  1. Problem Reports
    Hi Need some advice. 2007 2.4l 275K miles I've owned the car since 2010, 33K miles. I've had great luck with this car, no major issues ever, except for the brakes randomly going out on me about 2 years ago-which was fixed with a recall. Not sure if any of this is related. I screwed up...

    Just wondering if anyone has disabled their ABS. Apparently I'm having a stuck valve so I took it off and now the brakes are actually working great again LOL. Will have to drive like this temporarily. Curious if anyone has actually drive without it. Luckily I don't have ice or snow where I'm from.

    Guys, quick question... Will bleeding all four brakes get rid of the air in the master cylinder? Or is there a specific method of removing air in the master cylinder?

    I'm getting a code C1505, saying that the rear left valve is not to factory spec? When I press on brakes it feels spongy, and it doesn't happen all the time. Has anyone had this problem? Will replacing ABS module help or is this something entirely different?

    I have newer EBC rotors and OEM pads (<3k miles) and fairly new brake fluid (ATE 200) and considering swapping front pads for track day. I've heard that this can cause major rotor warping, and also that it's perfectly fine as long as both get proper bedding (street to track, track to street). My...

    Hey guys, I need some advice on what could be causing this. 2006 GT: I put on new shocks and struts last year (OEM, and yeah, that cost a lot more than aftermarket but I liked the original ride). I put new brake rotors and pads, and replaced failing front right caliper. I replaced the 17"...

    TL;DR - has anyone 'big-braked' the rear brakes on their cars by using the brake hardware from the front? Would this be a cheap way to upgrade your rear brakes if you used your old front hardware on the rears while replacing the fronts with a big brake kit? Context follows. So I've been...

    Hello, I braked hard in my car and now I have a low rubbery creaking skipping sound.. Taking it to Midas tomorrow, but so far my friends have looked at it three times and can't figure it out. Adjusting my brake hardware on the front passenger wheel made it quiet for a couple days but it came...

    Heya, New Member to the Forum, online people call me Noct. I'm fairly new to the car enthusiast scene as a whole. I actually bought my '06 Eclipse (Ellie) before I really got hooked on having a cool car and being interested in modding too much, but a friend took me to a car meet and we did some...

    I told her 6 months ago she needed needed brakes on her truck but she kept using her money for stupid ass shit and not buying them. Well this is what happend. She sheered a pad and tried welding the caliper piston to her rotor. She barley made it to school. Then i tell her that its gonna cost...

    Car fax doesn't t show that the timing belt was ever changed . My 07 gs spyder was a one owner. Is there a way person could find the owner and ask him. Some vin lookup. Carfax has all the times they went to the dealer to do checks or inspections. In Jan. They replaced front rotors , new brakes...

    Just figured I'd put this out there in case anyone experiences soft brake pedal. The Guide pins are often over looked. Case in point, twice by me, twice by the dealership. Finally smacked myself in the head and took the rear pins out to find out they were dry as a bone. (changed all 4 rotors and...
