    We just put new tires on the rear and rotated the older back tires to the front. Last week, as I approached the start of an overpass, the edge of the concrete was raised and the left front tire hit hard. On the way home, a very loud growling noise ( like a car ...

    What causes ABS, VSC TRAC & brake warning lights to engage simultaneously?
    These warning lights come on intermittently in various orders but when all come on, braking is suspect and vehicle becomes very difficult to control. The codes in OBDII right now are C1223, C1247, & C1310. I've seen several complaints online about this combination ...

      The estimate cost is just that - an estimate. Any detailed discussion about a more exact repair cost would need to be performed at the local repair shop(s) in person with the vehicle in question. Short answer - it depends on the repair shop.

    I have low brake pedal what is the potential problem? (see note below)
    I have new brake pads and rotors all the way around and have checked the lines for air.

      Your brake master cylinder may be bad. If the seals are bad, then brake fluid will bypass the seals and poor braking action will occur.

      Double check for air in the lines. You can't effectively "check" to see if there is air in the lines. You must bleed them until just straight clean fluid comes out. It's suitable to have a helper when doing this.
      1. Ensure brake fluid reservoir is topped off with fluid before and during the entire process.
      2. Have your helper sit in the driver seat , listening to you.
      3. Grab a suitable wrench, clear tubing that fits snug over the bleed screw, and a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
      4. Starting from the rear right (farthest) wheel, position yourself under the car. Place the clear tube over the bleed screw.
      5. Have your helper lightly depress the brake pedal. They must hold the brake pedal down until you command them to release.
      6. Open the bleeder screw, allow some fluid to drain for a second or two.
      7. Close the bleeder screw. Tell your helper to release the brake pedal.
      8. With the screw still tight, have them depress the brake pedal again. Then open the bleeder screw and allow more fluid to drain.
      9. Continue this process until the fluid comes out in a clean stream with no air.

      Note: do NOT allow the brake pedal to be release with the bleeder screw open...otherwise air will be sucked in. Ensure the brake fluid reservoir cap is on tight before depressing the brake pedal. Otherwise you'll end up with a geyser of fluid shooting out of the reservoir with every brake pedal depression.

    Grinding noise, front left wheel, 2010 Toyota Corolla
    The grinding noise sounds exactly like a brake pad worn off and metal is grinding against metal. I have had both front wheels off twice and all pads are good. The noise occurs when breaking, but not every time. If it were worn brake pads the noise would happen ...
