The linkage could need to be adjusted. Or the brake shoes inside the rear drums are worn out and need to be replaced. If you accidentally drive the brake on. It doesn't take long to wear those brake shoes out. You can normally smell them when that happens. On today's vehicles they are actually designed with 3 different brake systems. Front brake disc and rotors, rear disc and rotors, and inside the rear brake rotor their is a small brake drum where the emergency brake shoes are located. The only purpose for the shoes and drums is emergency brake only (normally). Hope this helps.

Right Side Brakes keep holding and not releasing


Hi Tommy, I'm glad to help! There are only 5 things that can cause brakes to hold: (1) Calipers are sticking. NOTE: There are several reasons calipers stick, there are internally frozen meaning you need new calipers. Here's how to check them release the nut that holds the hose to the caliper when the fluid bleed out and the calipers do not release pressure from the brakes then they are internally frozen, replace them. (2) Hose's are calapsed internally. You check the hoses in the same way, release the bolt and if the calipers DO Release pressure from the brakes then you know it's the hoses. (3) The actual metal lines going to the back of the Vehicle could be damaged. Example: One time one of the rear brakes would not release pressure and I found where the line goes acroos the rear axle something had hit the line and smashed it flat and so it was holding brake pressure on the wheel. (4) Let's not forget how much dirt and grime builds up on the brakes themselves. Example: I found one time where the LANDS where the brake shoes slide were so dirty that the brake pad itself was stuck and holding the brake pressure on that wheel. (5) The Master Cylinder, not very often, but I have seen the ports in the master cylinder clog-up and will not bleed back to release brake pressure. This is a few thing for you to check out that will help you find the problem yourself and save you money. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Tommy.

What holds the front rotors from coming off, while doing brake job.


Your brake calipers hold the rotor on, take off the two bolts that hold on the caliper. If you don't know what the caliper is follow the brake line .Where it ends is the caliper and it should be holding two brake pads.

The dash lights related to the emergenct brakes come on and off, the brake lamps indicator stays on and the ABS now and then. The trunk gets water when it rains and I think it leaks around the tail lights....


I changed all the bulbs in the tail lights after cleqaning all the connections, then sealed the lens around the trunk with clear silicone sealant. This solved most of the problem. The rain would get in around the lens and short the connections. The emergency brake light indicator and the ABS indicator still go on and off, but I havent checked the sensor yet.

What kind of maintenance should i do for my truck?


If you have never replaced the serpentine belt, I'd suggest doing that (keep the old one as an emergenct spare). I'd also change the differential fluid and fuel filter.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .
