Why when I come to a stop I let off the brake and car will not move?
When I come to a stop I let off the brake and car just sets there like in neutaral. I give it some gas and have to get the rpms up and then it hits hard like being rear ended and goes. Only does this from a stop

Our Rendez. has also done the same thing over the last 2 years, usually when it's warmer weather. It only happens 1-2 times per summer, so I've just ignored it. Not worth the time to pay someone to look into it. Let me know if you get a good solution.

Sounds like your brake calipers have locked up. Also, make sure the emergency brake is not engaged. Please don't continue to drive this car until you can get it fixed. I would take the car to someone you trust to inspect your brake system. I would plan on replacing the calipers, rotors and pads.

rear end (I use and electronic stethoscope to find all that)
but rear end. is a big place..
bad U-joints top that list (repeat)
bad axle bearings.
brakes bad, there. or the warning devices there for early brake warn.
bad 3rd member, gear sets or bearings in same or pinion.
my guess is car is moving right>
if not moving ,its dying rat up in there.or loose parts.
Apply service brake pedal three times with a force of approximately 175 lbs.
Fully apply and release parking brake three times. Full application may require two pedal strokes.
Raise and support vehicle, then mark relationship between wheel and axle flange.
Check parking brake pedal assembly for full release as follows:
Turn ignition switch to On position.
If ``Brake\'\' lamp is illuminated, operate manual brake release and pull downward on front parking brake cable to remove slack from pedal assembly.
Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies, then install two lug nuts to retain each rotor assembly.
If two parking brake levers on both calipers are not against lever stops on caliper housings, check for binding in rear cables and/or loosen cables at adjuster until both left and right levers are against their stops.
Tighten parking brake cable at adjuster until either the left or right lever begins to move off the stop, then loosen adjustment until lever moves back barely touching stop.
Operate parking brake several times to check adjustments. A firm pedal feel should be obtained by pumping pedal two full strokes and rear wheels should not rotate forward when parking brake is fully applied.
Install wheel and tire assemblies, aligning marks made in step 3.
SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE PARKING BRAKE . 1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down. 2. Move gearshift lever to neutral. 3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice. If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two. 4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running). 5. Exit the vehicle. 6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors. 7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command). SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE REMOTE CONTROL 1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down. 2. Move gearshift lever to neutral. 3. Apply parking brake. 4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ). 5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running). 6. Exit the vehicle. 7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command). http://www.astrostart.com/Support/Guides.aspx
i replaced the caliper and then the caliper brake hose, and i drive it 3 to 6 miles and drivers side hangs up again, let it set for about 20 minutes and then i can drive it another 6 miles before it hangs up again, new brakes, new caliper, new hose, so what is making my front drivers side brake hang up?
I have the same year car, first check the brake fluid level, (under the hood driverside in the back behind the coolant resivoir). If it is full check the E-brake because since it is a foot brake you can strech the wire and when you stop and go, the wire moves now and light is triggerd...
it will be located next to the brake pedal arm. removing it and replacing it is not that hard. adjustments to make it work correctly is simply moving it set the plunger to operate the brake lights when the brakes pedal is pushed down
When you release the parking brake, the handle goes down, but the cable in the casing is probably not moving. When you drive away, your parking brake is still set. The movement of the wheels against the brake shoes (or discs) produces heat pretty quickly and causes the brakes to release (at least enough so that there is no longer any contact between the brake shoe or disc and the brake drum or rotor).
The casing normally runs from the back of each hub to a point somewhere forward where they come close together so the brake handle can pull both brake cables at once. The casings could be lubbed, but that is something you probably want a garage to try to do (pretty messy, spraying lub into a casing with the cable is in it, and not a guaranteed solution unless both cables are disconnected, removing from the casings, and cleaned).
Probably the best thing to do to solve the problem in the short run is NOT to set the parking brake in very cold weather.
Hope this is helpful.
check your motor mounts by holding your foot on the brakes, set the E-brake and have someone watch the motor as you shift into reverse and touch the gas a little bit do the same in drive if the motor moves allot back and forth you need new motor and possibly transmission mounts good luck and please rate -jeff
