1966 chevy caprice pulls to the left ONLY when brakes are applied

There is a "star wheel" accessed thru a slot on the backside of the "wheel". When you put a brake adjusting tool in that slot moving the tool up turns the wheel in one direction, moving the tool down turns it in the other direction. I don't remember which direction is which but you can tell after once you start turning the star wheel.

The tire needs to be off the ground. Tighten or loosen the brakes until you can freely sping the tire by hand.

A screwdriver can be used to do this, but it's much more difficult than with a brake too.

2005 Dodge Neon SE steering and handling. Car pulls to one side

this may be due to a tire cord separating inside the tire, this will cause the exact symptom's u have, consult a tire shop for a most likely free inspection.

YEs brakes can do this for sure! If its rotational or rhythmical it has to do with your wheel. Take off your driver side tire and inspect brake pads. At 65k miles you are most likely due for some new brake pads. DOnt take it to the dealer they will charge you a fortune.
