U need to pull the rear drum off to see what's going on. Check to see if the brakes and drum look wet. There may be a leak in the brake cylinder or axle seal. The leaking oil/brake fluid can cause what u describe. Does this happen all the time, or only after using the brakes for a while? If there is some type of fluid leak, it needs to be fixed, and your should replace the brake shoes and all hardware. Let me know what u find, or if u need further help.

I have an 88 ford 350 and lost the key and it is stuck in off position i am trying to change it but dont know how


First remove the negative battery cable.
It has to be in the LOCK position...
remove the steering wheel.
on tilt wheel applications, remove the upper extension shroud by squeezing it at the top and bottom positions and popping it free of the retaining plate at the right.
remove the 2 trim shroud halves.
disconnect the ignition switch electrical connector.
drill out the break off head bolts connecting the switch to the lock cylinder housing by using a
1/8 in. drill, and remove both bolts.
disengage the ignition switch from the actuator pin.

Steering wheel is locked. can't turn key


Try rocking the steering wheel slightly (it should turn just a little bit) while gently trying to turn the key. Sometimes if you turn the ignition off (to the lock position) too quickly, the steering wheel will be forced to turn slightly by the power steering pump as the engine comes to a stop. When turning the ignition off in the future, only turn the key back 1 notch to shut the engine off first. Then, after the engine has stopped, finish turning the key to the lock position.

Rear passenger side wheel/brake locking at first touch of pedal


You possibly have air in your lines. When you bleed them you need to start at the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. If you are certain you have no air in the line then you have a bad brake hose/brake line. Replace this and your problem should go away. If not then the culprit should be the distribution or master cylinder. I hope this helps.

Rear wheel brakes lock up


It could be a couple of things..Either you have a fluid leak and its getting on the brake pads making them grab or it could be the abs system itself.. There is a speed sensor on the rear axle which also controls the abs.. That can be changed easily and isnt too expensive.. Kip
