    Previously your primary circuit or plunger may be the issue, this time power piston is stuck or not working or emulsification ports are not playing their role.

    @Xulfiqar @smijaz @metalhead @cracked @speedster_101 @margallar @daniyalahmad
    Guys i experienced something scary today.
    I was cruising at 60kmph when a traffic stop was near. I applied the brakes from a distance as i don't brake hard. The odd part is that the brake pedal seemed to move further in as i pressed it. So i pressed it down at a moment to realize that it was going all the way down to brake. It felt like the brakes failed and i was about to panic when i lifted my foot all the way up and pressed again; the brakes felt much tighter now and the pedal didn't go all the way down. All this happened in a few seconds.

    Afterwards i parked the car and shut it off, pressed the brakes a few times and started it with the brakes applied. I did this to check the booster and it worked fine i.e pedal went slightly down. This happened only once in the 10km i drove.

    Where is the bleed screw on the disc and drum brake? What will be the procedure of bleeding i.e do i press the pedal, loosen the screw to let air out then tighten it once all air is out and finally release the brake pedal?

    I'd appreciate a quick reply as my safety is at great risk.

    @DUDE007
    this has happened with me too.on long route though,when i was driving for quite some time without brakes,at toll plaza,i tried to stop car at jump and cat eyes and brakes wouldnt respond as good.i stopped it with engine braking.another time,when i traveled through a pond of water that formed after heavy rain,tires were about half way in water,the brakes didnt work. what i think is it was due to heating of brake pads or something in first case and due to water on 2nd one on brake hubs.it has only happened with me once.on my return,i got all brake oil changed,and never had to face such problem again alhumdulillah.

    i think this is because of not changing brake fluid, it absorbs moisture which turns into steam when the brakes get hot

    @fady04

    1st one is the back-up light switch. It turns on the white light at the back when you put the gear in reverse.

    2nd one is the signal wire to the ignition coil so that it can fire the plug. If there are two wires coming out, the other may be for cng kit to tell that the engine is running.

    3rd is the coolant temperature gauge. It senses the temperature here and shows the reading in the cluster. Its a single wire component.

    4th is the radiator fan switch. it turns on the radiator fan when the operating temperature of the engine is reached. Yours is not connected which means your radiator fan is direct. Please make it functional and have mercy on your car. If you could connect wires to it well and good other wise replace it with a working one. To check its operation, consult the service manual.

    The temperature sensor is below the thermostat valve so that it can sense the temperature of the coolant in the engine block whether the valve is open or not. The fan switch is above the valve so that when the valve opens, the switch toggles due to hot coolant and thus turns on the fan.

    @cracked Thanks for the detailed reply. I found a post here that recommends ZIC brake fluid so where can i buy this:

    Hi Tech Lubricants Limited

    Will 1 bottle be enough for replacing the brake fluid?

    Which tires are the khyber owners here using?
    I did some search and people recommend Dunlop, Bridgestone, Yokohama etc. Are these japanese and which brand should i go for in size 165/70/12? They should be quiet, grippy and give good economy.

    ^ Currently running Dunlop Digi tyre ECO 165/70/12. They were good in the beginning. Soft, grippy but now they have done almost 50k so now they have become quite noisy. Dunlop and Yokohama is good.
    The PS recommended size was 145/80/12 though.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.
