SOURCE: Front brake lever is very hard/solid when i

I am thinking that you need to change the fluid and replace the brake pads. Over time brake fluid attracts water and it states in the manual that brake fluid should be changed. I change fluid in mine every other year.

How come my 1996 yamaha 1300 is hard to push now. more then before .


Have you made any adjustments to your chain lately ? is the tire pressure up to the right amount ? are any of your disk brake rotors getting hot even though you are not using them ? or drum brakes if your bike has them ? if the bike is on the centre stand or raised up of the ground can you spin the rear wheel and will move freely this also applies to the front wheel if it is also lifted off the ground can it spin freely ?doing this will answer your question

My steering wheel shakes when braking over 40 mph


most likely a warped rotor, check front end components (tie rod ends, ball joints). if a caliper is sticking the rotor will get very hot, get black, or discolor, and bend (warp). drive around for10 min. and jab the brakes hard several times during the drive. stop and feel the temp (don't touch) of each wheel with your hand. they should be equally warm. hot or smoking is not a good caliper.

Why are the Rotors getting so hot on the front and rear so hot I can not touch them.


The rotors are doing their job by getting hot
the purpose of the brakes is to change the kinetic energy of the spinning wheels to heat energy by the friction between the pads and the rotors (discs) This conversion of energy from kinetic to heat is what slows down the vehicle and stops it . The pads have no way of staying off the discs except by the air flow that is dragged under the pad by the friction with the disc So to sum up discs get hot by converting energy and the more energy you have the hotter they get
(watch high speed race cars at night and you will see the discs are white hot or bright red )
Back discs are slightly different as they don't come on as hard as the front discs and they also are affected by hand brakes out of adjustment
IF you feel that the discs are getting too hot for the distance covered there may be a problem in that the callipers are binding on the mounting bolts (pins) and are not centralizing and hence one pad will be in contact all the time This pad will show more wear then the other pad on the same disc.

What could be the problem when I aply brakes pedal gets real hard where car wont stop when braking coming to a stop brk. light and abs lights on


Hey Joes, 1 problem at a time ,if brake light is coming on that is in the proportion valve ,did you have to push reset button to make light go out,? if the ABS lite is coming on what you can do to check and see if that is the problem is unplug it and try brakes ,it will deactivate ABS and give you normal braking and ABS light will be on ,see if symptyms change , also did you reset ABS sensors to the tone wheel when you replaced rotors ? I don't know what you have and I have seen some cars need a importaint reset procedure for abs to work properly. good luck I hope I gave you some good things to look at that help you.

1992 Taurus LX. I drive 1-2 miles and left front wheel gets extremely hot. I have replaced front calipers, discs, rotors, and front brake lines plus bled system repeatedly. Only things left are Master...


I would say neither. You need to raise that wheel and see if the caliper is retracting enough to let the wheel spin free. If it is locked up, I could be a collapsed brake hose on that wheel. The rubber hoses can do that.
Also check if it is a wheel bearing problem. Is the center of the wheel hot? A bad bearing can heat up.

I have a 2005 chevy cobalt that is making a humming noise after 20 mph. I can also feel a vibration in the gas petal. "noise" increases with speed. Higher milage and just had struts replaced about 150


squeakey69 is right it sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem cobalts are notorious for wheel bearings going bad i would go ahead and change both front bearings because if one is going bad the other usually isnt far behind hope this helps.

WHEN COMING TO A STOP I GET A PULSING ON THE FRONT BRAKE WITH A NOISE AND A SOFTENING OF THE BRAKE. IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AT HIGH SPEED BRAKING.(SENSOR?) THIS IS A 2000 JIMMY 4+4 187,000 kms BOTH FRONT...


The pulsing is usually caused by a warped rotor. Rotors warp from quick stops and rapid braking techniques. It could also possibly be a weakening Master cylinder or a leaky diaphragm in the brake boost, but this last would be accompanied by a hissing sound when you hit the brakes. To check the rotors, block the rear wheels and raise the front until the wheels are off the ground. Spin the wheels individually by hand slowly - they should roll smoothly. If they do , have a helper apply very light pressure to the brake pedal with the engine running and again spin the wheel. With the wheel spinning, have the helper apply increasingly more pressure to the brake pedal until it stops the wheel from turning. Now have them back off the pedal slightly so you can spin the wheel again and spin, looking for uneven rolling. Check both front wheels to show which rotor is warped. If either is warped, you'll need to have the rotors resurfaced ( turned) and replace the pads both sides.
If they turn smoothly through all of the tests, apply solid pressure to the brake pedal until you can't push it any farther and hold that pressure. Watch the pedal for sinking. If it sinks, then you either have air in the system or a bad Master cylinder. Bleed the brakes first before you replace the master and do the pressure test again. If you don't find anything at this point, start the engine and do the brake pressure test again. If the pedal sinks, then you may have a vacuum leak in the booster and will need to do a vacuum test on the booster to make sure, since that job is usually hard to do and may be costly, depending on the style of booster you have.
Hope this helps!!

Heat coming from1997 geo tracker & front tires


sounds like you have a brake claiper piston not return causing the brake pads to drag, jack up both wheels and spin to see if you can feel or hear drag, give the wheel a hard spin and see if it stops right away or seems to spin freely, could be the drag of the pads on the rotor, or wheel bearings need repack or even as much as brake residual fluid pressure on calipers cuased by improper brake mc pushrod adjustment, if you have had any recent brake work like a MC replacement it could be that it was not properly adjusted as far as pedal free play... check those.. please let me know if this helps, rate my help...thanks

Hot brakes


my front disk brake was hot. When i parked my bike in front of my house I heard that dissipating heat ticking that would normally be associated with a hot engine only it was my front disk. This was just from everyday ride through town. I never noticed if car rotors got hot so I have to ask if its normal for a bike rotor to heat up after some use? It was too hot to feel with your hand but not glowing red or smoking. Nor did it give the aroma of toasted brakes.It will generate heat normally. Lift the front end and spin the wheel to see if your pads are dragging.,,,
