    That's not normal... my 96 Sunfire is doing the same thing except I live in WI and when it snows there are times that I literally cannot stop. The back drums lock up so the ABS starts kicking in even though the front brakes could still let me stop. So the ABS is pumping the front brakes even though it doesnt have to which will make it take 20+ yards to stop from 20mph if theres fresh snow.

Its normal it is just the road is wet so less traction on the tire so slips and when water gets into rotors it tend to slip not like when it dry.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

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 shoe.as 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.

1996 pontiac sunfire. when i brake the front tire "wobbles" or shakes back and forth then stops and aims to the left pulling the car to the left... any suggestions? i think its he control arm.


your probably right check for your control arm bushing and check for your caliper to make sure is working properly and also for a proper disk brake not glossy and blue (overheating) sign of your caliper is not working properly and sometime a bad balljoint can do some :(back and forth movement to).....lipak!!......
