Question about 1999 Chevrolet Lumina
This car does pretty well, but some times and not every time, when backing up, there is a grinding sound. At times it really sounds like
something is coming apart. However, there seems to be nothing wrong.
Have taken it to a mechanic and they can not find anything wrong.
Also, the anti - lock brake light has come on twice. There is
no mechanical problem showing up so far, and this has been going on for
well over a year. Oh also, someone said to use the emergency brake and
it will adjust the brakes. I have done that and it it does stop for a while,
sometimes. Don't know, very unusual. Have checked on line at other sites
for solution, and about at least 50% of people who own this type car have
mentioned brake problems.
So, If anyone has a solution, I would appreciate your time.
Also, would you e-mail your answer to email@example.com?
Your brake shoes may be adjusted out too far, or a spring on your rear brakes may be disconnect and rubbing against the brake drum, or you may have bad break cylinders...personally I would go with bad wheel bearings which is also damaging your axel.
