Jeep brakes?

Jeep brakes?

Answer:

brake systems are contained units, therefore if you had to add fluid. You obviously have a leak somewhere in your system. In order to raise the height of your brake pedal, this is accomplished by adjusting your rear brakes.
I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0. Had a simular problem and replaced them at one of those drive in 30 min brake shops.they felt funny and still made noise. A year later I just went to Sears Auto and got the Original Ceramic pads which cost more and have not had any problems for almost 3 years now. Might just be an adjustment, but for sure Original/spec parts are better than after market. Same thing with the serpintine belt for the engine. Tthe 17.00 one lasted 2 years.the 30.00 one is still going.
The brake peddle dropping an inch on start up is normal. The half a can is a little too much though. Better look for a brake leak, dos your brake light come on.
O2 sensors caused a problem in UK a little while back.The problem was caused by petrol contaminated with an additive that should have gone into diesel.Check with where you buy yyour fuel to see if any similar problems have occured
You might just need a tune up, new spark plugs, o2 sensor , air filter, etc
