#87 of 95 '07 Suburban brake fluid replace?
Jun 24, 2010 (10:32 am)
Just got the Burb back from dealer for what turned out to be a dying fuel pump (interesting, as it manifested itself first as a "Stabiltrack Off" and "Traction Control Off" warning light, then increasing trouble starting--dealer says that "Check Engine" light turned off the stability/traction control module--weird).
At any rate, at 70K miles, dealer says rear brake pads need replacement. Wanted $400. Then said "brake fluid looks really dark, needs replacement" for another $175. The pads don't surprise me (though the price does). However, is the "dark brake fluid" the typical dealer scam? There's no mention of fluid replacement requirement in manual. Or is this a real problem? I took it home anyway as I figure I can get this done cheaper at an independent shop.
#88 of 95 Rear caliper slide pins
Jun 24, 2010 (11:06 am)
I just changed the rear brakes on my Burb. I did not know the brake pad bracket just slides off the pins. I first tried to remove the pins and after awhile realized nothing was happening they were just spinning. I tried to tighten the pins up but they just keep turning and do not get tight. Is this normal or did I screw something up?

I just changed front and rear pads on my suburban. My local auto part store had good,better and best. I purchased the best for 140.00 for all four wheels. Changed all four and rotated the tires in about two hours.

Sadly, I am dangerous with a wrench in my hand and will have to pay a professional to do that!
PS: did you change brake fluid? When is it necessary?

No I did not change the brake fluid but I really should. I think its one of those things that gets over looked. Im leaving for Vt. in a couple hours but when I get back I think I will flush mine. We just flushed out my sons liberty with 40k on it and the brake fluid looked like Jack Daniels. I was looking at those speed bleeders to bleed and flush.
#92 of 95 02 tahoe front pads dragging
Jul 22, 2010 (5:05 pm)
Just replaced rotors calipers and pads. bled the system and pedal feels good when i went to drive it there was a loud noise like the pads were dragging. Not enough to notice any difference in acceleration but enough to make new rotors very hot in two miles and noise is very loud. Any ideas?

If you paid someone to do it, take it back.
If you did it yourself, sounds like you didn't get something back together correctly....or you have used the wrong parts.
#94 of 95 ABS and Parking Brake LIght On
Jul 24, 2010 (6:09 am)
01 Suburban 5.3 73K on it. Took it to the dealer and put it on the computer. They told me i need a new ABS module. I remember reading on here that there is a guy our there who rebulilds them for a resonable price. Dealer wanted $1700 (not a typo). If i can find the right one I can replace it. Also, does anyone where the ABS module is located? i just haven't looked yet.
