Bleed the brakes. It sounds like you have air in the system.
On a vehicle with anti lock brakes
That all depends on what's most important to you; good braking or low weight. Disc brakes offers better braking but are heavier. Rim brakes are lighter, but braking will suffer in wet conditions.
There is no 'set' answer for this question. Be aware that there are built-in warning devices on the brakes. When the pads are low you will begin hear a screeching sound whenever you apply the brakes. When you start hearing that sound consistently - it is time.
No, it locks up on the brakes
If the brakes on a 2003 Toyota 4Runner are locking up there is a problem with the calipers. The units should be inspected for wear, to avoid any serious injury.
common sense Listen for squeaking and feel for pulsating when braking. Too much of either and you should have them looked at.
Brakes wear and require maintenance. They should always "work as well as they used to". When you detect a change in the braking have a trusted mechanic inspect them asap.
It would probably cost at least $200. You should ask your local repair shop to specifically find out how much it would be to replace the brakes in your Toyota.
Anti-lock? As in "Anti-Lock Brakes"? Many cars don't come equipped with Anti-Lock Braking Systems. If you car is supposed to have anti-lock brakes and they are not working properly, you should have them fixed. You should never drive around with faulty brakes.
ABS = Anti-Lock Brake SystemIf you have this light come on while not braking, it most likely means there is a problem with the electronic controls in your brakes. If it comes on while you are braking, it means the Anti-Lock has kicked in. It should only do that however, if you are braking really hard.
If you hear any kind of noise upon braking, you should get your brakes checked. Sometimes it's just a matter of needing an adjustment. Brakes that do not work properly can be very dangerous to ignore.
No, if your car has ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) do not pump your brakes. The anti lock system does this for you.
WHEN SHOULD TIMING BELT BE CHANGED ON A 2000 TOYOTA 4RUNNER SR5? firstname.lastname@example.org
How often brakes should be changed depends on the type of brakes in the vehicle and the use of the bakes in the vehicle. However, the general rule is every 10,000 miles.
I just spoke with a Parts person at a local Toyota dealer. He told me that the 2004 Toyota Matrix requires Iridium spark plugs, which retails for about $12 at the dealership, and it should not need to be changed until 120,000 miles.
Assuming I understand your question: The brakes are worn on one side because they are only or primarily working on that side. This should cause the car to pull toward that side when braking.
are the tires the same size and did you take this to a shop they could of adjusted your brakes when the wheel were off i know at my shop when we tend to do tires f the rear brakes need to be adjusted we will do them in the tire package if this is the case after a good run in the car with a bit of braking it should go back to about the same as it was once pad make there new grooves
1) The bicycle's wheels have kinetic energy. 2) Then you apply the brakes. 3) After, the pads rub agaianst the wheel. 4) As a result, the bicycle stops. Rear brakes should be used for general breaking, the harder they are applied the faster the braking, front brake need to be used with caution not to be applied to hard as the weight is placed onto the front wheel when breaking, this weight make the front weel more effecting in braking less chance of lockup, if lock up is caused its very easy to loose control and could also cause endo where the back wheel can be raised up and rider goes over handle bars. Breaking should be avoided on corners, break before the corner is preferable. Slow braking use rear brakes. Fast braking use front & rear together
They certainly should. If they don't, check out www.sheldonbrown.com, www.parktool.com or www.bicycletutor.com. for info on how to set up and adjust brakes. Replacing pads and cleaning rims is usually a good start. If your rims are steel you'll always have poor braking when compared to aluminum rims.
It means there is a problem with your braking system and should be serviced as soon as possible. Your brakes could fail at any time.
Unusual question. The 2005 Toyota Corolla has disc brakes up from and brake shoes in the rear. The break pads, (in the front), usually last approximately 30,000 miles. However this is not set in concrete. Brake replacement varies according to use, driving conditions and individual driver habits. People that drive with their left foot on the brake pedal, (and some do), will go through brakes faster. If the vehicle is used to deliver newspapers to homes will go through brakes very fast. When you do change your front brakes, be sure and use genuine Toyota Brake Pads. Most after market pads squeel and are often made of inferior material. Secondly, be sure and have the rotors trued in the process. Rear brakes. The rear brakes will often last 60,000 miles or longer. The reason? The front brakes do 70 percent of the stopping so the rear brakes last longer. The rear brakes should be adjusted every 7500 to 10000 miles and should not be an expensive service. $30.00 to $50.00 and you will get a front and rear cleaning in the process. Hope this helped.

You should bring your car in to a shop or a place like auto zone etc. They will inform you on the condition of your brakes and when they need to be changed out.
I have asked this question of the dealer, twice now. The answer is that it should last for the life of the engine. If you had an older Toyota, like I did, with a timing belt, it had to be changed at an interval recommended by Toyota. No such interval exists for chains, according to my dealer.
This depends on what vehicle one is talking about. For motorcycles the front brake generally has by far the most available braking power. This also generally true for cars, too, but with a motorcycle one can apply the front and rear brakes separately.
Between 60K & 90K miles
