Customer Question

My name is ***** *****. I just replaced a rotor, the hardware, and brake pads for my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. How do I bleed the brake line? Also, my power steering went out and there is a major leak. How do I replace that? Do you have any idea how much that would cost to bring to Firestone? Or, can I replace it myself?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The brake fluid is low and it is old. The brake pedal goes to the floor.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Pontiac Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Is there a way to make my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4 liter faster?

When I am in drive and at a stop light the dashboard shakes intermittently, I have to put my vehicle in neutral. What is causing this problem?

Hi there. I am Chris and am one of the Pontiac techs here. I would like to offer some advise for you. 1st - we have a bunch of questions here - let me start w/ the brakes.
Expert:  Technician Chris replied 1 year ago.
If you just replaced pads and rotors, and now the brake pedal goes to the floor, then you either have a leak or (more likely) you have air in the brake lines. If you don't see any fluid on the calipers, then you can rest assured there is no leak. To bleed the brake fluid, start at the RR caliper (furthest from the master cylinder). You will need a buddy to assist. Have your buddy pump the pedal a few times to build up as much pressure as possible. Then open the bleeder screw on the caliper and have your buddy press and hold the pedal all the way down. Close the bleeder screw and have him pump the pedal again. Do this until he feels a noticeable change in the firmness of the pedal. Then repeat the process at each caliper in this sequence: RR, LR, RF, LF NOTE: Be sure to top off the master cylinder as often as possible while you are bleeding the system. If it sucks in any air, you will have to start the whole process over again.
