Asked by Sep 06, 2014 at 11:50 PM about the 2004 Toyota Camry SE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2004 Camry Se, a while back the rear of my
car started creaking when letting of the
brake and beginning to accelerate. Or when
stopping. Also (about a month ago) I hit the
brakes to come to a stop and I couldn't stop
until my foot was all the way to the floor
(there was no pressure) I parked and it went  
away after a while. I assumed they were
wet. But today after a month of random
creaking the brakes did it again and I had to
push the pedal to the floor and have the
brakes lock up and the car skidding to
come to a stop. I parked the car. And it's
gone again. What could be the problem?

Have you checked the brake fluid?


Forgot to add that in, yes plenty of brake fluid, it's definitely not the issue. It's a random thing.


May need to check the back brake,s sound,s like you may have bad pad,s or your emergency brake,shoe,s in side rear rotor hub ,may be bad.


Would that also explain the loss of pressure?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Yes,pad,s wore out,you have loose space,leading to what i call spunge pedal.


Of course,if they pad,s are good,you may can just bleed them.
