Brake Check
I go to back out of my spot, i stall out. . . opps .. then i go to turn my car back on .. i drive up to the stop sign and try to stop. and i have no brakes at all. . . . . i rollled right though the stop sign. . thank god no one was comming.

i go back to my house, and take there is fluide all behind my battery .. .

i take the battery out and my what not, and the fuse that is connected to my stereo , (when i stalled out).. somehow moved and it touched one of the metal brake lines comming from the fluide container. . . .

just my luck . .

so i just bought a new one, but damnit! smile. .

i really dont feel like fixing it but i have to. .blah

Bleeding your brake lines is tricky, take it to a professional. The next stop sign or red light could be your last.

if that ever happens again use your e-brake, and/or downshift.

ya i didn't expect my brakes to NOT be there. . and i was going like 5mph.. but still i was lucky. .


i replaced the metal line that got shocked. . ill take a pic of it later so you can see what i mean. ..


i bleeded my brakes. . . now my brake feels "different"

it feels soft.. but i drove down the street and got on it, and then slammed on my brakes and they worked fine .. and i did it a few times .. but still my brakes feel softer now ..

questions?. . should i bleed my brakes when i have the key in the ignotion and it turn one notch.. so like ABS and that stuff is on. . or should i do it when the car is OFF . .. . (i did it with the car off and i did all four wheels). . .

If the pedal is soft, you have air in your line. You must remember that the leak was high up in the line, it will take a lot to get the air bubble out. Take it to the shop, don't fool around.
