Your emergency brake wires are rusted and need to be replaced. While you have the rear wheels off it won't hurt to clean and lube the mechanical brake parts.

1984 ford ranger 4x4 2.8l is pulling hard to left and front left wheel is smoking and locking up


Dear Smoking And Locking.......
It sure sounds to me like you are having a brake issue on the lf of your vehicle..Obviously your lf brake assembly is not releasing.You could have a seized caliper, a restricted lf brake hose, a restricted brake line, or pad material that is unsafe, it's time to get those brakes inspected ASAP!!!! Brake repairs on that year of vehicle are fairly simple for the first timer....if you need any more help just get back to me ...THX HOPE I COULD HELP!!

Ford ranger back brakes locked up? what can cause this?


If NOT PARK BRAKE & / or Cables , THE BRAKE HOSE (RUBBER) from body to Axel can Fail on the INSIDE in a Way that it HOLDS Brake Fluid IN the Rear Axel (LINES) "STEAL" It sounds Strange But in My 30 years I have seen this MOSTLY on Front (Rubber) Hoses But also A Number of times, if you Crack it Loose on the AXEL side (Just After Semi HARD APPLYING of BRAKE) and it Drains Fluid FAST this is your Problem. Only OTHER Item Involved to HOLD BOTH WHEELS is> As I Said the PARK BRAKE MECHANISM & / OR CABLES.

2003 ford ranger parking brake won't fully release


sometimes back up a good 20 to 30 feet will do the trick. if that fails you can jack it up and remove the tire on the side you think it is stuck. Put a block of wood between the bolts and hit it with a rubber mallet until the brake releases. you'll have to play around with it a bit but it will release eventually. then either have to cable replaced or never use the emergency brake again your choice. Hope this helps.

Emergency brake LOCKED UP on my 97 ranger


The right emergency brake cable is probaly chafed through somewhere.Try wiggling the cable around and see if it backs off.More than likely you need to get the cable replaced.
