      1.If the rotors were badly damaged by a worn pad ( down to the metal ), and there is not much thickness left due to the turned, then the rotors need to be replaced.

      2. " Basically ", when the brake pads are replace, the rotors are need to be turned for a better braking.

    Why do my brakes feel soft after I replaced rotors and pads
    When the rotors and pads were replaced there was no loss of fluids nor is there any leaking. With the softness when the pedal is depressed and gets harder on the second depression you would assume there is air in the line. Can't think of how this would happen or if ...

      don't think about it, simply bleed each caliper.

    I have a 1993 new yorker 5th avenue 3.3 and just bought a 1988 new yorker landau 3.0 L.
    Will the parts such as the brake pads, rotors, struts, rear springs, etc. all interchange between the two cars? Also, I don't think it will, but will the transmissions interchange?

      You may have forced fluid into the power booster unit. Though the master cylinder is typically sealed - the extra hydraulic pressure may have forced some fluid back into the brake booster diaphragm unit.
      Try this step first - disconnect and plug the vacuum line (hose) to the power brake booster. Then, test the brake pedal for 'feel'. Is there a change? Post a reply as 'add answer' with your results.

      tks for the response, i took the car down to the autolab to have them bleed the brakes.
      30 dollars. decided that i would learn more by letting them bleed the brakes.. as they let me
      hang around the car while they work.....
      a small amount of air present.... the brakes work fine now.. i could have bled the brakes myself,
      still, i felt that having them do it i would know what if anything needed to be done next.
      thank you again for your response.

      I have a similar problem. Can u tell me what kind of pedal feel would indicate a problem with the power booster and what kind wouldn't. After disconnecting and reconnecting the vacuum line.

      Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to bleed the brake system - along with many videos for all types of repair and diagnosis work.

      You have to replace the rotted section of brake line with double flares and unions and bleed the brakes. Sometimes the area you have to get access to is a real nightmare though. Some are not.

      check the master boostercan ,your fluid can also be lost though the vacum side and the engine will burn it ,pull the line off the can and stick a pencil down the hole and pull it out and see if it has fluid on it. if it does the booster is shot if it dry your leak is down the line

    If I need to replace pads do I still need to replace disc also
    Need new breaks
     
    • Jimm

      It depends how much wear (how thick) the disc rotor is - there is a minimum thickness for the rotor. The disc brakes and rotors are not difficult or expensive to replace - check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the front disc brake pads (axle set) for around $10.00 for your vehicle. The brake rotors are around $9.50 each - for your vehicle.

      Most likely related to contaminated brake fluid - proably need to flush and clean the brake system, and replace the fluid with new. It's also possible the flexible brake hoses at the front calipers have deteriorated - these can be inspected as the material will tend to rot over time.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.

    I purchased new slotted and grooved rotors for the car because the stock rotors warp every 10,000 miles so what I want t
    ask is the old rotors are over an inch thick double wall and the new rotors are 1/2 inch thick do I need to get different calipers or will they squeeze tight enough to popely stop the car

      Sounds like you have the wrong rotors. Check your part numbers
