Hello. You could have one issue or multiple issues that together are causing this fault. Brakes are of course very critical and in the event that the problem is due to failed, or failing, seals in the master cylinder (underhood), for your safety of course seek an in person diagnosis as soon as possible. The reason for that is that failure mode (master cylinder), if it becomes fulminant, could lead to substantial loss of braking ability. Check your brake fluid level first.

If it is really low, you also have to consider the possibility of a leak. If low, add fluid but keep in mind air has possibly been introduced, due to low fluid (if you have a really low fluid level) and so a Mechanic will still have to look at the car and bleed the brakes, at minimum. If you have rear drum brakes, an additional factor to look at is whether the adjusters are working or not. If they are not working and the shoes are too far from the drums this will also cause excessive pedal travel. My best advice is have somebody evaluate the braking system for you and with that diagnosis you will get an estimate of the cost to resolve this. YourMechanic is mobile and thus can address your brake system issue at your convenience and get you fixed up. Best wishes to you.

Q: Rear passenger's window not going up

It sounds like your power window motor is shot. The grinding sound that you are hearing are probably stripped gears in the motor. I would recommend having a certified technician come out and replace the power window motor.

Hi. I will help you with this issue you are having with your 2001 Durango. Unless you bled the master cylinder, it is possible there is still air in the system. If you car is equipped with ABS, air could...

Hello. The odor of oil is merely coincidental to the symptoms you report. Any vehicle of that vintage is going to have multiple oil leaks unless the engine has been re-sealed or re-built. Just be sure the leak is not...
