Question about 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
My wifes 96 caprice started to feel like the brakes were sticking mostly in reverse but nowhere near as bad forward this was a few days after i changed the frount pads. when i checked they both seam to work fine i still cleaned up the bolts and where the caliper slides. thought for sure the rear had to be it but had both tires off to try and bleed them and they arnt even working that i can deal with but why dose it still feel like the brakes are on. you really got to rev it up the tranys ingaged can feel it go into gear and mostly reverse seams to get tighter as when going forward it seams to loosen. my previous experiance with tranny failure is slipping and eventually wont engage when i feel hers ingage and not slip i think brakes i just thought maybe axel bearings?
Ok, Ck for residual pressure at fron and rear by crackking open the bleeders Use a box wrench so you can see if they squirt. Protect your eyes. If they have residual pressur, the front is acceptable but very little, The back should have none. Next, make sure the rear brakes are not too tight or overadjusted and you can pull on the parking brake cable and feel the slack. The brakes at the rear tighten with forward wheel rotation. If they are in full contact with the drum rhey will tighten up on their own, causing them to drag. They won't lock up becase there is no pressure to keep them against the drum until you push the peddal. Let me know if any more help is needed. _Ned
