SOURCE: front brakes are sticking on

Ok Have you recently replaced the pads? Do they act normal after they cool down? Are the pads in good condition, pads that are so worn that the caliper pistons come out beond their normal limit may stick there due to excessively worn pads. If so make sure they are at least factory grade quality Good are bendix, the only thing that can cause your symptoms is a bad master cylinder because it affects BOTH front calipers equally if it was a caliper it is likely to affect only ONE. Let me ask you this happens after driving in heavy traffic or after along drive?
If So there have been countless cases of boiling brake fluid, Old Brake Fluid gathers moisture and its boiling point is lowered, Fluch out ALL the old brake fluid and have new put it.

also is there any chance even the slightest chance that something other than brake fluid even a drop or two is enough to do damage. has been added to the master cylinder at any time? If so you need to replace EVERY PART IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM INCLUDING THE ABS CONTROLLER THAT HAS ANY RUBBER PIECES IN IT CALIPERS HOSES WHEEL CYLINDERS,MASTER CYLINDER just for your information.
I believe you have a bad master cylinder but do not buy a rebuilt one only bran new and preferably from the dealer.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you give me a good rating if you feel my information is helpful.
Thank you ,Randy

SOURCE: front brakes stick on

either your calipers are sticking and need replacing. OR the hoses have failed internally. and need replacing.. very rare but possible the master cylinder is not allowing the fluid to return usually caused bu a booster failing and causing some down travel in the master cylinder. I'd start by raising the front end up. appling hard brake pressure. turn the tire.. then loosen the brake bleeder to check for pressure. if the bleeder sprays fluid and the brakes release forget the calipers. if they are still tight then replace the calipers. pump them up again if they released.. and break the line free at the master cylinder. if they don't release then replace the hoses..

SOURCE: Transmission Fluid. Pontiac G6. 2006

The trannsmission is a sealed unit and there is no dipstick. Check to see if you have a leak. More than likely it sounds like your low on fluid at least a 1/2 to a whole quart. Since these are sealed units it should be taken to the dealership to have looked at. If there is not any leaks then I would add 1/2 qt of tranny fluid and try driving so see if it helped. If it helped a little but the same problems are still there add another 1/2 qt. If it doesnt solve the problem then your tranny needs to be looked at.

SOURCE: can't find the transmission dip stick and power

You wont fine one because There is no dipstick. The transmission is equipped with a check plug on the transmission behind the engine underneath and design for professional service technician. the engine has to be running and the plug removed with transmission being level. If any fluid comes out then the level is ok

When i accelerate i hear a vibrating noise from the front passenger side of the car. any ideas on what it may be? Also i've noticed that after ive been parked for a few ours with my ebrake on my bakes...


The vibration could be several things from a tire out of balance to a problem with the front drive axle on that side, CV joint bad or a wheel bearing bad. If the brakes only stick after you use the e-brake it could be a problem with the cable not releasing all the way.

ANTI LOCK BRAKES WORK SOME TIMES AND MESS UP OTHER


ABS has a sensor which is basically like a metal blade which sticks into the tire attachment into grooves.As the tire turns,the blade senses the RPM.When you brake suddenly,the sensor tells the computer when your tire is about to skid and releases brake pressure.It applies and releases brake pressure very quickly so as not to cause a skid.One of these may be going bad.A computer check can tell you quickly,but you probably know about computer application pricing.If you want to buy one and switch tires every couple days you could probably find out,but it would be very tedious.Good luck.

Vibes have had a number of problems, so this could be one of them. These brake systems are ultra-sensitive to contaminated brake fluid - make absolutely sure they completely flushed the system and replaced the brake fluid when they replaced the master cylinder.
