Can the breaks of a oldsmobile silouete lock up and act like the tranmision went out


But the ABS Braking System --can do funny things-- if you
have a light lite on dash

The transaxle may have failed

It is about due for a rebuild after 13 years

Brakes are going to the floor on my 98 siouette olsmobile. What do I check?

Either the master cylinder or the brake booster. You could have a broken rusted out brake line somewhere else. A reputable mechanic should be able to diagnose it fairly quickly.
Thank you,

I have a 2000 Alero and have front wheel drive. My front left tire will rotate to go forward but as soon as I put the car in reverse the tire will rotate a little bit but than stops and drags with the car....

Sounds like a brake issue to me, like the caliper sticking. I've taken the axle, brakes and hub/wheel assemblies off these many times, pretty simple. If you choose to DIY, I would suggest you buy a Haynes manual....about $20 well worth the investment. The crunching sound maybe a damaged pad, or something that got lodged in there. You have my curiosity, wish I could see it for myself! :) If you aren't a DIYer, take it to a place that does free brake checks, I suspect you may possibly need a new caliper.

My husband went to start the van, turned the key the and electricity shutdown and the van wouldn't start, can someone help?

If the electric was there when he got in, then went away when he turned the key, there may be a loose battery connection at the battery. I would open the hood, and verify these cables are tight.Good luck...Coop

2000 bravada, 4 wheel drive will NOT disengage, help

try putting in 2 wheel, make sure hubs are locked if you have manual locking hubs, then drive backwards 4-5 feet and it should disengage then.
