My Brakes are hard and my car wont accelerate..... Plz help....
All of a sudden, As im driving, my
brakes lock up on me and my car
stopped accelerating...... When you put
it in Drive or Reverse, it sits there stuck
on Stupid...... Lol.... I have replaced the
Brake Calipers, the Brake Booster and
the Master Cylinder........Also a few
wks ago, i had to replace the Brake
Light Switch....... I also had the Brakes
Bleeded...... I went to pick up my car
today and about 7 mins into driving it
started the same thing..... My
Mechanic came and bleeded the
brakes again so i could get the car
back to the shop..... I am a Woman.....
Plz help me........ Whats wrong with my
car...... 2005 Kia Spectra Ex
Also my C.E.L. was on...... It was never on when i dropped off my car to the shop....... And it has 130,000 miles on it........
Take it back to the mechanic and make him fix it.
I did...... He had to come bleed my brakes again so that i could make it back to his shop...... But if it isnt any of those problems, i dont know what else to fix........ I dont have the funds for a new car.......
And now its hard to shift the Clutch out of Park as well.......
I'm working on an 08 Spectra and it has the same problem. Did you ever get it figured out? Master cylinder, front calipers and rubber hoses have been replaced. Walmart changed the oil and now it had the same problem. A shop told my boss that these parts needed repaired. No improvement.
I switched out my brake switch and ever since have had the same problem. I drive 1-2 miles and the vacuum booster pulls on the break, eventually locking them. Had to pull the hose off the booster to release the pressure. Still not working
Update to bosses sons car. I ended up replacing the power brake booster (after the 1st 1 turned out to be bad) and all is good. More then 1,000 miles and it still works as it should.
