2004 dodge intrepid front end noise

Without a description of the noise, this is impossible to diagnose. Common problem with these vehicles is a "grinding" type noise. This will be a bearing that has gone bad or brake pads that are beyond the service life (louder screeching or grinding upon braking). Popping noises are the CV drive axles are bad (noise is typically louder when when the vehicle is in motion and turning).

Rear brakes grinding. intrepid

If you have rear disc brakes it is probably very low pads grinding on the rotor.If you have rear drums it is probably very low shoes.Now if you here it when your foot is off the brake then its a stuck caliper(needing replaced) for disc or a stuck piston (also needing replaced) for drums

Emergency brake is stuck and won't release on 1994 dodge intrepid how can i release the brake

Get yourself a large hammer and hit the back side of your rear drums. This should break the e-brake loose. Make sure the brake is released inside the car when you do this. What has happened is that brake dust or rust is keeping the brake shoes engaged with the drums.
