1995 Mercury Sable Front Wheel Drive 100000 miles
I have 2 problems.
One, since I bought my vehicle (used) there has been trouble with my front passenger brake. It clunks when I accelerate after sitting at a stop light or sign, no matter how long my foot was pressed down on the brake pedal. Not only can I hear it but I can feel it in my pedal on my foot through my shoe. I have, since buying the car, had a bit of work done, including 1 hub being replaced, front and back suspension and have had my rotors resurfaced and my pads are fine (can you say, I got ripped off?)
Anyway, I thought maybe after all of these repairs the clunking would be sure to go away and it hasn't. The worst part is some of the time the brake sticks and it grinds as it tries to let go when I'm trying to drive away from said light or sign and it smells like it's burning. Anyone have this trouble and what is the problem?
Two, in the last week my brake light on my dash has stayed on after I start my car. Now I know every dash light comes on when the vehicle is initially started but they all go off. My brake light stays on until I pull the brake release, it then makes a popping noise like air and goes off after 2 pulls. I will tell ya that recently when I had work done on my car after I left the shop my ABS light has been on constantly. They said it should go off, it hasn't. They checked it and said it is a censor and that my ABS nor my brakes are in jeopardy over the light being on but maybe it is?
The noise I described above (clunking) was occurring before the ABS light mishap. I'd appreciate any help I can get.
have the same problem?
