If you are unable to do it yourself, you may want to take it to a repair shop and have them pull off the rear drums and make sure none of the hardware (springs, clips, etc.) have come loose and are dragging inside the drum. Hope this helps.

Rear brakes making scrubbing noise


Time to change them. It;s a small piece of metal scrubbing the rotor letting you know to change them. If there not change soon, you will have grooves worn into the rotors/drums and all this will have to be re-surfaced or re-placed.

Locked rear wheels


you will have to try to move it. or you need to remove the wheels, brakes. if it has drums you can adjust them away from the shoes and it will spin free. if it has disc you may need to remove the calipers and then the pads. then remove the discs and clean them or replace them and the pads. go with an organic set of pads and they will not rust stuck again

make sure that you have the springs in the right positions. look very closly. i had the same problem one time and it turned out that i had the sprng in backwars and it was striking the drum. the best thing to do i drive it for a while like 10 15 miles kilomerts and then take off the drums again. look around for springss that are worn shiny paint missing. it could also be a piece of rust caught in there somewhere

Take it in and have it checked, may just need an adjustment but don't take any chances. A piece of hardware could have come loose, fix it now before you damage your new drums.

I replaced the head gasket on my 97 Sunfire it doesn't start


If your timing is off you will have no power.check and make sure all timing mark's are correct.Some engine's are contact motor's,which mean's if your timing is off you could cause damage to valve's or piston's.Also you should do a compression test to be sure each cylinder has adequite pressure.Hope this help's.

Rear right brake locks and studders


Get your caliber replaced and if it still has the factory rotor also get that replaced. Recommended to get both replaced at the same time.
