I replaced my rear brakes. Does the emergency brake automatically adjust itself?


Yes.....and no. Emergency brake should have been checked during brake pad replacement.
Most do adjust to new pads...ie: return to factory adjustment setting due to new pads .

The E brake lever should be applying braking to the wheels after three clicks are heard during application of the Emergency brake.

Lift rear of car and apply emergency brake to the third click. Now both rear wheels should drag equally but not be locked up.
.
If not, adjustment required.

However, late model cars need a scanner to pull back the pistons and install pads.

Is the emergency brake on a 2005 malibu maxx lt a disc or drum brake


The emergency brake is just a cable that runs to the rear brakes of the car to actuate the rear brakes, so what ever your rear brakes are.

Cant depress brake caliper to replace pads


disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job


You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...

Help with doing pads and rotors in back.


Interesting!... What/Where did you hear about 'factory bolts shearing" I've done some research and have found NOTHING with regard to this. The rear brake service procedure is no different than the front (except, you must release the emergency brake in order to remove the rear rotors). I don't understand your concern. I sincerely hope you are resurfacing (remachining) rotors and replacing pads. It's important rotors be remachined (resurfaced) when replacing pads... if not, rotors can overheat and wear out faster than their normal lifetime.

Whistling sound coming from the rear when car is in motion.


If the whistling changes when applying brakes it is just your warning indicator letting you know that the pads are getting very thin.
You did not give a more detailed description so I hope this helps.
