Sounds like warped front disc brake rotors and/or out of round rear drums. Some also had rear disc brakes also. Have brakes inspected. Have steering and suspension looked at also.Loose steering or suspension wont cause a vibration but will exaggerate bad brakes or tires.Always be sure your vehicle can stop and steer safely! Hope this helps. Please rate me.

Most likely a bad vacuum brake booster. They leak internally and cause a lean fuel mixture when you apply the brakes.

How do i replace the parking brake lever on a 2000 pontiac grandam


I have the same problem, the brake works but the lever will not lock in the up position. The ratchet and pawl seems to be stuck in the release position, I went to this site and the mechanic stated that the lever should be replaced, apparently there are no replacement parts, you have to buy the whole assembly. I'm still trying to find a lever assembly at a reasonable price.

Sometimes a caliper or wheel cylinder will sieze, usually temporarily. This puts twice the amount of pressure on the other side of the system. Recommendation: turn your car on, take off the parking brake, and press really hard on the brake pedal. This will usually break the offending piston free, and you will be good to go for a long time. If this doesn't work, then you'll have to figure out which one it is, and change it out. Hope it works for you.
