Hi, first if this is a hydrallic system, i would check you have sufficiant brake fluid in the system, fluid can leak out through the piston seals, secondly your brake mastercylinder can run short of fluid if the level was previously low and now the brake pads have worn so low causing the fluid level to drop, if this is the case top up the resovoire press on the pedal a few times and check if the brake movement has improved, if this is ok then no bleeding of the brake system would be ness, otherwise you may have to bleed the system from the resovoire to the caliper

Brake Problem


yes but up to a point
the brake pedal should move about 1" to take up the pedal free play and then be applied smoothly as you press further
the harder you press the more solid stopping action you will get
that way you can feel the brakes working so that you can adjust the braking action for stopping
there should be no hissing noise that occurs when the brakes are being applied
you say hydro booster which is hydraulic booster but a hissing noise will come from an air leak in a vacuum brake booster which indicates that it needs repalcing

Are rear brakes in 2000 mazda protege self adjusting?


If the rears are not adjusted right, it could be a problem. And they should be self-adjusting, although often the adjusters get frozen from rust, corrosion, dirt. To adjust them, you drive in reverse and hit the brakes. Every time you do this the adjuster should click-it has made one turn on the adjuster's star wheel. Do it a few times: reverse, press brakes; reverse, press brakes. If brakes were too loose, and adjusters were working, the brake pedal may brake better now-pedal may be higher when brakes are pressed. If not sure, peel off the rubber plug on back bottom of brake backing plate. You should see the adjuster star wheel. Use a screwdriver and see if you can turn the star wheel either way. If still not sure, take the brake drum off, pull the shoes off, and take off the adjuster for cleaning. They are very simple devices, only a few parts to them. If they need cleaning to free up, do so. Then use some high temperature grease, very sparingly, on the adjuster's threads. Put them back on, shoes, and drums, then do the reverse and brake again to get them adjusted. Should work great now. When you pull the drum off, you can check if you need new brake shoes- not likely, but check.
Good luck.

My 1994 chevy k1500 is having brake probs. Pedal goes half way to the floor before beginning to engage, and then takes lots of pressure to actually stop. Could this be the brake booster or is it more...


could be booster, could be air in system, could be master cylinder. Check reservoir. If it is out, you have leaks and air in lines. If no, listen for air leaks under dash as you push pedal. If air leak, replace booster.
If no air leak, check for vacuum at hose going into booster. If no vacuum, check hose connection to intake manifold.
If no leaks and booster is good, suspect master cylinder.

Let me know if you have questions.

Cruise control fails to engage on '03 ford sport trac


Th is is how I fixed mine! Down on the brake pedal there is a small plastic box about 1 1\2 * 1 1\2 in size. It's called the brake stop light, I think. This part disengages the cruise when the brake is pressed. Not sure on it's other uses! Remove the clip from the part where it attatches the the pedal. For more working room you can remove the plastic keeper. The box has three keepers on it. Pry them out gently to remove the top. Two of the copper pieces inside will have contacts on them about the size of a match stick head. Take them out and clean them with an eraser. This solved my problem, I hope it solves yours. Let Me KNOW!
