1998 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
For years I have noticed my foot pedal to be harder than normal. DIdn't think much of it since the vehicle came to a stop with no problems. However, I have noticed that I am going through front brake pads very fast. Decided to open the rear drums and replace the shoes. Realized that the foot pedal did not stop the rear wheels. The brake cylinders did not even move. I tried bleeding the brakes and no fluid came out on both sides. I checked the bleeder screws and they were not plugged. Any suggestions?
I was told it could be the master cylinder or the solenoids? How can I be certain? And is there another posiibility for this cause?
