Default Can I put oil on the front brakes of my "98 Honda Civic to reduce noise?

My front brakes are gone and it makes the screeching noise as the car moves and I don't have a job right now and I know it will cause damage, but I want to put oil so it won't make noise, will that be bad?

Front brake pads cost maybe $30.. And its like an hour job easy. The front are brake discs, you can change them with basic hand tools no problem. With you driving it, if they are grinding then you are tearing up the rotors "the round shiny part behind the rim" If you chew those up, your looking at up to $80 a pair, and more work taking stuff apart. Dont put anything on your brakes, you need to get them changed or dont drive the car, because before you know is you will be eating someones rear bumper and then your really screwed and its going to cost you "mo money"........ E-mail me if you want me to walk you threw how to do it because its as easy as changing your oil.

NO to the oil. You need new pads. Oil can cause a fire. Take the bus until you get your car fixed.
