brake problem

Asked by Sep 14, 2013 at 05:02 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 with 207,000 miles. As I started to put it in reverse to back out of a parking lot, a popping sound was heard and now the brake pedal has to be pressed nearly all the way to the floor to stop. There is also a greasy type of liquid around the back side of the tire. The fluid is not on the tire, but the casing or whatever it may be called, where the tire is "housed" when you put the tire on. It appears that something busted, I'm guessing the brake fluid hose, and splattered on this housing where the tire is. Can you identify this problem for me?

you probably blew your rear drum piston, don't drive it your lucky you stopped at all, sounds like you should have someone that knows what there doing. in an emergency you can always use your e brake it doesnt use brake fluid on your drums
