I always take a big ball peen hammer to (about where the tread meets the sidewall) on outside or inside of tire. Make sure that you don't hit the rim, the vehicle or your self while swinging. It usually takes a few good hits to get these off. Provide you remove the lugnuts first, of course : )!

Left front tire locks up when weight is applied. Works when both tires are off the ground and free wheeling. Also the brake caliper seems to not release the pressure when the brakes are released.

you probably have a seized wheel bearing/hub assembly or frozen brake caliper - you can remove the wheel hub/bearing assembly yourself in about an hour with common hand tools (an impact wrench will really speed this up) - you can rent the wheel nut removal socket at most auto parts stores - you will have to have an automotive shop with a bearing press to remove and replace the wheel bearing ($30-$60) - if the caliper is seized - replace the entire assembly (and probably the ruined brake rotors and pads)

1996 Ford Taurus. After parking car and returning, the ignition key will not turn, the steering wheel is locked in place and Parking gear is frozen. What to do.

try to turn the wheel so that the steering wheel dose not have a load on it while truning the key also you may want to try and "wiggle" the shifter if it is located on the colum.

Rear brake sticking

Your saying as you drive it locks and skids? You say as you try to pull out the wheel is shuck and it won't turn? Or your saying that you detect that the wheel is dragging and the wheel turns fine? Is the other rear wheel sticking? The parking brake pedal is it all the way up? With the pedal up are the parking braek cables under the truck going to rear wheels tight or taugt but moving or slack and hanging. As this cable enters the hosing going to the rear wheel about an inch from the housing ( cable Housing ) clamp on a pair of vise grips or other locking pliers and hit them with a hammer towards the rear wheel. As your trying to make the cable go back as much as it's going to. Check both sides as it's possible that thier frozen in the cold weather. It's wise to avoid using the parking break in cold weather as they get mositure in them over time and with them frozen on the brake wil stick. If you find the cables slack with the pedal released and beating them back towards the wheel does'nt seem to be releasing the break you may need to heat the cable with a tourch to free them. The other answer is the rear break came aprt someway and the break shoes are bound up against the drum. The wheel bearing is possible too unless you can tell is the break.

I recently released the parking brake on my 1999 malibu. It has been sitting for about a year with it on. The right rear wheel remained locked. Cable does not seem to be broken.


The brake shoes themselves would be frozen or rusted on the inside of the rear wheel. you will need to remove it and spray some penetrating lubricant in it to get to work again.

Hope this helps

My car drives fine when i shift to thired to fourth into fifth my motor runs and the tranmission seems to drag those gears could it be fluid manual or vacume hose

does it seem like the motor goes faster than the car if so than your clutch is slipping and in need of replacing,but if it feels like its holding you back then it could be the emergency brake is hanging up and slightly applied maybe the cable is frozen or something of that nature if so jack up car and spin wheels at rear to see if they are free wheeling, hope this helps you.
