2001 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
3+ years ago the wrong size snow chains were put on my CRV's tires & eventually snapped off at some point during the weekend. Since that time the ABS light has been on 80% of the time. I've had the ABS sensors replaced, the brakes checked numerous times. For the last 3 years since the tire snow chain incident, my brakes have increasingly done a random strange stuttering followed by what sounds like a spring making a 'boing' sound. The brake pedal gets a bit mushy & stutters/skips, springs back at you & for a few seconds feels like it's not braking. This happens on hills, on flat roads, when the car is cold & when the car is hot. The light is sometimes off but eventually comes back on for no apparent reason.
After seeing 4 different mechanics regarding the problem (including a dealership) & spending a lot of money I am not sure if this problem can ever be fixed.
Any help or advice?
