      02 e450 parking brake return spring don't know how it attatches

    • Guest - gerry

      I have a problem with my Hyundai Tucson 2007, the rear left brake rotor is wearing only half an inch from its center (inside and outside face). I have checked the left rear brake pads (in and out), I cleaned the caliper and the caliper mounting bracket, the pad retainers and the brake pads still rub only on the inner brake rotor. The brake rotor is rusted 1 inch from the outer edge on the inside and the outside. What could be the problem?

      Brakes groan in reverse when first driving on Nissan Frontier

      Most of the time brake noise in the morning is caused by dirty rear brake drums, but depending on the year of your Nissan it may have rear disc, not drums, so then the problem would just be a little rust buildup. Either way, have the brakes checked.

    Engine Misfire Code P0300 - P0308

    The powertrain control module (PCM) uses information from the ignition control (IC) module and the camshaft position (CMP) sensor in order to determine when an engine misfire is occurring. By monitoring the variations in the crankshaft rotation speed for each cylinder the PCM is able to detect individual misfire events.
