axle lube I had a similar problem with both sides of the rear axle on my '97. The fluid coated both parking brake pads. There is a small vent tube that comes out of the top of the differential. Wasps had filled the top end with mud and every time the axle heated up oil was pushed out of the seals. Disconnect the tube from the differential, insert an air compressor nozzle and blow out the tube. I had to replace both parking brakes and the seals.

Why do your rear brakes on your S10 have no pressure?

Usually, a loss of pressure in your brake system means that there is a hole somewhere in the system. A leaking brake line or a punctured reservoir could cause a loss of pressure. A bad master cylinder could also cause a loss of pressure in the back brakes.

For a 95 Ford Windstar the brakes went and the front brakes have been changed with new pads and rotors - Back brakes were adjusted and there are still no brakes - what else to do to fix it?

what you have could be one of three problems. Check your reservoir to see if it has plenty of brake fluid, bleed your brakes,they may of lost the fluid while changing brakes. Also, if you have a vacuum leak it will cause your brakes not to work. Or it could be your master cylinder or your vacuum booster that has went bad. brewski

How do you clean brake pads?

Only use products designed to clean brakes. Most auto parts stores carry brake cleaner. If you use anything else it could leave a residue that could cause your brakes to fail.
