    '05 Isuzu Ascender: I was stopped on a steep hill waiting on traffic, facing uphill. I had eased off the brakes and rolled backwards a little bit. When I pressed on the brakes to stop again, there was a dull popping sound from under the hood in front of me, a noticable pulse in the brake pedal...

    Hello all! Last winter up in Michigan right after we had the polar vortex hit us dropping the temperatures down to -40 I started to have problem with me abs sensors.

    Searched a bunch but didn't see this specific issue in the forum. I'm having an intermittent issue where my brake pedal sinks about an inch or so when I've just about come to a complete stop, right when the transmission kicks down to first gear, my pedal sort of "creaks" down a couple inches and...

    So I have been noticing some rough brake performance at times, and an on again off again P0171 MIL on my 06 TB. It runs perfectly fine sometimes, but others it does. There's a small high pitched noise under the hood, not sure from where though. The brake booster isn't making any noise though as...

    I've been doing some research, and I believe I have the problem figured out but I would like some input to verify the conclusions I've come to. I've been hearing a vacuum leak for the past few weeks, I believe the brake booster is the problem, specifically not holding vacuum. I can hear a...

    Hello all I am having an issue with my TB It is an 07 LT with the I6 and 4WD, it has about 150k on it. The ABS or TCS on the car is overly sensitive and prevents the car from stopping on many occasions. Its very dangerous as the TB will roll really far with the ABS going crazy when any other...

    Bought about a month ago and the brake pedal was very spongey - I would depress it 75% until the brakes started to work. Pads and Rotors were at 40% life, so we turned rotors and bought new pads for the front because they were getting low. We changed the brake fluid (old was dark green/black)...

    So here is the deal, I brought my 03 trailblazer LS to a mechanic to have some work done. I had him replace the brake pads in the front and when I got it back the brakes were hanging up. I called him and told him my issues and he basicly told me to F off. The first thing I did to try and fix the...

    Hey guys, This is my latest video on How To Flush and Bleed Your Brakes. I used my pickup truck in this video but it applies to any car or truck. Brake fluid absorbs water so after about 3 years you should flush them. While I know of no one who flushes their fluid that often I figured after 14...

So my question is, which brake pads do I need to buy or look for? I have a 2003 Trailblazer, 2WD, 4DR, LT-EXT with a 4.2 L V6. Any help would be greatly...

    First I would like to acknowledge how great it is to have a resource like this available. That being said, I'm looking for some suggestions to a problem I am experiencing on my 2007 2WD Envoy ~78k miles. When braking it pulls to the left, moving the steering wheel. My initial thought was that...
