brakes went out in my 01 grand am
Brakes went out in my 01 GA...went to purge
them and the front driver side wouldnt spit out
anything...no air or oil...so i went out of
curiosity and tried the passenger side and rear
and behold there was air and oil coming out of
them...still nothing in the front...i was told it
was the master cylinder but idk...i bought the
caliper and am debating on what it could
be...and opinions or resolutions are so very
welcome...thanks in advance
I'm thinking a collapsed brake hose on that side, not a caliper, but I did have an ABS unit fail on a rig that turned off the rear brakes on a rig, but that is a rare failure.
My abs lights on...and due to the poor design i found that on the drivers side the abs wires were ripped
Also make sure the bleeder screw is not clogged. Remove screw completely from caliper and see if any brake fluid comes out if screw is clogged you can clean out with a thin peice of wire like a paper clip or something like that.
Check the brake lines and hoses too, make sure you don't have a leak somewhere. I need to replace my lines due to living in snowy conditions in winter.
