1975 cadillac coup deville acts like brakes or parking brakes are locked up engaged. In a bind and will barely move in gear. parking brake pedal is up in the disengaged position. Help?


It is not unusual for the parking brake cable assembly to seize due to corrosion. Also, the rear brakes are self-adjusting when backing up and can eventually wind up by themselves until they lock up. Start by removing the rear wheels and checking the brake shoe assemblies. Due to the age of the vehicle, this can be quite a chore, as the brake adjuster may have to be manually backed off before the brake drums will come off. Also, if the brake cable is seized, you may have to remove/manually loosen it as well. It is a part that needs lubricating periodically so it works freely, and may need to be replaced.

What would cause my 1999 town & country not to move in any gear


Make sure that your axles aren't broken. If you have a broken axle the power would transfer to the wheel with the least amount of resistance (to the broken axle) therefore not propelling the vehicle. Also look at your fluid level and condition. It is possible that the transmission is slipping in which case you'd need a transmission/rebuild.

2005 chrysler town and country when i start the van it shaking vibration hard in park and in reverse it and in neutral and in drive it perfect.it drives good on highways no shaking


try to increase the idle-rpm..
Example - at standstil condition when you start your van, have look at rpm... say 1000 or 1200 or 1500.. whatever it may be..
Keep idle-rpm a little bit higher, if previously it was 1200rpm then set it to 1500 rpm..
If the problem is solved then..
1) clean ur airfilter
2) check spark plug condition
good or bad... if bad then replace..
3) check fuel supply line, if it is damaged or folded

This is not really a weekend mechanic type job a more delicate operation that needs a proper trained mechanic to locate and repair the problem,i think it may be a seized wheel cylinder or a sticky caliper and without stripping it myself and having a good look myself i wouldnt know so you will have trust your local mechanic to do it for you

The wheels turning opposite is normal. It's how the differential works. You need to get the transmission checked out by a qualified tranny person.
