You have a stucked brakes, possible cause is clogged flexible brake hose, to find, compare temp of each wheel after running, the stucked brake would be hottest. check and replace, sometimes the bracket that holds the hose become rusted and compresses the hose, if so just remove rust on the bracket and problem solved. if not, replace hose.

Car rolls back when you let off the gas


This is not uncommon. Pretty much any vehicle that does not have what is called "Hill Assist" is going to want to roll backwards when on a hill and the brake pedal is released. Millions of vehicles are not designed to remained stopped in place, on a hill, with no brakes applied.

I'm driving an automatic gear car. At traffic light, do I put gear to neutral and pull handbrake, or do I continue to step on the brake. Any difference on either action.


just keep your foot on the brake. It cannot do any damage, the auto box is designed for this

If you put in neutral you risk making a mistake and selecting reverse. or may not select gear inadvertantly on a hill and roll backwards.

I HAVE A 2001 AZTEK AND WHEN ON AN UPHILL INCLINE STOPPED, YOU MUST KEEP FOOT ON BRAKE OR VEHICLE WILL ROLL BACKWARDS


This is normal, depending on the depth of the hill. This is frequent with standard/manual cars on uphills, they can roll back, but with automatic vehicles they usually have a small amount of throttle, (you'll notice this when putting your vehicle from park into drive with your foot off the break, it'll start slowly moving forward)
Now on the hill, if it's a steep incline your car will move backwards, it all depends on how high your throttle (the car itself) is, and the incline depth of the hill.

Car wont roll forward or back even in neutral


I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

95 325 is e-brake doesn't fully engage


Adjustment will usually help, but try parking with front pointing down hill next time.(back in, apply E brake .) Emergency brakes usually hold better/well when vehicle front heading down hill. If it doesn't hold with front pointing down, then rear brakes need attention.
