    Default Brake Problem IN civic

    MY 97 civic is has some problem with the brakes.

    previously all of the wheels of the car got locked
    i got that problem sorted out by changing the brake fliud and master cylinder cleaning.

    all of the brakes were checked but there was no problem with discs and drums.

    the problem was in the master cylinder.
    (the mechanic told me that there was mobil oil in the brake fluid) but no mobil oil added by me .

    but again aftwer 6 months.

    i can feel that the car is braking and the brake pedal also gets hard.
    the wheels do not move freely engine has to work hard to keep the car in motion.

    here is prevois thread created by me 6 months ago whn the problem originated.

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!37823~ForumID!10~pw.html

    what can be the problem.any problem with the springs

    should i change the master cylinder.

    what will be its price.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....

    yes its fine.

    all of the wheels used to get locked.
    so got a full brake check up.

    fisrtly the mechanic changed the fliud without opening the cylinder.the problem prevailed after the test run.


    the problem was in the cylinder.

    after cleaning the cylinder and changin the fliud the problem was gone.

    can mobil oil get mixed up with braking fliud.


    the car was running fine ,no problem with the brakes no locking up.

    but this problem came again after 6 months.

    I am spooked by the mechanic knowing exactly what brand of oil was there in the master cylinder or the brake system. This guy must be a genious, to be able to know what brand of oil has been mixed with regualr DOT 3 or 4 brake oil. I think there is more then has been told by the mechanic. Mobil Oil in Brake system??????

    brother its 100 % cylibder prob.
    i faced same problem on my corolla,the inner cylinder of master cylinder had some so=pots on it,i changed the cylinder n now they r perfect.its better to change whole cylinder rather than the kit
    i bought second hand cylinder in 800 rs...(new was 2400)........but its corolla.
    civic will be lill expensive ...may be 1500 for a used one
    .make sure that the cylinder is smooth from in side and not a single spot on it,beaware some people just bore the cylinder and sell it again

    the problem solved


    the real problem was the rubber washers they were swollen due to wrong fluid that were creating the pressure build up.
    the mechanic insisted that they should be replaced.

    got a whole set for 130 rs for my civic. and 300 for the mechanic.
