Hey Everyone. Thanks for the responses. Haven't check the forum this week as work was hectic as all get out. Yet, Im home on Friday night and my gf is asleep. LOL
Update: New horrid noise has disappeared. The only noise left is the same old one. To further explain it, it happens at all speeds, and is neither louder, nor softer than before. Brake performance is the same.
Ok, my responses to everyone:
Altima_Craze: Awesome tip. Should have thought of this as I have a few years off-road experience. Will def try it next time I get the car up for this issue.
Flir: The only burning smell is my oil leak. LOL. I assume you're thinking of the caliper being seized/brake pad dragging bad enough to heat the rotor and make stuff start to burn? This does not appear to be the case. Also not a rock stuck in there. Been there and done that and this is different. Will also check on brake pad install.
SuperBlackz: 1-3. Car surprising brakes well. Doesn't pull to either side, no fade, nice pedal feel. The noise has only happened a few times. The first after making a sweeping right hand turn onto the freeway. The other time it started after the car was parked. Drove about 2 miles, came home. Next time I went out, it was gone.
4. Will check the brake fluid although I'm pretty sure it's filled.
Atmidator: Previous owner also paid $800 on another visit to Midas to have the exhaust replaced.
Started leaking with in a year. I'm sure the brake pads were scooped out of the same pile of $H^T.
My Thoughts: A few things at work here. One is that the pads and rotors are Grade A Midas. That is pretty much an automatic, they should be replaced so you know that you did the job right with quality parts. The other is that, the calipers do not look like they were ever replaced. That's 191K miles of NYC sitting on top of them. So you have inferior pads, and rotors, and also calipers where the slides, and everything else are far from optimum condition. I think everything points to I should get some new brake pads, rotors, and calipers. I'm in no rush to do this as I feel I am putting to much money into as is. I don't feel like it is a safety issue, and if it becomes one, I will absolutely fix it. Yep, I totally just became the guy who gets his problem diagnosed, and is holding off fixing it. Never thought the day would came, but here it is. On a more serious not, thanks for all the help again. I really do appreciate it and am glad that others will be able to search and find this thread.
