Disc brakes on back. sometimes they will stick until they get hot. sometimes will stick when they get wet. check to see about your anti brake locking system.

Rear drums. which way do the slack adjusters go so they work properly. 1998 sunfire.

the brake adjuster wheels are closest to the rear brake you adjust the adjuster wheel it should rotate in one direction only and the brakes should move outward towards the drum and is stopped when trying to turn the wheel in the opposite direction by the bar that is to stop it from rotating in the wrong direction.

When turning at slow speeds, my pontiac sunfire 1998 makes a thump or clunk from my left front wheel well, could this be steering problems or a strut thqt needs to be replaced?

If the car is front wheel drive then the problem would be in the CV joint. If not front wheel drive then it could be anything in that left wheel. Brakes, bearings, strut, bushings whatever else there is.

When appling brakes rear end of car makes noise and seems to pull rear end down

Your rear brakes need to be addressed, it could be proportionate valve at your master cylinder or your brake shoe are in to tight from a missed adjusted parking brake cable.
Good luck and hope it's a simple parking brake cable adjustment or brake shoe replacement. Note that a worn out brake shoe will cause this also and you may have to replace the brake drums if it's also past it's wear marks.
Thank you for using Fixya

Rear brakes locking up

one of the brake sensors are telling the computer there is a problem. you'll have to take it to a shop to have it dianosed. the brakes will keep working, but you just won't have anti lock.

My rear back brakes on my 1997 pontiac sunfire have been making a scraping noise for the past month. When I took the car in to have an allignment in a heated garage for over a hour on my way home they just...

When applied, brakes generate lots of heat... If noise was there after dirving for a while, likely the noise is not from ice. If noise is gone, wait and see if it returns, If it does, check rear brake linings to make sure they are OK (never hurts to check them once in a while anyhow!!!)

Brake light on dashboard

First thing to check is the fluid level, but that is a pretty general warning light. Do your brakes feel excessively spongie or make any noises?
