an information sticker The sticker will show the original tire size on the Explorer from the factory My 1995 Ford Explorer XLT came with P235 / 75 / R15 all terrain tires
Open the drivers door ( or left side door ) and you will see an information sticker on the latching pillar that shows the original tire size on the vehicle from the factory ( I believe it was 165 / 70 / R13 )
You need to have the brake fluid changed immediately. Washer fluid will damage all of the seals in the brake system
You ask the people at the not only have very knowledgable people but they have the largest Kia Car Parts inventory at great prices. James Mont Satisfied Customer and Kia Enthusiast.
Yes, it is in a manual transmission vehicle since the flywheel is also used as part of the clutch as well as providing the necessary mass to reduce the effect of the torque pulses generated when each cylinder fires. In most cases in vehicles with automatic transmissions something called a torque...
it depends on the quadratic formula of zenon divided by element k multiplied by the proximity exhaust pipe's suspension
You may have a damaged belt inside one of the front tires. Trymoving the front tires to the rear and the rears to the front andsee if the problem follows the tires.

Answer . there's nothing to it. The shoe is putting pressure on the drum so you just have to yank it off basically. Just keep wiggling and waggling it back and forth, eventually it will slide right off.
Traditional brakes: For each of 4 wheels, repeat several times: 1 Verify that reservoir is full. 2 Apply downward pressure to brake pedal. 3 Open bleeder valve. 4 Close bleeder valve 5 Release downward force from bleeder valve. For some ABS vehicles: 1 First do as with traditional...
In general an air compressor is made up of three parts. They arethe air pump, the motor and the tank that holds the compressed air.
They usually run between 32/32 34/36 or 36/36 depending on the year(1994-1999) Hope this helps!
MOT dont fail pads they fail brakes provided they meet performance criteria they will pass they may fail if they are clearly so thin that they squeel or are damaging the rotor or will be so by the next inspection, they may give a warning if there is less than 4-5mm down from the original 8-10 mm...
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
More information: I went in because I was having electrical issues which they could not fix but insisted my front brakes are at 20% and rear brakes are at 0%.
When a tire is properly inflated it will be level to the ground. Over inflated and the middle of the tire has the most pressure on the ground. Under inflated and the sides of the tire have the most pressure on the ground.
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.
its on the vin plate on your door
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.
That's going to depend on what engine you have. If you have theCummins ISX, it'll be on the left side of the vehicle, towards thefront of the engine, and the high pressure fuel pump will sit aboveit.
The powered tires. On a front wheel drive car, the front wheels. On rear wheel drive, the rear wheels.
The tires that actually drive. For example if your car is a front wheel drive, then the front wheels should be chained. If it is a real wheel drive vehicle, then the rear wheels should be chained. If it is an all-wheel drive then you could chain all four wheels.
look under the back of your truck. there should be a steel line running from each brake cylinder to a splitter about midway down the axel. there should also be a metal line running from the splitter to the fluid reseviour in your engine compartment. to remove the lines: find the proper size wrench....

Answer . \nRemover center bench seat. Lift the carpet and mat up. You will see a long shiny plate. Remove the screws and the adjustment is under ther plate.\n. \
\nDid you regrind the plates and are the new shoes the same type?\nReplacing the shoes only means they have to wear a bit to fit the grooves in the old plates. \nGive it time. Also rebleed the brake cyclinders and get rid of that contaminated fluid.
If one back wheel has locked up I don't think the abs has anything to do with it. You may have a stuck/locked up parking brake cable or a stuck/locked up brake caliper.
