Customer Question

I was driving an I could feel the brakes like not disengaging all the way .it got worse and worse until now I'm stuck my ride won't even roll

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Are these the orignial brakes?

300.000 miles not original brakes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

95 dodge van

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just got out of hosp last night for heart failure I'm very limited in what I can do

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It seems it gradually stayed on the brakes until now it won't roll at all when running and in gear it almost burns rubber to even move

Dodge Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Mechanic replied 6 months ago

This is usually the result of a bad brake master cylinder. Check the fluid and make sure it's not over full. If it's to full the fluid can heat up and apply the brakes. Sometimes a misadjusted brake light switch can do this as well. Otherwise it's probably going to need a new master cylinder.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
