Thread: Car problems...

  1. #1

    Default Car problems...

    My brakes are on their way out on my car, however when i stomp on them to really slow down in a hurry, after the peddle seems stiff, unresponcive and the car does not brake much at all, it only takes a few mins for them to return to normal though.

    Any ideas what else this could be other than worn brake pads as i'm sure thats not the only problem, i was thinking brake fluid leak but then why would it get better.... V odd.

    Buy a new car.

    Make sure it is something with good gas mileage.

    I'm gonna second that...

    The reason it works the first time and then returns thereafter is because pressure has built up in the system, but everytime you use that pressure, it's dissipated...Fluid is the likely culprit, or your pump is on it's last legs.

    If you want to stop you should just crash into a group of cyclists, elderly or kindergarten kids on a trip.
    <Teth> It's best not to talk to Gunther, though
    <Jarlaxle> why ? he's a legend
    <Teth> He's primarily a legend because he's very good at antagonizing the ops without going far enough to be pwnz0red

    <@erik> Gunther will, true to his nature, probably get himself banned again soon enough ;)
