Question about Buick Park Avenue

The brakes seem to be on all the time - Park Avenue Buick Cars & Trucks

    I can't tell if the brakes are on or the axle is damaged. The car seems to roll forward fine, but I can't drive it in reverse for more than a couple of feet. Any more, and something stops it from rolling backward - suddenly, with a grind.

Hi Steve,
The clutch and brake problems are separate. The clutch problem would seem to be a worn clutch plate and or pressure plate. These will need replacement which means the removal of the gearbox.
The brake shudder could be caused by broken or loose brake parts, but is more likely to be caused by worn brake discs, which will require either skimming or replacement.

When was the last time the brake fluid was flushed? Spongy/unresponsive brakes can sometimes be due to moisture/air in the brake lines. You can take the wheel off and get someone to push the brake peddle and see if the brake caliper is moving at all. If it is moving, but not enough to stop the wheel, I'd recommend flushing the brake fluid. If the caliper is not moving at all, it could be the caliper itself (but its very unlikely that both would go bad at the same time)
