What is wrong if the rear brakes do not seem to be catching on a 1998 Nissan 240SX after having the brakes changed?

Usually after brakes are changed, it takes time for it to break in. So the brakes wont be as "grippy" as before. If that does not solve your problem, then it might be because of air bubbles in the brake lines. Try bleeding the system. If that doesn't solve your problem, then it could be a problem with your calipers. You can fix it, but most people just get another one from the junk yard. Takes less time and it's cheap too. I was going to say it could be the master cylinder, but it wouldn't be. Because 240sx has a diagonal braking system. Which means if one cylinder fails then you would still have brakes in front right and rear left OR vice versa.

The brakes are not releasing and need to be brought back to whoever put them on.

Having ABS does not change how you bleed the brakes. Bleed them as you would if it did not have ABS.

Depends on where you are riding it. If you stay in bikeparks and backyards it's OK, but if you ride it in traffic you have to have brakes.

That depends on what type of transmission you have. The truck having air brakes doesn't affect that.

The Versa has a chain. Nissan recommends having it inspected at 100,000 miles.

Check your brake caliper pistons for seizing in their bore. Remove the brakes again and see if the piston compresses steadily under minimal pressure. Determine whether front or back due to discoloration of the surface of the rotors-blue means heat and that will determine front vs rear.

Any local Nissan dealer would have multiple Nissan Versa Hatchback models available. If one is not aware of having a local Nissan dealer, one can visit the Nissan USA website and enter their zipcode to view Nissan dealers near them.

You can catch HIV after a chlamydia infection, and having chlamydia increases your chances of catching HIV; but chlamydia won't turn into HIV.

change the front brake hoses, there is a small plastic inner hose that will break and restrict return fluid flow back to master cylinder thus causing brakes to lock and or drag Check the proportioning valve.

Having had vehicles with similar transmission changed, I would predict about 3,400 - 4,000.(USD) -To me this is where you have to evaluate if this change is a reasonable cost relevant to vehicle age and expected life.

The 1995 Nissan Maxima has a timing chain, not a timing belt. If the shop is telling you that you need to replace the engine's timing belt, time to find a different mechanic!

Im guessing you mean Catching HIV, not having HIV. And yes, if you swallow the semen of someone who is HIV positive, you can catch it from that.
