Hi, it sounds like you need to replace your rotors. They are the round disks that your brakes clamp onto. They are most likely warped. If I recall the montana sv6 has rotors on the front and back.

Locked in parkafter sitting 6 months

One thing to try before major work is this.
-Get someone to sit in the car. Their job is to operate the foot brake if needed.
-release the E brake if it is on.
-Get someone to help you rock the car forward and back with a bit of force four or five times.
The weight of the car may have caused the Park mechanism inside the transmission to dry out and stick as the fluid has settled to the bottom of the case.

2003 Lincoln Town Car - won't go out of park. I haven't been able to find the fuse for that relay. Also the A/C and clock aren't working.

Are you on any kind of incline that is putting pressure on the transmission? It does not take much of an incline to do this. Have someone help you by rocking the vehicle back and forth with the keys in the ignition but the engine OFF and foot off the brake and parking brake OFF. When it is rocking (forward and backward, not side to side) then try to take it out of park. To help you with this problem in the future (if this is the cause), put the parking brake on first THEN put the vehicle in Park.

Engine cuts out, steering locks on braking - scary! Help!

What is possibly happening is when you brake, there is a vacuum leak caused by the power brake system, this reduces the engine rpm, which in turn effects the power steering which makes it feel like the steering is locking up. This can also happen with a vacuum leak anywhere in the engine or things like a faulty idle adjustment control.... Turn the vehicle on, place your foot on the brake, if the idle speed increases dramatically you have a problem. Then put the vehiclein drive with your foot on the brake. If it nearly dies, again, you have an issue.
There are many different things on an engine that can create vacuum leaks. EGR Valves, IAC solenoid, PCV valves, the list goes on....
Good luck finding this particular issue!

hand brakes generally use back brakes (why their good for drifts) and normal foot brake use the front so yes i would definitely get them changed.

Why does my volvo rock when stopped at lights, sounds like it's going to cut off?

Probably a bad spark plug (wire, rotor, cap) causing the engine to misfire. Roll down the window and see what you hear. Pop the hood (when parked) and see if the whole engine is jumping from side to side.

Isuzu Rodeo 1998 foot on brake it makes a metalic grinding noise

you are correct it is the brakes... you could have a rock in them but if its been going on for a long while that is doubtful i suggest getting your brakes checked soon as possible if your brakes are wore down that bad it can actually fall out and cause you to be stranded and also ruin your rotors if they havent already
