first check for contamination, pull master cylander cap off, if it has rubber underneath the cap and it's expanded or heavily distorted a petroleum product (such as oil) is in the system. the whole brake system will have to be redone, including brake hoses, mc, prop valve, height sensor, and any thing else rubber relatted in the system. also over adjusted rear brakes or over adjusted e brake can cause this. but check for contamination first this is a serious safety issue.
The brakes are the primary cause of stopping a car whilst driving.
This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.
yes, its really risky because driving with bad brakes can probably cause a hydraulic failiure your brakes can fail and you dont want to know what happens so get your brakes checked
If you are driving on wet roads there is no way to avoid those effects. Most brakes dry out very quickly when applied.
Possibly bad wheel bearing.
Assuming you are talking about avoiding a large animal on the road (while driving), you should slowly pump your brakes and hit the animal square on. Swerving or trying to avoid the animal could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
Your brakes are dragging, likely the pads are worn down to the steel. Hope this is helpful, www.TunerTools.com
Accumulation of brake dust over time will cause the calipers to stick and the brakes will heat up from the friction. They might need cleaning and relubing. Driving with your foot resting on the brake pedal will also do it.
(Charging System , AC , Power Steering)Fails Continued driving will cause Engine to Overheat . Risk of Serious Damage !
Warped rotors. Driving using the left foot to brake causes the rotors to heat up. Quenching the hot rotors by driving thru water will cause them to warp. The warped rotors cause the pedal to pulsate.
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.
Sticky caliper's... Check your break calipers...
sounds like you need new brakes
speeding, if the car's brakes are broken, you don't know how to drive, not following the laws of driving, slippery roads, no light, raining, snowing.Another VIew: The biggest single cause of vehicle accidents is INATTENTION TO DRIVING.
Either warped rotors or drums can cause pulsating. Apply the parking brake slowly while going about 15mph and see if t pulsates. If it does, it is the drums that need turning. If not, it is the rotors that need turning.
This will allow the engine to raise up off it's mount. This may cause damage. Repair this ASAP. And if you must drive the vehicle, take off very slowly.
A warped rotor can cause a vehicle to have an intermediate hop in one of the wheels. Check to see if the brakes of the car need to be serviced.
If it is just that rim,your brakes could be dragging.Inspect,or have them inspected by a Chevrolet dealer or an ASE certified mechanic.
If brakes are sticking and you drive for a long distance, then yes
The most common cause is from the brakes overheating from being overworked.
you need new brakes
A common reason is that the front rotors have warped. Go check out WikiAnswers on the topic of "warped brake rotors". Rotors should wear out smoothly in normal driving. Use of the brakes that generate lots of heat (hard braking, riding the brakes) will result in warped rotors.
It probably knacker your engine. It will cause the pistons to fly loose and out of time. This will cause the ngine to be rebult, might gauge out your sleeves and crack your engine head. Basics! Lav
