Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently replaced my front brake pads and adjusted my rear shoes, and now when

Check the fluid level in your master cylinder. It may be low. If it is, fill it and keep an eye on it. If it goes down again there's a leak in the system that needs to be addressed ASAP. HTH. -Jim

Also check to make sure the E brake pedal isn't slightly pushed down
