Misfiring "under load" is often an indication of problems with distributor cap, rotor, sparkplugs, plug wires or burned valves, depending on which apply to your particular engine..
Take off the brake calipers, but let the brake line be mounted. Attach the caliper to a string so that it does not hang by the brake hose. Take out the old brake pads. Compress the pistons together. You may need a special Saab tool for this. Apply some copper paste or similar grease to the sides of the caliper and mount the new brake pads. Check that everything runs smoothly before mounting everything back…
What should you do if your girlfriend just broke up with you and says she still loves you after 3 yrs but she is young and is not ready for commitment?
I have a 79 ford chatou 12 seater van. everything works the bulbs are good but the brake lights wont turn on when I step on the pedal. whats up? if its my brake switch should I change it out? or can it be fixed also which fuse is my brake lights? wouldn't the lights all be on one fuse? I have a 79 ford chatou 12 seater van. everything works the bulbs are good…
You have no brake lights on your 1998 cadillac catera All fuses are good everything else works What else can cause this?
With Nissan trucks from the 1990's, you pull and release the e-brake handle several times. If everything is working in the rear brake drums (springs, actuators, adjusting stars) then the e-brake will be adjusted. Sounds easy enough, but if things are seized up in the drum or cable, this method won't work.
How do you get the brake lights on your 1990 Honda Accord to turn off Everything else is turned off but the brake lights are still on and are draining the battery?
99 s-10 pickup your LR brake light will not light up when you push the brake but the blinker works why is this and what can i do everything seems to be able to work?
There is either a hairpin clip, retainer that you have to squeeze to release, or that holds everything in place on the pin that runs through the brake pushrod and spotlight switch. Look all the way to the right of the brake pedal arm for the clip it might also be mounted all the way to the left of brake pedal arm instead.
If everything else works but the brake lights, check the brake light switch. It's mounted up under the dash and when you push the brake pedal a spring loaded plastic rod extends, making the connection inside the switch to light the brake lights. This is a pretty common wear item.....and fairly inexpensive.
You need to remove the brake calipers, make sure that you push back the caliper pistons (monitor level of the fluid in the brake fluid reservoir, you might have to get rid of some). After that install you pads. Make sure that you have tighten everything properly. Press the brake pedal to check if your brakes are working. PS: Never press the brake pedal if brake system is not completely assembled.
98 mountaineer outside brake lights and doorlocks stopped working 3rd brake light works but stays on blinking dimly even when car is off already changed brake switch?
There should be a switch located on the shaft that the brake pedal is attached to. Check the wiring and listen for a click when the brake is depressed. If everything seems okay, use a wire to jump across the two contacts and see if the brake lights go on. If this fails, then you have a broken wire somewhere in your brake light circuit. Good luck.
Check out page 25 of the manual for adjusting the brake. http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0203049.pdf If adjusting the brake doesn't work you may just need to disassemble the brake assembly and clean some of the parts to free them up. If everything is working properly you might have to replace the brake linings. The brake linings last a very long time.
You can buy a brake parts assembly kit from your local part store, you will also need a brake cylinder and brake shoes. To disconnect the brake cylinder there are two screws and the brake line connected to the back of your hub. Whenever you take the rotor off draw out the confiuration of the springs, e brake cable, and self adjuster at bottom. Then put everything back in place. I re done mine for…
First check if bulbs and fuses are good and see if the back lights come on when you turn on the lights. If everything works and the bulbs and fuses are good then its most likely the brake switch on your brake pedal, its usually the only thing wired to the brake pedal. If its not that you might have a short somewhere but usually its either fuses or the brake switch, both are cheap…
Normally, a vehicle has ONE braking system that includes the brake pedal, the brake master cylinder, newer cars then have the Anti-Lock Braking System, then there are either disc type or drum type brakes at each wheel, and everything is connected with small metal and rubber hoses that allow the pressurized brake fluid to activate the brake pads and/or brake shoes that cause the friction necessary to slow your vehicle.
Have a 1976 Chevy PU that the brake sticks on the driver side you have replaced the pads and caliper and it still sticks?
I just had my rear brake shoes replaced 7 months ago and my repair shop says I need e-brake shoes. Is there a difference between rear brake shoes and e-brake shoes on a 1996 Ford Explorer Sport?
I'm assuming your 1996 Sport is like my 1995 Explorer XLT and has disc brakes front and rear that take brake pads . On the inside of the rear brake rotors is a small set of emergency / parking brake shoes . I know this because I had an emergency brake shoe stick on and was causing a vibration and the wheel to get hot so I had the e-brake shoes changed on both sides…
Figure out the cause of the fault, first. It could be physical, or it could be a matter of programming. These things require diagnosis to identify and isolate the exact problem in order to fix them. From my experience with Volvo trucks, they can be an electrical nightmare, and your problem is probably a short in the wiring somewhere.
