I would like to get some professional opinions on my Tahoe. It’s a 2000 Chevy Tahoe. In October of 2012, I had all of the brake lines replaced. I took my car into Firestone to have an inspection done and the brake line failed as I pulled in. I had all of the brake lines replaced and now that leads me to what happen today. I drove this evening and when I pulled into my garage and stepped on the brake, the pad went all the way to the floor and there was a loud hissing sound from the back of the car. I tried several times and the brakes continued to do the same thing. There is also a puddle of clear liquid pooled up behind the driver’s rear tire.
The questions I have are 1) how long should new brake lines last? 2) Does this sound like the brake lines?
I’m assuming it’s unsafe to drive. That is a given. I just feel that this is something that shouldn’t have happened within a year of replacing the lines.
I would appreciate anyone’s opinions on this. Not a great way to start 2014.
