5kCSTQ with FREAKY Brake Prob
Hi All! My 5kCSTQ since the replacement of the wheel bearings in the
front, has had the FREAKIEST brake prob. After having driven a short
distance (less than 20 minutes of city), and then getting back in the car
from the store, the brakes will not work. Essentially I can go to Best
Buy, get something and then after leaving the parking lot on my second or
third brake application the pedal is LOCKED. It's like having a brick
under pedal. It takes all the force I can muster, and then when they
finally do give the car comes to a screeching stop and I look like an
idiot. (more than normal anyway) What is wrong with the beast? Could it
be crap in the fluid? Previous to the bearings I had a new master
cylinder put on, but they probably did not give me new fluid. This is
really scarry when it happens because I cannot stop the car, and I stand
the chance of bumping someone. Help!!
