Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

Spongy brakes after car sitting at sideways slope angle

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix. The brakes were fine until yesterday when the car slid on ice, off edge of road onto the bank. It was sitting at about a 30 degree sideways angle. The e-brake light came on. We pulled it back onto the road, but now the e-brake light is on and the brake pedal is very spongy. I looked underneath and did not see any leaks or broken brake lines. I checked around the master cylinder and didn't see any leaks. The reservoir is rather low, but not empty. Could it be that the master cylinder just sucked in some air while it was sitting sideways?

    I topped off the reservoir and pumped the pedal, and their was a leak. Now I need to see about a replacement brake line. Do they sell a replacement of the entire length, or do I have to buy a coil and flare it?

If your missing brake fluid you go a leak some were. Have the car put on a lift and looked at you can't see all leaks by just looking under the car.

It could be that your brake fluid reservoir is empty. You might also have a crack in the line.

When I try to shift from park to drive it gets tight at reverse as if doesn't want go but once out of reverse it shift normally until shifting back to park when I have to go threw reverse then it tightens...


Is it only when you go from park to reverse? Or is it just as bad going from neutral to reverse? I've noticed on mine that it's often tight if I park on even a slight slope. If it only happens when going from park to reverse, try this. Hold your foot on the brake, and put the car in drive. Keeping constant pressure on the brake, go back to park, then back into drive. Did you feel the stiffness when you had your foot on the brake?
