Sounds like the hand brake is binding on, after you've reversed it back say 200yd's if possible feel for heat in the centre of the rear wheels, if they are warm/hot it's most likley you'll need to strip the brakes down before you'll be able to fix the fault

I have 2002 mazda b2500 4x2 pickup every now and then i can smell the clutch burning out and it feels like my brakes are holding me back slightly. Was wondering if this is common and is it more likely that...


It could be either one. Best way to find out is to lift the vehicle and turn the tires and see which one is dragging. It could be the hand brake cable, if both back tires seem to drag. It could be brake hoses. best way to check is find the tire/ tires dragging and release the pressure at the bleed valve. if it releases the brake then I recommend you replace all the brake hoses. if it doesn't release then replace the caliper. If you haven't done a brake job on this vehicle, maybe now is a good time

1999 Buick Regal GS gear shift knob button is stuck to release


Check in your fuse panel. The top first row and the first fuse. I took that fuse out and had the same problem. My gear shift button was stuck. I put the fuse back in and it worked.

Engine is straining to pull the car


Try to coast real slow in a parking lot, put the car in "N" and let it roll. when it stops, does it fell like the brakes are dragging? if so get the brakes checked out ASAP.

This car has regular shoes on the back not disc. Replace shoes and adjust cable. No parking brake is a sign of worn out shoes. Regals have rear disc on them for this year.

Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.
