Sounds like you have a blockage in the brake line going to the back breaks...maybe a kink in the brake line or maybe the junction piece (found attached to the bell housing in the back) that sends brake fluid to both breaks in the back is bad. Or your rear breaks need to be adjusted... I would say brake cylinders, but I doubt both would go out at the same time. Also check to make sure your master cylinder is working ok and there is no air in the line...try bleeding the back brakes to see if any fluid is getting to the brake cylinders in the back, this will tell you if you have a kink in the line or air...if it bubbles when you check (bleed the lines) then your problem is air in the line and should be bled until you get a solid flow of break fluid with no bubbles at all. If you want to know how to bleed the rear break just write me back and I will instruct you on how to do that.

Jammed brakes


if its the rear brakes probably the hand break has rusted on or the breakes have seized take wheels off and tap the rear hubs with a hammer not to hard as you could break the drums if this doesent work check behind the hubs and drums to see if there is any movment of the hand break cable if not these have seized or rusted on try spraying wd40 or equivalent into drums to try and release them

if its the front breakes the pads will have to be removed and the front pistons in the calipers will have to be check making sure that they are still in the cylinder runners and haven't poped out which they can if the breakes are very worn down usually to the metal hope this helps ivan

Rear breaks lock up at slow speeds. when traveling from 0 to 10 MPH if breaks are applied abruptly 1 or both of the rear wheels will lock up before the front breaks seem to engage, especially on wet road....


`right one of two problems ,firstly remove the rear drums and check for a fluid leak as a slight smear of fluid will cause the exact problems you describe ,if the rear shoes are dry then push the cylinder each side to make sure its not seized ,secondly check the load sensing valve which will be under the chassis above the back axle,if that appears ok and not seized then remove the master cylinder and take the piston out and check the rubbers and the cylinder bore for wear ,but mainly this fault is caused by the brake shoes having a slight amount of brake fluid contamination and it causes the brakes to grab

Hi, I have a problem with my parking break I drive a 94 ford mustang and never really use the break. The other day I had to apply the break and from then on the break is stuck engaged and will not release....


YOUR EMERGENCY BREAK CABLES ARE SIEZED IN THE HOUSING. WHEN YOU DONT USE THE BREAK THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO START RUSTING AND YOU WONT KNOW THIS UNTILL YOU FINNALLY USE THE BREAK AND ALL THE RUST IN THE CABLE BREAKS LOOSE AND JAMBS THE CABLE. THERE IS A CABLE FROM THE REAR DRUMS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CAR VERY UNLIKLY THIS WILL WORK BUT TRY LUBING THE OUT SIDE OF THE COVERING ON THE CABLE WITH A PENETRATION OIL AND WORK THE BREAK LEVER AND SEE IF THEY BREAK LOOSE

96 contour. left tail light, 1 and 2nd break light are out.


Everything works, more or less, so you know that the switches and fuses are good. That means that you've got either bulb problems or power/ground problems. First, try swapping the bulbs around to see if the "bad" lights will work with the known "good" bulbs in them. If so, you just need to replace some bulbs. If not, check the sockets inside and out for corrosion, clean them (wire brush, steel wool, sandpaper, etc.) if necessary, and use a voltmeter or automotive tester to make sure that you have power and ground to each socket. The fast flash on the turn signal is just an indicator that a bulb is out.

96 suburban steering wheel pulls to left when breakes are applied


Sometimes you may have a wheel bearing going bad. It is just a possibilty. I would take it to a general service shop and while the car is on a lift have them do a check of all wheels. If there is to much movement that may be your problem. I had a vehicle doing this, it was all over the road at times and it was a bearing going bad. Hope this helps.
