When I put on the brakes there is a shush sound and it is really hard to stop the car, this morning when I started the car I shifted into gear and put on the brakes to pull out of the parking and it died and now it won't start. not even a wah wah sound, absolute silence except for the cussing.

It sounds like you have a problem with the brake booster. It uses vacuum created by the engine in the inlet manifold to assist you with brake pressure. Have a look at the brake booster. A large round canister that sits on the firewall behind the master cylinder(where you add brake fluid) There is a hose leading from it to the inlet manifold. Inspect this hose for leaks/cracks. If this does not solve the problem remove the hose from the inlet manifold. Plug the hole with your thumb and have someone start the vehicle. If it starts, put the hose back remove the other end from the booster, plug with the thumb and start again. If it fires up again you will need to replace the booster. This will unfortunately produce more cussing. Both when you purchase the booster and when you remove it.

1999 Yukon Denali stop shifting out of park.


Check the brake lights when this happens, if they are not on then you have found the problem it is the brake light circuit. Go under the dash if the brick lights don't work and check the brake light switch above the brake pedal, it should have 12 volts in and out with the brake pedal pushed down. See typical brake light switch location below. #4 in diagram is brk lite switch.

My 2008 chevrolet impala gear shift is stuck in park. After working and wiggling it a lil, it shifts into gear. This started last night. When leaving work it was fine. After i picked my son up from...


This is a common issue on '06+ Impalas, and is most frequent when parking on an incline. It can be minimized by engaging the parking brake before putting the car in Park.

Your brake light switch system controls the shift interlock system, you'll need to check that system first.
Could be a shift interlock swith has gone faulty or the linkage is out of adjustment.

Check that link out, could be a solenoid issue or it could be that a wiring harness is going bad/fried:

Is it possible that the sound is happening every time you hit 14 mph after a fresh start? The TC does a ABS check 14 mph that runs the pump for a second.

Hard to put truck in gear it feels like it is going to break.


Hello;
It sounds as if the interlock from the brake is out of adjustment. You have to put your foot on the brake in order to move the gear shift lever. There is an adjustment for this. Hope this helps.
