Hello, our 16 year old found a 1980 Phoenix that had less than 80k miles on it for less than a grand so she bought it. After a water pump, pads, calipers and rotors we still cant get the drivers side caliper to retract.
The passenger side is fine. When the car is on stands and in drive the rotors are turning true, no wobbling, which is hopefully telling me the hub is running straight.
When the brakes are applied the drivers side caliper, which is brand-new, wont retract back unless I open the bleeder valve. When I open the bleeder valve the caliper retracts and the wheel hub starts spinning normally.
Can anyone please give me some insight on what the problem may be? The caliper is getting plenty of fluid on the bleed but just isn't retracting.
Hey fella's! New to the page. but i've been thinking of doing an Auto to Manual swap in my 69 Laurentian. i know these cars came with either a 3-speed or 4-speed, could anyone help to identify these transmissions? and possibly track down a clutch pedal/linkage assembly.
By Grand am man
I have a 2000 pontiac grand am 3.4 liter i recently changed my front breaks and i understand new pads smell a little but i drove it on the freeway and at one point i had to push break pedal all ths down to stop what did i do wrong? Also it kind of overheats temp goes 3 notches above normal temp but never fully overheats once i start moving it cools down just want to fix small issue before it gets worse any advice would be great. One more where are the other spark plugs only 3 are visible in front and how do i get to them?
